Reviewed from tasting notes.

Poured out a dark brown color with a brief flash head and minimal lacing, smells and taste mostly of chocolate, coffee, and has a very accessibly light licorice / smoke character to it. Seriously, it's really quite light on the smoke for your typical smoked beer. In that regards, it could serve as an introduction to the style for the neophyte....medium body and carbonation, a fairly by-the-books porter that just happens to have an exciting accent of smoke along for the ride. However, I personally have come to expect a lot more smoke from a smoked beer than what has been presented to me in this brew...

Stone Smoked Porter: Yup, it’s a smoked porter. You can see a hint of color if you hold this brew up to the light. The head is thin and off-white. The aroma is very earthy. Lots of malt tones come through in the flavor, but stay balanced and not too sweet. The finish brings on the smoky flavors and a bit of bitter aftertaste. Overall, I am not a big smoked porter fan, but if you like this style the Stone rendition lives up to its namesake.

Enjoyed a pint of this with my good buddy PatronWizard at the Yardhouse in Chino Hills. Review is from notes taken at this establishment.

A: Dark-brown hue with hints of ruby red, probably caused by the piercing light that penetrated my glass. Also exhibited a thick and appetizing beige head.

S: Really subtle, which made it hard to pinpoint anything in particular other than dark and brown malts.

T: A distinct burnt taste with dark malts. A lot of my friends pick up that BBQ smokiness, but its much more subtle than what I thought it would have been.

M: Lighter than most porters I've had; medium body and light on the carbonation side.

D: Easy to drink...no hint of alcohol at all. Perfect for a get together with friends and family.

Overall: A worthy to good beer on the BA scale. Will probably enjoy again, but not the first thing I will look for on a beer list.

Appearance- ½ in light mocha color head. Dark black with brown edges. Head fades at medium pace. Nice lacing and cant see carbonation due to its so dark.

Smell- Stronger scent. Maybe smoke with lots of malts, and light hops?

Taste- Smokey aftertaste with a light bitterness to it but not much. Malty, don’t know what flavor that I’m tasting (after reading others reviews on BA it made sense and I tasted it that it’s a light coffee taste). Can taste the smokiness though especially when it warms up comes out pretty strong and in aftertaste. Not to hoppy I believe. There’s a light bitterness to it probably from the hops coming through. Flavors come out more when it warms.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with light carbonation but it is there as a light bite at first.

Drinkabilty- Wish I could tell what the taste is (found out it is probably coffee), tastes familiar. It’s better the more I drank. This did make me want to try more porters. Was kind of glad when it was over

Poured from a 22 oz bottle on 12/1/09

I'll start off by saying that I don't normally like smoked beers, this bottle is probably a year old

A - Pours a pitch black with 2 inches of tan foam

S - chocolate, roasted malts, hints of smokiness

T - chocolate at first, then smokiness followed by a charcoal flavor, not bad at all, smoke flavor comes in later in the mouth

M - good carbonation, smooth creamy mouthfeel

D - the smoke builds here, a nicely balanced beer, by the end of the bottle, it was too much for me, but overall i'd drink this one over most other smoked beers
