COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone Smoked Porter w/ Chipotle Peppers is a thing of spicy glory, with the just-right heat of smoked jalapeños (aka chipotles) that combines beautifully with the beer’s peat-smoked malt and roasty character. The idea came about in 2006 when Merchandise Manager Chris Carroll suggested we make a special "South of the Border Stone Smoked Porter" for Cinco de Mayo that year. One sip, and we were hooked!

Pours slightly translucent dark brown body with reddish hues. Thin light tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa aroma with a touch of smoke. Taste is bitter chocolate, some burned coffee. Charred oak and a hint of tobacco. Dry finish; the pepper really comes through on the back end. Heat is not overpowering, but enough to take notice. Nice addition of spiciness. Enjoyable with good complexity.

Pours pitch black with a one finger beige head. Peppery aroma with just a hint of smoke. Flavour wise it starts of with notes of cocoa, charred wood, some fruitiness from the pepper and the end is spicy. Alright mouthfeel with good amount of carbonation.

I’ve enjoyed a lot of chilli beers before and usually the heat is best when mixed with food but here the Chipotle is subtle enough for just quaffing. I’ll pair with fajitas shortly.
