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.

Incredible deal and wonderful aroma and taste of coffee and chocolate. Good and quite as heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Exquisite beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

RumRunner101 (839) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Dark pour with tan head. Aromas of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate, spruce. Well balanced between smoke, roasted malts, and a sprucey bitter finish. Good.

From bottle to tulip. Aroma of restrained chocolate and coffee. Moderate cedar. Pours brown with ruby highlights. Light brown head sustains around the outside with large bubbles. Very limited lacing. Taste is moderate high peaty, which predominates over the other flavors. Moderate low biscuit, and slight semi-sweet chocolate. Moderate high bitterness.

Couleur brune foncés translucide avec un col beige moyennement résistant. Aromes de caramel, café, chocolat, un petit coté fumé. Rien d’extraordinaire pour moi...

Bottle at home split with Sarah. Aroma is woody, ranch malts, bit of wet socks, charred wood and some caramel sweetness. There is some refried bean thing on the nose as well. Dark copper / mahogany brown coloured pour with a lasting frothy light cream coloured head. Flavour is composed of charred wood, roast, some lactose sugars, ashy roast, earthy smoke. Some little dried fruit and subdued smoke character. Palate is medium bodied, slightly creamy, milky on the tongue, highish carbonation. Decent smoked beer.

Old rating on 22oz bomber. Pours a deep dark brown with ruby highlights and a quickly dissipating tan head. Molasses, brown sugar and roasted grain aromas present with a hint of smokiness on the nose. Nice carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Solid porter but the smokiness is also muted on the palate. Good finish.

Poured from 22oz bottle into tulip. Aroma is hoppy at first, then smoked malt, maybe a little earthiness. Beer is dark brown in color with a tan head which dissipates quickly leaving a fair amount of lacing. Taste is lightly sweet to a lightly bitter finish. Medium body with a slightly oily texture. Carbonation is average. Overall good beer Good example of a smoked porter. Only paid $5.50 for 22oz bottle. Most other brews in 22oz on shelf were averaging $9.99 some as high as $14.99. For $5.50 it was well worth it, I will buy again at some point.

Perfect smoke porter, great thing is that this porter does not have the mesquite phenolics most smoke brews do. Great smoky roast aroma, nice body but nit stout like, clean clean finish. Great beer.
