4.13/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Dark brown, with reddish tint. Head doesn't last long, but it is somewhat sticky.

Smell - The smells are incredible on this porter. The main thing here is that it is smoky, smoky, smoky! Notes of chocolate and coffee are definitely present as well. But the chipotle pepper smokiness comes through very strong, along with some peat smoke.

Taste - Again, huge smokiness. Smoked/roasted malts give some coffee. The heat kicks in after a few sips. By the time you are half-way through, it becomes intriguingly spicy (but not too much). I notice some bold, spicy chocolate, but the most notable flavor is the chipotle pepper. No alcohol burn in this one either, it's just peppers. Somehow, the chipotles are very present, but I would still consider this to be a very well balanced beer.

Mouth - Medium body on this porter, slightly carbonated.

Overall - Stone Smoked Porter has always been one of my favorite porters, and I feel that the chipotle peppers are a wonderful addition. I had this one poured from a bottle into a snifter glass. Can't wait to drink another!

3.74/5  rDev -1.6%
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.
