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.

From the tap out of my growler. Pours a near pitch black with a tan head. Smell of sweet chocolate and subtle coffee notes. Taste is very sweet and robust from the chocolate and smokiness. Great malt body that also gives it itís sweet body. Good beer.

From the "how have I not already rated this? file. As a rauchbier fan Iíd love to see even more smoke; thereís plenty of chocolate and coffee to keep it from just tasting like smoke.

Originally rated on 9/20/09. Stones smoked porter poured a black body, quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma was rather faint of chocolate, roasted malt, even a little fruit. Mouthfeel was a little thin but o.k. The smoked flavor is nice but goes away rapidly leaving the roasted malt aftertaste.

Deep dark amber, 2 fingers khaki foam. Nose is dark smoked malt. Bittersweet. Middle is charred malt, coffee grounds, molasses, and woody hops. Finish is bittersweet and long, with one last whiff of smoke. Nice.

SG111 (1205) - New York, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours black, nice tan head, pretty lacing. Aroma is smoke, but toned down compared to fresh based on what Iím hearing. Nice sweet chocolate, roasted malt. Wood, and a bit of leather too. Flavor is smokey, oak, decent bit of smoke. Itís non negligible. Itís nice. I think the age has brought out the chocolate. Hard to say for sure without a frame of reference. But very good.
