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.

smoke is just right, setting off the delicious roasted chocolate flavors that dominate this beer.

Aroma: Smoke, oak, malt. Appearance: Dark opaque color, medium head fades to thin layer w/ decent lacing. Taste: smokey, coffee malt, chocolate, touch of hoppyness Palate: medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, lightly dry. Overall: This is a really good beer, my favorite porter thus far. I love the smokeyness and balance of this beer. At $3.99 it’s an awesome value!

The most obvious element of this beer is its smoky flavor and aroma, which is right up front and in your face. If your palate can handle the extreme smokiness, then you’re in for a treat. This is the beer exemplifies its style. Delicious.

Pours a nice dark color. There was a rather small head. The smell was of nice roasted malts. The taste is a mixture of mocha and smoke. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

Pours black with an off-white head, almost identical to the picture. Wonderful crisp taste despite being such a dark beer. I can definitely taste hints of chocolate and cafe flavors. Slight burnt taste that complements the subtle overtones. Smooth brew...def. a good job by stone. At only 2.99 for 1.6 pints at trader joe’s, it’s a beer worth trying.

Slightly out of style, picking up roasted barley in the mouth and nose. High bitterness and roasted malt levels comparable to a stout. Aroma is awesome. Slight smokiness in the nose and more in the taste, you have to fill your mouth with it to really enjoy the smokiness. Overall it is a good beer but not living up to its current rating in the 98th percentile. Warm with a cigar and this beer is even better.

It poured smooth and dark with a grand volume of light brown head. The head subsided and left a half inch nestled on the top of this rich, dark beer. The aroma entwined smoked malts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Flavors of coffee and malt are abundant. The smoke taste is subtle but noticeable. Chocolate comes on as an aftertaste. Very nice.

AGED 2 YEARS Brown. Slight amber. Small lacy head. Muted and slightly malty nose with a whisper of roasty smoke. Nice mouth. Creamy with a touch of complex smokiness left. Almost medicinal Woody bark and dark roast finish. Needs chocolate. Very interesting but I think it is better fresh. ---That dog will hunt!

Great dark brown color with a thick tan head and outstanding lace. Aroma of dark malt and chocolate with a very pleasant taste of malt, chocolate and coffee that leaves the palate with a slight hop bitterness. Overall a very pleasant Porter.

This is the only Stone beer I didn't like. I don't like the combination of smoked and bitter.
