Stone Beer 2018 Barrel Aged Release Wood Fired Porter

7.3% ALC/VOL | Available in 500ml stone crocks and 50L kegs

Last year, the Stone & Wood team syphoned some of the 2017 Stone Beer into a handful of port and second-use whiskey barrels for 12 months of ageing. Dark and robust, barrel-ageing this full-bodied beer has added smooth and velvety chocolate and vanilla notes to the roasted caramel aroma and cocoa flavour.

Both Stone Beer varieties are available now.
