A rich, dark and delicious porter with chocolate and coffee overtones accented by a subtle smokiness from just the right amount of peat smoked malt. Unlike a rauchbier, the "smoke" in Stone Smoked Porter is an ELEMENT of the character rather than being THE character. -- Greg Koch, Stone Brewing Co.

ej (782) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Moderate smokey aroma with a good malty backbone and roasty character. Taste is smoke and roast flanked by caramel and malts. Well balanced with a light bitter touch.

Bule (859) - California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at Pear. Pours a dark reddy brown color with a bit of head. Smokey roasted malt flavors. The smokiness balances well and doesn't overpower it.

ThreeCats (605) - ISRAEL - JAN 11, 2014
Black with ruby highlights and a decent off-white head. Aroma of roast and coffee, primarily, as oppose to smoke, which comes out more as a "woodiness" than anything. Taste has a much more pronounced smoky feeling, along with roast, ash, coffee, and chocolate. Roast increases on palate, too. Iím not a big fan of "smoked" beers, but this is quite nice.

From the tap out of my growler. Pours a near pitch black with a tan head. Smell of sweet chocolate and subtle coffee notes. Taste is very sweet and robust from the chocolate and smokiness. Great malt body that also gives it itís sweet body. Good beer.

thebos (35) - Eatonton, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Beautiful deep brown/red in color. Has a light head is tan, dissipates quickly leaving only small ring. Smokey, slightly bitter aroma. Very robust smokey taste. The dark chocolate/coffee malt is initial taste followed by a wonderfully balanced bitter, hoppy finish. Excellent porter.

Alpha10 (359) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
2014/01/01 - Pours a clear, dark mahogany colour with a medium, creamy, khaki head that quickly reduces to a lasting surface film. Aroma is chocolate, smoke, molasses and dark fruits. Taste is sweet chocolate malts and dark fruits up front, with a roasted nuts and coffee base and smooth, smokey aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with smooth carbonation and a bitter, drying finish. A well executed porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A rich, dark brew. I've had better porters but that smoky aftertaste is admirable and should be tasted at least once ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

paintedmaple (445) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2013
On tap at Fenton Fire Hall...awesome silky smooth black liquid with flavors of dark roast coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit all dancing about, but none taking the lead. Only problem was that there was little to no smoke which was disappointing.
