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.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Dark, dark brown, bordering on black. Light looks red coming through. Tan creamy head that surprisingly doesn't last long. Thick lace on sides of glass that takes a minute to form. Smells of oak woodchips. Tastes like a chocolate malt. Thick, but not syrupy, almost chewy. An excellent porter.

davidCC (130) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Thick smoky porter with a dark black color has a littly bit of a brown color when held up to light. Small amount of brown tan head but it lasts. Flavor is very smokey and very flavorful.

Aesir (130) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 25, 2002
Initially sweet and a little ghosty, that fades into a dry slightly smokey finish. This is a superb beer. A little more smoke flavor would be good, but its hard to complain.

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - MAY 5, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2011 Bomber from BevMo Long Beach. Aroma is full of smoky dark malt with a touch of roasted chocolate at the end. Pours a dark black with a solid off white foam head which lingers and leaves a bubbly lacing. Taste is smoke, coffee, and chocolate with a nice bitter finish courtesy of the hops. Solid carbonation and body to this porter. Overall an amazing porter with a great smoky character.

steeleliver (130) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2012
UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Pitch black color. Couldnt see light through it, just how I like it. Smoked flavor was present but not overwhelming. Accenting the smooth palate. Caramel chocolate smoothness with a masked alcohol content.

On-tap a while back A: Pours a rich mahogany color with a fluffy brown cap. Kind of opaque. Retention is pretty good S: I was expecting more smoke, but nicely balanced - only a hint. I pick up on hops and a big dose of chocolate before the smoke. Big time roast, coffee, and caramel T: Mellow beer. Still not a whole lot of smoke, more chocolaty and hoppy than anything. Balanced. Caramel and an underlying bitterness, nice depth MF/O: Lighter body than I expected, bitterness lingers with chocolate. Overall, pretty drinkable stuff right here

not what I expected from stone. nice soft, rich, chocolatey porter with a touch of smoke. very little bitterness. average thickness for the style. nose isnt very well defined - but it may need to warm up a bit. not in anyway "over the top" like some of other stones brews - easy drinking. well balanced and enjoyable (but Id gladly swap this for a bottle of their russian imperial stout)

tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice withstanding head. Flavor is excellent with malt sweetness, toasted malt, smoked malt, chocolate, and some hop bitterness to back it up. Not overpowering like some other smoke brews. Another fine brew from Stone.

BeerGuyTWMore (128) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Pours a dark brown, nearly black, with off-brown head. Aromas of roasted burnt malts, and chocolate. Flavors included roasted malt(little nutty), strong chocolate with some coffee, finishes with a sweet peaty oak that lingers.
