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.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
Dark brown color; big creamy head. Nice aroma of caramel, wood, light smokey and pepper. The body is weaker than expected, with a strong caramel flavor corrected by light roasted malt and light vanilla, a bit milky; very light smokey touch. The perfect marriage is not between roasted malt and smoked malt…

Cask at Churchkey. Very dark maroon, small beige head. Aroma of toffee, oak, smoke. Flavor has butterscotch and caramel that changes to roasted coffee, bitter smoke finish. Interesting.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2008
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

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Very deep ruby. Lasting beige head. Rather a good choccy porter, peppery hop finish, not huge smoke. Some ashtray. Sweetish toffee and choc. Pretty good.

Bottle at NB - Porter/stout ølsymposium. Black - big brown fluffy head. Light smoked, licorice, roasted, light metalliic, bread. Very mild. Would go nicely to a piece ofryebread with smoked-sausage.

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Growler. The quintessential smoked porter. Pours a dark, black hue with a full, beige head. Deep, rich aroma with strong roasted malt character. The taste follows in a similar vein: burnt malts and strong flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. Some mild hop bitterness. Silky mouthfeel and medium- to big-bodied. Aftertaste lingers for a while with that burnt malt flavor. Really good stuff.

rlgk (14381) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2015 Draught at Steampunk Bar, Göteborg. Black beer with a rich and lasting beige/brownish head. Roasted smoked aroma, tar, licorice, caramel, dark chocolate, some hops. Smoked hop and soot aroma, licorice, caramel, tar, leather notes. Fresh and decently heavy beer with balanced smoke.

brokensail (13654) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Very dark brown, almost black with a finger and a half of off-white head. Smells smokey, of course, with aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and a bit of sweetness. The first sip is sweet, primarily caramel. As it warms up a bit, the slight smokiness comes out, as do the traditional porter flavors such as coffee and chocolate. A nice roasted malt taste is prevalent. I’m generally not that big of a fan of smoked beers, but this one is light enough on the smoke, and it seems to add a bit of sweetness.
