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.

Had aromas of burnt wood, roasted barley and a hint of chocolate. Dark body with tan head. Flavor was well balanced with malt covering up the alcohol for a roasty flavor. Left an aftertaste like if you had an unlit cigar in your mouth for awhile. Real good beer.

On tap at The Moan and Dove. Pours a dark brown color with a small light brown head. Very appealing aroma of smoked and roasted malt with chocolate. Very good flavor of roasted and smoked malt, chocolate and black liquorice. The palate is medium and dry with moderate carbonation.

IslandHaole (1274) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle: Motor oil brown with scant beige head. Semi-sweet chocolate, roasty, earthy, port, very mild smoke, need to focus to pick it up. Again the semi-sweet chocolate up front with a tangy bite in the middle (could be the peat/smoke) sweet follow with a tart-bitter aftertaste.

blankboy (7714) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev & jerc. Pours ruby-black with a long lasting light brown head. Fantastic aroma and flavour of smoke, coffee, chocolate, cereal, roasted malts and a nice amount of hops. The smoke is nicely balanced and subtle which is how I like it. Palate is bitter, full-bodied and long lasting. A great porter, Stone delivers the goods once again.

jercraigs (10591) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2009 2009-12-05. Black body, creamy tan head and lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, light smoky roast malt. Flavour is similar, light smoky roast is even less than the bottle, which I like. Pleasant base malt. Smooth average palate is pleasant. Enjoyable. 7/3+/7+/3/15 - 3.5 Cask at Coles, Buffalo

2005. Ruby black body, good sized khaki head. Mild roasty malt aroma. Smoke is pleasantly restrained over the malt in both the aroma and flavour. Fairly sweet malt with some hops underneath appearing out of nowhere in the finish, reminding you that Stone did in fact make this. Average palate. Surprisingly good. 7/4/7/3/13 - 3.4

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Bottle (650ml) shared with blankboy, jerc, tupalev & gregclow - courtesy of gregclow(?). My 100th rating! Poured a beautiful, dark ruby-black - average light-brown head with excellently sculpted lacing. I sniffed for quite a while - lovely - smokey, creamy, strong coffee, medium hoppy bitterness, burned malts and toffees, and of course semi-sweet chocolate - also sweet doughy yeast. Flavour is very bitter (baker’s chocolate?), chewing tobacco, salty, light hardwood campfire notes - fairly long and dry on the tongue. Surprisingly quick finish off the palate, darkly malty and hop-bitter, oak charcoal left on tongue. A keeper.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2005
Bottle. Pitch black, with some slight red hues when held to the light. Very small tan head. Mostly roasted barley in the aroma, but a slight hint of smoke (overall though, the aroma is only fair and not the highlight of this beer). A very full-bodied and extremely flavourful porter - I say full bodied yet it retains its porter sensibilities (slightly thin, a hint of sweet and sourness). Tons of roasted flavours, some chocolate. No smoke to report until you’ve finished your sip and let it linger - then, there certainly is a hint of smokiness, which is just perfect. Maybe just a tad watery. A fantastic porter, this would be a session brew of mine if I could find it regularly. Proves that Stone doesn’t need to be in your face to make a great beer.

Dark and rich in appearance. Initial smokey flavor although no smokey after taste. I hoped the beer had more of a coffee overtone but alas it didn’t.

CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2005
On tap at Moan and Dove. This extremely smooth brew went down nicely even in the 85 degree heat. Enough has been written about this beer; it’s a porter and it’s good. Drink it.

dwyerpg (6217) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Smells a little smoky, tastes quite strongly of smokiness (despite their claim). Small amount of head. This is really pretty good. Smoky and fullfilling, just not as challengin gas other smoked porters.
