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.

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.

Dark, dark ruby color. Appears black at first. Nice easy pour produces a frickin’ huge head of dense tan foam, which has hellish retention. Will it ever go away? Wow. Impressive for sure, but almost too much. Lacing is nice and sticky. Big chocolatey malts. A touch of smoke. Light hint of some hop spiciness. Hints of caramel and dark fruits. Big earthiness quality. A fairly complex nose. Big flavor of roasted malt. Underlying hint of smokiness, not nearly as much as I expected. Sweetness of vanilla and caramel. Nice earthy quality here, also. Very slight hops bite. Light chocolate and coffee notes. Hints of dark fruits. Good solid medium boby. Good level of creaminess. This is an excellent porter, overall. I would drink many of these, and often, if given the opportunity. Not as smoky as may have been expected, but a very good offering from Stone, nonetheless.

I lived in San Diego 15 years ago- BEFORE the county became renown as a hot spot in the craft brew community. Man, was I suprised by this offering from Stone Brewing. I bought a 22oz from BevMo and was blown away by the quality of this porter. The smoke comes through loud and clear, but doesn’t overwhelm the chocolate and coffee notes. I will make it a priority to visit this brewery on my next trip to SD.

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!
