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.

Bomber. Pours a very dark amber with a tick light tan head that laces to the bottom. Light aroma of chocolate, malt and smoke with some earth tones preasent. Flavor is were this beer is at with chocolate, coffee, wood, smoke, and roasted malts balancing from begining to finish. Med body, lively carb, creamy texture, and smooth dry feel. A very fine and interesting porter.

SD trip, sampler: Another solid Stone offering, deep black with red notes and great burnt coffee, chocolate malt nose. Light smoked, alcohol and cask like flavors (this was not a cask-conditioned or wood chip version) in the mix.

A sweet aroma of malt and smoke. Appearance is black with a good tan head. Taste is smoky, chocolate and sweet with a pleasant sweet aftertaste. Palate is moderately thick and coating with noticeable carbination. Overall an excellent porter.

I general havent like Stone in the past (specifically the bastards) but this one is pretty good. It is not boozy and has a nice consistent taste. Nice dark beer with coffee and roasted nut taste with hints of smoke. If you dont like smoked beers you will probably still like this as the smoke is not overpower like Left Hands smoke jumper for example. This has more of just a hint of smoke rather than it overpowering the whole beer.

Natai (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Pours a deep, dark, murky brown with a respectable rocky tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee and a hint of smoked wood. Solid, complex flavor thats just a touch harsh before smoothing out. Creamy body with a nice finish.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Poured from a bottle, lets just say still waiting for the smoked part of the smoked porter. The aroma was sweet, however I am still trying to acclomplish my sense of smell. The appearence was really nice, the lace klinged to the glass like no other. Sorry Stone, right now I have Sam Smith as a benchmark in the porters and you did not beat your benchmark. You missed by a tad (dy porter)

Bottle pour, tan foamy head, nice red/brown hues, very appealing. Balanced aromas of mild smoked grains, some cherry and tootsie roll. Was expecting more chocolate, tobacco and coffee. Most porter styles tend to be consistently prominent in those three aromas, but this one was not. Body was on the thin side, easily drinkable, not much carbonation. Tastes leaned toward sweet, with a bit more hops presence than other porters. I would have to rate this as a "light" porter overall. Certainly a good quality brew, but just lacking the usual brawn of most porters.

A very good tasting beer. Very dark yet not a noticable taste of alcohol. Not too much aftertaste, but plenty of flavor.

Bomber. Pours a deep dark brown, almost black but holding it to a light reveals reddish/brown hues on the edges. Head was medium sized and tan colored that lasted and lasted. Aroma was of chocolate, roasted barley with some caramel/toffee sweetness looming. If there is smoke in the aroma, it is very subtle. Flavor of crystal malt sweetness, toffee, chocolate and roasted barley upfront with maybe a hint of coffee. Develops a subtle smoked malt flavor along with a dry coffee flavor in the finish. Hops play a bittering role in the balance of this beer as I get none in the flavor or aroma. Mouthfeel was full bodied, fuller than most/all porters Ive tried with a silky smooth finish. Excellent beer and though I was expecting more smoke, the beer overall completely makes up for it.
