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 smooth. Dark pour, thick head. Reminds me of Guinness. Tasty with only a hint of smokey roasted taste. Good beer.

Smells like a campfire. Really nice dark beer with smokey BBQ-like flavors mixed with chocolate and coffee. It immediately feels like it's going to be harsh going down, but it's actually really smooth and has a great smokey finish. One of my favorites

Bottle thanks to a friend of mine. Poured a jet dark black with a thin, bubbly, off white head. I liked the aroma of this one, almost charred. Like burnt mixed with sweet chocolate malts, carmel and coffee. Taste is even better, with heavy smoke. I havent had to many smoked beers, but I’m lovin this. It’s going great with my BBQ chicken, for the 4th of July I dont think I’d want any other beer.

Burnt coffee, and toast smells. Woody hops, little bit of smokiness. Fairly light aroma. Pours a very nice dark brown with red tinges. Tan head with minor lacing. Very bitter on the tongue, with a little bit of caramelly sweetness. Clean on the palette, doesn’t leave any nasty residues or feelings. Leaves your mouth feeling refreshed.

Beautiful deep brown/red in color. Has a light head is tan, dissipates quickly leaving only small ring. Smokey, slightly bitter aroma. Very robust smokey taste. The dark chocolate/coffee malt is initial taste followed by a wonderfully balanced bitter, hoppy finish. Excellent porter.

Dark and rich in appearance. Initial smokey flavor although no smokey after taste. I hoped the beer had more of a coffee overtone but alas it didn’t.

Great looking porter poured from a 22oz bomber. Large frothy head of light brown and lasts most the pint. Dark black/brown appearance with a slight red hue when held to the light. The aroma of this beer is what struck me. Heavy malt and molasses/roasted chocolate and virtually no hop aroma but did detect a bit of bread/dough. Smokey smell was light, I expected it heavier and it would have been invited.

Unfortunately, this smoked porter did not live up to the aroma for me. Albeit a great beer, it had a lightly sweet initial flavor but I was struck immediately with fair bitter taste with a hint of smoke. Exceptional medium to full body with a pleasant carbonation and dry yet creamy texture. As I drank I felt it finished even more bitter and it lasted quite some time on my palate. Would surly drink again but not something I will stock in my beer fridge. A little acidic/bitter for my taste, would go great with a hearty meal.
