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.

This stuff smells rich. Toffee and coffee, nice carbonation on the intake, a little dry and sweet, it sticks with you. A real great beer.

Poured from the bottle, this is a very dark, intense brown with not a lot of foam. In this sample, the nose is not distinctive other than a slight muskiness – I wonder is this one’s been on the store shelf too long. Although the finish does deliver a somewhat smoky taste, it’s characterized by a thin finish and bitter aftertaste, rather uncomplicated. I agree with lj6880 that this presents like a black lager.

Good Solid Porter. Dark brown with good head. Roasted arouma with coffee hints. Same goes for flavor. Great mouth feel( on the lighter side) All in all a fine example of style, well balanced. Cheers

Silky Smooth and very drinkable. The aroma is not to good on this one, I have to say that is the only downfall. Black body, with white head with a smooth mouth feel.

Bottled. This porter pours black with a large fizzy light-brown head. The aroma is malty with only a slight hint of roast and chocolate. It’s heavy and the taste is dominated by a dry roasty coffee flavor.

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!

Appearance is black with a small off white head. No translucency to background light. Aroma is slight smoke beyond a toffee, caramel, and coffee notes with a deep roasted malt. There is a slight yeast scent and sourdough scent. Taste is mildly smoky behind toffee, chocolate and coffee flavors. Also a slight bread or biscuit flavor comes through. Palate is medium but not watery with a slight fizz of carbonation on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The malts and hops are both delicate and light. Taste of light body coffee with a touch of a smoked chocolate. This is much milder in taste than in aroma. Would work in harmony with grilled fish. Enjoyed from a snifter.
