look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Dated best by 8/9/14. Poured into a goblet, a very dark dark red, slightly translucent. Very thin off white head. Aroma was smoky, with a hint of dark chocolate. Flavor was smoky, but also spicey. Mellowed out, and then pepper kicked back in with a hint of heat. Interesting flavor, definitely an acquired/desired taste. Felt thin, not overwhelmingly so, but with a bit of carbonation tingle. Overall definitely a sipper. Unique flavor, not in a bad way, but unique.

Served from bottle in tulip glass

A - A dark brown - almost black - body with a cafe-colored head.

S - Spicy coffee, smoke, and dark chocolate. This beer definitely has a kick to it!

T - First, chocolate, coffee, and even a hint of toffee. Then comes a sizable wave of spice. The finish is of smoke and a lingering chipotle spice that envelopes the mouth.

M - Pleasantly medium bodied with a lively carbonation.

O - This beer is remarkably well balanced - especially for a pepper-infused brew. The medium body and relatively low ABV make it perfect for a summer sip on the porch. Also, while the chipotles definitely provide some heat, this too is just right. Well done, Stone.

Picked up a bottle on the recommendation of the beer shop guy. I tend to be disappointed by Stone but took the recommendation. Good looking beer with a good smoke smell but seems a little off. Flavor is okay, but certainly not great, similar to smell there was something a bit off. The late bite from the peppers in interesting but not enough to change the fact that this is just an average porter with a twist.

3.78/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is close to being black in color—when held up to a bright light it appears very dark brown. It poured with a short tan head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of iodine from the smoke are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is dominated by Band-Aid like flavors that resemble iodine. The initial taste isn't that spicy, but the chipotle lends a hot kick to the finish. The spicy aftertaste seems to get stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The spiciness lends some kick to the taste.
O: I liked the spiciness that the chipotle lended to this beer, but felt like it had too much iodine. I would have enjoyed it better if it had more smoky flavors.
