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!

[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a deep dark amber-brown with an average size lasting frothy beige head. Good lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with a good amount of chipotle, some light smoke, coffee and chocolate. Nice flavour, smoky and quite spicy -- in a good way -- along with some coffee and chocolate in the back. Medium bodied. I love how spicy this is -- really good stuff.

22oz. Pours dark brown medium tan head. Light aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and spice. Medium sweet taste. Medium-heavy body, slick texture, spicy finish. Spice builds the further along I go, good overall.

angel77 (1157) - oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 17, 2014
Botella de 65 cl en cimmeria el 12-09-2014 en el momento. Edición verano, elaborada inicios de 2014. color negro intenso con espuma oscura poco persistente. Aromas maltosos tostados con toques de chiles. Cuerpo medio de 5.9 vol fácil de beber con paso por boca ligero. Sabores maltosos tostados, ahumados y ciertos quemados al final, con un predominio desde el segundo trago y cada vez mas del picante del maravillosos chile chipotle. Gran sensación de picante en todo momento, toda una picante sorpresa que si llega a tener un poco más de cuerpo y densidad maltosa hubiera sido perfecto. Así con todo ha sido la cerveza mas picante probada hasta el momento y toda una sorpresa. Muy buena.

Aroma is fantastic, strong smoked pepper, like a Mexican kitchen. Flavor is solid porter, sweet, and not too thick. Aftertaste is all pepper, no malt or body sticks around.

SpringsLicker (3178) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours black with a tall tan head that quickly settles to a half finger. Aroma of roast malt and a touch of smoke. The flavor starts lightly bitter from roast malts. A bit of sweetness comes through after a few sips and the pepper takes a few sips before it too kicks in. Subtle difference from the regular, but it is there and does it nicely.

Bottle on the train to Portsmouth, IOW Jolly Day, from BD Online 24/08/14. Mahognay brown with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is roasted malt, brown bread, light cocoa, spice, not a huge aroma coming off this one. Taste comprises roasty tones, green pepper rub, spice, green chilli, dark toffee fudge, chocolate. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with subtle chilli heat. Decent enough chilli porter - well checked and not overpowering.

Visually, it’s as expected. The aroma has more chipotle than smoke. That carries to the flavor, as well. This isn’t a sneaky hit, it hits you immediately. However, it’s not overpowering. After you get through the heat, there’s smoke, char, even a bit of chocolate. Lips still tinge for a bit, too. This is truly outstanding. Everything in the title is there, and with phenomenal balance. Love it.

Pours a dark caramel brown with a khaki head. Chocolate, caramel, pepper, coffee and roasted malt aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, chipotle pepper and roasted malt flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Caramel and pepper spice finish. Weird but worth a try.

Leafs93 (1770) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a deep dark brown, almost black with tints of red around the edge. Tan head that dissipated to a thin film. Aroma is earthy, smoke, pepper, and dark chocolate. Taste is bittersweet with some warming heat from the pepper on the finish. Medium bodied, slick texture and overall an excellent smoked porter. Love the little bit of heat as it is just enough without going overboard.
