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.

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.

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) - Boone, 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.

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 (3373) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (9050) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2004
Near black colour, but with a clear ruby shine; thinnish dark-cream head. Smoked nose, like smoked wood, tar-like, but not exceedingly so. Smokey taste, too, woody-smoked, beachwood, smoked haddock. Slightly resiny. Medium-bodied, not light. sweeter, slight liquorice aftertaste; slight burning sensation. very good beer, up to Bastard standards. Not like the German ones, but excellent in its own way.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Pours a very dark black. Huge brown head with nicely rounded malty aromas. Definitley lightly smoked when compared to the original, Alaskan. Delicious. Amazing balance. Creamy with lots of burnt toast flavors. I would have to say that this is Stone's most well-crafted brew. I wouldn't change a thing. A treat from start to finish. Better than the 6th anniversary to.
