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.

olio (9669) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Tap @ Artturi.
Pours dark red-brown color with a small off-white head. Licorice on the nose, roast, some faint minty notes, hoppy, malt and subtle cocoa, coffee on the background, cant really locate the smoky notes. Flavor is spicy and roasted malty, licorice with some orange notes, cocoa, strong hops, coffee bitterness. Mild berry notes on the aftertaste, wooden dryness. Interesting but feels a bit harsh.

Korcz (1845) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Totalnie przegięta goryczka w stylu Arrogant Bastard nie pozwala mi się cieszyć tym piwem. A szkoda, bo aromat jest niezły, palony i dymny. Dębu tu nie znajduję.

Pedro_Pinho (205) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2016 Pitch black with a thick and foamy light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is roasted and smoked malt. Good and balanced taste ending with a strong dark chocolate biterness. Average carbonation and medium body. Good stuff!

Hopmaestro (1440) - rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts with light spiceyness and that pinch of smoked malts. Taste is coffee powder, a somewhat earthy character and a pinch of black peppercorns. Its a quite dry and herbal porter this, and with that light smokey character it feels a bit like chewing on an old wooden log from the fireplace. Yeah, I know, -"Dont drink smokey beers if you dont like it you retard", but sometimes you gotta go for it. Overall it turned out to be a really dry porter, that kind of turned it into a foreign stout or something in that region.

OminouSC2 (521) - Mora, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2016
Brown color, huge brown head. Sweet and nuanced aromas of chocolate, vanilla, toffee, caramel and smoked meat. Smoked taste with medium roasted flavors, slight hop with a bitter, earthy finish. I prefer the aromas over the taste.
