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.

22 oz bottle at Isaac Newtonís in Newtown Pa. Poured black as night. Very smooth down the throat. No lingering aftertaste. Excellent porter.

Yummy smoked porter that goes great with smoked meats. It does what it says right on the bottle.

Impressive head retention on a smooth finish, great color and body. Hoppy after taste

I wanted to love this smoked porter but it wasnít quite as great as I had hoped. Contrary to most other reviews I found this porter to have too dominant of a smokey taste. Itís possible it had been perhaps sitting on the shelf for quite a while so that taste might have brought out the smoke. Other than that it had a great mouth feel and aroma, I just couldnt get over the smoke. A little more subtle and it would have been sublime.

Poured from a bomber into a Pint Glass Aroma: roasted chocolate coffee beans, with a caramel hint on top. Appearance: Dark dark red, with a two finger tan head. Taste: there is a dry cocoa taste to it with light bitterness, leaves an alcohol taste and feel afterwards Palate: Feels flat with a dry alcohol finish there is no hiding of the medium ABV here. Overall: I like stouts and porters some Iíve tried alaskan smoked porter before and this is completely different in what I was expecting, Itís like that liquid smoke taste all up in your mouth not my favorite by far, but I would recommend it for someone else to try for themselves.

Great smokey taste with hearty edge. Very enjoyable with a Lebanon bologna and swiss cheese sandwich.

Nice brown head that quickly fades. Subtle aroma of smoke and dark fruit. Light body, nice subtle smokey flavor. Not overbearing. Finishes dry.

Everything about this porter is spot in for the style. The smoky flavor doesn't hit you when you first drink it but the aftertaste leaves a burning sensation in your throat. You know you just inhaled smoke.

Had this during Stone Brewing tour/ tasting while visiting North County San Diego--- the peat-smoked flavors make the beer more like a Laphroaig Scotch than your average porter. VERY nice. Even out of a plastic cup.

Iíve had this on tap and just had it last night by the bottle. Itís a really great beer, with a nice smoked flavor. Itís just a great porter and well
