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.

It poured smooth and dark with a grand volume of light brown head. The head subsided and left a half inch nestled on the top of this rich, dark beer. The aroma entwined smoked malts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Flavors of coffee and malt are abundant. The smoke taste is subtle but noticeable. Chocolate comes on as an aftertaste. Very nice.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Pours dense and dark with a thin cream colored head, aroma is rich with mocha and malts. The flavor is full of roasted chocolate and coffee, semi sweet but mostly dry and smokey, strong finish, a most splendid porter, rock on.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Pours black with a persistent light brown head. Aroma is first of roast malt, followed by smoke which comes to dominate the aroma, though it is not overwhelming. The taste is malty, with roasted notes, and then the smoke injects itself. The smoke is the dominant flavor, though it is not as strong as some other examples. Very well balanced for a Stone beer :-)

Terminus (3214) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 30, 2003
22 oz bomber-again, another under-rated brew! in the words of Hopscotch, "this beer rocks!" deep brown appearance-little red around the rim of the glass. little head, but what head was there was off-white. nice small sized bubbles-Awesome! Aroma was pretty stanrdard, but nice(chocolate, roasted, sweet, some citrus?(i detected citrus as it warmed up). complex flavor-chocolate, roasted-as it warmed, the smoke flavor comes. Slight sourness way late in the finish. Why the low ratings?

A deep dark brew with a slight hint of red around the edges. Light malt and faint smoked aromas. Flavor is lightly malty balanced by hops with light touch of smokiness. Nicely done with hints of roasted malts.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Wow, this is probably my favorite smoked porter to date. Pours a perfect dark, dark brown color. Wonderful roasted coffee and chocolate aromas. Also detect some spice aromas. Flavor is smokey, sweet and bitter in great harmony. An excellent representation of the style.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Poured dark brown, not opaque with a slight reddish hue to it and a nice off white head that left beautiful lacing. Aroma of hops and roasted malt. Smoked taste, followed by coffee, hops, and roasted malt. I wish I rated this earlier.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Mild dark coffee aroma. Very dark and nicely rich. Bitter chocolate flavor with a crisp finish. The "smoke" comes from the roasted malt, I guess. But it tastes nice, nevertheless. One of the better porters in my opinion.
