4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful ebony color, inpenerable by light. Nice finger size tan head, respectable lace for the remainder of the glass. Smells of chocolate, coffee, fire malt and smoke. Taste is full, with the coffee and roasted malt up front, thinning to a nice solid medium hop finish that has a slight smokey tingle towards the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is a strong medium. Nice bold, pungent porter with relentless charcoal and wood undertones. This porter is bold but smooth. Firey!

The Stone Smoked Porter pours almost black with a fluffy light brown head, but embodies a very red hue when you hold it up to a light. The flavors of smoke and roasted malt are more subtle than I would have expected, especially from Stone co. but the beer is more drinkable than I expected too. A pleasant porter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light malt aroma; deep amber appearance; malty with a light smoke taste; lightly fizzy on the palate with a quick finish; overall, a solid porter but not enough smoke or peat to live up to the name

This porter has a bitter burnt aroma with a smoked malt flavor, accompanied by small bursts of hops. The color is dark brownish black and has excellent lacing.

An excellent smoked porter. I sensed so much of a ghosty quality in this beer that it nearly scared my pants off. My pants came off shortly after, but for completely unrelated reasons.
Best smoked porter Ive had thus far.

22 oz bottle. It tastes just like I’m eating a BBQ. Smoke, oak, coffee, chocolate. Very easy to drink, I just with it had a higher ABV. Great for drinking outdoors on a hot day.

Bottle from local shop. Poured very deep brown with foamy yellow head. Very earthy smoke flavor. Slightly sweet malty finish, almost like a cola.

so good, like every stone beer i have had
the beers aroma was mostly coffee and hinted very subtly at chocolate
the taste imo was very complex and amazing, strong coffee flavors with hints of chocolate and caramel which is very nicely ballanced by hoppy bitterness
will definitely drink again
very thick but not syrupy on the palate
