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.

Thin, light brown head. Roasty aroma with a bit of coffee, smoke and bittersweet chocolate. Color is a dark brown/black. Rich, complex chocolaty flavor. Full bodied. Finish is slightly dry and slightly bitter. A great porter. Thanks to willblake for this great brew.

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens Berlin, today. Smooth as can be, and quite subtle. Cumulative flavours become tasty roasted malt. Glad for the encore!

Fruity aroma. Fruity and bitter taste. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Really good beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Love it, love it love, love it. Yummie mocca, caramel and chocolate (like Choco Nibbs from Scharfenberger) nose. Also alcohol. Nice ozzy black color with a big hazelnutbrown frothy long lasting head. After a while nice brussels laces on the glass - here San Marco laces :-) First you get a chocolate mocca mixture taste, that pricks your tongue, rolls back and explodes with a hopp flower right in you whole mouth. Bang! Tanks so much jcalabre for this brew! It was also quite cool to imagine Larry brewing this stuff - thanks Larry - it was like your spirits are with us while we drunk this beer!

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
pours a really deep dark red w/ a nice tan very well laced head. Smells of a smoky roasty burnt malt and bitter chocolate. Big creamy palate well coating. Flavor is pretty mild for a smoked beer but still maintains the burnt malt characteristic w/ a tiny touch of oaky weak vanilla a bit dry hints of coffee. A well done beer but not a style I like all that much. Poured from an 03 thanks to Blake for sharing.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2016
Bomber. Pours a ruby reddish black with a thick, creamy, resilient beige head. Aroma is chocolate, cherry, wood, smoke, vanilla. Flavor is chocolate, toffee, smoke, ash, dark cherry, field berries. Finish is smoke, loads of wood, dark coffee. Lingering wood and smoke. Medium body, velvety and oily mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. A true masterpiece.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2005
22 oz bottle via trade with Whaleman - Thanks Dave!!! - Pours black with a nice mocha head that settles back to about 1/4 inch and laces pretty well. Aroma is roasted malt, a bit of chocolate, and some smoke. Flavor is coffee, a bit of chocolate but not sweet at all. Some definite smoke, roasted malts, and some plums. Interesting palate heavy, but somewhat watery is finished quite dry. Quite silky smooth though. Pretty tasty for a 5 year old brew! I enjoyed this much!

poisoneddwarf (2476) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bomber from Costco. Aroma is roasty, chocolaty, vanilla, bready, minerals, licorice, light smoke, tobacco/leather. Pours black with a thin beige head that falls after a minute; second pour reveals a nice tan head with excellent retention. Taste is roasty and extremely bitter for style with flavors of licorice, coffee, light smoke; a good belch reveals flavors of green danky hops. Its good, but it would be better without the aggressive bitterness, but this is Stone after all and to be expected. Edit: the smoke character increases as it warms in the glass.

22 oz bottle from Windy City El Cajon. Poured deep brown with a decent tan head that quickly shrank to a ring. Did ok in the lacing department. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavors kicked up a bit with the same then add some coffee, hoppy bitterness, alcohol and a dusty finish. Another great Stone Beer.

Turtles (2456) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2016
650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a large, creamy beige head, good lacing. Roasted, woody, chalky and slightly smoky aroma, ash, peat, chocolate and citrus hops, lovely! Medium-bodied, soft carbonated, chalky and smooth mouthfeel. The taste is like the aroma and much more like a BIPA, still very pleasant. Roasted and fruity, coffee, roasted barley, peat, smoked ham, citrus zest and grass. A hoppy kick in the mouth along with the roasted malt that just blend so well. Chalky and citrus fruity finish. Easy to drink, great stuff!
