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.

Bomber to tulip. Smoky malt with slight mint backing. A little peatty. Deep brownish red with light brown head that retains well. Taste is chocolate and moderate high smoke. Rich, well rounded mouthfeel.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Deep dark brownish black, creamy tan head. Awesome nose of expresso, bittersweet chocolate, bitter citrus, leather and light smoke. The taste is a complex blend of blackened chocolate, earth, smoke, with a good hint of Stones citric hops to round it out. Full bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter hop finish. If only there was more....

shadey (2098) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Pitch black color with a thin khaki creamy head. The aroma poured out of the bottle as soon as I popped the top. Dark chocolate and smooth roast. Flavor is still quite nice even after almost four years. Dark fruity esters. The alcohol is there but subtle. The body is huge and silky smooth. Pretty bitter, but soo delicious. Ive been hunting this beer for a while now, and Im glad it wasnt disappointing.

Someone was kind enough to bring this to DL Day: Dark brown, tan head. Smooth with a nice smoky chocolate thing going on. Some coffee and a little dark fruit. Very good.

A nice looking beer, beautiful creamy tan head superb lacing. Deep dark ruby not quite opaque. Very nice smoky chocolate and some wood. The flavor is lots of chocolate, tons of smoke and a big wallop of bitter roasted malt at the end. Medium full body. The finish is a tad harsh but overall an enjoyable beer.
