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.

hayden1215 (319) - Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Black in color with a fothy brown head. Aroma is malt, smoke, and chocolate. Flavor is slightly sweet with notes of smoke and hops. Finish is smooth. Excellent. The smoke does not overpower this brew.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2004
A nice but not spectacular looking porter with a fairly clear dark brown color and large light tan head. Nose is mostly roasted malt and chocolate...not much of the smoke apparent, as of yet. The smokiness is much more apparent in the flavor, and balances nicely with the roasted flavors. Also has a very dry flavor. Overall, a nice beer, and my first smoked porter.

This is probably my favoirte of the Stone line. Off white head atop a nice, deep brown body. The aroma of roasted malts and chocolate is wonderful and the taste is even better. Very smooth at first with a nice punch of "Arrogance" at the finish. A wonderful winter brew.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2003
UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Very dark brown almost black with a deep beige head. Aroma is or roasted malts with some hops. Flavor is slighty roasty, slightly smokey, and moderatly hoppy. Towards the end and in the bakc of the mouth, the smoke becomes more noticeable. Good woody dry, burnt smokiness without the smoked meatiness of the german smoked beers. Nice mouthfeel and body.

Beaver (1746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
The Smoked Porter poured a dark black with a semi-creamy tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Suprisingly, there was not much of an aroma to this beer just a slight malt smell. I wasn't very impressed with the taste either. It had a very bitter, hoppy finish for a porter. As it warmed a roasted malty start became more pronounced. I was expecting a lot from this beer and was pretty disappointed. It wasn't bad, but it was nowhere near what I though it would be. I didn't notice any smokiness in the nose or taste either.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Black body, ruby edges, and fading beige head. Roasty aroma with some char/smoke but not heavy. Elements of charred wood in the flavor plus some medium bitterness. Body feels flimsy. Good, but not on my list of favorites from Stone.

(Bottle) Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a thick tan head. I typically do not care much for smoked beers, but this one had great character and flavor.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 16, 2003
A nice opaque color with hints of smoke and chocolate. However, there has always been some kind of conflict in the aftertaste on this beer. Its too funky and subtle. A very nice smoked porter, but average at best for the style. The 6th Anniversary blows this away. Not heavy enough.

Cobra (1100) - - DEC 16, 2003
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Purchased from Norm's in Vienna, Va. for $5.99 each. Poured out about as you'd expect. Rich dark chocolate brown, with red highlights. It has a huge tan head at first, and it slowly faded back to a thick, chewy lacing on top of the beer. Aromas are of sweet molasses, chewy caramel malts, dark roast coffee, and slight smokiness in the background. Tastes are of french roasted coffee, sweet molasses, burnt malts, and smoky oak barrels. Dry & slightly astringent on the tongue. Medium mouthfeel, slightly chewy, but not overly so. Very strong smoke taste in the aftertaste. Slight hops bitterness make a brief appearance, only to vanish in thin air & become overwhelmed by the smokiness of the beer. A decent effort from Stone.
