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.

Very, very dark brown, with a dark tan head. If served very cold it is a good idea to let this sit for 5-10 minutes before drinking or the beer will have little flavor. If tasted at the right temperature, hints of coffe and chocolate are present. This is a great porter, and another good beer from Stone!

Bottle, Dark brown. Very perceptible chocolate flavor, slightly sweet, lower carbonation would be nice. Smoke becomes more evident in the finish.

Good balance for a Stone Brewery product. Malt,smokiness, coffee, caramel chocolate and hops. A very easy drinker. On my regular list.

Aroma had distinct coffee and roasty character. Appearance brown with touch of red. Taste was slightly bitter. Medium body and had average carbonation. To me the beer was average at best but then again I have high expectations for Stone being from San Diego.

1 pt bottle poured into pint glass. Dark brown body with off-white head which lingers well. Smooth drinking with hints of coffee, chocolate and smokey wood. Another good Stone beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am not going to go through the snob bullshit. Drink this if you have the chance. A bloody steak and some friends all good.

22 oz. bottle split two ways. Poured very dark, limited tan head. Flavor a dark nutty chocolate smoke. An enjoyable drink.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2004 This is a dark porter which is ideally smoked. As with most Stones, it's strong and flavorful. Masterful balance of the hops. I seek this beer out!

Quality porter. The smoke and mild hops create a very smooth finish. Probably the tamest Stone brew I’ve had yet. My only gripe is that the body is noticibly thin as it warms.
