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!

Big black body smaller tan head... Flavor has chipotle in just enough of a way.. Some light pepper notes finish... Green pepper flavor in a way, not much of a roasted quality, smokiness is still lightly present.. Nice beer, medium bodied...

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of smoked chilies, campfire, caramel and some chocolate. Flavor is smokey with bitter chocolate and some sweet caramel. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. This is really nice, I think it’s an improvement on the regular version because you can actually get a decent smoke character. No real chili heat at all, just added smoke.

Bottle: Dark brown with auburn hues. Roasty nose with light smoke. The smokiness is toned down from the original, not really picking up on the chipotle. Less ash and more roast, some cocoa, but no peppers. Good, but I was expecting more.

ben4321 (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 8/30/12

Aroma: The aroma has lots of smoked malts/meat, burnt malts, and some peppery notes
Appearance: Pours a deep, dark drown color with a smooth froth of light brown head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor of the one, like the nose, is also heavy malty, with lots of roasted/burnt flavors, some medium-plus smoke, and, while not a ton of pepper, there is a little more pepper in the taste then the nose
Palate: It is medium bodied, has a somewhat creamy feel, soft carbonation, and a dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression: This one feels like a combination of a Porter and a Rauchbier with a light pepper presence thrown in. Overall, that style combination works pretty well here. Though the peppers are subtle, they still add a nice component to the beer.

rougeau13 (2275) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Almost black with a big beige head with substantial lacing. Rather mild aroma of smoke, chipotle, and roast. The taste is roasty and a little bitter, but the chipotle character is a little disappointing. Medium bodied, a little dry. Good, but I expected better.

This was good. It is the first beer I’ve had with peppers added that I’ve enjoyed. It is also a variation to an already great beer that truly stands apart from the original. Roasted malt on the aroma with a hint of spice. Really dark but not with an overly thick head. The taste has a strong roasted and smokey covering that is followed by an earthy roasted pepper that blends so well. It is the one taste they lasts before being covered by another sip.

Bottle. Deep, dark and brooding as this beer should be. There’s a little bit of burning essence right up front. This drinks with a nice roasty base, the slight burn of the peppers augmenting well. Kind of a combo of good ol’ Rauch beer and a steady porter. (#4751, 8/28/2012)
