Poured from bottle. Dark black appearance with lasting head, very nice lacing. At first sip strong smoke flavor comes out, with roasted and coffee notes. Good beer, not a favorite Iíd go back to though.

Excellent smoked porter- rich, smooth and just a hint of chocolate and smoke. Not much smokiness in the aroma though. Very dark with beige head. Better than Stone brewery's Arrogant Bastard Ale, however the back of the Smoked Porter bottle is less entertaining than it's cousin's. This brew is very filling, but would be paired nicely with some creamy scalloped potatoes, butternut squash soup or chocolate cake. Highly reccomend.

Another one of Stoneís excellent beers. The smokiness is immediately noticeable, along with flavors like caramel, coffee and chocolate.

Grabbed a bottle at BEVMO while in San Jose. Great tasting porter, smoky burnt coffee nose and a smokey coffee and dark chocolate taste. Cheers to Stone!

Overall a great porter, nice dark brown color with a creamy coffee colored head. The smokey flavor of the malt is evident right away but not too over powering that it takes away from the rest of the taste.

Aroma: Smoke, Chocolate, Coffee
Appearance: Dark brown with tan head and slight lacing.
Taste: Chocolate, Coffee Malt with dark Chocolate malt finish.
Palate: Full Bodied with soft tannins, dry finish.
Overall: Sip & Savor. As a porter lover Iíd highly recommend this as a porter for that porter drinker looking for something to enjoy thatís different. Stone takes this one and runs with it.

While Double Bastard is by far my favorie ale, Smoked is one of my all time favorite beers. I love the hints coffe and chocolate. I bought 6 bottles of this and had some freinds over for a LAN party. We went back to get 6 more.....strange, but we nver actually got the LAN party roling, we just sat around enjoying the smokie taste. Decided to BBQ and watch TV instead.

Good tasting beer, but not to have frequently. At least i canít. Roasty, smoke with that common hop profile.
