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.

Bomber. Pours near black with reddish brown edges. Nice sized light tan head that lasts and leaves chunks of lacing all the way down the glass. Nose is of chocolate, coffee, hints of vanilla, and smoke in the background. Taste is similar with chocolate and coffee being the most prevalent, caramel malt backbone, with a smokiness that truly compliments it all. Light citrus hops on the finish with roasted malt coming through as well. Medium-light slick mouth feel with carbonation that tingles a bit.

Black with a nice creamy tan head that leaves a nice stickiness on the glass. the smell and taste are of smoke, coffee, chocolate and malt. the smell has some other sweet qualities to it and the taste falls in the order listed above, with a finish that goes back to the coffee flavour for a nice dry finish.

Murky black pour with a tannish caramel head. Chocolately aroma with hints of malt and hops. Smooth mouthfeel with a perfect amount of carbonation artfully releases the chocolate, malt, coffee and caramel flavor. A subtle smoky aftertaste lingers after this one goes down. Not my favorite Stone but yet another solid brew.

Stone’s Smoked Porter is really good. It tastes like coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate.

Bottle at home. Pours a rich dark brown with a thick gorgeous tan head. Smells of smoke, malt, wheat, and chocolate with subtle hints of vanilla and coffee. The flavor is rich and mellow with only slight hints of alcohol. A good drinkable porter with a thick body and rich mouthfeel. I love it.

Very dark pour with a generous head. Just a hint of chocolate brown in colouring. Smokey taste is mixed nicely so as not to be overpowering. It’s a nice dessert beer on the lighter side.

DANEgerous (93) - Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Aroma: Deep rich earth aroma, Notes of soy sauce and autumn leaves. Appearance: Black, deep orange tinges when held to light, tan head. Taste: Heavy, notes of dark coffee and dark coco, the finish has notes of smoke and char and it is only in this where you note why it is smoked porter. Palate: Thick almost oily like cold vodka, moderate carbonation and a lasting finish Overall: I am starting to think stone can do no wrong, I have only had 3 beer by them but they are all fantastic this one would co fantastic with any form of grilled beef or even breakfast meats.

650ml bottle, no freshness date. Almost pitch black with a bubbly and thick mocha-coloured head that leaves a lacy ring around the edges. Lots of chocolate on the nose, caramel, light vanilla. Taste is full of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a slight hoppy bitterness and a charred, smoky and ashy finish. Palate is creamy and smooth but a little light. Medium carbonation. Pretty nice.
