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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Bottle. Oily black pour with a thin ring of bubbles. Smells of smoke, malt, and raisin. Front end has alot of fruit-plum, cherry, apple, some citrus zest. Chocolate malts are present but in the background. Fairly sweet. The smoke is way in the background, which is nice. Finish is dry and a little dirty. As it warms, the malts come out and move up front.

Bottled 5-12-04.Nice aroma of roasty malts,choco-coffee and some hops lending a tease of citrus.Great black appearance with ruby highlights.Ireally like the hops in this one with a pleasant lingering bitterness to match all the above noted aromas and that ever so subtle smoke.Great palate,medium body,great bitterness.Will get more of this when I get a chance.Good off white head>good lace>great beer.

Trade from Doclock, thanks. From a bottle. Strong coffee and roasty aromas. Pours dark black with a thin, but creamy head. Strong bitter coffee flavors. Very porterish mouthfeel that belies how thick it looks sitting in the glass.

Pours black with an off-white head, almost identical to the picture. Wonderful crisp taste despite being such a dark beer. I can definitely taste hints of chocolate and cafe flavors. Slight burnt taste that complements the subtle overtones. Smooth brew...def. a good job by stone. At only 2.99 for 1.6 pints at trader joe’s, it’s a beer worth trying.

A very good tasting beer. Very dark yet not a noticable taste of alcohol. Not too much aftertaste, but plenty of flavor.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - AUG 19, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Pours a very standard porter black, transparent towards the edges. Aroma is candy toffee, and malt. Small off-white head. Taste is thick and syrupy on the mouth, with tastes of coffee, choclate, and a very roasted, "campfire" taste to it. An amazing beer, thanks to INDIANA RED for this tasty brew!

mjg74 (2790) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Pours very dark, but I can still see through it a little. Nice sweet roasted malt aroma. A little chocolate as well. Smooth body. Quite a roasty flavor. Some bitter coffee flavor, as well as a bit of chocolate in there. Good quality porter. I wouldn’t know it was smoked if it didn’t say so.

bb (7382) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottle. Roasty and smoked aromas. Blackish beer with a big beige head. Smokey, roasty flavor with a sweet malt backing. Complex flavors but very drinkable. Nice.

I can’t believe I didn’t rate this one! This is a great porter! Dark brown appearance, and a tan foamy head. Aroma is of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is lightly smoked, choclately, and not too sweet, very smooth. I loved this one!
