22oz. bomber ($3.99 @ Bottle King in Hillsdale!) poured into a pint glass.

Pours black with ruby highlights and about two fingers worth of tan head that leaves behind gobs of lacing. Smells pleasantly roasty and lightly smoky with some chocolate. Tastes much like the smell; smokiness dominates while roasted malts and chocolate provide a solid backbone. The smokiness dominates initially but slowly yields to a roasty flavor that itself dominates by the finish. Good mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, I feel the smokiness builds and may be a bit overpowering after a few. This beer is a good, solid beer that I'd certainly recommend.

Was glad to hear the Wegman's in State College, PA started carrying beer, so I grabbed this while I was there and poured it into my pint glass...

This is simply chocolate thrown into a damn campfire!

A: Brown in color, but light for a porter. Looks more like a dark brown ale. When held up to the light, this has a nice red/cola color that looks real nice. The head is a three finger dark khaki and very creamy and lasts a long time.

S: Smell is phenomenal for the style. Let me first start by saying that this smells like a bonfire. Very woody and smokey, just as this is advertised. There is also a lot of chocolate and a tad cigarette smell in the nose also. Very complex smell, also with some dark cocoa and roast as well.

T: I usually go into these beers thinking that there will be a lack of smoke or woody flavors, but this one really lives up to the expectations. This one is extremely smokey, just like a campfire. It is a bit light in body, but still has nice chocolate and light cocoa flavors as well that make up for that.

Overall, this is a great smoked porter. It is not heavy or thick, but has a lot of smoke, chocolate, and cocoa flavors that get the job done.

Pours from a bomber a very dark brown aproaching black with a tight off white/tan head.

Very Slight smoke on the nose. (Maybe I just got too used to Schlenkerla). Almost more of a peaty smokiness than a wood quality. Chocolate and roasted malts.

This is a very good American Porter but not really a smoked beer in my opinion, and I guess acording to others opinions judging by it's listed category. Not as bitter as I was bracing myself for in the Stone tradition. However it is very well balanced and quite a noble example if I must say.

very clean and well structured just not as pleasing as some other favorites of mine.

Pours a dark, dark brown with a modest light brown head. Aroma is of sweet, strong coffee, with a really small hint of smoke. Rich and full-bodied with a creamy, but crisp mouthfeel. Chocolately, coffee-like malt with a hint of smoke. Hop bitterness also comes into play. Ah, another beer that drinks like a meal. This isn't a porter for wimps, as this has a huge taste. Despite all this, I would say that this isn't Stone's best beer.
