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.

Pours a nice dark ruby, with a thick, light tan head that stays. Aroma of malt, floral hops, very gentle smoke. Taste is bitter over sweet, drawing out the malt. Getting dark chocolate, bit of coffee. Gentle bitter finish. Nice porter, for sure.

Pours black with an off-white head, almost identical to the picture. Wonderful crisp taste despite being such a dark beer. I can definitely taste hints of chocolate and cafe flavors. Slight burnt taste that complements the subtle overtones. Smooth brew...def. a good job by stone. At only 2.99 for 1.6 pints at trader joe’s, it’s a beer worth trying.

It poured smooth and dark with a grand volume of light brown head. The head subsided and left a half inch nestled on the top of this rich, dark beer. The aroma entwined smoked malts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Flavors of coffee and malt are abundant. The smoke taste is subtle but noticeable. Chocolate comes on as an aftertaste. Very nice.

Excellent Porter américain. Sans être trop porter ni trop américain nous pouvons goûter les multiples saveurs. Le caramel, le fûmé, l’agrume-houblon et le malt chocolat. Bu tiède, les saveurs ressortent davantage et la soirée n’est que plus agréable.

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!

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.
