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.

Not much of a porter. It's more like a very dark, well-hopped APA. Minimal head and no lacing. Very smokey aroma. The smoked aspect of the flavor is very evident, and is enjoyable. The body is pretty thin, especially for a porter. The hop bitterness in the finish is a bit unenjoyable, which surprised me considering stone seems to be great at creating the perfect hop finish.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2004 A pitch black appearance with a tan head. Aroma is smoked meat and roasted malt. Flavor is bitter and smokey. Yet another great beer from Stone

Unfortunately, I had the misfortune of having to drink this one from a plastic cup, since it was st. patty's day and the bar was afraid of drunks breaking their glass pints, but still a very good and smooth porter!!

Good head and aroma, very chocolatey smelling but the flavour was quite smoked out. Like I was liking charcoal, bit still a pretty good chewy beer with a nice finish.

Draft at the Stone Kickoff at the Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC. Now this is a porter. Nice smoked malt flavor. Wasn't real heavy.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Very nice aroma that is pleasant to the nose. It has a typical very dark brown color with a small head that quickly disappears. I found my self taking 3 or four tastes before I even got a feeling for this Porter. It was a very mild taste that escaped me for a few moments. It had almost no before or after taste. Very smooth and lacking any bitterness. I find myself liking the Porters more and more. This brew is pushing me over the edge in that direction. Can I have some more please?

Smooth roasted malt flavor. Small creamy foam head. Gives hints of smoked meat in the flavor, but is complimented with thin sweet hops flavor. An exelent dark beer that would compliment a nice rich meal greatly.

Aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice withstanding head. Flavor is excellent with malt sweetness, toasted malt, smoked malt, chocolate, and some hop bitterness to back it up. Not overpowering like some other smoke brews. Another fine brew from Stone.

This may sound odd but the first thing that jumped into my mind upon smelling this beer was olives then firewood. During the pour you can see the yeast but as the glass fills it becomes completely black. The flavor is good but I prefer the taste of Youngs Double Chocolate better but this is still great.

Nice dark brownish-black color with a cream colored head that held down to the bottom. I think the smoky flavor is the highlight of this beer and its most distinguishing quality - not overpowering though. Tastes and smells of bacon. Semi-creamy mouthfeel that is well balanced between the chocolate malt and hops. Very good brew.
