COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

fletchfighters (1236) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2015
650 ml bottle. Dark brown, bordering on black. Nice light tan head. Good strips of lacing. Nose is very soft. Roast, earth, chocolate, earthy, slight smoke, and chalk. Odd. . Taste is very chalky. Like paste or eating chalk. Not very tasty. Little to no smoke. More like over hopped . rough to drink and hard to finish. Previous batches were much better. This was not.

bhaag (7) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2015 does not count
Dark, savoury aromas and flavours, with a bit of stewed fruits poking through. Well balanced smoked malt use it never becomes overbearing.

BlackHaddock (4863) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
26th May 2015: on a four beer flight at the Stone Oceanside outlet. Dark and foreboding brew, burnt coffee esters fill the nose with a smoky trace or two. Taste similar, coffee and smoky. Slightly bitter finish. Decent.

badhack (400) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Black, darker than usual for a porter. Aroma is weak and flavor is like a porter with thin mouthfeel, maybe even dry, and a very strong smoky flavor. This should be had with BBQ. Some chocolate I didnít care for but also cola and a bit of hops to balance but not very bitter. Very malty and a bit of caramel.

Bottle at tasting. Black brown pour, small head. Aroma of roasted malt, cacao and a little caramel. Taste has mild smoke, soft roast, cacao, coffee and caramel malt. No peat actually.

Bahumat (134) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Overhopped, bitter, somewhat rancid. Iím wondering if I got a bad bottle, because I cannot fathom how this beer is enjoying such a high overall rating on Ratebeer. Yuck. Almost a pour-out. Tastes like someone dropped a cigarette butt in a bottle of Big Rock Traditional Ale.
