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.

This stuff is awesome. Pours deep and dark with a dark tan, very foamy head. Roasty chocolate and coffee aroma (naturally) with a very slight smokiness. Excellent hop and malt balance. Very flavorful with chocolate and coffee, but not too much of either one. Well blended. Great palate and mouthfeel, very smooth with a little sweetness. The smokiness is very subtle and discrete. A must try!

It was pretty good beer actually, not as strong of a smoke flavor as some of the other smoked porters Ive had, but enough to be recognizable, and enough to be pretty good. Ill call it "smoked porter light."

Good porter. Not really expected from Stone. Had it on tap at Half-Time. Good mocha, roasted aroma. Pours a deep black color with a medium tan head. A truely Smokey, mocha flavor. Good porter from Stone.

My first Stone brew. Sweet! Pours black with a thick tan head. The nose on this isnt quite what I thought it would be as it was quite subtle with notes of toasted malts, coffee and raisins.The flavour however was rich, deep and mouthfilling. I detected raisins, coffee, toasted malts and a soft corbonation to allow the favours to come forth, nice lingering finish. I look forward to my other Stone brews. Thanks to my buddy Aaron for getting me this.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Surprisingly slight aroma, just a touch of woody smoke and notes of cocoa, roasty malt and toffee. Deep brown-black color, mahogany highlights with a rather slight head. Flavor is roasty to start, the middle seeing a dose of chocolatey sweetness, and with a very mildly bitter, toasty, coffeeish finish. Medium bodied, palate is creamy, effervescent. Tasty Porter rendition, not so smoky ultimately. Thanks to Falconseye8 for the bottle.

If Stone breweries were a woman shed be named Babraham Lincoln:) Imperial Russian was terrific, so is Smoked Porter. Bigger assortment of flavors and not quite as potent. Chocolate. Roasted, smoked hoppy flavors. Undertones are a wee bit citrusy. Most likely a grapefruit. The guys at Stone are Grand Masters at their craft. Great beer is not achieved by circumstance. These guys have done their homework and are fantastic. This bottle is every bit as good as the previous Imp. Russian Stout. I keep saying, many of you have had this, the rest, are really really missing out on terrific beer.

Bottle - in my bottle the aroma is a bit odd. It had some smoke, but somehow a soapiness came through. An attractive appearance. Deep brown with a tightly bubbled beige head. Lacing was excellent. Soft on the palate. More roasty than smoky. Its a good beer, but not quite what is implied by the name.
