A: Cola color with cola head
S: I don't pick up on the chipotle; toasty but not smokey, chocolate
T: I never get the same smoke quality from the Stone Smoked Porter as I do from German smoked beers; however, the chipotle imparts a nice smoky aftertaste in this one. Chipotle heat is not apparent at first, but it pleasantly builds.
I don’t usually enjoy porters, but this was really good. It was much better than the vanilla porter. Typically, I don’t think about pairing beers with food, but I bet this would be good with a grilled cheese or fruit. The guy at the beer store said it makes really good boracho beans.
This beer made me think. I appreciate that.
I'll have another.
