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.

Pours black with full, light beige head. Aroma is caramel, smoke and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate and light cherry, moving to heavy roast and burnt coffee. Finish is bitter coffee. Meh.

Bottle: Deep, deep ruby-amber coloured, presumably clear, medium-sized lacy tanned head; moderate to solid dry bitter-sweet roasty and fruity nose with chocolatey traces; solid dry bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, soft; dried fruits and cacao in the dry roasty-bitter finish. Well made, well balanced...

Bottle sample @ RBBWG Mar 10h. 2018, thanks Tinus. Brune foncée, col fin beige. Arôme est malté, caramel, petite note en rétro de grillé avec une pointe houblonnée typique de côte ouest. Palais est malté, finement chocolaté, grillé avec une petite amertume des grains et chocolat, trouve également une touche épicée avec un effet de fin proche d'une black-ipa

2.2
dorain (866) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2018
Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-09 getrunken. Super bitter durch den deutlichen Hopfeneinsatz und extreme Kaffeenoten. Leider ist dieses Porter sehr unharmonisch was mit dem Rauchmalz es nicht leichter erträglicher gemacht hat. Nein ehrlich das hier ist nicht meins.
