look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz bottle into snifter.

A: Dark mahogany brown with some slight red tint. Two finger off white foamy head with nice retention and lacing.

S: Light smoke, roasted malts, some coffee, hot sauce.

T: Roasted malts mixed with all kind of peppers. Lots of roasty and smoked goodness. Everything you want in a nice porter with big pepper heat.

M: Thin and dry as expected. Typical of a good porter.

O: Much like the standard smoked porter from Stone, this is very nice and easy drinking. The peppers bring a big punch of flavor to the party. It borders on overpowering the rest of the brew.

22oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out a really dark ruby brown color. Light tan head with average retention. Spotty lace.

Smoke is big and foremost on the aroma. A little bit of campfire with a hint of smoked meat. Not really picking up much pepper.

Much better taste. Nice balance of smoke and heat. Peat smoke with a little campfire, a touch of a jalapeño flavor with good Heat. Hints of lighter roasted malt. A bit of a lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

Light to medium in body. Maybe could've used a touch more body, but then again it is a porter.

A nice take on this classic beer. The chipotles showed nicely which doesn't always happen in beers like this.

Hard for me to review this beer, because I am just straight up not a fan of the whole "spicy pepper in beer" thing that has been going on lately. I just don't get it; spice and beer are not flavors that suit eachother in my opinion. That being said, the beer is well made: all of the things you would expect from a good smoked porter are there. Roasty malts, coffee and bitter chocolate, silky smooth texture, dark as pitch... And then there's some spice and chipotle flavor. Totally kills it for me.

Overall, well made beer, just not my thing.

A: pours a dark brown almost black with a tan head that went down quickly. Clear
S: roasted malt, lager yeast smell, smell a little pepper,
T: heat and chipotle definitely come through, very toasty flavor, was not expecting to be that much chipotle pepper flavor as it doesn't come through on the nose as much, also a little smoky, it's kinda like roasted peppers in a glass
M: medium bodies, medium carbonation
O: wow is there a lot of heat in this thing
