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.

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.

On tap at global Brew. Pours a midnight black, with a sizable off white head. Sweet roasted malt and vanilla aroma. Smokey burnt malt flavor, with vanilla and coffee notes. Nummy num!

Świetne piwo! Aromat niezbyt intensywny, choć niezwykle przyjemny, nuty palonych słodów, czysty profil, choć pod koniec zaczęła się ujawniać cudna mleczna czekolada. W smaku dzieje się za to bardzo dużo. Jako pierwsza uderza potężna paloność, która na finiszu poparta jest równe potężną chmielową goryczką tworząc długi i intensywny posmak. Nuty wędzone są delikatne, kojarzące się z whisky, świetnie spajające się z palonością, gdzieś w tle suszone owoce. Bardzo dobra pijalność, pełnia wysoka jak na tak "cienkie" piwo.

Very smooth. Dark pour, thick head. Reminds me of Guinness. Tasty with only a hint of smokey roasted taste. Good beer.

Not a big Porter fan...at least not before I tasted this brew. This beer is a great example of a big time hop head converting a bit to the dark side. The smell was decent, but the taste, mouthfeel, and finish were very good. Now I’m apt to try more Porters to stack up, and see how this one really MEASURES up! Keep on drinking...

Very good porter, not much smoke. Smooth almost milky when swallowed . Can’t stop sipping long enough to type. I will be getting this one again...soon!

Much rather have the vanilla bean addition!! Not a bad brew, but the smokiness overtakes the porter taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice deep dark brown with a light milk chocolate colored head. I love the smokey flavor with the subtle hints of chocolate.

Smoke is mildly present, malt is balanced averagely with the chocolate. Coffee is also present, not overwhelming though.

smokey enough to satisfy my smoke craving. chocaletey with a hint of dark coffee, there’s a lightness in here somewhere, but I have a tough time placing it...perhaps deep caremely? maybe it’s in the malt? full bodied, also slightly nutty. I didn’t care for the "arrogant bastard" as much as the ratings on here would indicate, but I found this to be a very satisfying and complex brew.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Coffee, nuts, and a very faint hint of smoke. Not your average porter, almost tastes more like a brown ale to me. Still good though.
