Definitely a change of pace after my Monk's Cafe... pours an almost opaque black with thick off-white head that fades more rapidly than I was expecting. Nice lacing, however. Normal porter notes on the nose of chocolate, dark malt, and a hint of hops. Definitely getting some smoke in there too. Taste is pretty good, chocolate malt, dark malt, some near coffee flavors, some piney hops (slight), and a bit of smoke. The smoke here is actually more pronounced in the nose than the flavor. Slightly creamy body, though it falls flat at the front of the palate. It could use (I can't believe I'm saying this) a bit more carbonation. Or more body. Pretty easy drinker here, although I feel as though it is due to the moderation in smoke flavors. A good introduction for me to smoked beers, but next time I might just go for a smoke bomb. I guess I can't fault this beer too much because it is definitely a porter, and a good one at that. I need to remember that it is Stone Smoked Porter and not Stone Rauchbier.

Pours an opaque dark brown with tan head. Head starts of really thick, but as it dissipates it leaves an incredibly thin layer on top. Some spotty lacing. Smells of smoke and roasted malt, though the smoke isn't as huge as some smoked beers. Lots of roasted flavour. Body is thinner than some porters, but it is on the verge of almost being creamy. I expected more smoke based on the name, but still a tasty beer.

Served in a tulip glass.

Dark brown with a tan head that dispersed quickly that left little lacing.

Coffee and chocolate with a hint of smoke as it warmed up the smoke intensified.

Burnt coffee and chocolate up front with some bitterness in the middle and a light smokey finish.

Really never liked this beer in the past, I could not taste any smokiness in it. They had it on tap and decided to get a small glass of this to try it again and was happy that I did. It is a great beer.

Appearance- No head, dark brown beer, light reddish around the edges.

Smell- Very little nose here. Thats about it.

Taste- Slightly smoked flavor here, not overly burnt though, some hops and chocolate and coffee notes are very subdued.

Mouthfeel- Perhaps a bit watery here.

Drinkability- Solid.
