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.

Very nice beer. Dark and rich, looks and tastes like a Murphy’s with a hint of smokiness and a few other flavors. Not bitter at all.

22oz bomber - Deep garnet pour with small light tan head. Nice smokey aroma, roasted malt. Roasty, smokey flavor...nicely balanced. Thin mouthfeel, consistant with some porters. I really like the smokiness. Light hop presence to finish, smoke and caramel flavors linger. One of my favorites.

Couldn’t smell a whole lot in the aroma. Maybe it’s too cold. The taste is definitely "Smoked." Its creamy and smooth with a constantly changing after taste. I really like this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2004 Great brew. Pours a lovely black hue witha nice toasty brown head. Smells like a chocolate bar. Really it smelled so creamy and smooth I couldn’t believe it. Tastes just as chocolatey. Hops prevent the beer from flattening out on the palate. They keep things perked up. Nice balance between the malt and hops. Both are totally in your face. The smoke is an excellent part of this brew. Not too heavy not non existant. Smooth and drinkable. I could drink 400 of these. grat

Great pour with a wicked head. The aroma rolling off this beer were wonderful...I definately noticed the smoked part, maybe I was looking for it too much. Rich chocolate malt, creamy and smooth. Very nice finish. Stone continues to amaze.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Nice and foamy head that seems to boil like a mud-pot; tons of beautiful lacing; hints of licorice, and a light fruity, chocolate-dough aroma (?!); nice rich, thick, malty, bitter-sweet, chocolatly, roasty, creamy, and *very* mild smokey flavor: maybe needs more smoke? Outstanding.
