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.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Bottle, 22oz. Pours a very dark brown, with a rather small beige to tan head. Chocolate, a little smoked note, cocoa and coffee in the aroma. The flavor has chocolate, roasted malt, some smoke, and a nice, hoppy bitterness. Full body. Long, roasted finish with chocolate, nice fruityness and a pleasant bitterness. A nice smoked porter, could wish for more smoked though. 6-4-7-4-14-3.5. 071228

Bottle, 22oz, at Cardinal. A clear, dark brown beer with a beige head. Roasted nose with chocolate and some smoke. Would have liked more smoke though. There’s only notes of smoke in the flavor too, chocolate and coffee, roasted malts that is, dominating, and a fine bitterness showing up in the back. The bitterness finishes off the beer in a nice way too. Full-bodied. A fine beer that probably would benefit from more smoke, but that’s just me maybe. 090728

Chocolatey, dry, with good complexity and balance, but only a touch of smoke.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a thick tan head. I typically do not care much for smoked beers, but this one had great character and flavor.

Damn this is a good beer! Coffee and chocolate aroma is very appealing. The taste is a combination of both those flavors, together with a hint of smokiness and medium bitterness. The result is something sublime. Relatively small head atop a black body. Incidentally, I would classify this beer as a robust porter, as the smokiness is not a major player in the flavor.

Bottle. [thank you sk8viking].
2006 ’vintage’.
Pours blackish with a clear red-ness around the edges. A small creamy dark beige head settles nicely on top, before quickly becoming a thin film. Aroma is quite sweet, with a clear smoky edge. There are roasted caramel, a little coffee, some distant cherries as well. Quite high carbonation, making the beer relatively fresh. Flavour is great! There is some mild roasted tones, a good deal of chocolate, and only after a little while, the smokyness hits me - slow-burning. A nice well-rounded bitterness rounds it up nicely. A really great brew!
