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.

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. Canít 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 donít 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.

Excellent brew! From the pour to the last drop, this brew dazzled me. Pours black, with a firm, brown/tan head. The body is beautifully complex and this beer will show you what porters SHOULD taste like! Great beer.

What more can I say, I have not had one beer from Stone that I have not liked and this being a porter with some smokiness to it.. makes it one great beer.
