Driftwood Brewery Black Stone Porter Review Driftwood Brewing Co. – Black Stone Porter Review

The Black Stone Porter has been a longstanding staple of the Driftwood Brewery beer lineup. While it has been in the roster for some time the beer has actually changed over the years. While it used to come in at 5.1% the ABV now sits at a more formidable 6.0%. When you pour the beer fro m it’s beautifully labeled bomber bottle it appears as a deep, black colour and is topped with two fingers of dark and heavily lacing head. An aroma of rich chocolate and coffee comes through with a toasty malt base in a deep and delicious manner. The aroma is bigger than your typical Porter may exude. On the tongue this beer has a big body and a very creamy texture to it. The coffee and chocolate notes take charge and with that creaminess give an almost mocha like sensation. The Black Stone Porter used to be good and now it is great! It is on the heavy end of the spectrum but is also one of the top Porters available in BC!

Alcohol – 6.0%
Size – 650ml

    […] While best known for the Fat Tug IPA, Driftwood Brewery has a strong roster of beers that rival BC’s best. It isn’t all about hops either and with a score of 4.60, the Black Stone Porter is the #6 top beer in our list. This big-bodied porter has delicious notes of coffee and chocolate balanced with a smooth and bitter finish. Hoppier than many porters this beer balances tradition with the unquenchable BC thirst for hops. Read the Black Stone Porter Review […]
