Stone Smoked Porter w/ Chipotle Peppers is a thing of spicy glory, with the just-right heat of smoked jalapeos (aka chipotles) that combines beautifully with the beers 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!

ben4321 (6134) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 8/30/12

Aroma: The aroma has lots of smoked malts/meat, burnt malts, and some peppery notes
Appearance: Pours a deep, dark drown color with a smooth froth of light brown head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor of the one, like the nose, is also heavy malty, with lots of roasted/burnt flavors, some medium-plus smoke, and, while not a ton of pepper, there is a little more pepper in the taste then the nose
Palate: It is medium bodied, has a somewhat creamy feel, soft carbonation, and a dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression: This one feels like a combination of a Porter and a Rauchbier with a light pepper presence thrown in. Overall, that style combination works pretty well here. Though the peppers are subtle, they still add a nice component to the beer.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Almost black with a big beige head with substantial lacing. Rather mild aroma of smoke, chipotle, and roast. The taste is roasty and a little bitter, but the chipotle character is a little disappointing. Medium bodied, a little dry. Good, but I expected better.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2012
This was good. It is the first beer Ive had with peppers added that Ive enjoyed. It is also a variation to an already great beer that truly stands apart from the original. Roasted malt on the aroma with a hint of spice. Really dark but not with an overly thick head. The taste has a strong roasted and smokey covering that is followed by an earthy roasted pepper that blends so well. It is the one taste they lasts before being covered by another sip.

Braudog (6579) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle. Deep, dark and brooding as this beer should be. Theres a little bit of burning essence right up front. This drinks with a nice roasty base, the slight burn of the peppers augmenting well. Kind of a combo of good ol Rauch beer and a steady porter. (#4751, 8/28/2012)

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Very good porter, with a slight hint of the pepper. Its very subtle. The regular smoked porter is very roasty, dark, smooth, easy to to drink and with a light body. Its very easy drinking. The chipotle is enters at the end of the palate and adds some slight pepper.

beerbastard (843) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Very black with tan head. Aromas are subtle smoke and roasted malts. The flavors are more robust, smoke upfront with burnt malts followed by peppers. The lite sting of the peppers move into the finish, leaving a spicy mouthfeel. This a fun beer and could have some real possibilities with food pairing

obguthr (6173) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Smoke and tree bark nose, savory, campfire. Clear cola pour, thick tan head, some lacing. Smoke flavor, with soot in the end. Thinnish mouthfeel. A slight sweetness that doesnt belong at all. Really no chipotles to be found. I have some issues with this one. Its certainly not at the level of quality I expect from Stone. Didnt deliver on the peppers, has no body, and is a tad too sweet.

TheBeerGod (6167) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Black bodied with a medium, frothy tan head. Aroma is smoky and peppery but kind of smells like roasted malt, spicy smoked meat and pepperjack cheese rolled into one. Taste is smokey with more roasted malt, soft peppery spices and heat, smoked meat notes, faint coffee and fainter chocolate. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a pleasant mild warmth from the peppers. Finishes with more roasted malt, smoke, smoked meat notes, hot peppers, spice and light coffee.

gramity (1634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
RBAG Summer Session 2012. 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 its very subtle. Medium bodied, maybe a tad over carbonated with minimal smoke and roast. Kinda bland, but drinkable.
