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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Tap (5/03/04): While very good, nothing better than your average porter. Aroma: smoked porter, sweet syrup. Flavor: sweeter than average porter, coal, coffee. Finish: almost meaty, classic porter. Very good, yet nothing unique. Draught (12/24/04) in buffalo: Deep, dark brown with a thick, creamy tan head. Aroma is quite roasty, lots of roasted malt, no smoke. Rating stays the same as previous.

Black color with a medium beige head. Chocolate, roasted malt, and dark fruit aroma. Nice roasted coffee, smoked wood, malt, dark fruit and floral hops flavors. Slightly dry, bitter hops finish.

Very dark reddish-brown, big light tan head, very mild chocolate nose. Roasty, chocolate, hint of coffee, just a little smoke. Some finishing bitterness.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2004
Lovely sweet, caramelly nose. Strong flavour of burnt rubber, lots of bitterness, sweet caramel and some roast. Sweetish finish, quite bitter, with an astringent hoppiness and burnt character. This would be a good beer if it wasn’t for the feeling I was drinking liquified tyres! (Bottle from Alex Hall, NYC)

The smoked malt is the predominant flavor of this beer, although the normal coffee and chocolate flavors of a good porter come out as well. Amongst the 10 best Porters in the world!

Whoot! Great beer to choose to celebrate the US win over Mexico. Smells a bit of malt but I was suprised to find that hops dominate the nose. Full body feel with what I feel is a perfect balance of malt and hops. Great beer!

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 28, 2004
On tap. Very dark brown color with small tan head and good lacing. Aroma of malty chocolate and toffee. Taste has a nice dry coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate. The smoke is fairly minor, which is great because I really dislike rauchbiers. The smoke actually adds to the flavor for me! Very smooth and drinkable. By FAR the best smoked beer I have had so far.

phiconners (149) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Dark brown in appearance. Smoke flavor was apparent but not overwhelming by any means. A solid porter.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2004
Dark brown with a moderate tan head. Mild smoothing type aroma. Nose of chocolate malt, licorice, brown sugar, and peat. Light ond fluffy feel. Dangerously drinkable. Light sweet start with a with a licorice and mocha middle. Finish is a touch acidic. Smoke comes very late in the finish. The more I drink this, the more I like it. A great starter into smoked brews for someone who is leery, plus a great beer in general.

Tycho (13) - USA - APR 22, 2004
UPDATED: APR 23, 2004 This is a dark porter which is ideally smoked. As with most Stones, it's strong and flavorful. Masterful balance of the hops. I seek this beer out!
