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!

GBBF. Cask. Opaque brown beer. Small tan head. Mild dark malt. Minerals. Trace of chocolate. Big chilli burn starts in the mid and keeps going. Bearable! But this could have been good if they had backed of on the chilli a bit. And then a bit more!

Draught at Churchkey. This one had lots and lots of chipotle, not subtle at all, but certainly a genuine flavor that complements the smoke.
