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.

I have to say that after having an Alaskan Smoked Porter a few weeks ago I am totally let down with this.There was no comparison.This was slighly fragrant of roasted malts but no smokiness at all and the flavor was more like weak porter.

The aroma is about what I expected. It’s smokey, toasty, malty, nutty, and mildly alcoholic. The appearance is red/brown with a nice foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is OK but not as thick as I was hoping for. Overall it’s pretty good for a smoke but I don’t really like it.

the smoke is bold and unpleasnt. a decent porter is behind it but the smokey masks good flavors. i could have skipped this one.

This one is very interesting. Got it on tap at the Yardhouse. Pours jet black(maybe the lighting?), smells of slight fruit and smoke. There was a bit of head forming in mine, lasting until the end. The taste is a bitter one, pre-dominated by fuity/earthy touches. I love Stone brews, and this one is pretty good.

This is a more bitter porter than some. Its not too bitter. Nice flavor found in traditional dark beer. Overall good.

I know I will probably be the only person who gives this a bad rating - but I just did not like it. There is no ’subtle’ about the smoky taste. You could probably duplicate the taste of this beer if you took a drink of any average beer and then licked an ashtray.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2011 On tap at the Bocktown. My very first stone. Pour is nice and dark brown black with a tinge of red in there. Initially has a large tan head that fades to a darkish tan froth. Aroma is less than expected for a smoked brew. It does have some mild roastyness about it but I don’t think it can be called smoked. Hints of hickory smoking. Nice lacing on this stuff. It has some medium bitterness in the back of the throat after you get to know it. That bitterness builds as the drinks continue. Decent, just slightly bellow medium carboatiion. That back of your throat bitterness continues to build with each taste. Not bad for a porter but the smokey bitterness makes this a little more interesting than a straight porter with gentleman manners.

I have a question: where’s the smoke?! Honestly, I detected NO smoke in this beer, and that steams my clams. I mean sure, its a decent porter, but if it advertizes smoke, then by Crom, I want smoke!
