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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Deep Brown. Deep, malt driven aroma with a touch of smoked malts and a hint of chocolate, coffee, tar and dark fruits. Silky, sticky, coating and heavy body and feel on palate. An instant 5 on the palate. Big for its size. Notes of chocolate, coffee and wet pavement along with a very small amount of smoke. Tasty.

Had this during Stone Brewing tour/ tasting while visiting North County San Diego--- the peat-smoked flavors make the beer more like a Laphroaig Scotch than your average porter. VERY nice. Even out of a plastic cup.

Ungstrup (32211) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2004
A red-brown beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate, but not much smoke compared to a Bamberg beer. The flavor is dry, slighty sour but also sweet and with light notes of chocolate. The end is quite roasty. I can’t detect the smoke, but it is a nice porter.

Brown clear body with a tan head, nice lace. The aroma is lightly smoked with hints of chocolate. You can taste the malt all the way through your mouth. Smoky, and chocolatey. Very tasty brew, I’ll drink it again.

madsberg (11170) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Clear. Has a light brown head. Light smoked, maltish and chocolatish aroma. Is malty, light spiced and light roasted in the flavour. Not much smoke to be noticed. Is thin bodied but yet smooth. Dies quickly on the palate. Has to draw a few points, because the smoke character imo is too vague.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Where the fuck did they put the smoke in this beer? I couldnt find it for sure... Roasty aroma, some licorice. Almost black body, medium tan head. Roasty flavor, some chocolate, but no fuckin smoke. I want Schlenkerla-smoke in this beer!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Pour is black with medium tan head...smell is coffee and chocolate with definate smokey overtones...taste is instantly sharply bitter and the smoke thing tasted rather like a stale, already been lit 3 weeks ago and sat in an ashtray flavor...chocolate flavor not nearly as pronounced as the bitter coffee flavor...bitter yet warming mouthfeel...

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Nice and dark, nearly opaque...a hint of amber when held up to the light. Thick brown head. Nice sweet aroma that is dominated by coffee and chocolate. Big body, chewy and delicious. Excellent balance of coffee and chocolate plus a nice hoppy bit to balance the sweetness of the malt. The smoke is apparent in the finish but not quite as strong as i thought or hoped for (this being my first smoked beer)...otherwise an excellent beer that i could enjoy everynight this winter.

Dorwart (2485) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Large sticky head. Amazing lacing. Big frothy bubles on top. Low carbonation. Slightly sweet smoked aroma, with a bit of salty soy sauce. Color is a very dark port red. Slight smoked flavor. Just the right amount. Not overpowering. Good malt backbone. Creamy and thick in the mouth. Low alcohol makes this very easy drinking. Finish is creamy and smooth with very little aftertaste for a proter. Stone produces a magnificent brew again!

motelpogo (7706) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 5, 2004
bottled. easily the best stone beer i’ve tried. mild smokiness in the aroma with some cocoa powder and soccerball ham. nice shade of black, quite thick but soft on the tongue. a bit of a surprise that the finish is quite restrained, semi-dry with some faint vanilla sweetness. nice to have a stone beer with some subtlety
