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 pour, with a huge brown head that never seems to go away! Some lacing on glass. Smell is chocolate, coffee and strong burnt malt. Tatse is same with a burnt sweetness and a bit of alcohol nothing overwhelming. Good character on the tongue. Well balanced beer. Just what a expect from SBC.

Dark chocolate, grape/raisin, a touch of coffee, nuts, and soft pine on the nose. Taste was sweet up front - almost like light orange meets coffee and caramel. Shifts into mix of caramel, dark chocolate, and smoke, then fades to earthy hop, grapefruit, pine, and burnt wood. A different flavor stands out with each sip. Palate was medium-thick bodied with nice, crisp carbonation. Smooth, lightly viscous, and drying. I wish all Porters felt like this one. Stone is my favorite brewery for a reason. All four categories are brilliantly crafted and mix together to create one hell of a Porter here. Each sip shifts focus to somewhere else. The back of the bottle hits the nail on the head by saying, "Stone Smoked Porter is mysterious, smoky, and verging on utterly decadent".

This is the first beer that my dog wouldn’t even drink... SERIOUSLY. Some people may give this beer a free pass since it comes from the well-renowned Stone name, but this frankly was undrinkable. The flavor encroached on burnt Folgers’ crystals steeped in tap water. Very bitter, but not in any remotely pleasing way. The aftertaste is what truly got me, however. This is where the "smoked" comes in -- only it is like stale cigarettes. Seriously, it’s like a tea of burnt coffee and cigarettes. And with each sip, I felt as if the beer was separating into two layers: something trying to pass as a beer and some ultra watery, smoky mess that was poured into it - like some poorly mixed oil and vinegar salad dressing. A total drain pour after attempting to stomach half of the bottle.

22oz Bottle poured into english pint glass. Beautiful dark brown with ruby highlights that you can actually see light through towards the bottom of the glass. Large head with good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, alcohol and a little smoke. Taste is a little more smoke, hops, coffee, roasted malts. Very good porter.

Pours black with a greyish tan head. Not a creamy head. Aroma is not strong but I get coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel is very carbonated but itís got more body than most porters Iíve had. The flavor is a little cherry caramel and coffee. The smoke is there but it just flavors the other flavors. Itís very well balanced and drinkable. MIght be the best porter Iíve ever had. It tastes like...more.

I love the aroma, a deep smokiness with all kinds of robust chocolate and dates. Nice light brown head that is quite plentiful. Flavor is... porter. Iím just not crazy about porters for some reason. I love the smoky character to it. This is probably one of my favorite porters. I would drink a sample of this and love it, but a whole bottle is too much for me.

first you can smell the aroma of smoke,and more smoke, the frothy, head sits atop a black,as night lake of beer but i was suprised this was very light in body,soft and creamy,with little to soft carbonation, and left a long finish, of a smoky fireplace behind i had this beer with smoked mozzarella and salami.

Poured deep and dark with a tan head. Aroma was a nice smokey hop smell. First drink I was blown away on the great smokey malt taste with a great chocolate backing. The smokey adds a great touch that moves the porter from a good beer to a great beer!

definitely got the chocolate and coffee flavor. did not pick up a whole lot of the smoke flavor in it. i did have ruination the night before though, the affects of that may not have completely worn yet. thatís not a bad thing, some smokes taste like a campfire in your mouth. not a bad porter.

Bottle. Medium head that hung around. Roasted malt aroma, smoke is subtle. Creamy and smooth, medium bodied. Some chocalate. Mildly sweet. Would gladly drink more if readily available.
