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.

Bomber. Pours very dark/opaque with a creamy tan head. A bit of soap in the nose. First taste is wonderful. A bit of caramel, smoke, and a touch of fruit. A little coffee taste as well. Just a touch metallic. Very good smoked porter.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a minimal head. Chocolate and smokey aroma. There is a strong smokey flavor, that can be almost overwhelming. I was expecting the smokey flavor to have a resolution, but it did not come. Still a very nice porter, but I had higher expectations

22 oz. Seems like an average porter to me. The label is a pretty accurate description actually, I could taste the smoke as 'an element'. Decent hop flavor. Tasty, but I prefer other porters.

Bomber, 22 oz. Dark brown with thin tan head. Smoke flavor is too subtle for my tastes given other smoked porters I’ve had. Relatively solid proter otherwise.

Pint glass. Pours very dark brown, almost jet black looking. With a light brown, frothy, 1 finger head. I smell coffee, and thats about it. Mouthfull is medium. Very smooth, comfortable and drinkable. Low carbonation. Tastes of coffee, expresso, and dark chocolate. Not as bitter and hoppy as i usually like. Or expect from stone, but is over all a very good, casual desert beer. Would follow nicely with red meats. Stone has yet to dissapoint.

A delicious porter with very little smoke flavor apparent. Although the smoke flavor is not apparent the chocolate-like flavor, smooth body and creamy head are the reasons to drink this wonderful brew.

From the tap out of my growler. Pours a near pitch black with a tan head. Smell of sweet chocolate and subtle coffee notes. Taste is very sweet and robust from the chocolate and smokiness. Great malt body that also gives it itís sweet body. Good beer.
