3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells delicious, chocolate, rich malt and liquorice. Pours dark brown with a tan head, looks of low carbonation,
Big bitter flavour up front, followed by dark berries, burnt malt, slightly smoky, a little bit of grapefruit.
Heavy body and early bitterness, medium carbonation, dry finish.
A unique beer which is worth trying and good enough for continual purchase. The smoke isn't to over powering and best for those who like hops. Not sweet and more refreshing than you would expect a porter to be.

Dark chocolate, grape/raisin, a touch of coffee, nuts, and soft pine on the nose. Taste was sweet up front - almost like light orange meets coffee and caramel. Shifts into mix of caramel, dark chocolate, and smoke, then fades to earthy hop, grapefruit, pine, and burnt wood. A different flavor stands out with each sip.
Palate was medium-thick bodied with nice, crisp carbonation. Smooth, lightly viscous, and drying. I wish all Porters felt like this one.
Stone is my favorite brewery for a reason. All four categories are brilliantly crafted and mix together to create one hell of a Porter here. Each sip shifts focus to somewhere else. The back of the bottle hits the nail on the head by saying, "Stone Smoked Porter is mysterious, smoky, and verging on utterly decadent".

1pt 6fl.oz ($4.99) First time trying anything from Stone. pretty good, like the flavor a lot. It really doesn’t taste like anything else and is a great match with BBQ and grilled meats. I liked it and will buy again

Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. There’s no point adding a description. It’s all been done. But what I will say is, I’m drinking this with a smoked bacon sandwich, and the bacon is from Kempka’s butchers in Sheffield. It is the best bacon you’ll eat. And the beer’s pretty good too...

It’s very smoked. If you like eating smoked salmon, next to a smokey bonfire, whilst drinking porter, this is for you. I love it.

Dark brown, much lacing.
Medium body, long palate, lingering.
Very nice bittersweet balance.
Light roast flavor.

Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is malt, coffee, chocolate, smokiness and roastiness. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a roasty and slightly smoky finish. Pretty good.
