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.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2005 Nice beer. Never had a smoked beer before. I thought it would be like drinking bbq or something. This was really nice. It had a good bitter hoppy flavor... and the smoke wasn’t over powering.

Thick head but falls quickly. Malty, roasty nose with a hint of burnt coffee. Smokiness readily apparent but not overpowering at all. Moderate bitterness. Slightly sweet but somewhat balanced. Long, smoky/roasty finish with plenty of body. Very Stout-like due to prominent roast and bitterness.

lots of somke on the way down, with hints of chocolate, and coffee. Not bad at all.

Bottled. Coffe flavour. Very bitter. Bit dryish. Brown colour. Bit simplified and not very full. Nutty. Not at all amazed.

Not bad although not what I would have expected from a smoked porter. The smokiness is very light if not a negligible aspect of this particular brew. Coffee and chocolate tones are more prominent. Head is thick, tan, and sustained: much like a Gunniess. Not bad, not great.

Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of smokiness. Nicest aroma I've yet run across in a beer. Beautiful appearance - nice creamy tan head, dark brown color, excellent lacing. Taste is good - the chocolate and coffee really come out, along with the "bite" of the beer. Smooth and a little creamy on the palate. Good finish. A new favorite of mine. Not something I'd guzzle...this is something to be savored.

Bills (21) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Dark/carmel pour with a small sweet head. Good beer with hints of espresso and chocolate laced with a smoked finish. Great porter- would recommend it to everyone.

Extremely rich, and delicious. Not very smoky but one of my favorite porters.

wamoore84 (20) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Stone has never failed me before, and this smoked porter was no exception. In fact, this is the best Stone beer I’ve had. The smoke taste is just perfect, not overpowering, but very evident. Very dry beer. The more porters I try, the more I realize the superiority of Stone Smoked Porter.

A bit chalky for my taste, and little to no smoke. Could have been sweeter, too. Otherwise, an okay porter from a really good brewing company
