As a long time fan of Stone ipas, I was very excited to try their smoked porter, it did not dissappoint. This offering pours a very near black color with a thick tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves a nice film and lacing. The nose is robust and roasty. Lots of coffee, dried fruits, leather, and a slight smoky quality. Not as abrasive as in some smoked beers. The flavor confirms the nose. Smooth and rich and roasty. Coffee, vanilla, and chocolate abound and are accented by the slight smokiness. Mouthfeel is rich and luxurious; almost more stout like than porter. This is an excellent beer. Stone does a great job of balancing the flavors without making the smoke too prevalent. Well done!

I'll be honest I haven't had too many porters maybe 6-7 but this one is by far the best I've had.

Pours a cool dark reddish color with a creamy head which leaves a very nice lacing
The smell is slightly sweet but also a hint of roasted coffee.
Know the taste is what I would consider very complex. Initially a bit of chocolate but then the smoky roast flavors and a slightly bitter finish but in a very good and balanced way.
Very flavor full but not overwhelming, the flavor contrasts are something else.

Let me tell you these STONE BOYS don't mess around and not just because I'm a CALI native.

I just told the wife I will be spending my B-Day at their Escondido location I hear its like Disneyland for the brew heads.

Go Team USA..

Cheers.
