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.

Nice brown head that didnít have a lot of retention. The aroma is dominated (of course) by a nice brick smokehouse type smell. The chocolate and coffee are there but overpowered. The chocolate seems to come out a bit more in the flavor and thatís good because I donít generally like my smoked porters to taste like beef jerky. The mouthfeel was rather thin for a porter and the finish was quick and uneventfull. I was happy with this beer as far as the style goes but wouldnít go out of my way for it. This is the best Smoked Porter Iíve ever had. Unfortunately, that list isnít very distinguished.

The Stone Smoked Porter pours almost black with a fluffy light brown head, but embodies a very red hue when you hold it up to a light. The flavors of smoke and roasted malt are more subtle than I would have expected, especially from Stone co. but the beer is more drinkable than I expected too. A pleasant porter.

not a huge fan of porters personally. this one does have a unique smoked flavor that is quite enjoyable. the bistro makes an outstanding smoked porter bbq sauce that i’m sure would be good on just about anything! yum

An excellent smoked porter. I sensed so much of a ghosty quality in this beer that it nearly scared my pants off. My pants came off shortly after, but for completely unrelated reasons. Best smoked porter Ive had thus far.

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!

Pours black with a nice white head. Good flavor with a hints of dark roasted coffee and chocolate. Let this one warm up and more flavors start to pop up. Another fine beer from Stone

22 oz bottle. It tastes just like I’m eating a BBQ. Smoke, oak, coffee, chocolate. Very easy to drink, I just with it had a higher ABV. Great for drinking outdoors on a hot day.

Bottle from local shop. Poured very deep brown with foamy yellow head. Very earthy smoke flavor. Slightly sweet malty finish, almost like a cola.
