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!

Bottle. Pours deep brown to black with a small tan head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, smoke, coffee and just a touch of chili aroma. Taste is roasted malt, smoke, with a bit of chili coming on in the middle and lingering to the finish. No real heat though.

On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a dark ruby with large creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is smoke roast and chipotle. Medium mouthfeel with dry smoke and chipotle with light chocolate and lingering dry smoke finish. A good variation of the smoked porter.

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.

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.

12 oz. bottle from BevMo - Pours a clear brown color with a one and a half finger thick light tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is light smoke and faint peppers. Flavor is lightly roasted malt, smoke, and a hint of peppers. Not much heat. Medium body. A nice beer.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2012
A black colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of smoked malt, some coffee with spices. The taste of smoked malt a little bitter coffee. A subtle pepper taste, a little burny. The aftertaste is some sweet, bitter with a small burny pepper taste.

mmmbeer (1426) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2012
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!!!
