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 semi-opaque cola-brown with a tight, 3-finger tan head. Mild aroma of vanilla and wood, mixed with a note of coffee. Maybe some cherry as well. Body is medium-to-full and lightly oily. Mildly dry finish. Flavor is nutty, with some char to it, and a note of berry at the back. A touch of citrus and maybe some vanilla as it warms.

3.9
adster (829) - 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.

3.9
HonusWagner (2226) - Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2016
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.
