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.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 The aroma is of chocolate, dried apples, beech wood, faint sulphur, coffee, seaweed, sugar and spciy/herbal hops. Smooth taste with a lot raisins and beech wood showing up. Sweet. Very faintly smoky. Decent bitterness. Poor lacework. Some seaweed sneaking in. Pleasant. A bit sour. Medium bodied. Residual sugars, beech wood and caramel in the finish. A bit dissapointing. Thanks a lot nearbeer!

Crushed with Jakebra. Little transparent. Definitely not dark enough. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Strange that its smoked, because the smokiness is subdued. Most smoked I look for bacon flavor. Not here, but its also pretty damn good, so I cant hold that against it too much.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle Pours a deep almost black with a big tan creamy head. The head lasts pretty well. Has a very subtle aroma of caramel, and a smokey burntness. Has a slightly mustiness about it. Has a very mild taste. Definetly can feel the smoked part. Nice mouthfeel , low carbination and a touch watery. Blending is fairly good. Lacks some depth but is a pretty good beer.

badhack (548) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Black, darker than usual for a porter. Aroma is weak and flavor is like a porter with thin mouthfeel, maybe even dry, and a very strong smoky flavor. This should be had with BBQ. Some chocolate I didnt care for but also cola and a bit of hops to balance but not very bitter. Very malty and a bit of caramel.

davidezdonz (394) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 28, 2015
A 22 fl oz bomber with a bottled on date of 17th July 2015 and an enjoy by date of 14th November 2015. Poured into a Spiegelau stout glass. It poured a dark dark brown colour with a light amber hue and a nice two fingered tan head that dissipates slowly leaving stringy lacing. Aromas are smoky, roasted malts with some light chocolate and cream. Tastes are of roasted malts and bittersweet chocolate. There is also some light smoke which is ashy and hints of licorice and milk coffee. Creamy, smooth, medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. The smoke taste was a bit ashy for me, but otherwise this was a nice smoked porter.
