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.

The best part’s the appearance - it’s rather beautiful. The consistency and mouth-feel are also nice, but I find the flavor pretty dull. Dark, smoky, dry: It’s all that, yes... but not strikingly tasty. Extra credit for being from my hometown of San Diego, though. :)

Aroma of licorice, coffee, pine and grapefruit. Taste of dark chocolate, hint of smoke, dark fruit. Bitterness reminds of coffee.

Appearance - Body is very dark brown, but I am able to see through it when held to the light. A 1/2 finger of off-white foam forms, but fades to a ring around the glass quite quickly. Bubbles float lazily to the top, making this look like a more viscous beer. Aroma - Smoke is not really a major player in the nose. There are toasted malt and chocolate notes as well as a touch of sharper burnt grains--possibly the smoke coming through. T - Mildly sweet and sharp dark toasted malts up front. I get a sense of the richer chocolate and caramel malt body as well as the smokiness through the middle. Finish has a sharp bitterness from the hops/roasted grain. Mouthfeel - Medium body with good carbonation. Finish is quite clean and leaves only a residual bitterness, but no sticky sugars.

This is a dam good beer! I will be brewing it myself soon! aroma is sweet and smokey and it looks scary. The taste starts and ends with a slight smokiness. Nice job Stone!

A great porter from Stone Brewery Co. A: roasted malts, caramel smell, coffee taffy vibe. A: 3 finger caramel head, dark brown color with a light dark ruby red hue at the bottom of glass, nice creamy lacing, and had minimal carbonation. T: Taste smoked coffee beans like a mocha with bitter hops. P: roasted malts from the front to middle of the palate then a nice bitter hop taste at the back of the palate. O: I would drink this during the winter time not at a bbq.

Disappointed. Somewhat flat (maybe it was just my bottle). I prefer a more bitter beer.

Do not make he mistake of drinking this beer too cold. It comes alive when it warms up. Pours very dark with a nice thick tan head. Feels light and silky on the tongue. Carmel, dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla then finishes with a lovley burnt espersso. Tastes like .... more.

I hoped my love for smoked chipotle peppers and a good porter would make this a favorite. Maybe I just have an unsophisticated palate, but this tastes like bacon-flavored beer.

This beer is above and beyond one of the all time best dark beers that you can have whenever and whatever still you prefer

This is the beer that made me look for more by Stone. Smokey, but not overwhelming. One of my favorites, a dark, full-bodied beer -- glad my "beer guy" can get the bombers by the case for me.
