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.

Re-Rate 01/05/02: Deep dark brown, generous beige head and sheets of lace. Nose is malt, lightly smoked, caramel, and the front begins sweet, the top is full, the finish is dry, acidic, nicely hopped and the abv warms the ’Belly’. My favorite of all the smoked beers, and ranks in the top 5 on my master list of porters.

Re-Rate 09/30/02: As deep as garnet gets, before we call it brown, the head is ’Chocolate’, frothy, long lasting, the lace clings in thick sheets till the very bottom of the glass. Nose is deep malt, lightly smoked, sweet, caramel, and even a hint of coffee. Front is sweet malt, the top is medium to full, the finish is of course ’Smokey’, nicely hopped, light to moderate carbonation, dry, and a nice long lasting bitter after taste. Call me a ’Stone-o-phile’, but I like the over the top hops, high abv’s, big malts and that robustness, only found in a few brewers beers, such as ’Alesmith’. Ranks #39 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Another great beer from the stoners. I never knew porter could be smoked, but a brewery named stone could probably do it.

Dark, rich, creamy, these are all good characteristics of this beer. This bark brown colored brew with a brownish head has lot of complexities in it’s smell. But thr taste is where I found myself being amazed, the malt and hops blend, the smoky after taste and the hint of toffee and chocolate make this a good smoked porter.

smoky with hints of peat and pork. Also has nice chocolate notes. Possibly equal to Alaskan.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2004 Great brew. Pours a lovely black hue witha nice toasty brown head. Smells like a chocolate bar. Really it smelled so creamy and smooth I couldn’t believe it. Tastes just as chocolatey. Hops prevent the beer from flattening out on the palate. They keep things perked up. Nice balance between the malt and hops. Both are totally in your face. The smoke is an excellent part of this brew. Not too heavy not non existant. Smooth and drinkable. I could drink 400 of these. grat

See, this is where uncomprising craftmanship gets you. Supoib beer, as usual, from Stone. Porter-like sweetness with stouty roastiness. I’ve got a thing for Porters lately, what with 3 Floyd’s Alpha Klaus garnering a rare 5/5. So I was in the mood. Plus my pro-Stone biases are showing through. All my numbers here are biased, but this sheeit is still really damn good. Truly perfect mouthfeel, I mean that. Crisp and throaty, and mouth-roofy. Full and chewy. Roasty aroma is lovely but not intense. Only gets better as you gulf this stuff down and get more loaded; Stone knows what it’s doing with these 22-oz thingys. Even better than that Riesling I had last night. Standout beer. Remarkable. Alas, Charlize Theron isn’t available for boinking. But as some consolation, at least Stone Smoked Porter is available for drinking.

This might be my favorite porter. Pours a beautiful dark brown color, almost black. Initially starts off with a nice head, but it does diminish a bit leaving a faint froth on the top, just enough to keep the lace going. Smells of dark roast coffee, smoke (duh!) and dark bakers chocolate. Goes down nice and smooth, very easy to drink. Makes for a perfect rainy day type beer, when it’s cold outside and you wish you were grillin’
