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.

Keg at the Rutland Arms; coca cola brown pour with a creamy tan head, aroma has a hint of smoke, taste has chocolate, peat, maybe some leather, not a massive amount of smoke but just enough for my likings.

bastarda (116) - Freiburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014
on tap@Hopfenreich, Berlin. faint aroma of smoke, stronger aromas of coffee, malt-coffee, a faint touch of toffee. well-balanced, very good drinkability, tastes only faintly of smoke, this being my first Stone I had expected a bit more concerning complexity of flavours, hm...

Eructoblaster (3117) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle - 650ml. Pours a very dark brown body with a good beige foamy head. Nice, well balanced, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, coffeeish, roasted cereals, and some oaky hints. Its perfectly balanced malty/hoppy taste carries the same roasty, chocolate, and woody notes as the aroma. In addition some subtle anise hints are noticeable. Ends with a long bitter/roasty finish. Very well done.

Martin243 (800) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
1pt 6fl oz bottle served in a chalice. Dark, dark ruby with a thin beige head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with similar flavours, and some vanilla sweetness. Subtle rather than aggressive, the smokiness is quite subdued, the palate rich and smooth, the overall effect a seductive well balanced beer.

Smokey initial flavor with chocolate aftertaste, dry bite sort of pale. Gets better when warm and through most of the bottle

stevoj (2336) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with velvety, creamy beige head. Soft burnt wood aroma, some coffee, some peat. taste has some of the smoke flavor, some chocolate, lots of the dark roast grains. Still plenty bitter, but with a nice fireside feel.
