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.

Slightly out of style, picking up roasted barley in the mouth and nose. High bitterness and roasted malt levels comparable to a stout. Aroma is awesome. Slight smokiness in the nose and more in the taste, you have to fill your mouth with it to really enjoy the smokiness. Overall it is a good beer but not living up to its current rating in the 98th percentile. Warm with a cigar and this beer is even better.

AGED 2 YEARS Brown. Slight amber. Small lacy head. Muted and slightly malty nose with a whisper of roasty smoke. Nice mouth. Creamy with a touch of complex smokiness left. Almost medicinal Woody bark and dark roast finish. Needs chocolate. Very interesting but I think it is better fresh. ---That dog will hunt!

Poured from a 22 oz bottle purchased at Stone Brewing Co. Very dark brown/black with a rich tan head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, roasted coffee, and very light smoke. Very enjoyable to drink. Slightly sweet, and very light bitter finish. Very nice lacing, more sticky than expected.

Tap at a beerfest. Nice dark brown color. Nice warm aroma, chocolate and bit of caramel. A little more bitter than expected, but good roast taste. Something a bit off about the after taste, but good solid porter overall.

This is the only Stone beer I didn't like. I don't like the combination of smoked and bitter.

Great dark brown color with a thick tan head and outstanding lace. Aroma of dark malt and chocolate with a very pleasant taste of malt, chocolate and coffee that leaves the palate with a slight hop bitterness. Overall a very pleasant Porter.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Poured from a 660ml bottle, very dark, black in the centre with mahogany edges. Couldn’t get much in aroma, some smokiness and coffee. Wonderful taste, a fantastic balance of malt, chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Great mouthfeel, medium bodied, smooth with a bitter finish. An excellent porter, would definitely recommend.

Fairly pronounced smokiness in the aroma but the taste is really where the smoked malt comes through. Very smooth, black pour with a quickly dissipating tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I have to say that I think this beer is one of the easiest-to-drink beers I’ve ever had. Mild but noticable tones of smoke, chocolate, and vanilla with a fine creamy texture. A lovely smooth texture. The more I have this beer the more I love it!
