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.

Growler fill at CBX. Pours a dark black with lots of tan head. Nothing overwhelming about the aroma, but a bit of sweet and coffee. Great lacing down the glass as it is being devoured. The boilerplate description of this beer serves it well so I dont have much to add. Some sweet (chocolate) and coffee taste with a subtle hint of smokiness. Nothing overwhelms the other and they are very well balanced into a delicious drink.

Great dark dark color, almost black with creamy head. Aroma of thick malts with plenty of smoke and it tastes just like it smells. Great beer as usual from Stone.

Bold look, sophisticated taste-- this beer understands the dance of malt and bitter in a profound way. The smoke blows a kiss dry chocolate and clean coffee character of this beer. First rate.

1 pint 6 oz bottle. Poured a dark, rich brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma was very rich with hops and smokiness. The taste was incredible, a lot more than I expected, with the smokiness of the malt mixed with chocolate and rich coffee flavors. It was very complex yet it balanced out so well and finished lingering on the tongue. Great sipping beer, loved it.

Excellent brew! From the pour to the last drop, this brew dazzled me. Pours black, with a firm, brown/tan head. The body is beautifully complex and this beer will show you what porters SHOULD taste like! Great beer.

What more can I say, I have not had one beer from Stone that I have not liked and this being a porter with some smokiness to it.. makes it one great beer.

Nice porter. Aroma is dark and smoky. The first sip is chocolate and coffee with slight hints of smoke. Delicious beer. This beer is excellent with bbq steaks and pastas.

22oz bottle. Beautiful black pour with nice creamy head. Great "smokey" malt taste with a big chocolate and dry coffee presence.

Nice creamy tan head. Almost opaque brown, but has these cool red highlights when held up to a light bulb. Faint smoke aroma, with chocolate and malt notes. There is a malt (patent/ roasted) astringency, coupled with some hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is very rich and creamy... chewable stuff. The aftertaste has a few smoke notes, but is still dominated by the dark malts and hops. Not a real rauchbier in my book, but a damn fine porter. I nuked the last part of this beer (oh, the heresy), and it brought out much more of the malt aromas, bready, and maybe some yeast notes. Flavor is much more complex warmed up to about room temp. Heck, maybe I'll turn it into coffee temp. next. Yummy!
