We celebrated our first five years in business by releasing anniversary India pale ales, with each subsequent IPA brewed to be hoppier and more intense than the previous. For our 6th anniversary in 2002, we extended this concept by making an intensified version of Stone Smoked Porter. We cranked up the malts and hops a notch or three and conditioned it on French and American oak, which accentuated our porter’s distinctive smokiness and amplified its chocolate and roast coffee flavors while also adding subtle notes of toffee, cherries, dried berries and vanilla. We’re proud to give those who missed out—as well as those who didn’t—a fresh shot at experiencing this smoky, dark-as-night wonder.

Si ya de por si la smoked porter es buena, esta es genial. Notas ahumadas, café, chocolate y maltas tostadas. De color negro con ligeros destellos granates. Corona de espuma abundante de excelente retención. Cuerpo medio. En boca es suave, equilibrada y con mucho sabor. Al paladar es exquisita y compleja. Se encuentran sabores ahumados, malta tostada, café, chocolate amargo y cerezas. El alcohol se percibe en el retrogusto como una calidez en garganta. Definitivamente buena!

Bottle. The look is dark, brownish black in color. The smell is roasty, malt, burnt, coffee, prunes, and rasian. The taste is much the same, really roasty burnt.

seymour (1876) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Tall bottle shared at Jed’s, it poured a near-opaque dark brown, beige foam. Malty, toasty, roasty, less hoppy than most Stone brews. Bitterness seems derived as much from roasted barley as from hops. Some tangy ripe apricots, black cherry, plum, chocolate, coffee. Not quite burnt but close. Medium body, fairly dry finish. Great stuff.

cmacklin (815) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours a clear red-brown with a huge, long lasting, creamy, tan head that leaves plenty of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and cherry. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, peat, oak, toffee and coffee with a hint of grapefruit in a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Weird... very hoppy for a porter... but also very enjoyable.

Black with a tall, light beige head. Aroma is smoky, dark roast coffee, and a hint of dark chocolate. Rich smoky flavor, some vanilla, finish of dark coffee. Smooth and creamy feel lingers. Very nice.
