The Friday beer: Stone's vanilla bean smoked porter

Oct 14, 2011

With the change in seasons comes a different style of beer, and these cooler and gray days are perfect for sipping on a porter. I've enjoyed Stone Brewing Co.'s Smoked Porter before, and when I saw a special release of the vanilla bean version on tap, I knew I had to give this rare find a try.

The taste: Dark and rich with chocolate and coffee flavors and a bit of smokiness
Brewery: Stone Brewing Co.
Consumed at: Noble Fir
Alcohol by volume: 5.9%
