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.

This is one of my all time favorite porters. It is hard to find, but worth the price. I love the smoked malt flavor...not as pronounced as a rauchbier, but present nonetheless. This beer is so thick and malty that it reminds me of a stout. Great with a cigar and chocolate.

Pours a deep dark brown, short lived tan head. Roasted malt aroma, some bitter chocolate. Flavor is fairly dry, notes of cocoa, roasted malt, and some underlying smoke. Medium to full body, gives a bit of a warming feeling for only 5.9%. Very nice porter.

Draught, at The Ginger Man, Manhattan.
Dark juicy brown body with a thin tan head. Rich toasted malt aroma. Viscous, rich stout-like texture. Really silky and full flavoured. The colour is so intense it is staining the glass. Alcohol is noticeable on the mind but I missed in smoked notes. Cracking beer though.

Pours a beautiful ebony color, inpenerable by light. Nice finger size tan head, respectable lace for the remainder of the glass. Smells of chocolate, coffee, fire malt and smoke. Taste is full, with the coffee and roasted malt up front, thinning to a nice solid medium hop finish that has a slight smokey tingle towards the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is a strong medium. Nice bold, pungent porter with relentless charcoal and wood undertones. This porter is bold but smooth. Firey!

Nose: roasted chocolate malts, hint of hops, slightly acidic. Pours thick, liquid is black opaque with a column of tiny bubbles streaming up along the curved side of my sniffer. Head is large, tan and lasting, strong lacing. Flavor: front is sweet chocolate malts, body very smoky, chocolate malts, some hops in the background, finish is smoky and moderately bitter. Palate is thinner than I was expecting but not watery by any means. Overall, excellent, by far the most out standing porter I've experienced. Some raters said this wasn't very "smoky", well their taste buds must be broken, lots of smoke flavor here.

Dark brown, with a little tan head. Aroma is sweet, a bit metallic, with some roasty malts. Slight chocolate malt flavor, and not nearly smokey enough for my taste. Highly effervescent, with a thin mouthfeel, this was an underwhelming offering by Stone standards.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 This is a darn good smoked beer. Very dark and distinct porter taste with ust a hint of smokiness. Didn’t overpour the beer at all.

Extremely rich, and delicious. Not very smoky but one of my favorite porters.

Taste is also very smooth smoked roasted malts and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall the best smoked beer I have ever had.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 Pours dark ruby red. Thin, light tan head. Nice aftertaste that lingers a bit. Pretty good.
