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.

Kauge (1879) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. BB 27.06.2016. Pours dark brown with beige head. Good retention. Aromas smoky indeed but luckily not in a greasy ham kinda way but very mellow and mixes well with the chocolaty and caramelly sweet and cold coffee. Tastes pretty sweet, chocolate and perhaps bits of caramel plus creamy, lactic notes. Astringent bitter burn in the finish. Lots of development as it warms - more subtle nuances come to the fore like vanilla, cocoa and even tart red berries. Crisp carbonation, low mediumish body and dryish ashy on the palate. Good.

Zgpt (43) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours black with nice tan head. Not a strong smell. Taste is rich but slightly tangy with a strong finish of smoke which I love. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

romankosecki (18) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
[tap in Jabeerwockie, Warsaw]
Appereance Dark brown with nice foam (small and average bubbles). Head didnt 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 - Im 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...
Overall
At first sip I thought it was mild ale. Thin, light and flat. Hardly noticable smoked notes, too weak. Very poor beer, unfortunately...
