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.

Bottle. [thank you sk8viking].
2006 ’vintage’.
Pours blackish with a clear red-ness around the edges. A small creamy dark beige head settles nicely on top, before quickly becoming a thin film. Aroma is quite sweet, with a clear smoky edge. There are roasted caramel, a little coffee, some distant cherries as well. Quite high carbonation, making the beer relatively fresh. Flavour is great! There is some mild roasted tones, a good deal of chocolate, and only after a little while, the smokyness hits me - slow-burning. A nice well-rounded bitterness rounds it up nicely. A really great brew!

imdownthepub (11384) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2012
Keg at The Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London. Dark chestnut with white head. Quite sharp initially and surprisingly, this developed quite a bitter, malty flavour. There is a hint of smoke, just a tad, there is also liquorice and nuts. A good rounded beer, liked it.

22-oz bottle. Pours black with brown hints and a medium frothy tan head; lined lacing. Smoked dark roasted malt aroma, some chocolate notes, but not much going on here. Heavy bitter start with smoked dark roasted malt and chocolate with an acidic light finish. Full bodied and dark fizzy palate.

madsberg (10711) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Clear. Has a light brown head. Light smoked, maltish and chocolatish aroma. Is malty, light spiced and light roasted in the flavour. Not much smoke to be noticed. Is thin bodied but yet smooth. Dies quickly on the palate. Has to draw a few points, because the smoke character imo is too vague.
