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.

Appearance is black with a small off white head. No translucency to background light. Aroma is slight smoke beyond a toffee, caramel, and coffee notes with a deep roasted malt. There is a slight yeast scent and sourdough scent. Taste is mildly smoky behind toffee, chocolate and coffee flavors. Also a slight bread or biscuit flavor comes through. Palate is medium but not watery with a slight fizz of carbonation on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In the spirit of a recent forum discussion I’m going to say that this beer was cheap, but tastes expensive. It also tastes cold and it tastes dark. Regrettably what it does not taste like is smokey. I understand that Stone wanted this to be a Porter first and foremost, but I don’t have to like that, I’d rather have smokey.

The malts and hops are both delicate and light. Taste of light body coffee with a touch of a smoked chocolate. This is much milder in taste than in aroma. Would work in harmony with grilled fish. Enjoyed from a snifter.

Perfect smoke porter, great thing is that this porter does not have the mesquite phenolics most smoke brews do. Great smoky roast aroma, nice body but nit stout like, clean clean finish. Great beer.

Easily the meh-est smoked anything I’ve tasted. Very boring aroma, and only slightly smoky. Flavor was barely smoky at all. Hopefully got a poor one, and spent way too much on it : (

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!

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