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 I’ve 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, it’s 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 Stone’s stuff, but I just couldn’t 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.

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.

Bottle pour, tan foamy head, nice red/brown hues, very appealing. Balanced aromas of mild smoked grains, some cherry and tootsie roll. Was expecting more chocolate, tobacco and coffee. Most porter styles tend to be consistently prominent in those three aromas, but this one was not. Body was on the thin side, easily drinkable, not much carbonation. Tastes leaned toward sweet, with a bit more hops presence than other porters. I would have to rate this as a "light" porter overall. Certainly a good quality brew, but just lacking the usual brawn of most porters.

Bottle. Chocolate, earthy/peaty, dark fruit aroma. Black brown with a small tan head. Earthy smoky malt, sweet chocolate, and coffee flavor with an acrid bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Smoked beers are my favorite - I went into this one with high expectations and was disappointed by it’s averageness.
