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.

Fairly pronounced smokiness in the aroma but the taste is really where the smoked malt comes through. Very smooth, black pour with a quickly dissipating tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsporrer (622) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Deep brown, not quite opaque, with a medium head of tan foam. Medium to thin body. Not much of an aroma. Medium carbonation. Slightly bitter and harsh with just a hint of smoke. Not very smooth, flavorful or refreshing. Not that enjoyable, somewhat disappointing. Could have been a little thick, smoother, with bolder flavors.

cmacklin (803) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
650ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a red hue and a large, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, coffee and a hint of smoke. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruit, coffee, smoke and caramel with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a smooth, creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced. Very nicely done. An excellent porter.

Delicious traditional smoked porter. Subtly smoked,light with big coffee and chocolate notes in the malt. Subtle, rounded fruity hops. Brings back memories of wintertime evening drinking at blind tiger on W10th for some reason.

CacheManyHose (575) - HONG KONG - NOV 23, 2015
Had at Matt's when Theresa was round. Opaque black, beige fluffy head, big fluffy lacing. Smells of dusty (mothball-ish though not in bad way) dry roasted cereal malt. Taste is medium to heavy bitterness, roast/burnt malt, somewhat thin. Body is thin, burnt malt, small carbonation. Not that smoky, dusty nose, taste and palate kind of thin.
