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.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2005
[Sampled 2 and 2½ years old] A dark red-brown beer with a huge chocolate-brown head. The aroma is sweet and slightly acidic with notes of chocolate, coffee, malt, and alcohol - nice - but a little too much alcohol for my liking. The flavor is sweet with lots of roated malt combined notes of chocolate, and coffee, as well hints of alcohol - which is more present in the mouthfeel, where it burns the tongue. The end is pretty hoppy which together with the roasted malt and coffee gives it a bitter end, though with the alchol making a clear presence. Surprisingly this is a bit over the top giving it some sour hints - but still a solid brew.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
On tap at BrewDog Shepherds Bush as Stone 6th Anniversary Porter. Black beer lasting tan head. Big dark chocolate aroma. It’s a porter with chocolate then a bit thin as it goes on then a lot of dryness and bitterness. Not sure what to make of it. I like the aroma and mouthfeel amd the poise of the beer but it’s weird as well. Oily tarry. Too intense maybe. Too tight. It needs to relax. Finish lacks finesse.

Taste comprises light coffee grinds, earthy hop, cocoa powder, very light smoke, dark fruit rinds, toffee, pinch of black pepper. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent porter.

Bottle @ The Greenwald Residence. Thanks, Jake. Cola colored beer with a khaki head. Intense smoke and roasted malts. Kind of meaty, which is off-putting to me. At least some dark fruits like raisin, black cherry, and plum. Certainly some of those typical roasty notes, coffee, and dark chocolate as well. Actually comes off a little bit acidic as well. Just not a fan of this one.

Very dark burgundy. Aroma shows roast, coffee, hazelnuts, light smoke. Palate also has some subtle smoke, lots of dry hoppiness, good roast character. Light creaminess comes in late but there's another flurry of hops as well. A few less of those would do well. More of a foreign stout IMO.
