Definatly far and away the best of the Stone brews I've had in my honest opinion, this one has some semblance of balance to it. As much as these guys brag... more hops doesn't always mean better fellas.

Pours a very nice and dark brown, pretty much black, with amber tones around the sides of the glass. A thick and fluffy light tan accompany with good retention, also lots of sticky lace. Nose is smooth, malty even, wafts of smoke and just a little hop character as well. Taste is just a little bitter, more hops than in most porters. Lots of slick malt, smoke and dry, black coffee flavor, tons of roast. Finish is smooth, no alcohol detected. Mouthfeel is medium and quite clean.

Not a bad porter at all, pretty good really in many ways, a good amount of complexity, definatly worth a taste. The smoke really makes this one shine though, helps it to stand out from the crowd.

Slàinte!

Tasted at the Pop the Cap Winter Warmer Event, 1/31 at Tyler's.

This is an attractive dark beer. Jet black with as white a head as I've ever seen atop such a dark brew, with very little carbonation. Aroma is typical porter, plus a nice, roasty, smoky element--a pattern that also holds true in the flavor. I'm really a fan of the thick, smoky taste that comes to kick your taste buds and then leaves to let them recover. I'm thoroughly impressed by how potent yet unoppressive this beer is.

This beer does one thing (beautifully subtle smoke flavor) and does it well. I'm a fan.

22 oz. bottle with "Enjoy by 3/8/07". Pitch black with big light brown head.

Big ass chocolate, esspresso, toffee, and woody aromas. Very macho.

Starts chocolately, with lots of roasty coffee like flavors and finishes smokey. Mild spicy hop flavors are apparent on the sides of the tongue but are well hidden by the bolder flavors mentioned above. There is some mild tartness that lingers on the tongue for a while.

Medium bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel. Light-medium carbonation tickles the tongue.

Overall a very tasty and drinkable porter. Could spend a Fall evening with a couple bottles of this.

Pours a bark and lovely brown with a smallish fizzy head. Little retention and lacing. Smells a little smoky and oaky.

The tatse is a very nice and flavorful. A lot of subtle smoke flavor with a bit of charcoal and toasted nut hiding in the back. Not overly hopped, which is a departure for Stone. Mouthfeel was a hair thin for my liking and it was just a little too fizzy but overall a really decent session porter.

Paired a bomber with some hickory smoked st louis style ribs. WOW!

Exceptional from start to finish. Exactly what I was looking for when I picked up this Smoked Porter. Light shows through which i did not expect, showing a dark brown with hints of reds. The smoke is not overwhelming, its just right. Great smoky chocolate taste with a creamy feel. So smooth and easy to drink.

Pours nicely with a full head and a dark amber body. The head retains itself very well throughout the beer. Leaving nice trails down the glass.

Sweet chocolaty smells rise from this beer accompanied by smokey notes.

Smokey coffee and chocolate tastes make this beer very enjoyable another taste of something I can't quite put my finger on maybe a little bit of molasses.

A nice smooth light body makes this beer go down very easy.
