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.

Drought. Brown with reddish tint, beige spongy head, caramel aroma, low carbonation, smoked coffee taste, long finish with coffee aftertaste. Very good and balanced porter.

A bit of smoke, but not too much. Lots of chocolate and coffee, but there is a mild, smooth texture and light smoky acidity.

Draft. Black with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of smoke. Medium body, roasted malt, chocolate and a slight smokiness with a bitter finish. Just the right about of smoke.

Malaclemys (387) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft pours dark brown with red hues and a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruit, and slight alcohol with no noticeable smoke on the nose. Taste is smokey, caramel, bitter hops, light fruit. Slightly bitter finish with a medium body. Finally a smoked beer I enjoyed!

Solid, as most things are from Stone. Dark pour. Thick body. Beautiful balance of dark fruits, coffee and charred malt. Smokiness comes through subtle woodchip flavors; no liquid smoke taste here!

EyeAmBaldman (296) - Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Has a sweet aroma. Taste is smoky with a bitter coffee twang. Has a nice chocolate kick at first but the after taste is like ash. Had high hopes for this but it was still good...just not great.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 15.01.2014, 0,65l bottle (bbd. 02.04.2012) sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, dark malts, caramel, licorice, lactose, chocolate, dark sugar, butterscotch. Taste is slightly dry and oxidized, dark malts, caramel, coffee, butterscotch, hay, chocolate, cardboard. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, has probably faded a lot.

lukedarock (179) - Howell, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2014
A nice Smokey flavour and aroma nothing overpowering, great looking head and dark color, kinda leaves me thinking what else could be involved to help the character overall but nonetheless decent mix up beer

ej (771) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Moderate smokey aroma with a good malty backbone and roasty character. Taste is smoke and roast flanked by caramel and malts. Well balanced with a light bitter touch.

Bule (834) - California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at Pear. Pours a dark reddy brown color with a bit of head. Smokey roasted malt flavors. The smokiness balances well and doesn't overpower it.
