COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special 6th Anniversary release is a "cranked up a notch or three" version of our Stone Smoked Porter. Our Stone Anniversary brews are a chance for our brewers to go a little wild (even more than they do on a daily basis). We added more malt (which brings up the viscosity and raises the abv to 8%), a fatter dose of hops and conditioned on both French and American oak (which contributes a softness to the mouthfeel and a far-off-in-the-distance hint of vanilla).

22 oz Bomber right in to the glass with am impressive lace and an absolute smell of perfection. dark , really dark. Smoky rich and malty are what comes to mind after the first few sips.Thick rich palate perfectley accompanies the malty oak complexity of this Porter.Flavours of hops, homemade bread,German chocolate cake, and triple shot latte,Ends somewhat salty and still a definite top 50 beer.Robust is the signature of this Porter, this beer came straight from Mr.ArrogantBastard, Thanks Greg you have another winner here, Extremely Recommended !

My favorite porter. Dark, roasted chocolate. And hoppy bitterness that's uncommon for a porter. Can taste the smoke rolling off your tongue.

Wonderful dark, thick malty brew, with a thick creamy head, and aa great malty aroma. Full of malty flavor, and just the right touch of bitterness.

Same appearance as their smoked porter. Much hoppier aroma, more edgy, not really smoky enough. More on the hop side than the chocolate one. I like the original one much better.

Poured a creamy brown with a super amount of head. A decent amount of hops greets my first taste. In whole this is a suped up Porter with a lot more hops than most porters.

Very dark, roasty flavor, but too much hop bitterness for this style. Smoked flavor nicely subdued, but a porter shouldn't be this bitter.

This was my third beer from Stone Brewery and they are definitely becoming my favorite brewer.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Smells good, roasted malts, an earthy smell. Motor oil thick and dark but with a red to the dark brown. Big fine bubbled head. Taste’s a little sweet, roasted grain, coffee, molasses, and raisins combined with citrus,flowers and this beer is just a bit sour. This is a thick mouth feeling beer and a great one

Brilliant... just brilliant.... I made a mess in my jeans when i smelled it....The color is ebony, the aroma reminds me a smoked porter and an excellent barley wine, very strong. The smoke flavor was less than that of the smoked porter, the smoke was mellowed, a sweet taste with hints of dark chocolate malts, and some hops, smooth smooth smooth, full palate and a pleasantly smoked aftertaste. One of the best.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2003 Deep, rich color. Dense, rocky head. Aroma of alcohol and coffee. Starts off tasting kind of burnt, good hop balance (which is surprising since this is a stone beer). After about 4-5 big sips this beer really melds in your mouth making every sip Beervana.
