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.

Bottled. This porter pours black with a large fizzy light-brown head. The aroma is malty with only a slight hint of roast and chocolate. Its heavy and the taste is dominated by a dry roasty coffee flavor.

I was expecting more. The head was long lasting and cream colored, quite thick. The color dark and opaque. The initial flavor was that of the hops, very notable, much like in everything Stone produces, however the malts I felt were completly overshadowed by the hops. I dont really see a reason to go back to this one.

Opaque black colour, tan head. Very smoky aroma. Even smokier flavour with a kick of alcohol. Very minor malts.

(Bottle) Pours dark brown, no head. Burned wood aroma with hints of allmond and some hops and malt. Gluish. Clean, light smokey flavour with some wet stone. Milk chocolate ice cream. Porter-ish sweet. Small to medium body.

Black pour with a big tan head. Smell is slightly sweet roasty malt and chocolate with a medium level of smokiness reminiscent of smoked meat. Decent mouthfeel, but a bit thin. Smokiness is more subtle than the Aecht schlenkerla beers, but still very much there. Flavor overall aside from smokiness is a bit thin and watery. A bit underwhelming, although not a bad beer. Wouldnt buy again though.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 19, 2007
22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a big tan head. Has a chocolate malt smell with an essence of smoke. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Taste is of chocolate malts with a very slight smoked quality. Finishes super smooth. Not much smoked flavor here, I was expecting more than was found. Still a pretty decent porter. Oct 2004

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2007
I thought this was a decent tasting beer and a good porter, but pretty marginal in its smoked component compared to other smoked porters Ive had (Alaskan) or rachbiers. This beer poured a slightly thick black, with a pretty abundant off-white head. Aroma was pretty minimal, but offered up some nice chocolate malt (burned pizza crust) roastiness. Flavor was decently roasty, but not very smokey to my palate (although other folks I split the bottle with disagreed). Mouthfeel was unremarkable. Not a bad beer, but I wasnt hugely impressed by it. Definitely recommended though.

A bit chalky for my taste, and little to no smoke. Could have been sweeter, too. Otherwise, an okay porter from a really good brewing company

The best parts the appearance - its rather beautiful. The consistency and mouth-feel are also nice, but I find the flavor pretty dull. Dark, smoky, dry: Its all that, yes... but not strikingly tasty. Extra credit for being from my hometown of San Diego, though. :)
