3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Like any good beer connoisseur would do, I’m trying the Chipotle version of Stone’s contentions porter series. Really enjoying this one, and the pepper hits pretty hard on the back end. When it’s all said and done, I think I just like their "everyday" smoked porter the best.

Half pint at DH- served as black as hell, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of peppers, smoke, vanilla. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt was burnt to hell but loved every minute of it, pepper, heat, and smoke in the middle, finish has fading smoke, tobacco, and hot steamy sex rounding it out. Oh yeah!!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thick and steady light beige head. nose is fairly muted, some light vanilla, cocoa, smoke, very mild chipotle. Flavor shows a bit more of the pepper but again it's very subtle. Medium bodied, maybe a tad over carbonated with minimal smoke and roast. Kinda bland, but drinkable.

Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours cola dark brown with a thin but persistent tan head. Nose of charred wood, chocolate malts, and mildly fruity peppers. Taste adds just a bit of heat and more interesting flavors from the added chipotle. Great version of this beer.
