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.

Fisler (659) - Bamberg, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2017
In der Nase ungewöhnlich fruchtig für ein Porter. Im Trunk setzt sich das fort, erst Zitrus, dann bitter, leicht alkoholisch, dann drück das Röstmalz durch und die dunklen Kaffeenoten kommen durch. Schön komplexe Klaviatur, langer Abgang. Tolles Porter, sehr gut trinkbar für seine gelagerten 8 Prozent.

Muggus69 (2673) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2017
640mL bottle from Boozebud. Bottled 04/12/16 Looks the part - near black opaque body, holds a creamy light tan head leaving clumpy lace. Aroma rather hoppy - get that sort cooked citrus old hop character, honey, toffee, raisin, dark toast. Thick body, oily, drying character smooth, well hidden booze. Once again, bags of hoppy, old bitter citrus character, burnt sugars, raisins, dark fruits, cocoa, smoky, woodness lingers, lots of bitterness. Pretty full on, fair bit of aged character sneaking through - more than expected for a beer only 1 year old (poorly handled perhaps?) - intense either way.

mjs (7610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2017
(Bottle, 0.65 l - bottled on 04/03/16,  from Systembolaget, 20170818) The beer poured clear and very dark brown. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, creaminess, dark chocolate and mildly coffee. Palate was full bodied and soft with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, dark chocolate, grass, cocoa and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. A nice soft porter with long lasting taste.

Fules (1341) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2017
Közepes, nagyon tartós, bézs hab, vöröses árnyalatú fekete szín. Enyhe füstös, kávés, vaníliás illat. Kávés, aszalt gyümölcsös, hordós-csersavas ízvilág, vaníliás, füstös aromákkal, hosszú, kesernyés lecsengéssel. Melegedéssel csokis, alkoholos zamatok tűnnek elő. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, erősen keserű. Kicsit sok a keserű, de nagyon finom, ízgazdag sör.
