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.

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.

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.

Very nice porter. Dark Borwn in color with a nice beige head. Roasty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Nice roasty start. Slight Smokiness start to kick in, in the middle. Nice slight bitter finish. Very good.

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2003
24 oz. bottle Velvety soft, super dark, subtle smokiness is just enough to be distinctive, not nearly enough to be overpowering. Sweet, woodsmoke aroma with a undertone of hops. Nicely balanced all the way from malty start to lightly bitter finish, fading evenly on the tongue. Of course it's good! It's a Stone :>

darbish (115) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2009
smells like a campfire or burning cedar mixed with a mild sweet odor. is a very dark, somewhat translucent brown with beige head. tastes fairly sweet and has a very intense smoky flavor, imagine the comment i made about a campfire, then imagine eating that campfire. feels very thin in my mouth though, which is a bit of a disappointment i like my porters and stouts to have a little thicker viscosity. pretty good nonetheless.

thekmoonlegend (115) - Lynn, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2009
I really enjoyed this beer. Very dark color, thick head that lingers as it should. Aroma of coffee, a hint of chocolate, lots of malts. A smoky flavor that was not too overpowering. Very good.

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Pours a dark brown with a red hue, and an off-white/ tan head. The aroma is sweet and roasted with hints of dark fruit and smoke. Taste is great, a full flavored porter with a good malt bill and balance of hops. There is a slight tobacco finish with the smoke. A great porter.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Keg at the White Horse’s American Beer Festival 2009. A smoked toffee aroma but the flavours are completely overpowered by the chocolate. It was really like drinking a Yoo Hoo.

mcnally (114) - Burbank, California, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Excellent pour, dark brown to black, with a great head that lasted a while. Eventually came down to a covering film. Good lacing as well. Aroma of chocolate and surprisingly, a decent amount of hops. This porter could be a good choice for a dessert beer. The flavor is semi-sweet, very light on the smoke, with licorice, chocolate and dark fruitiness up front, followed by a mild alcohol finish. Probably some coffee in there too. Above average, but not outstanding in my opinion.
