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.

Bottle poured into English pint. Deep mahogany brown w/ some nice ruby red peeks when held to light. Big, 3-finger head thats 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, thats great, but little else going on. Great look and aroma though.

Poured into a pint glass from a bomber. Rich brown with tan head. Coffee/caramel aroma. Very smooth...has a brown ale feel to it.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 29, 2003
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

Nice coffee nose and very slight smoke, rich peated malt flavor absent of the harsh bitterness associated with stouts...thats why I like Porters.

This very dark porter is quite good. Hops are pronounced but not overwhelming. The malt flavor captures a subtle hint of the peat smoke and is rich in flavor. Medium to full in body. An excellent porter.

gotbeach (139) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours black with medium lasting tan head. Contains a slight smokey aroma. Good carb. Coffee, roasted malt, creamy with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable, and great with food.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Nice dark brownish-black color with a cream colored head that held down to the bottom. I think the smoky flavor is the highlight of this beer and its most distinguishing quality - not overpowering though. Tastes and smells of bacon. Semi-creamy mouthfeel that is well balanced between the chocolate malt and hops. Very good brew.

joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours a nearly black ruby color with 1 cm off-white/tan head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and caramel, very slight aroma of smoke. Initial flavor is a little sweet and smoky at the same time. Aftertaste is lasting and dominated by smoke and bitter from coffee or chocolate. Medium bodied, light carbonation, light lacing, and only a hint of alcohol detected. Very drinkable, as both a good porter and smoky beer.
