Stone Smoked Porter w/ Chipotle Peppers is a thing of spicy glory, with the just-right heat of smoked jalapeŮos (aka chipotles) that combines beautifully with the beerís 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 dark ruby red with two fingers of light brown head. Smells smoked, hints of chocolate, and very subtle Chipotle spice. Taste is Chipotle dominant with some smoke underneath. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers finishes with a very subtle Chipotle burn.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a 2 finger khaki head. The head doesnít hang around too long but leaves nice lacing on the glass. The smokey aroma has nice notes of roasted coffee beans and chocolate, with the slightest hint of pepper. The taste leans more towards the smokey side as well. Has a nice roasted quality with a touch of heat. Tastes like it just came off the grill. The heat kind of lingers in the mouth. Feels a bit strange, but Iím definitely enjoying it. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

Dark chocolate in color, or, better yet, black mud. cream head, moderate texture, thin. Aroma is a bbq dry tannin-filled smokiness with leather, light coffee, and hints of chilis. Body is medium, but with a heavy blanket of moderate texture, prickly carbonation, making it feel a bit lighter. Flavor is woody coffee, light dry smoke, and only hints of pepper, light malt sweetness. Refreshing hop bitterness. Delicious, perhaps better than the vanilla; Iíd have a touch time imagining it being better (itís been a couple of weeks since Iíve had it.) Certainly better than any other pepper beer Iíve had, especially the two Iíve attempted to brew.

First off, I am a fan of the basic Stone Smoked Porter. I like this beer too. I donít get a lot of heat from the chipotles, but chipotle is a smoky pepper. So this is kind of a smoky, smoked beer. That said, I really enjoyed it. Nice chocolate aroma with some light smoke. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Go Stone!!!

Pours dark brown-black with a moderate, tan head. Aroma definitely has some of the smoke and brine of chipotle peppers along with some coffee, toast, and dark chocolate. Nice start. Flavor is more akin to the original beer with plenty of toast, coffee, light smoke, and dark chocolate, but the finish is where the spice is felt and the pepper flavor is tasted. Thereís still an earthy hoppiness along with coffee, peat smoke, and toast flavors, but itís got a difference too. Medium bodied and easy to drink. I think chipotles are a wonderful ingredient when the spice doesnít overpower the dish theyíre in, and thatís case here. Integrated flavor and tasteful use of spice. Good stuff.

Pours a dark brown color with a large foamy brown head. Notes of bacon, smoke, chocolate, donuts, chilis, and ash. Interesting.

boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle... Poured deep dark, near black with a thick, beige/tan head. Nose had roast with a trace of smoke. More smoke was evident in the flavor with a hunt of peppers and spice. Mild to no heat from the peppers. Clean and nice finish. Roast, light malt sweetness and low bitterness. Nice acting smoked beer.

pineypower (2957) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours out a moderate brown color with little to no head. Aroma is of smoky chipotle, light chocolate, and some spicy notes. Taste is the smokier side of the chipotle, chocolate, light earthy smoke and not a whole lot of heat...nice beer, but I was looking for a lot more of the heat of the peppers.

12oz bottle 8/11/12 (Binnyís Downers Grove)-50į in English Pint-Pours black with ruby tints with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, coffee, and peppers. Taste of smoke, malt, coffee, chocolate, and pepper. I wish this medium bodied brew had a bit more pepper taste but this is still well balanced and quite tasty. Nice job.
