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.

Dark with a lot of flavor. Definite coffee, a bit of chocolate. Possible caramel. Surprisingly high carbonation. Excellent beer, overall.

What more can I say, I have not had one beer from Stone that I have not liked and this being a porter with some smokiness to it.. makes it one great beer.

Pitch black with a tan head. Excellent retention and lacing in the glass. Tons of oaky notes on the nose with spicy undertones. The smoke is present, but some coffee and caramel persist as well. Mouth coating and one that I couldn’t put down.

Bottle and Draught. This is one of my favorites. The smokiness is subtle and sits well over the complex balance of hops and roasted malts.

Pours jet black with a thick tan head that quickly dissipates. Smell of smoke but not overwhelming. Tastes of coffee and smoke, with a crisp finish. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown porter with nice off white head. Smell is wonderful smokey malt on the nose with a roasty malts taste with a burnt finish. A true delight! 99

I love this stuff. Not very smoky but I’m never disappointed when I open a bottle.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a very dark brown beer with ruby red highlights. It has chocolate and red fruity flavours, a smoked/roasted body and a spicy red fruit, citrus, chocolate, oak and zesty and fruity finish. Excellent!

1pt 6fl.oz ($4.99) First time trying anything from Stone. pretty good, like the flavor a lot. It really doesn’t taste like anything else and is a great match with BBQ and grilled meats. I liked it and will buy again
