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.

Another example of honesty in labelling by Stone. Mind you, it’d be more accurate to call it "An excellent smoky porter" - because that is exactly what it is.

Everything about this porter is spot in for the style. The smoky flavor doesn't hit you when you first drink it but the aftertaste leaves a burning sensation in your throat. You know you just inhaled smoke.

JorgeLee (1178) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle, picked up somewhere in NYC. Dark almost black colour, ruddy hints, thick head. Very full flavour, actually uses the strong abv. Roasty malts, chocolate and coffee, restrained hint of smoke. Quite a hoppy finish, a bit less of this might have let the malts shine through more. Very drinkable and pleasant.

22 oz bottle poured a murky dark brown. Lots of head. Aroma of roasted coffee. The taste is bold roasted malt and coffee flavors with mild smoke with a long finish. Great!

Simply as good as they get! Not overpowering on the smoke in the aroma, but sausage, charcoal and burn is subtle underneath the smell of hoppy spruceness. Balanced carb on the tongue, smoke is obvious but very gentle. It does not spoil the beer. Incredibly well crafted smoked beer.

From bomber. "Stone", "Smoked", & "Porter"... Pretty descriptive name for this beer... Stone - says this beer will have a good base. Porter - Stone's Porter is that base "Smoked" - this is a smoked porter. The smoke comes through stronger in the taste than in the aroma. Pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The smoke just covers it all. Its prety burnt good.... although kind impossible to have the whole bottle

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 pour with a light beige head. Smokey aroma with coffee and chocolate. Roasted bitter hoppy taste with coffee finish. A nice beer
