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.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 Bottle. Poured a dark muddy black with dark ruby red highlights beaming around the edges of the glass. It had an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that lasted a nice while, leaving a layer of foam floating on top of the brew which resulted some excellent lacing. The aroma was was bold to say the least. It had a strong scent of roasted caramel malts, a leathery yeast with a subtle smokey odor and had notes of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of raisons. It tasted wonderfully lightly bitter-sweet with nice notes of dark chocolate, caramel and dried fruit in the beginning then became a tad more on the bitter coffee side and had a mild smokey finish that was left lingering on the palate for a really nice long time. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body (I am leaning more towards full) and smooth and creamy in texture with a nice light soft carbonation. Overall this was an awesome brew. I am always a little leary about smoked beers but the flavors in this one melded so well together that it left me wanting more.

Bahumat (132) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Overhopped, bitter, somewhat rancid. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle, because I cannot fathom how this beer is enjoying such a high overall rating on Ratebeer. Yuck. Almost a pour-out. Tastes like someone dropped a cigarette butt in a bottle of Big Rock Traditional Ale.

PhilJackson80 (492) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2015
22 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/4/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. This had a pretty mild smoked element to it & was pretty well balanced with the chocolate & Mike bitterness. Pretty nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, finally getting a chance at this. We get most of the flavored varieties here, but never the plain?! Anyway, deep brown beer, decent almond colored head, good lacing. Aroma dried plum, coffe, smoke, toasted barley. Taste is toasted barley, faint fruit, coffee. Palate a bit light, carbonation a bit sharp, for style. I like the hops at the finish, this is almost dry.

Incredible deal and wonderful aroma and taste of coffee and chocolate. Good and quite as heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Exquisite beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
