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.

hohops (545) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle, BB 28/08/15. Appearance is very dark mahogany brown, with a 1-2 finger pillowy beige head which slowly subsides. Aroma- chocolate first and foremost, dark malts, caramel, burnt toast, tobacco smoke hints. Taste- barbecue smoke, burnt malts, chocolate milkshake, bitter coffee grounds, biscuity caramel. Smooth mouthfeel, with some carbonation in the background. Very nice stuff.

Beergaard (236) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
Meaty and smokey aroma with notes of especially chocolate. Taste is equally smokey, somewhat subtle though, with notes of chocolate, coffee and a quite dry finish.

Yorker (1658) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2015
66 cl bottle @ home. Pours brown with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, chocolate, and a little smoke - with a roasted finish.

kevinator (1431) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Always have enjoyed this. Big but subtle smoked malt and chocolate aroma. Dark brown but not solid color with a full head. Medium to light body. Flavor is complimenting smoke to a roasted chocolate base with earthy and woody tones. Hops give it a solid bitter and dry finish.

Rated based on notes taken 16 Mar 2014 -- A 2012 bottle we drank at a bottle share. This beer held up extremely well. Delish.

22 bomber to cervoise. Pours ruby-black, brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, toffee, smoke and toasted malts. Taste is the same with tamed hop bitterness. Finish is milky, cocoa, toast and coffee. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium-light with light carb.

Ah, Stone Smoked Porter. You tasty, tasty bastard, you. I’ve shared good times with your Vanilla-infused sibling, but you’re just as delicious all by yourself, aren’t you? Wait, why am I starting this review by addressing the beer? Why did I think that was a good idea? Forget it. Stone Smoked Porter smells like coffee, chocolate, and smoke. It tastes like it smells. The peat character and acrid bitterness are subtle enough not to be overpowering but assertive enough to enhance the roasted malts. Mouthfeel is dry and robust. Honestly, I wasn’t able to drink enough of this to make me happy. Smoked Porter made me a better person in the short time it was in front of me.

aleksander9 (836) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
Brown with tan head. Smoke, ash and caramel. Sweet, ash and oak finish. Overall: nice ashy notes. The rest is quite casual.

Dazz3 (1688) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2015
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a big brown head. Smells and tastes coffee, roasted malt, smoked meat and bread malty with a similar finish.
