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.

Pours black with some tan head. A good malt base with chocolate and coffee overtones. Not so much smokiness but I canít help feeling that it would taste a lot better without it. Sorry, Stone.

I was expecting more. The head was long lasting and cream colored, quite thick. The color dark and opaque. The initial flavor was that of the hops, very notable, much like in everything Stone produces, however the malts I felt were completly overshadowed by the hops. I donít really see a reason to go back to this one.

Bottle: Poured black with a tan, foamy head..nice lacing. Aroma rather sharp. Wonderfully bitter. Nice burnt finish. Lingering smoky taste halfway through glass. Great beer, but I think one would be enough.

Black pour produced a superb head –one that laced the pint glass all the way down. A chocolate malt aroma transcends over into the taste, along with coffee, light charcoal, burnt toast and the infamous smoky peat finish that gives you a small kick in the sack. Although thick and chewy, the light carbonation makes for a great session brew.

Smoky, hoppy aroma. Inch-thick brownish white head. Solid black in appearance (as it should). Very rich taste, overwhelms the taste buds. Smoked is correct. Smooth finish.

Beige head and roasty malted aroma. Not so smokey taste with bit of chocolate. Full bodied with oily and creamy texture. Carbonation is rather average. Tiny bitter finish.

NayTron (133) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Pours black with a thin head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malts and some carmel notes. Taste is very smokey with hints of charcoal. Some sweet notes. Mouthfeel is thin in a good way but coats the mouth in the finish with a nice smoked malty sweetness. Smoked is spot on. If you like this style of beer, this a must try.

Bomber poured into a pint glass had a solid tan head that dissipated slowly leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malt, as is the flavor. There is a little bit of smokiness in both, but I can definitely understand the complaint that for a "smoked" porter, the smokiness is not very pronounced. Itís plenty for me, though. The color is basically coke; itís pretty much black, but if you hold it up to a light you can kinda-sorta see that itís brown. Sort of. The more I sit here and drink, the more the sweetnees and the smokiness are coming out. Thereís also a nice, lingering bitterness on the backend (the beerís, not mine). I tend to like my pale aleís on the dry side and my porters and stouts a little sweeter. This is definitely on the dry side for me. But, with that said, itís definitely a beer worth repeating.
