look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark, mostly opaque brown with a tinge of amber somewhere in there. Thin head that shrinks into a thin layer but lingers.
S: Smoke, malt, slight chocolate and coffee notes.
T: A truly smokey porter. In an odd way, this reminds me of Bruichladdich's single malt "The Rocks," which is an unpeated Islay. I've had so many porters and expected rich chocolate and coffee that when I got this and tasted mostly smoke, it was like drinking an Islay without peat (which ironically would make it smokey). Chocolate and coffee are here, but definitely subdued. There's some mahogany lingering in there, too. The bottles recommends pairing it with BBQ'd meats. I concur, wholeheartedly.
M: Smooth, moderate carbonation, lingers on the tongue.
O: Pretty good. I've had a lot of the Stone beers in different setting that just aren't appropriate for reviewing. This is my first time really sitting down with the Smoked Porter and I'm pretty pleased with it. Not something I'll go for every time I'm at the bottle shop, but I can't think of many better beers for Fall grilling when there's a slight briskness in the air and a good football game on the tube.

3.7/5  rDev -8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Drank 7.19.14, on-tap at Drop Off Service in the East Village.

A: Dark mahogany brown, with a deep red highlights. Thick and creamy one finger head, dark tan in color, fades to a moderate cap. Nice pitting, leaves tons of lace throughout the entire glass.

S: Roasted malt, with undertones of smoke and chocolate/caramel. Fairly hoppy and bitter for a porter, but it works reasonably well.

T: Roasted dark malt dominates, subtle dark fruit flavors, and a lingering smoke flavor. Was really expecting a deeper, more complex taste.

M:Moderate carbonation, fairly thin for a bigger porter (was expecting something more from Stone). Smooth up front, smooth in the middle, and a bitter finish.

O: As a porter alone, it is fine enough...tasty in its own right, but not something I would reach for over Founders/Great Lakes/Deschutes. As a "smoked" porter? I am left underwhelmed. I would have assumed the smoke would be much more robust and ingrained.

Serving type: on-tap
