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!

Bomber from Whole Paycheck. Dark brown with a lasting beige head. Aroma slightly weak, roast, smoke, peppers. Roasty chipotle flavor. Dry with slight bitterness. Palate medium, maybe a tad watery. Good but not great.

Tap at Marciero. Wonderful nose of smoked malt and roasted peppers. Deep reddish-brown color. Great smoke flavor, peppers are hot but moreso are very flavorful and smoky, a bit like roasted red peppers. Still not my kind of thing, but this is well done.

stevoj (2028) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bomber from Brewer’s Haven. Pours inky black/muddy brown with small beige head. Faint pepper aroma on top of usual roasted malts. pepper becomes more apparent in the taste, with a little lingering spiciness on the tongue. Not quite as spicy as Crime, which is a good thing.

badwhale (352) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a medium to full brown, with a good tan head. It kinda smells like a bag of dog food. Like a grain, smokey smell. The peppers really come through. Too much. Light mouthfeel. Smokey, smokey malt flavor, but this doesn’t do it for me when you’re expecting a PORTER.

22oz bottle pours a dark black color with a bit of head. Smokiness. Burning hot chili at the end that lingers.

Block (1337) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This beer has the very distinctive Stone Smoked Porter aroma and initial flavor. There’s some consistency there. A bit of spice at the finish. Not too much but just enough for you to know there is a hot addition. This beer complimented a meal very well.

Lukaduke (2070) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a slightly translucent umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of earthy smokey pepper, light chocolate, some roasted malt. Palate follows with nice balance of smoke spice and bitterness . Nice carbonation on the mouthfeel and a long complex finish. What I was hoping for when I saw it hit the shelf.... So much more integration of peppers I than the heavy handed vanilla version!

OldGrowth (2625) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle, from Triangle Wine Morrisville. Good aroma. Sweet, chocolate, peat, chipotle pepper. Dark orange brown color good head that faded to soft cover, spotty lace. Sweet spiced flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet warm finish. Pretty nice, flavor is the best part for me, like the heat sweet mix. Aroma not as interesting

A clear brown Porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nice smoked chocolate malt with a peated character, musky notes, nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity chocolate malt with a bit of a burn, herbaceous hops, very nice. Bottle at OttBottleShare July 2014.
