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 as shown. Pours a very dark brown with a medium light tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong roasted malt and dark chocolate. The taste is a rich roated coffee with the smoke coming out in the finish. Easy to drink, a great porter from Stone.

22-oz bottle. Pours black with brown hints and a medium frothy tan head; lined lacing. Smoked dark roasted malt aroma, some chocolate notes, but not much going on here. Heavy bitter start with smoked dark roasted malt and chocolate with an acidic light finish. Full bodied and dark fizzy palate.

Bottle. [thank you sk8viking].
2006 vintage.
Pours blackish with a clear red-ness around the edges. A small creamy dark beige head settles nicely on top, before quickly becoming a thin film. Aroma is quite sweet, with a clear smoky edge. There are roasted caramel, a little coffee, some distant cherries as well. Quite high carbonation, making the beer relatively fresh. Flavour is great! There is some mild roasted tones, a good deal of chocolate, and only after a little while, the smokyness hits me - slow-burning. A nice well-rounded bitterness rounds it up nicely. A really great brew!

Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2003 Another great beer from Stone. This one is not as edgy as Arrogant Bastard but still unique. Very dark color with a thin and lasting beige head. The aroma is smokey of course. Medium body, and the smoked flavor was not overpowering and complemented the malt perfectly. Slight bitter chocolate in the aftertaste. Well done.

crossovert (11796) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
650ml bottle. It pours a nice dark brown with some reddish hues, the head is thick and foamy. The head is slightly tan. It holds for a bit then recedes to some pretty nice lacing. It smells like an IPA with some brown sugar thrown in, Stone loves their hops huh. There is a hint of roastiness but much less than expected. The flavor isnt hoppy bitter, but it has a considerable amount of hop flavor. There is also a hint of smokiness and some caramel sweetness. It is a bit mixed up but overall it is a decent brew.

Rune (11641) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2010
Big bottle shared with OleR at Hndverkerstuene. Devil black body tinged with a brownish shade. Silky surface with a few dimples. Smell of earthy malts and candy sweetness. Smoked accented flavour, well integrated with the sweetness and dryness of chocolate malts. Bitter undertones towards the finish. Nice mouthfeeling and quite well bodied (Oslo, 19.03.2010).
