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.

Initially sweet and a little ghosty, that fades into a dry slightly smokey finish. This is a superb beer. A little more smoke flavor would be good, but it’s hard to complain.

I guess what I want from a smoked beer is for it to be the outstanding characteristic rather than such a minor player. The smoke really didn’t come out until the finish and not until it was nearly room temperature. I would hope for much more smoke. Quite fruity, coffee in the aroma, some chocolate in the flavour. Pours very pretty.

slightly smokey, not much though. It’s a nice porter, some nice chocolate, and coffee notes on the palate. The finish diminishes quickly. I find the slight smoke to be on the finish, A good one to try if you’re curious about smoked beer, because it really doesn’t overwhelm you.

The one Stone beer I do not like. When they say smoked porter they mean SMOKED. It is too smoky for my tastes. It is a great beer to look at and it can blend well with other beers such as the stone pale but by itself it is very smoky.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2004 8/14/02: Dark. moderately sweet, slightly smokey. A nice porter, not my favorate style, but O.K. for a change of pace. 7/5/04: Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a medium frothy cocoa colored head. Aroma is light coffee and chocolate. Flavor starts slightly sweet with a little coffee and chocolate and a hint of smoke turning lightly bitter and finishing kind of dry with a lingering bitter aftertaste. A very drinkable porter. : )

smoke is just right, setting off the delicious roasted chocolate flavors that dominate this beer.

I did not like this one at all. To thick and too bitter for my taste buds.

pours black with a tan head that disipates somewhat but then hangs on very thinly. this is a very powerful porter and the smoke flavor just adds to that power. an excelent offering from stone

Nice big roasted aroma. Roasted grains come through in body with just a hint of smoked malt. Finishes dry. More of a light stout than a porter, which is fine with me since I am not a big porter fan.
