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 nice, with the smoke very much in the background. Really just enough to keep things interesting. Borderline stout, as it is pitch black and pretty smooth. Not really a SMOKED porter, but a smoked PORTER. It does tie the room together though.

Maybe I am spoiled by other brews, but this was pretty disheartening. No smoked flavor to be had, very thin body and thinner flavor. Malt/toast flavor, hint of alcohol warmth, and then, gone..... Bah! Perhaps it didnít get a chance to fully warm, but I tried to give it a proper chance.
Sampled at Roziís Wine & Liquor, Stone Tasting Event, Lakewood, OH.

Lots of flavor! This is not for the faint hearted. There is plenty of chocolate and coffee notes in the flavor and the head/aroma is a thing of beauty.

Really nice porter. The smoke is not huge anywhere. The nose is espresso and chocolate. Color is black is a light head. Taste is coffee, chocolate and hints of smoke. Palate is very smooth and full bodied.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2007 Split a 22 oz. bottle with friends. Head lasted a while. Good coffee/caramel flavor with underwhelming smoke. Smooth. Overall, Iím a big fan.

Appearance: Pours jet black. Dark Ruby Red color when held to the light with a 1 1/2 to 2 finger tan bubbly head Smell: First nose dip brang heavy chocolate maltiness with a touch of espresso and brown sugar. smelled a littl grapefruit rine from the hops. After giving it a little swirl the heavier smoke smells and a bourbon like booziness become apparent. Taste: Hard Smoke like iím enjoying a cuban.... cigar. It hits on the outside of the tongue with a nice silky layer of decedent chocolate sifting over the middle of my tongue. Just an ever so slight hint of caramel pops out here and there. it sits and waits in the background till you ahve wore out the smoke and chocolate. Mouthfeel: creamy on the top of the tongue, hard on the sides with the smoke edginess. leaves a very slight stickiness on the upper lip. Drinkability: I want some blackened chicken and roasted corn, perhaps texas style BBQ. Char some meat a little bit and drink this with it. mmmm. I remember having some cheesess with Ash rind. I think those would be deligtful with this. I could drink this with that food or on its own. I think late fall would be great for this when you can smell the russian ash trees. right when it gets cold and you light the fire. very nice.

Bottle. Pours a burnt brown with a nice 1 finger creamy, tan head. The aroma reminded me of the smell of your clothes after a night next to the campfire. The flavor, much to my surprise, was not dominated by the smokey notes but rather by the roasted malt character. There are hints of smooth chocolate and dark fruits as well.
