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.

Tack Daniel! Flaska frn SB. En st porter med s mycket karaktr. Aningen rkig som ger en ltt krvhet, vrme frn alkoholen, chokladig maltighet, ltt ekkaraktr med lite vanilj och p det en hel del humle med tydlig men mjuk och rund beska. Allt i snygg harmoni och inte tungt ngonstans. Riktigt riktigt gott.

This promised a lot, but only delivered some of it - there are some lovely coffee and bitter chocolate notes, and there is a lingering bitterness from the hops...but it is a bit thin and fizzy, and I'm not getting any of the fruit/vanilla flavours mentioned or the usual soft mouthfeel from wood ageing. Still a really good stout, just not world class

660ml bottle from Doghouse. Almost black, not much head. Fancy bottle. Chocolate malt aroma. Sweet fishy flavour. Hoppy spicy aftertaste. Quality even though it is not my sort of beer.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Bomber into tulip glass, opaque deep brown (black) with darker tan head. Aroma notes of citrus/grass hops, smoke, roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruitiness. Taste adds coffee, licorice, mineral, vanilla, wood char, brown sugar, dark chocolate, some nuttiness and pine hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body, moderate-low carbonation, tad chalky, dry with lingering earthy bitter roast finish. A hoppy porter with some smoke influence, very nice.
