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.

I love the aroma, a deep smokiness with all kinds of robust chocolate and dates. Nice light brown head that is quite plentiful. Flavor is... porter. I’m just not crazy about porters for some reason. I love the smoky character to it. This is probably one of my favorite porters. I would drink a sample of this and love it, but a whole bottle is too much for me.

22oz Bottle poured into english pint glass. Beautiful dark brown with ruby highlights that you can actually see light through towards the bottom of the glass. Large head with good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, alcohol and a little smoke. Taste is a little more smoke, hops, coffee, roasted malts. Very good porter.

first you can smell the aroma of smoke,and more smoke, the frothy, head sits atop a black,as night lake of beer but i was suprised this was very light in body,soft and creamy,with little to soft carbonation, and left a long finish, of a smoky fireplace behind i had this beer with smoked mozzarella and salami.

Poured deep and dark with a tan head. Aroma was a nice smokey hop smell. First drink I was blown away on the great smokey malt taste with a great chocolate backing. The smokey adds a great touch that moves the porter from a good beer to a great beer!

definitely got the chocolate and coffee flavor. did not pick up a whole lot of the smoke flavor in it. i did have ruination the night before though, the affects of that may not have completely worn yet. that’s not a bad thing, some smokes taste like a campfire in your mouth. not a bad porter.

Bottle. Medium head that hung around. Roasted malt aroma, smoke is subtle. Creamy and smooth, medium bodied. Some chocalate. Mildly sweet. Would gladly drink more if readily available.

Bottled. Pours a thick motor oil black with no head. An incredible beer with smoke, chocolate, fruit, and caramel. Very smooth, very calm. Seems like it should be stronger, and it probably should be. Will definitely have to buy again.

Pours dark brown with a good light brown head that lasts. Aroma of sweet malt, flavor of chockolate and caramel, nice finish. All in all an excellent porter.

Dark brown/black with thick tan head. Sweet aroma, creamy texture. Nice sweet malt but only a hint of smoke and a bit short on finish.

There is a lot to appreciate in this nicely priced Porter. Great earthy aromatics on the nose and the first sip was instantly smokey with big mouth-feel but, not sticky. Finish is still malt-forward with a nod to some mild hop dryness. Great iteration of the style!
