Stone 20th Anniversary Encore Series: 6th Anniversary Porter
Brewery: Stone Brewing
Style: Imperial Porter
Format: 650ml Bottle
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 flavours while also adding subtle notes of toffee, cherries, dried berries and vanilla. We're proud to give those who missed outas well as those who didn'ta fresh shot at experiencing this smoky, dark-as-night wonder.
