STONE SMOKED PORTER WITH CHOCOLATE & ORANGE PEEL
This newest seasonal variation on Stone Smoked Porter develops a fine tan head on top of a deep chestnut body as it settles in the glass. Aromas of peat, citrus peel and black coffee dominate, followed by baker’s cocoa and dark roasted malt. The taste begins with the rich, smokiness of peat-smoked malt, which gives way to sharp citrus oil and bitter orange. The orange flavors continue throughout, where they mingle with chocolate, roasted grains, and a pleasant balance of clean, spicy hops in the finish. The medium body and carbonation of Stone Smoked Porter with Chocolate & Orange Peel carries the beer effortlessly across the palate, and has just enough sweetness to make it the perfect match for a range of cuisine.
Serve in a pint glass at 40-45 F.
Suggested Food Pairings: The smoky, bittersweet flavors of Stone Smoked Porter with Chocolate & Orange Peel work well with goat cheese, slow-smoked brisket, and our Smoked Porter Dark Chocolate Layer Cake (made with Stone Smoked Porter with Chocolate & Orange Peel, of course!)
