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.

mezr (125) - California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Poured from a 22 oz bottle purchased at Stone Brewing Co. Very dark brown/black with a rich tan head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, roasted coffee, and very light smoke. Very enjoyable to drink. Slightly sweet, and very light bitter finish. Very nice lacing, more sticky than expected.

mieszal92 (185) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Draught. Dark brown with ruby reflections, with lovely beige head, lacing. Nose is, fuck, caramel, highly roast, toasted nuts, sweetness, cant find this smoke, we do it much better in Poland. Mouth: dominated with dried red fruits (cherry, prune, with prune in the foreground), not too intense. Sweet, quite low bitterness, weak roast, moderate body. Too watery, very low co2. Overall: not any masterpiece, can be. Proves no sense in drinking simple porters while you have baltic porter next to. This beer doesnt know what real smoke is.

oberschlesier (26) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - MAY 12, 2017
Aroma - ripe apple (it is definitely different than in cider, more pleasant) and very, very delicate aroma of smoke. So delicate that it s almost imperceptible. Beer is a little watery imo, but - at all - it may be good as a session beer.

Cybuch (301) - Muszyna, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
W aromacie początkowo bardzo lekka wędzoność, lecz przypisałem to niskiej temperaturze, jednak taka już pozostała, opis piwa mwi o niej całą prawdę. Generalnie dosyć intensywny, przyjemny. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, piana kiepska, opadająca. W smaku wędzoność już jest intensywniejsza, piwo jest wytrawne, kawowe, umiarkowanie palone. Goryczka niska do średniej ,wysycenie w normie. Fajny klasyczny porter muśnięty wędzonką, jak dal mnie mogliby z tym pjść na całość, po piwo trochę bez charakteru.

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 (3041) - 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 (3816) - 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.

ordybill (1707) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2016
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 (4630) - 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.
