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.

Dusty body. No head. Sweet, malty chocolate finish with strong notes of coffee. A very delicious porter with a nice texture and complexity.

Bottle at the “Drink for Charity” event at Rattle & Hum thanks to Mike who brought a vertical from 2nd to 12th. Finally one that wasn’t a dead IPA. The porter held up excellently. Pours a deep black with a thick thin white head. Gorgeous aromas of smoke, leather, tobacco, plum, prunes, chocolate. Medium bodied with dark fruit flavors and a touch of chocolate. Finishes with a touch of smoke and roast. This was great.

BeerRenter76 (834) - Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2016
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 (1712) - 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.

dmac (5628) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2016
22 Oz bottle from Spirits Jackson. Poured a medium to fuller density with a huge foamy beige head. Aroma is chocolatey, super old coffee with creamer, wet toast, hint of sugar. Flavor is better than the aroma loads of dusty chocolate, creamer, coffee, earthy, slight soy and cola.

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 (685) - 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.
