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.

Appearance - Body is very dark brown, but I am able to see through it when held to the light. A 1/2 finger of off-white foam forms, but fades to a ring around the glass quite quickly. Bubbles float lazily to the top, making this look like a more viscous beer. Aroma - Smoke is not really a major player in the nose. There are toasted malt and chocolate notes as well as a touch of sharper burnt grains--possibly the smoke coming through. T - Mildly sweet and sharp dark toasted malts up front. I get a sense of the richer chocolate and caramel malt body as well as the smokiness through the middle. Finish has a sharp bitterness from the hops/roasted grain. Mouthfeel - Medium body with good carbonation. Finish is quite clean and leaves only a residual bitterness, but no sticky sugars.

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.

Bottle with James K and Bert. Deep brown with a small tan head, although we were using James’s nice bone porcelain mugs. The aroma is chocolatey, subtle smoke. A little more smoke in the flavour, lightly sweet chocolate and roast malt, ashy, tart smoky finish. Medium body. A really good porter.

TET (1565) - FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
A colablack beer with a big, dense and beige head. The nose has roastiness, dry smoke and coffee. After dominating elements there are also some dark bread, chocolate and herbs. Taste has smooht smoke, chocolate, some nice sweetness and bitterness, also coffee in the end. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, very smooth to drink. Good beer, the smoke is not too dominating, quite complex.

650ml bottle from Saveur Biere

Black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee beans and some smoke. Flavour of coffee, roastiness, ashy notes. Mouth-feel is rich. I think that this porter doesn’t need more ABV, this is fine just like this.

Transfer from BA review on 5-23-12- Poured from 22 oz bomber into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep brown nearly black color with a thick one finger tan head. The head had very nice retention leaving a medium amount of lacing. Smell – Roasted malt is heaviest in the nose. These are cocoa and dark bread in nature with lighter hints of some smokiness, pine and a nice caramel/brown sugar sweetness. Taste – A smooth roasted malt and cocoa flavor mixed with a light sweet caramel start the taste out. The caramel fades as some hoppy flavors come to the tongue. These are largely earthy in nature with lighter flavors of pine. At the end, the smoke that is suggested in the name, comes to fruition along with a resurgence (light resurgence) of some sweeter flavors. Overall a very nice taste is left on the tongue in the end. Mouthfeel – Creamier then the average brew with a slightly lighter level of carbonation. Very nice for the roasty-smoky flavors of the brew. Overall – It’s a rather easy to drink, roasty and a good go to for a slightly dryer porter. Not too shabby.

Bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with a big mostly lasting creamy beige head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of hay and grass. Light to medium bitter and lightly sweet in a light body. Light smoky flavor mixed with dark malt and bitter hops. A bit too much carbonation and a long bitter finish.

mathieuc (1166) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours a medium brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves good lacing (in a plastic cup at the Mondial, anyway). Nose is of smoke, smoke and more smoke. For sure there is some roasted malt in there but I cannot find it. Taste is moderately bitter, offers smoke and some burnt malt flavors. Never ashy or stout-y, this is a real porter. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and finish of smoky wood. Overall a really good smoked beer!
