Stone Smoked Porter

Sorry about the lack of updates. I've been busy slaving away my kitchen makes gallons upon gallons of applesauce. As a result, I haven't had time to really write out reviews. Right now, I'm done for the day, so I thought I'd crack open a beer adn write out a review.

I thought I'd give the west coast some love tonight. So I'm reviewing Stone's Smoked Porter.

Brewery: Stone Brewing Co.
Beer: Smoked Porter
Style: Porter
ABV: 5.9
Price: ~$6 for a 22oz bottle

This beer pours a dark reddish brown with a dense tan head. Aroma is full of chocolate, malt, and maybe a tad of smoke. Flavor is slightly sour, with chocolate, roasty malts, with a certain sweetness to it. Smokey flavor is non existent Mouthfeel is medium with a creamy feel to it. Well, to be honest, this beer was kinda a let down. It comes off as a nice porter, but nothing spectacular.

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3.5/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 14/20

Final Score: 34.5/50


  1. I've had this one before but I personally don't have much of a taste for porters. I'll take Arrogant Bastard any day though.

  2. i didnt really like this one , but your score matches what i would say about it

  3. I would say that is pretty accurate...nice job
