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 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.

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 :>

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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a great thick black, tan head. The head is not huge, but definitely gets the job done. The flavors are great, the smokiness balances the sweet chocolate and the coffee is a nice back note. There are also of course some great malty flavors. Finish is very dry, overall balance is fantastic.

Bottle - pours dark, dark amber with a lively head. Aroma is nice and smokey but not overpowering; taste is smokey with toasted malt and a coffee semisweet aftertaste. Nice for a smokey beer, not something I would drink all night, but a great once-in-a-while brew!

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2007 Good beer, tried it with a PB & J as suggested on the bottle, nice compliment. Smoke flavor was more pronounced to me than the bottle and some other ratings suggest. Quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries.

Really enjoyed this (more-so after it got a bit warmer). Pour damn near black.

tturner (111) - , Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 pours deep dark brown with a slight head that looks almost creamy. stays lacy throughout. I Don’t get an overwhelming smokiness like the name would suggest... at least not like you’d find in a Paradox (Brew Dog). Great, solid brew. This beer improves greatly with warming, finding a nice balance.

Great color and aroma, off in a little in the flavor, maybe more coffee taste would be appropriate
