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!

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!!!

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, spicy peppers and a smoky finish. The taste is roasted malts, smoke, vanilla, smoke and mild chipotle heat on the finish. Medium bodied.

TURDFERGUSON (4006) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2012
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.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Cola-like dark brown pour with a foamy khaki head. The aroma at first is rather faint smoke but becomes more prominent very quickly. Very nice integration of smoke flavor that seems to take over but at the same time is not overwhelming. After a few sips the heat from the chipotle peppers creeps up in the background. Truthfully, going into this I thought the combination was a bit odd and did not expect to like it. However, the chipotle peppers are integrated quite nicely and bring the smoke to the front while allowing a subtle, yet increasing, amount of heat to lay in the back of the throat. Nicely done.

arminjewell (7901) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brings notes of pepper, chocolate, roast, smoke, hints of sweet caramel, some dark fruit notes as well. Taste is a mix of sweet dark fruits, chocolate, some chili notes going into coffee and roast, some pepper and slice, finishing fairy sweet.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black pour with a foamy tan head. Smoky and roasted malt aroma. Wasn’t sure if it was the smoked porter itself or the chipotles. Couldn’t really discern one from the other. Flavor is a nice chocolate and roasted malt beginning with a very nice and subtle smoke note. Again, couldn’t really find the chipotle flavor. Still good.
