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.

Dark pour with a ruby red tinge and a medium roasted tan head. Big, dark chocolatey aroma with a hint of pepperminty coffee. Light, almost creamy texture with a lot of roasted malts and just a hint of smokiness. Surprisingly thin and easy drinking. The smoky elements are most noticable on the final smack, which brings back horrible memories of Marlboro Lights. Flavors are initially tasty, but not complex enough to warrant outstanding scores from me, and the finish is kind of killer. There isnít much more than the commercial description reveals.

pours black and muddy good light brown head. Aroma is lightly toasted malts, moderate pine and grapefruit esters. Flavor is moderatly bitter which seems out of character for this style, ends with a long bitter finish. Light to medium bodied mouth feel was dissapointing, watery and lively carbonates. Too hoppy and fizzy for style, Grapefruit hoppiness a bit much.

10-16-07 bottle. Ink black with great head and lacing. Smells of smoked ham and jerky - not as strong as some smoked beers - but is there nonetheless. I have trouble with liquids that smell or taste like meat - call me crazy. Overly smoked taste for my liking. However, the mouthfeel is great. Maybe someday I will be able to appreciate that smoked smell and taste - but today is just not that day.

Not that great. Surprisingly light bodied and weak. Some sweetness and smoke to it. Roasted malt flavor as well. Watery, sweet finish.

Easily the meh-est smoked anything Iíve tasted. Very boring aroma, and only slightly smoky. Flavor was barely smoky at all. Hopefully got a poor one, and spent way too much on it : (

Overall a nice smokey flavor not too overpowering. A little weak on the palate kind of watery. If you like bbq you will love this beer. Enjoy with food cause it needs some bread or crackers.

DigitalMan (193) - Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2009
Tried this in the past and seem to recall enjoying it more, not sure quite why. As advertised, itís chocolaty and slightly smoky. Seems to have a thick, sticky mouthfeel and is a bit weak. (Of course, my palate has already been violated by a Ruination, so that might be affecting my rating.)

It poured a dark liquid with a small foam that left no lacing. It smelled sweet with chocolate, smoke and coffey. It tasted similar. Felt ok but not spectacular.
