1.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle shared with the drainage rocks beside my house. Drank half of this while enjoying a cigar. Poured the other half into the rocks beside my house. Looks like regular smoked porter, even has a similar odor. Taste is very different. The first few sips seem to be very good, refreshing, thick, with some odd flavor. After that it gets spicy and in turn nasty. I love spicy food; i currently have 4 habanero varieties growing in the back yard. I prefer spicy flavors in my food, not my drinks. A drainpour for me. Even my driveway hated it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tan frothy head. Aroma isn’t particularly smokey nor peppery. Initial flavor is of the smoke. However, the peppers build up on the back end, yet not overly overpowering. Normally I don’t go in for chipotle, but this isn’t half bad.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average to large brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate smoke malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark pepper roasted smoked flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex standout beer

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!!!
