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.

22 oz. bomber, $5 @ Lemon Tree. Robust. Yep, that’s about the way to describe it. Pours a big, robust deep brown with a big slightly tan head. Nice peat smokiness up front in the nose, and it segues right into the taste. Malts show in a little later; a nice coffee roast that’s still wedged in behind the smoke. Some malt stickiness starts to build on my lip. Taste is nice and rich, but it makes clear the alcohol is no stronger than any mass beer. Nice to sit with at the end of the day, with some sausage or an ice cream dessert. I tried it with a PB&J as suggested on the bottle. That works too, but I wouldn’t serve that at a beer pairing.

romankosecki (14) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
[tap in Jabeerwockie, Warsaw]
Appereance Dark brown with nice foam (small and average bubbles). Head didn’t last too long, it reduced to subtle ring. Nice lacing.
Aroma: flat, a bit sour. Roasty notes: coffee, milk chocolate with a bit of nuts. On third (fourth) plan I feel smoked notes - I’m not really sure, if I make me believe I feel... A little bit honey and sweet red fruits.
Taste aroma was subtle, but taste is even more flat.. Watery, with very delicate roasted hints: coffee, chocolate, wood. Smoked notes near limit of perception, very weak. A little bit of caramel and bread. Pretty dispappointing.
Mouthfeel and bitterness: tart and a little sour. High level of taninns intensifies bitterness, making it sharp and long. Body is flat and thin, watery...
At first sip I thought it was mild ale. Thin, light and flat. Hardly noticable smoked notes, too weak. Very poor beer, unfortunately...

adasko (1522) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 10, 2016
Tap na GBM. Przyzwyczajony do poziomu wędzonki na jaki trafiam w polskich piwach, tutaj się nieco zawiodłem. Rozumiem koncept, że ma to być jedynie dodatek, ale tutaj było to minimalne muśnięcie dla mnie. Brakowało mi tej dymności i w aromacie i w smaku. Przez to też trochę bazowe piwo miało mało charakteru.

Emek (228) - Wroc³aw, POLAND - APR 5, 2016
Tap (BGM4). Bardzo fajny, wędzony porter. Wędzonka niezbyt intensywna, słodowa, piwo ładnie zbalansowane, pijalne i dość lekkie jak na porter.

AleRider78 (450) - - MAR 26, 2016
UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 650ml bottle. Pours a fairly thick frothy creamy brownish head and has a very dark brown appearance with ruby highlights. Lacing is fairly thick and dirty. Aromas of toasted malts, barley, smokey and mild spice notes. Flavours are somewhat sweet at first but has much more smokey notes afterwards. Lots of toasty and roasted malt flavours. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Good retention.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - MAR 26, 2016
5.9%ABV. Porter. Tapped out black. 40ºSRM. Nose has ume, smoked and stout like nose. Nose has oatmeal fullness, raw grain body. Floury. Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is ton of carbonation on this one. Palate has a ton of smoke, like someone poured liquid smoke into the brew. The grain bill is represented in a palate that is sweet, oatmeal thick and with a oatmeal, raw flour body. Smoky bitter with dark chocolate, espresso, black coffee, Finish is clean and dry. Really finishes like a stout with English bitters. The only thing that is a little incongruous is the hoppy bitter finish. Very nice. I like this very much. I’m just not very sure what I had. I was told this was the smoked porter.
