Always on the hunt for small-batch & experimental beers? Thursdays are your hot ticket! We’re tapping a special creation from the brewhouse at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, where our Brewing Manager, Kris Ketcham, conjures up a slew of unique and experimental brews. We pour through these limited-release beers until they run out, so early birds, worms: all that jazz.
Style: Stone Smokeless Porter w/Orange and Vanilla
Appearance: Dark Brown with a light tan foam
Aroma: Cocoa, coffee, vanilla, orange (creamsicle)
Taste: Nose carries over with more vanilla, citrus and earthy-bitter chocolate
Palate: A light to medium-body, with slight bitterness and dry finish
Overall: A take on the classic Stone Smoked Porter with no Peat Smoked Malt and with Vanilla Bean and Orange Peel added. Reminiscent of a creamsicle with some earthy chocolate and roasted coffee notes.
Reason Behind Name: The idea behind the name is take regular stone beers and break off from what we know them to be.
