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.

Bomber. Pours black, not opaque, but black. Minimal brown head. Aroma is intensely coffee, smoke, wheat?, apple. Taste is upfront with cocoa and caramel. Lots of coffee and smoke. Roasted malts do not overwhelm as description atests. Excellent bitter quality bites at back and lingers forever. Bitterness reminds of ashes and mocha coffee. Most porters are too watery for me. Stone Smoked Porter does not have this problem, although the palate is light. My favorite porter to date.

Pours a nice dark ruby, with a thick, light tan head that stays. Aroma of malt, floral hops, very gentle smoke. Taste is bitter over sweet, drawing out the malt. Getting dark chocolate, bit of coffee. Gentle bitter finish. Nice porter, for sure.

22oz bottle. Pours almost black with a medium, slightly tan head. Taste upfront is dry with just hints of dark cocoa and espresso. Then the smoke hits. Definitely the most pronounced taste but not overpowering. Good beer but not exceptional.

This beer has a lot of character for a porter. Cofee, chocholate, malt, and hops are all present in a nice combination. Can’t wait to try their RIS.

22 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan long-lasting head. Aroma of dark chocolate, fruit, coffee, and slight smoke. Taste of malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel, cream, and a hint of smoke. Creamy body with a slight kick. Aftertaste of coffee and chocolate. A very nice porter.

Has a slighty smokey coffee aroma. Nice dark appearance. Good smokey chocolate taste, a little bittersweet.

Growler fill at CBX. Pours a dark black with lots of tan head. Nothing overwhelming about the aroma, but a bit of sweet and coffee. Great lacing down the glass as it is being devoured. The boilerplate description of this beer serves it well so I don’t have much to add. Some sweet (chocolate) and coffee taste with a subtle hint of smokiness. Nothing overwhelms the other and they are very well balanced into a delicious drink.

Bold look, sophisticated taste-- this beer understands the dance of malt and bitter in a profound way. The smoke blows a kiss dry chocolate and clean coffee character of this beer. First rate.

1 pint 6 oz bottle. Poured a dark, rich brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma was very rich with hops and smokiness. The taste was incredible, a lot more than I expected, with the smokiness of the malt mixed with chocolate and rich coffee flavors. It was very complex yet it balanced out so well and finished lingering on the tongue. Great sipping beer, loved it.
