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.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Very nice aroma (possibely the best part) of soft hints of cinnamon and ginger. These flavors did not appear in the taste at all. When colder the smokey flavor tastes grassy so only drink warm. The main taste is leather and smoke. A nice beer to try, wouldnt drink it every day

Wow. Dark Dark Brown color with roasted coffee aroma.Taste is strong with chocolate and coffee the flavors. Well balanced and extremely smooth and sweet in the mouth.Creamy towards the finish with a smokey bitter taste that lingers long after the last sip. A great sipping porter.

I've been really looking foward to this beer, and I'm a little bit dissapponited. I expected to smoke flavor to be a bit more organized. A good poter nonetheless.

Good Solid Porter. Dark brown with good head. Roasted arouma with coffee hints. Same goes for flavor. Great mouth feel( on the lighter side) All in all a fine example of style, well balanced. Cheers

Dark brown with dark amber hints. Shy smokiness with some chocolate undertones in the aroma. The beer starts with bitter chocolate, smoke passes by and roasted coffee ends the trip.

The head is creamy, and fairly average in size. The appearence is ebony in coloration, and nearly opaque. The flavor is very smokey, like the smell of a pleasant campfire.overall this is a wonderful beer. one for the records.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Very good for the style. Dark brown with a big head. I disagree with the commercial description, the flavor is dominated by the smoke. Aroma is sweet, chocolatety and malty. The flavor is mostly smoke. Bitterness on the finish. Not the porter I was hoping for.

FatherMoss (21) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of smokiness. Nicest aroma I've yet run across in a beer. Beautiful appearance - nice creamy tan head, dark brown color, excellent lacing. Taste is good - the chocolate and coffee really come out, along with the "bite" of the beer. Smooth and a little creamy on the palate. Good finish. A new favorite of mine. Not something I'd guzzle...this is something to be savored.

Aroma very reminiscent of Guiness, though color is lighter. Smokiness really brings out the flavors of smoked meat (pepperoni) and cheese (smoked mozarella). Beer disappears from glass very quickly.
