Style: Smoked Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A porter with hints of chocolate & coffee balanced by subtle smokiness
First Release: December 1996

When first released, our smoky version of a traditional English porter was ahead of its time. Today, it's a highly regarded staple among craft beer fans and our go-to food complement, pairing effortlessly with all kinds of cuisine, from peanut butter and banana sandwiches to braised pork belly and apple pie. This worldly libation is dark, smooth and complex, with chocolate and coffee flavors suffused with subtle smokiness from the addition of peat-smoked malt.

A-Deep opaque brown color. thick fluffy 3 finger head.

S-Smokey, sour, grainy smell

T- Mild smoke flavor, i almost wouldnt notice it if it wasn't called "smoked porter". Very pleasant, sweet, a bit nutty. ever so slightly bitter. the smoke flavor came out a bit more as the beer warmed up.

M-Very smooth and silky. great carbonation level.

D-a very drinkable, sessionable porter. a bit on the sweet side, which is nice. no complaints here!

once again, shared this one with the donkeyrunner, thanks dude.

First smoked porter and since it's from Stone I should be pleased. Poured thick, dark brown with a small beige head that dissipated quickly.
Smelled the smoke, some hops, and baking chocolate.
Coffee, heavy malt and a slight sensation of smoke followed by a decent hop bite.
Mouthfeel was slightly thin, but not disappointing. I would love to have this again sometime.
