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.

Had high expectations for this beer after the aroma had my mouth watering. However, I was thoroughly surprised that the aroma did not transfer to the taste. Too much vanilla for my liking. Had an off taste for some reason. It just didnít tste like a Porter.

Not the best porter and not the best offering from Stone, but still a very solid, high quality beer. Big, bubbly, dark tan head dissipates quickly but leaves creamy lacing all the way down. Not much aroma. Complex taste, though just a bit hollow in the middle. Mouthfeel is not a full as I like. Good but not great.

the small bubble head seemed to last quite a while - appearance got a 5 because of the small bubbles liked the taste - def smokey - medium thinner body than i would have liked. Smokey chocolatey flavor- liked it but not close to the other Stone beers iíve had.

A really good porter, but light on the smoke flavor when compared to Alaskan Smoked Porter. Lotís of chocolate and coffee/toffee flavors. Nice and thick. Well done Porter

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.

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

On tap at tribes alehouse. Pretty much what youd expect, nothing overwhelming. Strong vanilla aftertaste, slightly dry.... its ok

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!
