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.

The malts and hops are both delicate and light. Taste of light body coffee with a touch of a smoked chocolate. This is much milder in taste than in aroma. Would work in harmony with grilled fish. Enjoyed from a snifter.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2008
22oz bottle, purchased somewhere in Boston for $5. Consumed during the month of its best before date. Pours very dark with minimal head. Nice lacing though. All malt aroma of medium strength. The first sip gives an initial peppery sensation. The peppery sensation remains throughout. Nice malty flavours, with some coffee tastes thrown in the mix.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 The aroma is of chocolate, dried apples, beech wood, faint sulphur, coffee, seaweed, sugar and spciy/herbal hops. Smooth taste with a lot raisins and beech wood showing up. Sweet. Very faintly smoky. Decent bitterness. Poor lacework. Some seaweed sneaking in. Pleasant. A bit sour. Medium bodied. Residual sugars, beech wood and caramel in the finish. A bit dissapointing. Thanks a lot nearbeer!

That1Guy (1991) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra. Little transparent. Definitely not dark enough. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Strange that it’s smoked, because the smokiness is subdued. Most smoked I look for bacon flavor. Not here, but it’s also pretty damn good, so I can’t hold that against it too much.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle Pours a deep almost black with a big tan creamy head. The head lasts pretty well. Has a very subtle aroma of caramel, and a smokey burntness. Has a slightly mustiness about it. Has a very mild taste. Definetly can feel the smoked part. Nice mouthfeel , low carbination and a touch watery. Blending is fairly good. Lacks some depth but is a pretty good beer.
