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.

Bomber: honestly this is my first smoked beer,(and I didn't inhale). I'm not crazy about the flavor but I appreciate the beer for the expertise in which it is crafted. Stone has my utmost respect. I will come back and re-rate as smoky beers are new to me.

Had this on tap at DBA in NYC and was knocked out. I usually do not like any beer with the word "smoked" in the name, but ordered it cause it was the only Stone brew offered that day & it was simply amazing. Tasty as hell - without being "too" anything. Subtle waves of flavor!

Smoky, chocolaty aroma. Pours a deep dark brown with a brown, creamy head. Tastes of ash, campfire, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. The usual Stone hop bite comes in mildly at the end.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Very dark color, with a lasting tan head. Intense roasted aroma. Not as smokey as you would think when a beer is called smoked porter, but it has a great roasted flavor. Good overall balance.

hershiser2 (1228) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Paid $3.79 for a 650ml bottle. DARK brown, nearly black, with a large, fluffy brown head. Not overly smoky in the nose, but it's got hints. There's also some sweet caramel in there. Not overly smoked in the flavor either... it does have a faint smokey flavor underneath the bitter cold coffee taste. It's nice. A very solid and well-rounded beer. I wish it was a bit smokier, because smokey beers are fun. But I'll pick this up again.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Aroma is malty, fruity, and slightly chocolatey. Pours almost black, good lacing form the beige head. Flavor is malty, with aspect of chocolate milk, spicey hops, and a faint hint of smoke in the finish. Quite full-bodied and creamy. A very nice chocolatey porter. I don't think this should be classified as a smoked beer b/c the smoke make such a minor flavor contribution.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2004
The color is deep brown almost black with a slight beige head. The taste is a nice balance with malty flavors and hoppy notes. It has sligth coffee or chocolate notes too.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2004
This filled the glass with a rich black brew and a substantial creamy tan head. It comes on more like a Stout than a Porter to me and the flavor profile is dominated by the sharpness contributed by roasted/peated barley. This brew has some aspects of a Stout rather than a Porter, and if you are a Stout lover who doesn't care for Porters, then you will probably enjoy this one. A good beer, but I was a little disappointed. I expected something different mostly.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2004
The color is a very dark brown, with a small but tight kahki colored head. Aroma of chocolate, with hints of smoked malts and wood. Malty bitter-sweet cocoa flavors. Smoke flavors come in mid way, noticeable but not overpowering. Touches of roasted barley finish this off rather dry. Very good porter.
