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 poured black with a big beige head that dissipates quickly. Very drinkable coffee toffee caramel hints but not sweet. Best part is if you nurse it and let it warm , the last bit has an almost scotch/peaty smoke taste to it. Very nice autumn beer....Just like all the brewery’s selections.

Dark and rich in appearance. Initial smokey flavor although no smokey after taste. I hoped the beer had more of a coffee overtone but alas it didn’t.

Great looking porter poured from a 22oz bomber. Large frothy head of light brown and lasts most the pint. Dark black/brown appearance with a slight red hue when held to the light. The aroma of this beer is what struck me. Heavy malt and molasses/roasted chocolate and virtually no hop aroma but did detect a bit of bread/dough. Smokey smell was light, I expected it heavier and it would have been invited.

Unfortunately, this smoked porter did not live up to the aroma for me. Albeit a great beer, it had a lightly sweet initial flavor but I was struck immediately with fair bitter taste with a hint of smoke. Exceptional medium to full body with a pleasant carbonation and dry yet creamy texture. As I drank I felt it finished even more bitter and it lasted quite some time on my palate. Would surly drink again but not something I will stock in my beer fridge. A little acidic/bitter for my taste, would go great with a hearty meal.

The Stone Smoked Porter poured a translucent brown with an amber hue. The off-white head was massive due to a very heavy pour. A very evident lace was left as the head receded. The aroma was dominated by smoky malt. The taste was malty with a hint of spice and a smoky finish. For those of you who do not like smoked beers, be aware that as a smoked porter, there truly is not a lot of smokiness to this beer...for those of you love smoked beers you might be disappointed. The mouthfeel is mediocre, not as creamy as I would have liked but with a nice carbonation that makes the beer quite drinkable. All in all an enjoyable brew.

Dark, savoury aromas and flavours, with a bit of stewed fruits poking through. Well balanced smoked malt use it never becomes overbearing.

22 oz. shared with my Patty Cakes. Enjoyed slightly colder than room temperature, which seemes perfect. Slighlty carbonated with a light mouth feel, however it does not lack flavor. Smokey coffee, chocolate and a hint of raisins make this a tasty choice.
