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.

This very dark porter is quite good. Hops are pronounced but not overwhelming. The malt flavor captures a subtle hint of the peat smoke and is rich in flavor. Medium to full in body. An excellent porter.

Nice dark brownish-black color with a cream colored head that held down to the bottom. I think the smoky flavor is the highlight of this beer and its most distinguishing quality - not overpowering though. Tastes and smells of bacon. Semi-creamy mouthfeel that is well balanced between the chocolate malt and hops. Very good brew.

22 oz bottle. Pours a nearly black ruby color with 1 cm off-white/tan head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and caramel, very slight aroma of smoke. Initial flavor is a little sweet and smoky at the same time. Aftertaste is lasting and dominated by smoke and bitter from coffee or chocolate. Medium bodied, light carbonation, light lacing, and only a hint of alcohol detected. Very drinkable, as both a good porter and smoky beer.

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

Pours a deep dark reddish brown, will show some color if held to the light. Thick tan head fades out to swirls of thin foam. Nose is smokey and malty. Flavor is rich and smokey with smooth malty sweetness, some subtle chocolate like bitterness in the finish. Damn good!

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2006
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 don’t 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.
