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!

Poured from a bomber to a shaker pint glass. Deep brown with thick tan head. Light smoke and boozy aroma with minimal chocolate note. Coffee/roast flavor with a nicely balanced spice/heat from the chipotle as an after flavour.

Poured from bomber into pint glass. The aroma is a bit disagreeable, with a pungent pepper and smoke flavor that is less appetizing than it is foul. The flavor is solid though. Moderate smoke with a mild spicy bite. I would like it to be hotter, but it was still hotter than I expected. Though the beer is kinda straightforward and not very complex, it executes what it sets out to do.

Kavu (2439) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2014
12 fl. oz. on tap @ The Lower Depths. Pours very dark brown with a low off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, smoked ham and chipotle. Flavor is roasted malts, smoked ham and lots of chipotle in flavor and burn. Good balance. One of the best chili-beers I’ve ever had.

Alpha10 (363) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
2014/12/02 - Pours a clear, dark brown-amber colour with a frothy, khaki head that quickly reduces. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and sweet toasted malts. Taste is dark chocolate, semi sweet malts, roasted coffee, smoke and a hint of spicy peppers. Mouthfeel is medium with mildly biting carbonation. Finish is dry and mildly bitter with a touch of chili heat. Nice balance between semi sweet malt, smoke and spicy peppers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalchopz (2409) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Stone limited summer edition purchased in Vermont. Pours a deep brown-copper colour with a creamy beige head, great retention and lots of lacing. Sweet malty aromas with some mild roasted one in the background and light spicy spices. Hints of dark fruits. The taste is where you feel the chipotle peppers with some mild spicy warm feeling in the finish. Not sweet for the rest, but just light roasted malts. Wish I would of tried this one fresher as it seems milder, but overall another great brew from Stone.

BazookaJoe (259) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Pours black with some of the smoke in the aroma. Lots of roast and smoke in the flavor with the chipotle peppers coming in later and staying on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. What an incredible brew. Everything the Smoked Porter is already with an incredible and balanced chipotle backing throughout the whole brew. Spicy finish. Delicious.

Sweet soft taste with a subtle spiciness from the peppers! Dark pre. Dessert porter, delicious! Needs maybe a little more heat...
