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.

dark brown with ruby highlights and thick tan head. aroma is roasted and smoky there is also a sweetness like that of dry fruit. the taste is rich and smoky with a clean bitter finish. thick mouthfeel but a dry finish. chocolatey aftertaste. overall very tasty and well balanced.

Solid porter with good amounts of smooth roasted malt flavor. not enough smoky flavor in my opinion, but great porter regardless.

22 oz bottle: smells of roasty smokey malt and chocolate mocha. mmm. its a dark brown/ ruby color with a fairly light brown/ tan head. i like this beer a lot, of course... slight smokey hints, but not over powering, like the rogue smoke... i htink this is a fine beer, and wouldn't mind drinking it ever.

I love porters, but am not overly fond of smoked beers. This brew, however, is not dominated by smoke. Lovely color of pitch - and a hint of brown when held up to the sun on a late lazy afternoon. The nose reminds me of summer BBQ’s at Bill’s, roasted pork butt on the smoker. Quite easy to drink, smooth and roasty with a hint of cocoa, although the smoke is one attribute I would remove, if I could. Smoke is for BBQs, not beer.

Dark Black body with light browm creamy head. Smokey, malty, coffee aroma. Malty choco, coffee, and extreme smokey aftertaste. Creamy, dry, palate.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown-black with a beige head. Laces the entire way down. Aroma is hickory and coffee. For all the praise, this was surprisingly thin. The flavors overcome that. Really nice coffee, chocolate flavors with hints of black licorice. Finishes leaving a nice smokey flavor in your mouth. A very good porter.

Ratpatrol1019 (70) - Palm desert, California, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Coffee and toffee aroma, dark black pour with nice tan head. Flavor of porter character on coffe and some caramel. Finishes pretty clean and no heat. Good drinking brew

PhysZac (69) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bomber. Pours black, not opaque, but black. Minimal brown head. Aroma is intensely coffee, smoke, wheat?, apple. Taste is upfront with cocoa and caramel. Lots of coffee and smoke. Roasted malts do not overwhelm as deScription atests. Excellent bitter quality bites at back and lingers forever. Bitterness reminds of ashes and mocha coffee. Most porters are too watery for me. Stone Smoked Porter does not have this problem, although the palate is light. My favorite porter to date.
