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.

Embrouille (2835) - 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 (2192) - 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.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2009
Pours a little darker than cola. Off white head thins down slightly but stays on the glass until the beer is gone. Citrus hops, roast, and a hint of smoke in the nose. Flavor is complex. It’s got a mild sweetness with roasted malt, a bit of bitterness, a little smoke and alcohol. I would have liked a little more mouthfeel, but this is fine as-is. There’s just enough body to let the flavors linger.

Gusgus (235) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2009
Bottle @ BA Järntorget. Pours reddish brown with thin white head. Looks pretty light and pale. The aroma is small and soft. Vanilla, caramelly and fudgelike. Weak body. Low hops, and leaning on a grainy, caramelly malt base. Almost no smoke flavor. Dry finish.

badhack (518) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Black, darker than usual for a porter. Aroma is weak and flavor is like a porter with thin mouthfeel, maybe even dry, and a very strong smoky flavor. This should be had with BBQ. Some chocolate I didn’t care for but also cola and a bit of hops to balance but not very bitter. Very malty and a bit of caramel.
