Pour is black with a finger of hefty brown head and some considerable lacing. Aroma is bitter chocolaes, smoke, pepper, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is chocolate, smoke, pepper, vanilla, and raisins. Finishes chocolatey and smokey with a slight chili burn that draws out the flaor nicely.

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
750mL in the American Chipotle Porter guise. Thanks to argo0. The pour is deep brown to near black with a healthy, deep brown head with big webby lace. Aroma of rubber, tar, charred oak, brine, dry-cured black olives. Taste is slightly spicy up front moving to raisins and dark stone fruits to be finished with a bombardment of capsaicin true chili spice. Long, chili burn finish. Serious chipotle porter.

Thin black pour with a tan head. Roasty aroma with smoke and pepper. Very spicy smoky flavor. Burns the tongue. Pepper and chile notes.

nimbleprop (5547) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2011
750ml bottle pours a viscous, opaque black with a thin, cloudy brown head. Nose is smoke, plastic, burnt bread, brown sugar. Flavor is smokey, plastic, rubber, malty, coffee, cayenne, bread, dark malts, black pepper. Pepper right in the back of the throat. If you like chiles, this is good, but itís a little abrasive.

ladnewton (1577) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Draft at CASK Pub & Kitchen, London on 5th January 2011. Thick brown with pale brown fine foam ring and slight lacing. Intensely rich woody/peppery aroma and tangy fruits, spiciness and smoke in main flavour profile. Intense and penetrative. Rich smoky finish of bonfire/woodsmoke. Absolutely exquisite.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2011
The bottle i bought was clearly labeled chipotle porter. Missed the mark for me...way too much peppers in it. Left my throat feeling over peppered, kinda of fried. I couldnít drink too much of it. Starts as a thick viscous chipotle porter, but then the peppers take over and just crush it. Interesting, but not for me. Iíve had Stoneís smoked porter with peppers, and itís great, this one is too intense for me.

Travlr (15054) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle as Chipotle Porter. Nearly black, brown head. Aroma of smoke. Peppers really overwhelm the beer, to the point that you need antacids. The BA version is much better.

A- Body is a dark brown, nearly black hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head which has good retention and plenty of lacing is left behind in the glass. S- Smell is big and asky-lots of chipolte, smoke, and roasted malt. T- Flavor is full of chipolte-as it is the highlight of this brew- behind this is mild to moderate smoke and roasted malt. The chipolte intensifies for the finish and lingers on and on for a long time with an ominous spicy heat. M- Carbonation is high and tingly. Body is medium weight and chalky. D- This is a great beer overall-if you like a spicy brew- if you donít you will hate this beer. Its not very complex overall but the smoke adds an interesting component to the spicy porter. The spiciness is big and the highlight. I like that the ABV is reasonable and it offers so much flavor. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-29-2010 14:26:51
