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.

wow! poured a dark dark brown color almost black with a little red twinge. a tan head that faded a bit to fast for me. The aroma was mixed iwht smoke, chololate, malts, and caramel notes. The taste was a mix of chocolate hops, and smoke. Very rich and hearty. One of the best beers i have ever had

Very nice beer. Dark and rich, looks and tastes like a Murphy’s with a hint of smokiness and a few other flavors. Not bitter at all.

From the "1 Pt. 6 Fl. Oz" bottle - Pours a thick black brew possessing a fine, lingering tan head and the rich arona of caramel, cocoa, and bananas! The taste is a rich, malty one with peaty overtones and a sharp finish - I really like this beer!

At the stone brewery on tap. Pours blank with long lasting tan head. Aroma of smoke with burnt coffee and chocolate. A subtle bitterness throughout No smoke flavor with hints of coffee. High carbonation.

Pours a lovely head. Smokey chocolate aroma. Perfect amount of smokiness (I hate beers that taste like bacon). One of their best offerings!

You can certainly smell this one from several feet away. The aroma is mouthwateringly perfect with strong milk chocolate, black liquorice, dark fruit, fresh brewed coffee, and slight caramel. Pours a dark brown with a nice two finger tan head. Taste is bold and deep, with dark chocolate, black liquorice, strong roasted malts, and a very nice dark fruit finish. There is a definite smokey taste and aroma. But unlike most other smoked beers, it’s not upfront or overpowering. Very nice, creamy palate that is balanced perfectly. Overall I would have to say this is the gold standard for smoked porters. Absolutely one of the best porters on the market!

Wow. Tasted this along with Arrogant Bastard, Ruination IPA, and Imperial Stout, and finished off with 3Floyds Dark Lord. This was right in there with the best. Pours black with a deep tan frothy head. The aroma was inviting, full of chocolate and coffee malt with an ever so subtle smokiness. The flavor was fantastic, carrying the coffee and chocolate and the subtle smoke to make for a great drink. Beautiful.
