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.

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.

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.

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.

I guess I'm just not a fan of smoked beers. Nice, thick porter. I do like the coffee taste, I just can't get past the smoke. Not my thing.

Very, very dark brown, with a dark tan head. If served very cold it is a good idea to let this sit for 5-10 minutes before drinking or the beer will have little flavor. If tasted at the right temperature, hints of coffe and chocolate are present. This is a great porter, and another good beer from Stone!

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.
