Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean

Unfortunately, this was one of the many January entries whose notes have strangely disappeared. In any case, I thought I should just create a stub for it.

Having liked the Stone Smoked Porter, I probably loved the Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean.


Finally after many attempts to try this beer, and one success at drinking it (20140109) but subsequently losing the notes on it, I have tried this beer and it is accompanied by some notes!

I loved the subtle chocolate smell. There was also a light maltiness on the nose.

The taste was nice and carbonated, and had a texture which was slightly thicker than a watery beer.

For a moment I felt like I could taste the vanilla bean, but I was not entirely sure.

Regardless, I liked the overall flavor of the beer.

After completing my share of the bottle, I reiterated that I liked the bear and further observed that the final sips tasted slightly sour. 6:19PM PT
