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.

Great dark brown color with a thick tan head and outstanding lace. Aroma of dark malt and chocolate with a very pleasant taste of malt, chocolate and coffee that leaves the palate with a slight hop bitterness. Overall a very pleasant Porter.

Pours a nice dark ruby, with a thick, light tan head that stays. Aroma of malt, floral hops, very gentle smoke. Taste is bitter over sweet, drawing out the malt. Getting dark chocolate, bit of coffee. Gentle bitter finish. Nice porter, for sure.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Poured from a 660ml bottle, very dark, black in the centre with mahogany edges. Couldn’t get much in aroma, some smokiness and coffee. Wonderful taste, a fantastic balance of malt, chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Great mouthfeel, medium bodied, smooth with a bitter finish. An excellent porter, would definitely recommend.

Pours a very dark amber almost black, love the smokey aroma. Woody, chocolate and roasted wheat flavors, the smoke does not overpower.

Pours a dark ruby with nice amount of off white head. Smells smokey with hints of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. The taste was really good. Vanilla upfront with peat smoke not dominating the whole beer. At the end chocolate, coffee, and some hops come through to balance everything out! Pretty light palate. One of my favorite porters I tried so far! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent Porter américain. Sans être trop porter ni trop américain nous pouvons goûter les multiples saveurs. Le caramel, le fûmé, l’agrume-houblon et le malt chocolat. Bu tiède, les saveurs ressortent davantage et la soirée n’est que plus agréable.

I have to say that I think this beer is one of the easiest-to-drink beers I’ve ever had. Mild but noticable tones of smoke, chocolate, and vanilla with a fine creamy texture. A lovely smooth texture. The more I have this beer the more I love it!

This brew pours a dark, almost black color with a band of light tan head. Lacing retains somewhat but is not significant. The smell is of smoke and semi-sweet chocolate. The first taste to hit the tongue is the smokiness followed immediately by the nicely roasted malt. A hint of dark chocolate can be tasted as well. The finish is a very roasted flavor with a hint of charcoal. An excellent blend in the finish. The carbonation is done very well and complements the brew’s viscocity. A fine tasting brew that all could drink all night. Extremely drinkable and proves to be yet another astounding offering from Stone. Reviewed on: 12-20-2007

Sweet fairly mild aroma. Frothy/creamy tan head and dark brown color. Medium-heavy body. Somewhat dry smoky/burnt flavor with a tiny bite.
