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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 Bottle. Poured a dark muddy black with dark ruby red highlights beaming around the edges of the glass. It had an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that lasted a nice while, leaving a layer of foam floating on top of the brew which resulted some excellent lacing. The aroma was was bold to say the least. It had a strong scent of roasted caramel malts, a leathery yeast with a subtle smokey odor and had notes of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of raisons. It tasted wonderfully lightly bitter-sweet with nice notes of dark chocolate, caramel and dried fruit in the beginning then became a tad more on the bitter coffee side and had a mild smokey finish that was left lingering on the palate for a really nice long time. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body (I am leaning more towards full) and smooth and creamy in texture with a nice light soft carbonation. Overall this was an awesome brew. I am always a little leary about smoked beers but the flavors in this one melded so well together that it left me wanting more.

One of my go to favorites, a full on porter, strong character with notes of chocolate and just a touch of smoke. A dear, dark friend.

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. BBE date Sept 2011; Drank Aug 2011 - Black in colour with Deep Mahogany/Ruby tints. Moderately Malty; peat smoked malts, roasty, lots of coffee, some chocolate, caramel. Fruity; dark fruits. Hoppy; some balancing hop bitterness. The "smoke" is much subtler than a rauchbier; rather understated. Roast malty throughout with light smokiness. Good, but not as great as I hoped or expected.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2016
Bomber. 2012 vintage. Big chocolate nose, with lots of dark fruit, a bit of coffee.... but no real smoke. Thick dark brown color (near black), and a 2cm. dark tan head. Thin chocolatey initial flavor, maybe milk sugar. The lightly smoked malt ramps up in mid palate, with some dark fruitiness, bit of licorice, and gentle bitterness. Finish is moderately dry. Medium body. Very mild smoke (in flavor only), which could be due to the age. Overall, not as aggressive as Id expected. But also feels a little boozier than 5.9%. Well balanced and tasty. Surprisingly good after four-five years in the bottle.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is a near pitch black pour with a medium sized tan head. the aroma is a nice blend of smoke, malt and cocoa. The taste is malt driven with some smoke. An outstanding beer.

jbruner (4564) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of mild smoke, earth, tobacco, and roast. Taste is smokier than the nose, roast takes a back seat. Really solid, but the vanilla is better.

Very fine Porter. Highly drinkable with well hidden alcohol. Not so intensive in case of taste and aroma which are mostly roasted malts.
