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.

Bomber. Pours very dark/opaque with a creamy tan head. A bit of soap in the nose. First taste is wonderful. A bit of caramel, smoke, and a touch of fruit. A little coffee taste as well. Just a touch metallic. Very good smoked porter.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a minimal head. Chocolate and smokey aroma. There is a strong smokey flavor, that can be almost overwhelming. I was expecting the smokey flavor to have a resolution, but it did not come. Still a very nice porter, but I had higher expectations

Poured like root beer. Had an slightly smoky aroma, slight but present . Had a very weak light taste, a taste almost as thin as the beer. I would have expected more flavor from the label but it just was not there.

Pint bottle, poured into a traditional mug. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Poured solid black. Nice light tan head, wavy lacing, and even thick geographic lacing that caked the inner walls of my mug, something I have never seen before. Noticed the smokyness at the nose, and strong flavors of dark chocolate, coffee just a twinge of a rasberry. Awesomely a nice blend of hop bitterness with malt sweetness, could not get over the smokyness. A medium or heavier mouth feel. Overall I was very impressed with this superbly executed porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. Seems like an average porter to me. The label is a pretty accurate description actually, I could taste the smoke as 'an element'. Decent hop flavor. Tasty, but I prefer other porters.

Bomber, 22 oz. Dark brown with thin tan head. Smoke flavor is too subtle for my tastes given other smoked porters I’ve had. Relatively solid proter otherwise.

Pint glass. Pours very dark brown, almost jet black looking. With a light brown, frothy, 1 finger head. I smell coffee, and thats about it. Mouthfull is medium. Very smooth, comfortable and drinkable. Low carbonation. Tastes of coffee, expresso, and dark chocolate. Not as bitter and hoppy as i usually like. Or expect from stone, but is over all a very good, casual desert beer. Would follow nicely with red meats. Stone has yet to dissapoint.
