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 very deep red brown with a light tan head. Roasty molasses and honey aroma. Roasty molasses cocoa flavor with some definite hops. Better once I really start to notice the hops.

Svart öl med ett mörkbeige skum. Doft av rostad malt, choklad och lättare asktoner. I smaken tillkommer karamell, lätt kryddighet och kakao.

mzaar (3443) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2016
Flaska. Svart öl med ett beigt skum. Dofter av kaffe, aska, lakrits och rostad malt. Smakinslag av kaffe, lakrits, torkad frukt, rök och karamell. Härligt sammansatt till en mycket drickbar och njutbar enhet. Lätt sälta i avslutningen.

Lilja (3159) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2016
Tack Daniel! Flaska från SB. En söt porter med så mycket karaktär. Aningen rökig som ger en lätt kärvhet, värme från alkoholen, chokladig maltighet, lätt ekkaraktär med lite vanilj och på det en hel del humle med tydlig men mjuk och rund beska. Allt i snygg harmoni och inte tungt någonstans. 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
