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.

hoppyhead12 (12) - Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Poured from bottle. Dark black appearance with lasting head, very nice lacing. At first sip strong smoke flavor comes out, with roasted and coffee notes. Good beer, not a favorite I’d go back to though.

bastarda (72) - Freiburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014
on tap@Hopfenreich, Berlin. faint aroma of smoke, stronger aromas of coffee, malt-coffee, a faint touch of toffee. well-balanced, very good drinkability, tastes only faintly of smoke, this being my first Stone I had expected a bit more concerning complexity of flavours, hm...

Eructoblaster (3014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle - 650ml. Pours a very dark brown body with a good beige foamy head. Nice, well balanced, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, coffeeish, roasted cereals, and some oaky hints. Its perfectly balanced malty/hoppy taste carries the same roasty, chocolate, and woody notes as the aroma. In addition some subtle anise hints are noticeable. Ends with a long bitter/roasty finish. Very well done.

Martin243 (769) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
1pt 6fl oz bottle served in a chalice. Dark, dark ruby with a thin beige head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with similar flavours, and some vanilla sweetness. Subtle rather than aggressive, the smokiness is quite subdued, the palate rich and smooth, the overall effect a seductive well balanced beer.

Bottle at a tasting. Pour is black with a small caramel head, aroma is sweet roast malt with light smokiness. Taste is smoky, rich maltiness, light coffee and a balanced finish. Very good

Smokey initial flavor with chocolate aftertaste, dry bite sort of pale. Gets better when warm and through most of the bottle

stevoj (2152) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with velvety, creamy beige head. Soft burnt wood aroma, some coffee, some peat. taste has some of the smoke flavor, some chocolate, lots of the dark roast grains. Still plenty bitter, but with a nice fireside feel.

jrodooo5 (1015) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Beautiful dark park w/ a great tan head that leaves excellent lacing! Very good smoke, chocolate, & slightly fruity aroma. The light mouthfeel is fantastic as it’s medium bodied but the smoke flavor is just a touch too much. Just a tiny bit more balance w/ the chocolate flavor would make this beer damn near perfect! The smoke is an interesting touch on the porter & overall this is a terrific brew!

ComradeK (1022) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2014
650ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby-flashed black, with a smallish beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Black coffee and milk chocolate are the dominant aromas, with a little caramel sweetness and smoke in the mix as well. A brief initial milk chocolate flavour soon fades into herbal hops. Black coffee and dark chocolate in the mid-palate give way to a subtle blend of smokiness and sweetness akin to that of an Islay scotch in the finish. A very nice, subtly smoky porter.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
A chestnut colored beer with just an average foam head that leaves a fair amount of lacing down the side. Aromas of rich malts and sutle hints of smokiness. A nice tasting beer with rich complex malts over sutle background smokiness. Hints of coffee and espresso are present with an underlying hop bitterness. Smooth full body beer creamy, but a little watery. A nice well made beer.
