A - Dark brown/black with a thin tan head

S - Nice dark chocolate and roasted malt smells.

T - Nice warm roast with some chocolate, and the smokiness helps smooth it out. Definitely not overpowering.

M - Almost silky, very nice

D - Very good for the type, never felt too heavy.

In traditional stone fashion, this is a big beer done a little differently than everyone elses. Overall impression is of their 6th Anniversary Porter with some smoke thrown in to add complexity. Poured a dark brown with red highlights and a creamy light brown head. Bitterness was a little surprising to find, but once you get over the shock, it starts to make sense in the beer. Sweet malt gives way to slightly more than a hint of smoke. Nice medium body.

From notes at Old Chicago (2002): Pours a deep red black with well formed light tan head and nicely formed lacing. Aromas of roasty chocolate blend perfectly with mild smoky notes. There is a slight spice to the nose, perhaps a combination of the smoke and hops, and a subtle touch of fruit. Great balance of flavors between the sweetness, medium bitter dark chocolate, and light pleasant smoke. Ends on a roasty note with mild smoke and piney hops. Body is slightly creamy and finishes mediumm dry. Very nice drinkable porter. The light smoke adds a really wonderful twist to this brew. Carbonation is nice and prickly up front turning smooth on the the back end.

As with all Stone beers, the Smoked Porter is top shelf. However, it is not really smoked enough for my taste. A smoked porter is a weird idea anyway, because you are already using so many burnt grains. Rogue makes a smoked beer that really tastes smoky. Very yummy. This one, a good porter, but not smoky enough.
