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.

weihenweizen (3602) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Refrigerated bottle set on the counter for a bit. Pours translucent really dark brown with medium brown hightlights and massive fluffy beige head. Some fluffy lacing, medium body, and light roasted malt aroma. Taste is roasted malt, some milk chocolate, some smoke, and bitter hop finish. Pretty easy to drink and one of the best porters I have had.

Sample glass from 650ml bottle. Nice looking pour, pitch black with a caramel head. Aroma was not strong; chocolate, coffee and earthy smoke. Taste is much the same but fuller. Body was medium to heavy. Overall, the smoke in this was more balanced than many rauchbiers, and didn't go fishy or bacony, but I still don't quite get the appeal of adding smokey flavour to beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RexTalionis (3705) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Bottled. Pours dark brown with a frothy tan head. Light tones of smoke, some wood and roasted malt and some chocolate in aroma. Burnt wood, smoke, some sweetness and perhaps even hints of vanilla in taste.

sheep (93) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2012
650ml bottle, no freshness date. Almost pitch black with a bubbly and thick mocha-coloured head that leaves a lacy ring around the edges. Lots of chocolate on the nose, caramel, light vanilla. Taste is full of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a slight hoppy bitterness and a charred, smoky and ashy finish. Palate is creamy and smooth but a little light. Medium carbonation. Pretty nice.

Solid porter. Heavily roasted coffee, light pleasant smoke character, some bitter coffee. Tastes bitter and kinda watery. Thin body, I suppose a porter should be. Looks beautiful - dark brown with a ruby tinge and a light khaki head with fantastic retention and lacing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bomber at home. Toasty, oaky aroma. Beautiful dark mocha color, caramel head, wispy lacing. Taste is light porter goodness. Carb level just right. Nutty aftertaste. Enjoyed.

Pours black. White lacey head. Aroma is faint smoke. Taste is smokey bitterness, followed by faint sweetness. Crisp. Easy drinking. Nice but not outstanding.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown with two fingers tan/light brown head. Settles to thick pillowy cap in minutes. Aroma is mildly smoky, dark malt and roasted malt, definite chocolate, bitter. Flavor is mildly smoky and roasted with significant bitterness. Mildly roasty and chocolate finish with a bitter, mildly fruity finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. A high quality beer but I am a little dissapointed with the flavor, they should have upped the smokiness or at least toned down the bitter a little.

Keg at Euston Tap, 13th March 2013. Good smoked porter, not worthy of the price tag in London though. Still enjoyable and tasty
