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.

I picked these up in New Mexico which still has some on the shelves. I was quite surprised when I was told it was available. Even more so when I actually saw it. Pours a very dark brown with a big pillowy tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, nuts and coffee. Light on the hops, or at least light for Stone. This is a very thick porter and puts most stouts Ive had recently to shame. Thick, rich, delicious. I have a few more thankfully.

Im sure glad i made a trade for this stuff the best porter ive had so far.Nice dark color with a malty aroma and it definately is kickin in the malt flavor with some faint but ever present smokiness that really rounds out this brew and makes it perfect the finish was good with some smokiness again.one phrase says it for me and thats "Damn thats good stuff"

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2004
This is very goooood stuff. Beautiful, very dark, vaguely deep red. Huge head, brownn and full, lasts for a very long time. Nose a bit smoky, lots of woodiness. Great flavor, some smoke, woody, and a great roastiness at the end, a bit of chocolate, nice bitterness, very good things going on. Finish is dry, surprisingly hoppy for a two-year-old beer. Very enjoyable brew.

Sample ar brewery. Dark with oatmeal head. Smoked sausage, but I get a little band aid. Flavor is like smoked sausage too.

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Tall bottle shared at Jeds, it poured a near-opaque dark brown, beige foam. Malty, toasty, roasty, less hoppy than most Stone brews. Bitterness seems derived as much from roasted barley as from hops. Some tangy ripe apricots, black cherry, plum, chocolate, coffee. Not quite burnt but close. Medium body, fairly dry finish. Great stuff.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma and taste are roasted malts, bitter coffee, and lots of bitterness.

2003 Bottle: Enjoyed in 2015, this baby has held up well. Aroma of malts, tanginess. Flavors of mellow chocolate, smoke, and some bitter fruit. Sweet and smoky aftertaste. Thanks Indiana_Red for pulling this out of the cellar.

22oz bottle pours a black color with white head. Smooth smokey maltiness. Lots of hops that bland in nicely.

Completely black with generous tan head. Chocolate and other dark malts make for a superior roasty nose. Thick and strong roasted malt taste that quiclkly fades to a dry, smokey, vanillin rush. Some almost-fruity flavors on the sides of my tongue...insanely wonderful.

A very good beer overall. Pours a beautiful deep ball with a white head. Smells of vanilla, chocolate and mint. Taste is thick and smooth, with vanilla, followed by chocolate and mint, and a hoppy finish. Had on tap at Bailey's Taproom.
