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 porters distinctive smokiness and amplified its chocolate and roast coffee flavors while also adding subtle notes of toffee, cherries, dried berries and vanilla. Were proud to give those who missed outas well as those who didnta fresh shot at experiencing this smoky, dark-as-night wonder.

Nice fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry sour-ish roasted, grass, weeds, sour-ish roasted grain, hops, minerals, bark, sour coffee, alcohol, dark sugar. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish roasted, minerals, weeds, bark, alcohol, grass, burnt grain, paper, sour coffee, harsh hops. Longlasting bitterness, harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

Nstan svart med beiget skum. I doften finns mycket kaffe och lakrits. Smaken domineras av kaffe och stark lakrits, hr finns en rejl beska som dominerar. Nja, inte helt vertygad, jag tycker att det blev s mycket beska att sjlva portern frsvann.

Linnet (1739) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2016
Hoppy, citric, coffee, subtle smoke, salty licorice, woody, alcohol, soy sauce and undefined fruitiness. Deep Brown colour, medium creamy beige head, lacing. Salty, big bite, mid-sweet, soy sauce, coffee, grapefruit and dried berries in the taste, ABV very well integrated. Almost like a black IPA in the taste. Medium/fullbodied, creamy feel, bitter, roasty and oaky finish. Lovely brew.

rosenbergh (10905) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Draught at the Artturi, Tampere, Finland. Black color with a mid-size foamy off-white head. Dark berries, berry juice, darkness, licorice and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, bitterness, dryness and salty licorice. Balanced. But somehow I'm not impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
