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.

A very good tasting beer. Very dark yet not a noticable taste of alcohol. Not too much aftertaste, but plenty of flavor.

Pours a deep pitch black with a 1 finger high country eggshell colored head. The smell is that of dark malts, chocolate, brown sugar, and a hint of hickory smoke. The taste is heavy on the malts, light on the smoke...pretty much light on everything that isn’t chocolatey or malty...there’s really no smokey quality that I can taste. Finish isn’t overwhelming...maybe a bit underwhelming...but it does pair well with the barbequed chicken in front of me.

Slightly smokey aroma, as you would expect. Deep brown appearance, with a lacy tan head. Flavor of chocolates and hints of smoke. Smoke seems less prevelant than when I had this in the past. Very good flavor. Malty and smooth with just a slightly smokey aftertaste. One of my favorite porters.

A sweet aroma of malt and smoke. Appearance is black with a good tan head. Taste is smoky, chocolate and sweet with a pleasant sweet aftertaste. Palate is moderately thick and coating with noticeable carbination. Overall an excellent porter.

22 oz. into pint. Pours a deep, dark brown with a light, tanish head. Smells of chocolate and malts. Taste is at first sweet with a hint of caramel, and finishes with a bit of smoked flavor. Very rich, smooth mouthfeel from start to finish. Will drink again!

marvinpontiac (117) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Pours like motor oil with a heavy tan head. Aroma consists of chocolate, coffee, and smoked nuts. The smoke is subtle enough to make this one of the best porters around.

This porter has a bitter burnt aroma with a smoked malt flavor, accompanied by small bursts of hops. The color is dark brownish black and has excellent lacing.

Kuzo (116) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Pours a dark brown with reddish hues. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells like roasted malts and smoked wood. Taste is a solid porter base with quite a bit of smoke. Some sweet malts and dark roasted coffee with hints of chocolate. A pleasant hop bitterness on the finish. Light/medium bodied with good carbonation. Much lighter than I expected. Overall this was an enjoyable porter. This would have been a great beer to enjoy with a nice cigar.

leninthedesert (116) - Nevada, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Very interesting beer. A lot of malty character - coffee and chocolate. The smokiness is so subtle that it almost tastes like a rich porter bring drunk by a campfire. Finishes bittery-smooth...and very warm.
