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.

22oz bottle 9/15/16 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in shaker-Pours black with a small loose tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate, and slight smoke. Taste of the same with more coffee, and smoke on the back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and hits the spot on a cool evening.

Dark cola colored with thin tan head. Straw, chalk, hay, chocolate, vanilla, and butterscotch aromas. Malty sweetness throughout with slight bitter and sour notes on the finish. Chocolate, coffee, cola, and floral flavors. Very drinkable, fairly high ABV porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad at all. It’s got a delicious smokiness, a bit toasty on the back of the throat. Great Anniversary beer!!

Rich super deep dark brown body, about 90% opaque with almost no head at all! Aroma of very strong and assertive bread, yeast, malt, nuts and coffee. Medium to Full-bodied; very strong malty and pungent bitterness from the grain, roast and the coffee with a noticeable and not very pleasant alcohol burn showing bread and unfinished yeast as well. Aftertaste is reply bittered as well with earth, grain and that yeast really coming out and not in a good way! Overall, very disappointing with a very bitter flavour throughout and almost nothing pleasant. I’m glad I had this on tap and just 10oz. Another huge letdown from Stone - if you took off the label on the front, this score would drop 30 points! I sampled this 10oz snifter on draught from Whole Foods in Pentagon City, Virginia (Arlington) at the end of my driveway on 07-September-2016 for US$5,00.

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Berlin, today. Smooth as can be, and quite subtle. Cumulative flavours become tasty roasted malt. Glad for the encore!

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!
