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.

5/24/2016 -- from notes: Pint on tap at Dutch's. Clear dark brown color. Thin off-white head head, leaving great frothy lace. Small bit of earthy hop, nice roastiness, mild to moderate smoke, some dark chocolate. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet, good dryness. Medium to bigger body, good chewiness. Kind of crisp carbonation. Pretty great. Awesome with my reuben.

TEJA (3412) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Big and lasting brown fluffy head. Very dark red brown color. Huge dark roasted malt aroma. Equally big dark roasted malty taste with a firm bitterness and small sweetness with a big body. Good for a New Years warmer.

ibrubeer (432) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 24, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Bomber. Very nice aroma, roasty, a little smoky, sweet. Dark brown color with really nice ruby highlights, beige head that thins but lingers. Little lacing. Not a fan of smoke beers, & this is about as much as I like. Not bad though. Med to full bodied. Smooth. Not my favorite Porter, but not bad!

17wojownik (677) - Krakow, POLAND - NOV 29, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 Butelka 650 ml. Mroczny, inny niż polskie portery bałtyckie. Ciemny, dość oleisty, przepiękna piana. Jest zdecydowanie łagodniejszy w odbiorze, ale także mocny. W smaku czekolada, paloność, karmel, ale też goryczka całkiem spora. Niskie wysycenie, pełna faktura, naprawdę dobrze ułożone. Wędzonki raczej nie odnotowałem. Godne.
