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.

olio (10265) - 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, can’t 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.

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.

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 (1653) - Örebro, 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. It’s 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, -"Don’t drink smokey beers if you don’t 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.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt brun med fluffigt ljusbrunt skum. Doft av fat, torkad frukt och choklad. Beskan från humlen slår igenom. Lätt kropp med lite kola.

OminouSC2 (666) - 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.

@ Stordirren 16-10-31: ganska svag doft och smak med toner av skinka och aska. Ganska fyllig vätska med en lite bitter eftersmak.

Clear, brown beer with a huge, four finger high, beige head that leaves a lot of lacing on the Spigelau Stout glass.

Nose: Caramel malt, fudge, cookie dough, vanilla, brown sugar, whipped cream, oak, charcuterie and smoke.
Taste: Soft taste of caramel, dried fruit, grapefruit, brown sugar, roasted malt, oak, ash, smoke and fudge.
Mouth: Full body. Light carbonation. Smooth texture. Bitter and dry ending. The bitterness grows back on my tongue long after the beer has gone down my throat.

Of course Stone has done it again! A solid, great beer with a beautiful soul.

Flaska från SB. Mörk kolabrun/svart med fingerhögt beiget skum som ligger kvar som en tunn hinna. Rostade toner i doften med mycket kaffe, chark, rökiga toner, toffee, laktos och en gräddig ton. Ganska stor och fyllig kropp. Väl avvägt mellan en lite silkeslen känsla och mer stickig. Välhumlad, nästan mer åt en svart-IPA i smaken. Hårt rostade, brända toner, toffee, lite choklad och kaffe längre bak. Laktos och grädde här med. Fint rökiga toner. Riktigt bra.
