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.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Very dark brown, almost black with a finger and a half of off-white head. Smells smokey, of course, with aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and a bit of sweetness. The first sip is sweet, primarily caramel. As it warms up a bit, the slight smokiness comes out, as do the traditional porter flavors such as coffee and chocolate. A nice roasted malt taste is prevalent. I’m generally not that big of a fan of smoked beers, but this one is light enough on the smoke, and it seems to add a bit of sweetness.

Chocolatey, dry, with good complexity and balance, but only a touch of smoke.

Smoky, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, maybe some alcohol (or not). Quite an aroma. Opaque brown/black color with a tan head that was vigorous, but wasted away leaving delicate lace. Medium mouthfeel that thickens as the mild carbonation departs. Scotch smoke start, some dark roasted malt, a touch of sour, some floral hop? A smidgeon of baking chocolate. It’s smooth, but the smoke adds a rough touch to the palate. The finish is not quite dry, but not like a sweet stout either. In the end the mouth puckers a bit, and it is still not absolutely dry. The flavors go on and on. I vote for some bitter in the end. Amazing stuff.

On tap at The Taphouse, pours black with a small head. Aroma of smoke and roasted malt. Well-balanced body of roasted malt, nuts and smoke. Very fine porter.

Damn this is a good beer! Coffee and chocolate aroma is very appealing. The taste is a combination of both those flavors, together with a hint of smokiness and medium bitterness. The result is something sublime. Relatively small head atop a black body. Incidentally, I would classify this beer as a robust porter, as the smokiness is not a major player in the flavor.

Bomber poured a clear dark brown with a small, diminishing amber head. Aromas of dark chocolate, molasses, and a hint of smoke. Palate was medium bodied, smooth and dry. Flavor was smokey, bitter chocolate,and roasty with a smooth, lingeringsmokey finish.
