Poured from a bottle into my indian wells brewing pint glass.
Looks dark with a bit of brown tint around the edges when held up to the light. The head is a tan color which is minimal and dissipates quick upon pour.
The smell is very malt forward, dark roasted malts with a bit of smokiness intermingled. Tough to distinguish the chipotle though I just get a bit of hotness on the back end.
The flavor starts out as the traditional smoked porter, the roasted malts are more muted than usual though. This fades nicely into a mild chipotle flavor, the smokiness from the peppers and the smoked malt definitely blend well and give you a nice end product.
Smooth mouthfeel, a bit hot on the back end if you're not used to spice but much more tame than I would have imagined stone going for, more chipotle!

This one pours a dark brown leading to black with a nice off white head that settles very slow and leaves nice lacing down the glass.
The nose is excellent spicy and sweet with a tinge of sourness to the complexity that has hints of bread, alcohol and malt.
The taste is very nice with some of the tastes leading towards a variety of bitters. The chipotle is definitely there with notes of bread, nice bittering hops and a sweet malty undertone.
The moutfeel is fairly rich and a good match for this unique experience.
Overall this is a great result for an unexpected blend of Chipotle and porter. A very enjoyable and different experience with a nice bitter finish.

Enjoyed on tap at Beef O'Brady's in Newburgh, IN.
Pint poured a dark brown, almost opaque black into a Stone etched pint glass, with very little lace.
Aroma subtle, not much in the way of smokiness, porter malts, or pepper, somehow.
Taste is roasty and chocolate at first, followed by definite chipotle heat. Balance is good though... heat works well against the roastiness.
