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.

rlgk (10273) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2006
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Black with a small head. Cocoa and licorice aroma with salty notes. Salty cocoa flavor. Too thin and I agree with pilsnerrogge: Where is the smoke?

bierkoning (10155) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2008

madsberg (10144) - 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.

imdownthepub (10139) - 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.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2007
Pitch black with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, sweet coffee and a light touch of smoke. The flavour has notes of sweet licorice, roasted malt, slightly bitter coffee, caramel and a light touch of smoke. The finish has a light touch of citrus, mostly grapefruit. 2566

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.

hopscotch (9082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 Bottle... The aroma is great. It’s moderately malty, with a fairly strong burnt smell and hints of moasses and strong coffee. Smoke, alcohol and just a hint of charcoal comes through in the nose as well. The color of the beer is dark brown to black and the light brown, creamy head is average in size and mostly lasting. The lacing is good. Initially, in flavor, the beer is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. On the back side, it’s lightly acidic and moderately bitter. The finish really lasts and has just a whisper of salt and a nice hint of smoke. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Lively carbonation and leaves a light smack of alcohol on your tongue Stone just brews really good beers.
