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.

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.

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.

Christian (12955) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2007
Black with a red hue, lasting off-white head. Licorice dominates the aroma, also some caramel and alcohol. Dry and roast flavour, some wood notes, sweet and roast finish.

Ferris (12904) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle - Bitter chocolate, peat, berries and alcohol. Jet black with a huge foamy off white head. Chocolate, slight bitterness and of course the smoke with the berries in there as well. There is a backend sweetness that is subtle and balanced. I love smoked beers and this one although milder with the peat is pretty amazing.

(Bottle) Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a thick tan head. I typically do not care much for smoked beers, but this one had great character and flavor.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2011
Keg at CP&K. It pours jet black, with a thin beige head. The nose is roasted malt, smoke, liquorice and salted caramel. The taste is roasted malt, smoke, dark chocolate, dark cherry, salted liquorice and caramel, meat and treacle, with a dry-roasty finish and some lingering smoke. Medium body and fine carbonation. Tasty and very easy to drink.
