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.

One of the best smoked porters I have ever had. Balance between the smoke, roast, toast, cocoa, hops and sweetness has got to be tough, but Stone has done it!

On tap at Stone brewery Dark brown pour with a fast disappearing head. Hints of chocolate toffee and coffee. Tastes closely follows nose but includes a touch of smoke. Not too noticeable to me but overall a nice mellow porter.

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.

Pours a lovely head. Smokey chocolate aroma. Perfect amount of smokiness (I hate beers that taste like bacon). One of their best offerings!

A bomber at home. Toasty, oaky aroma. Beautiful dark mocha color, caramel head, wispy lacing. Taste is light porter goodness. Carb level just right. Nutty aftertaste. Enjoyed.

"i was a little let down, more because expectations were high, not because the beer was bad. good aroma, faint smoke smell, with a nice dark roasted malty aroma. deep brown, almost black color, some head, some lacing. the body was a little lacking, not what i expected for in a porter. felt a little light, not full bodied as a "light stout" usually does. smoke flavor was absolutely perfect, just enough without smacking you. in fact, the smoke played second fiddle. hops run pretty high for a porter, a good level of bitterness. "chocolate, coffee" or roasted flavors inherent with porters are a little subdued. All-in-all, good tasting brew, enjoyable and very drinkable. great amount of smoke, but not the flavor profile i’d expect for a porter"
