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.

This beer is very dark, perhaps a deep reddish brown. The nose is full of chocolate with a touch of smoke. The palate is rich and creamy with an undertone of smoked malt. The hop presence is dutifully balanced. The only major flaw I find in this beer is that is under smoked for my tastes.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2004 Sugary brown rum in drunken dark chocolate...Berries thrive amiddst the smoke and attain a roasty perfection...No smog in sight, just a beautifully crafted smoked porter with green back bitterness...More carbonated than the Bièropholie Calumet and less prevalent smoke...

Deep brown-black color. Excellent tan head. Very smokey - but a little thin. Could use a little more malt.

Pours a chocolatey brown, with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Bitter, dry, roasted chocolate and woodiness dominates the malty palate, with slight smoked notes joining the proverbial parade of flavor. Still, I prefer edgier takes on the style, and Stone plays it "safe" on their version.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Dark brown in colour. Aroma is smokey, malty, slightly sweet. Flavour is slightly malty, bitter, roasty, some smoke. Finishes malty with medium bitterness.

This is a bit less than I want, but as it warms, things happen. A fantastic porter--I just don't get a lot of smoke. Fine by me, actually. One of the best porters out there.

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a deep black liquid light can nearly penetrate with a fine copper-caramel color that disapates quickly to nothing. Aroma is of molasses, toffee with sweetness. Flavor is a medium to small hop - otherwise nothing. Beer looks great - taste leaves something to be desired. Decent beer - could be better. Maybe this will be my gateway beer to hoppier beers. Don't dream far, though. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.
