Look: Dark black, not much head.

Smell: extremely fruity plus the smell of smoked grain. Really interesting and satisfying.

Taste: hoppy, really malty and a smokey (no surprise there!)

Overall: A really great beer, and I'll surely get it again!

A 22 ounce bomber poured into a Nonic/Imperial pint glass (this beer deserves it).

Appearance - Dark ruby red color. Big, dense, tan, lumpy head. Mondo stickage. Despite the dark color, the clarity is amazing. Awesome!

Smell - Malty. Smokey (no surprise there).

Taste - Big malt. Smokey (again, no surprise). This beer has an acidic black coffee flavor (which is great because I love the flavor of strong black coffee). There is a touch of sweet that works well with the aforementioned bold flavors. As if all that weren't enough, the hops are also vying for your attention.

Mouth - Oily. Slick.

Overall - In the past, I've been a little biased against Stone ales (some of their ales are overly hoppy and their marketing campaign is a little obnoxious). Smoked Porter, however, is a winner. What's most impressive about this beer is that, despite the big flavor, it's still relatively smooth (as a fine Porter should be). Yet another bold and wonderful California ale!

Modest smoked flavor. Not as heavy as you'd expect. Good after taste.

Got this one on sale during Christmas holiday. A little bitter for my taste but it was good.
