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 is a great smoked porter. beautiful head and a dark brown color and if you can’t taste the smoke flavor, get your taste buds checked!!

Pours a dark chocolate color with a nice tan head. With a strong coffee aroma. Chocolatey/coffee flavor with a hint of smoke. Really surprised I could taste a bit of smoke. Really good beer.

Bomber. Pours black. Aroma of blackberry, smoke, and bitter chocolate. Taste of espresso, resin, caramel and chocolate. Not too bitter on the finish.

This might be my favorite porter. Pours a beautiful dark brown color, almost black. Initially starts off with a nice head, but it does diminish a bit leaving a faint froth on the top, just enough to keep the lace going. Smells of dark roast coffee, smoke (duh!) and dark bakers chocolate. Goes down nice and smooth, very easy to drink. Makes for a perfect rainy day type beer, when it’s cold outside and you wish you were grillin’

chocolate aroma with slight smoke, black beer, brown foam with some lacing, balance of sweet and bitter, chocolate and roasted malt flavor, medium body yet smooth,

Pours an opaque dark brown with an ok head. Has an ever changing character. First sniff reminds me of an English Pale Ale. Next one is mocha with hints of smokiness. Taste is similarly schizophrenic, but in a good way. Plenty of hops with smokiness appearing variably upfront and in the finish. That said, the character is mostly malts. Interesting brew, but a little confusing because it doesn't always taste/smell the same. Soft on the palate.

from tallboy bottle. pours dark, nice thick tan head. smells of roasted malts. light mouth feel but very very flavorful. as expected, same chocolate coffee tones. the smokeyness becomes apparent as it warms. nothing about this beer is execeptional, yet nothing is lacking. perhaps that is what makes it good.

Bottle poured into English pint. Deep mahogany brown w/ some nice ruby red peeks when held to light. Big, 3-finger head that’s fluffy and slightly tan in color. Nice aroma with notes of coffee, leather, sugar cookies, earthy hops, and a touch of smoke. Soft and somewhat thin going down. Taste starts out with a bitter blandness before a wave of smoky roastiness closes it out on the lingering finish. Most porters dont do much for me. Like the smoke, that’s great, but little else going on. Great look and aroma though.

Pours a dark, dark brown with a dense, one-pinkie head. Lace is not spectacular, but acceptable. I smell hops, chocolate, roasted malts, and I sense some alcohol--but with the ABV only 5.9 I wonder why; the aroma is a tiny bit harsh to me. Taste chicory, chocolate, coffee. towards the end, a nice bitterness, then a rush of roasted malt, then a little more bitterness, and then the peat flavor just inches out at the end, just for a second, to say hello. Then after Mr. Peat smoke has said goodbye, the previously generous mouthfeel gets a little thin. Just a little, though. Like many raters here, I wouldn't characterize this as a 'smoked' porter, just a porter, albeit a good one. Another good brew from Stone.

A awesome porter... Not as sweet as most porters, but not very dry either. It has a nice smooth hickory cedar taste. Dark black with a nice mahogony head. One of my favorite porters
