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.

maltman53 (432) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bomber pours coffee-black w/a persistent tan head. Faint roast aroma, medium-bodied chocolate/coffee palate, ending with a roasty finish. Overall, a great porter at an even greater price.

Muggus69 (1553) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2014
650mL bottle Enjoy by 11/22/14 Deep, near-opaque, ruby body, holds a small but tight beige head. Moderately intense aroma; roasted malt, charcoal smokiness, some dark chocolate & citrus hop character. Medium bodied, smooth creamy body, moderate carbonation. Roasted character continues on the body - burnt nutty, malty, charcoal, with light charred woody smoke, cocoa & dark chocolate, good measure of grassy, floral, citrus hop. Moderate bitterness, drying on the finish. Pretty good. Not overly smokey, decently made porter.

A nice smoky aroma drifts from the bottle as I pour into this porter glass, and the dark umber colored liquid is covered in seconds with a two finger, soft khaki head. The head is significant and certainly doesnít block the smoke scent coming from the glass. Very smoky, a nutty and an almost hidden toasted coffee bean foundation floods my taste buds, the medium body being a good catalyst for the flavors. The carbonation is nice, although it could be a bit more lively in my opinion, but lasts well throughout the glass. The finish is comfortable, lasting, and something that will be hard to follow; perhaps Iím done reviewing for the evening. Not my favorite Stone, but definitely another score for that brewer.

"Big Porter, rich, full, and robust as Stone claims. The fairly subtle smokiness (especially when compared to Alaskanís SP) adds an uncommon complexity. good stuff!"

EBD 7/17/14. Clear dark amber pour (similar to Coke) with a nice garnet note. Normal head and retention very good lacing. Nice complex nose of chocolate, light roast with toffee/coffee notes, a very subtle hint of dark fruit and a light smoky character that becomes pronounced as it warms. Light medium bodied with an almost smooth texture. Good carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish and in the middle. The flavor profile is quite nice, balanced - with a smoky skew - and complex. It begins with roast, then fades into a light chocolate sweetness. The middle effervesces into a burst of smoke and light hops over a well balanced bitterness. As it flows into the finish, hints of dark fruit emerge. The finish leaves you with a nice smoky aftertaste that lingers over hints of dark chocolate.

Pours a dark black with tan head. Has a coffee, nut, malt, and chocolate aroma. Starts with a coffee and chocolate taste and continues with smoky flavors, malts, and coffee grounds. A very distinct smoky lingering aftertaste.
