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.

Damn this is a good beer! Coffee and chocolate aroma is very appealing. The taste is a combination of both those flavors, together with a hint of smokiness and medium bitterness. The result is something sublime. Relatively small head atop a black body. Incidentally, I would classify this beer as a robust porter, as the smokiness is not a major player in the flavor.

dark black, slight red hues when put under light. taste slight sweet roasted coffee and a dark black malty bitterness. mellow smoke, slightly cedar tasting. smoke is mellow and comes late to complement the coffee. Reminds me of the Alaskan Smoked Porter as that it left me wanting more smoke. An excellent beer however. Thanks Greg

Nice multi-layered mostly malty aroma. The porter is subltley smoky as advertised. This is a nice porter, however I donít believe it is as complex as say Fullerís. Nice effort from Stone, however. Although that is kinda redundant, as all of Stoneís products are very good.

A little too burnt for me. But still a good one. Nice head, good aroma, and a nice finish.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 This is interesting --eat with barbeque. Very dark brown, with some fat tan resinous foam and translucent edges, this looks like a schwarzbier -- less proteins than a typical English porter. While both the smoke and the aroma are on the medium-light side, the flavors of dark roast are easily appreciable with hints of smoke as complement. The finish is a hoppy tang with a peaty pepper also present. A very enjoyable and interesting beer.

Black, Black in color; Tan head was fluffy and lingered for a short time; Aroma was very typical of a porter- whereís the smoke? Oily in the mouth like a good porter should be. The smoke is very restrained- much less then I have had in any other ísmokedí beers. I actually liked this beer much better then my final rate score, but the numbers hold true- nothing much more then a good porter.

Roasted aroma. Weak roasted flavor, thin body. Long and strong roasted/smokey finish.

Not a bad beer, but not really smoked. Iím sure smoking went into the process of making it, but itís hardly evident in the end product. Itís there on the very finish, but hardly noticable. You can taste it in your belches though. It does have a bit of an ashtray finish.

Pours with a dark brown color and produces a squat, creamy, long-lived,tan-colored head of foam. Dark and somewhat cloudy and virtually opaque in the glass. Unlike a stout, this ale has a fruitier aroma, smelling of dark, ripe plums touched by peat smoke and coffee.
