COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rich chocolatey aromas, hints of wood, dark fruits and a touch of booze. Mid bodied porter with a initial carbonation bite. Flavor is bitter dark chocolate and coffee, the booze hides the oak and fruit but the hops make an appearence at the end. Overall i like it.

DocJitsu (1684) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Pours a dark chestnut brown with a one-finger, rich, khaki colored head. Roasted malt nose. A bit nutty. Rich and bold, particularly for the style. Relatively, quite thick. Sweet up front, but burnt ends savoriness quickly dominates and lingers.

HonusWagner (2093) - Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2016
An intensely hoppy dark malt beer, more black IPA than imperial porter but perhaps with some age the malt would come through more clearly. Still very good stuff.

adster (680) - HUNGARY - AUG 3, 2016
Éjfekete színben érkezik, bézs színű habot fejleszt, imperial porterektől nem éppen szokatlan módon marcipános, étcsokoládés, tejszínes illatokkal operál, krémesen édes, konyakosan-likőrösen alkoholos aromákat áraszt. Tejszerű, sima és lágy zamatai érett jegyeket rejtenek, fahordós, vaníliás, kissé pörkölt, pisztáciás karakter bújik meg a krémes, közepes teltségű szerkezetben. Az alkoholfok már nem ennyire észrevétlen, noha nem a legdurvább mérték, amelyhez valaha szerencsém volt. Összességében azonban remek főzet, bár nem a vérmesebb imperial porterek közül való.

bhensonb (14077) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bomber from A.J.’s Food Mart in Soquel. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma of smoke, medium dark fruit, some treacle, and chocolate. Med body or so. Flavor is smoky, chocolate, toffee and fruits.. But smoke is the major flavor contributor. With time berry is noticeable. Smoked berry? Weird, but nice. Good stuff.

Pours dark brown with a big fluffy, tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa powder and smoke. A very very smokey beer, like a proper Isle of Skye whisky which is great cause I love them. Really smooth.
