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.

csaso (1896) - Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Tap - fair sized foamy head, almost black color, fair sized smoked malt aroma and flavor, not too overpowering though, should go good with the BBQ I just ordered ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PotjeBier (2278) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
Tap @ Beer Temple, sample size. Very dark color, but not quite black/opaque. Frothy, light beige head. Aroma’s: light smoke, light roasted, very mild really. Retronasal there’s a bit more to it: smokey, roasted malts. Flavor is roasted, hardly sweet. Light bodied. Finishes with light tar, moderate bitter.

TheJester (2303) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
650 mL bottle. Decent looking beer, with a sticky tan head. A little smoke in the nose, but the aroma is fairly mild. It’s subtle in the flavour as well, appearing at the start and lingering in the finish. In between, it’s more typical porter flavours, although it’s not as roasty as some. It is, however, more bitter in the finish than most. Not sure what to think of that. It feels like a hoppy bitterness, rather than from roasted malt.

Cervesa on destaquen els tocs torrats de xocolata i de cafč perň amb un toc fumat. Cerveza dónde destacan los toques tostados de chocolate y de café pero con un toque ahumado.

mariuspoenari (433) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2016
Dark brown pour with a fine tan head. Smells like dark cherries, roasted grains, a bit of whiskey, peat, smoke. The taste is bitter, with notes of peat, smoke, dark cherries and dark chocolate. Silky smooth texture with medium body and a bitter and smoky aftertaste.
LE: when the beer gets warmer, one can identify other notes: funky sour notes in the nose, together with caramel, and the taste also contains notes of caramel and a bit of vanilla. Pretty complex beer.

hauxe (180) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2016
Rated from old notes. A California porter with a rich smokey taste. This is not a pronounced smokiness like Schlenkerla, but much more subdued. Chocolate undertones. Aftertaste reminds more of a milk stout than a porter. Very good.

Worsenma (67) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2015
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 (312) - 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.
