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.

A very fine porter. Roasted malt, cocoa, some hints of coffee, and a nice smokiness that strangely smooths out this beer. Well done!

Pours like the black of night. A nice white to off white head develops. Aroma is roasted malt and smoke. Flavor is deep smoked and roasted malt with a nice countering bitterness. Quite dry finish, but that cleans it all up. Quite tasty. Mouthfeel is substantial but not quite coating which is appropriate for a porter, but I would call this basically an Imperial Porter. Drinkability is great considering this is very flavorful brew.

Pours dark dark brown from the bottle. Lots of coffee and smoke in the nose. Makes me crave gouda cheese. Flavor didn’t leave me dissapointed at all, mostly roasted coffee, and dark chocolate, but definate smokiness in the finish. Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy a bit. Quality brew.

Wow. I finally tried this stuff. Picked up a bomber from Jasper’s in Nashua. Pours like oil, black and completely opaque. Cream colored one finger head that recedes quickly. Vanilla, caramel, coffee, and maybe licorice (?) in the aroma. Full bodied mouthfeel, roasty malt character, chocolate, medium sweetness, smokiness, and just a bit of hop on the backend. This was a fantastic brew, and replaces Anchor as my favorite porter.

Pours dark black and brown with small white/tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, nuts and coffee. Slightly smokey. Smooth flavor of Chocolate malts with a medium body.

One of the best smoked porters I have ever had. Balance between the smoke, roast, toast, cocoa, hops and sweetness has got to be tough, but Stone has done it!

ChrisJ (100) - Warrenton, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 Pours dark brown with a robust 2+ finger head which left nice medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has notes of coffee and a hint of smoke. Flavor has notes of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. The smoke is subordinate. Very dry slightly bitter finish. Mouth feel is medium and very smooth.

Bottle. Deep brown pour, hints of dark red around the edges, generous light tan head that left good lacing behind. Aroma is slightly smoky, some roasty malt notes to complement. Flavor is mostly smoky, some earthy flavors in there too, roasty, and a nice bitter note as it finishes. Medium bodied, carbonation and smoky flavor leaves a pleasant sensation in my mouth. Overall, another solid Stone beer.

Jet black in a medium light environment. Nice sized off white head. Detectable chocolate and coffee flavors. Excellent beer!
