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, 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.

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.

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.

Dark, & a lot of depth. Mug.I liked it a lot. I grab one or two every time I see it now. All the flavors are blended perfectly to my taste. Chocolate, coffee, and a slight hint of smoked flavor. Great beer.

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.

A very dark and smoky porter. Poured in to a Libbey Porter/Stout glass. Looks beautiful with a thick off-white head. Carbonation is just right in my opinion. Flavor got more complex as the beer warmed up. Would definitely repeat.
