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.

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.

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.

Pours a dark ruby brown. Thick beige head. Decent retention and lacing. Aroma is toffee and smoke. Flavor is coffee and tannins. Smoke flavor is muted and really only show up in finish. Slightly thin, fizzy mouthfeel and offputting metallic feel in the back of the throat. I like this style, and I like most of Stoneís stuff, but I just couldnít get into this one for some reason.

Good porter. Really good porter. Not a really good "smoked" porter. The smoke flavor was lost. you could smell the smokiness but had to really search for it in the taste.

I love Islay scotches, so I had to try this one. Smokey on the nose, but I didnít taste it. I wanted this to be a bit smokier than it was. I liked this, but it wasnít as memorable as I thought it was going to be.

Pours black. Sweet apetizing aroma. Taste is heavy smoke and dark malt. Little to mild sweetness notes come through during initial taste. Body is heavy and flemmy. Lots of smokiness though is this guys redeeming quality.

Poured from a 22oz into a tullip glass. Pours a nice dark color with a tan head that lasts a while and leaves great lacing. Aroma of chocolate, creamy, roasted malt, seems a little light on aroma but a good one overall, no smoke noted. Flavor is full of body, chocolate, better through and through, I think i can taste the smoke. A nice dry bitter finish. Nice fully body overall. A decent beer, not sure If I would by it again though, looking forward to trying the vanilla and chipotle versions.
