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.

Poured into a snifter. Almost black with a good inch and half of tan head that held strong. Smells of smoke (obviously) and a lot of rich malt, ripe dark fruit and chocolate. The smoke compliments here, not dominating. It tastes like a porter with an undercurrent of smoke. It is there from beginning to end but never the main show. There is good malt, woody taste and a nice bitter kick in the middle. Smooth and creamy texture. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied. A little less carbonation would bump this up in my book. Overall I really enjoyed this beer. I liked the low profile of the smoke; quite different from most other smoked beers. You cannot go wrong here.

Bahumat (132) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Overhopped, bitter, somewhat rancid. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle, because I cannot fathom how this beer is enjoying such a high overall rating on Ratebeer. Yuck. Almost a pour-out. Tastes like someone dropped a cigarette butt in a bottle of Big Rock Traditional Ale.

PhilJackson80 (489) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2015
22 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/4/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. This had a pretty mild smoked element to it & was pretty well balanced with the chocolate & Mike bitterness. Pretty nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, finally getting a chance at this. We get most of the flavored varieties here, but never the plain?! Anyway, deep brown beer, decent almond colored head, good lacing. Aroma dried plum, coffe, smoke, toasted barley. Taste is toasted barley, faint fruit, coffee. Palate a bit light, carbonation a bit sharp, for style. I like the hops at the finish, this is almost dry.

Incredible deal and wonderful aroma and taste of coffee and chocolate. Good and quite as heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Exquisite beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours a very dark brown with a tanned head. Sweet malt aroma with notes of smoke. Smokey taste.
