22oz bottle. Pours a blackish dark brown color with an inch of very light brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is smoke, charred wood, spicy peppers and earth. The taste is the spicy chipotle peppers upfront as well as some charcoal and smoke. Some peat as well. Finishes with the heat of the peppers and nice mellow spicy aftertaste. Hints of dark chocolate as the beer warms. Light mouthfeel with alot of carbonation. Just like the Vanilla Bean one it is a nice variation but the original Stone Smoked Porter is still the best to me. Still this is a good Porter that isn't overly spicy or hot. Overall, worth trying at least once.

The pour reveals a dark brown body with the darkest of ruby hues beneath the abundant tan head which dissolves to leave only faint traces of lacing behind.
The aroma is very similar to the regulars owed porter with charred malt and wood notes, grainy malts, dark bread, and a hint of vanilla.
Now we are talkin'- the flavor lays the chipotle on the palate pretty thick. A nice smooth, yet fiery finish yet maintaining the charred wood and malt notes of the traditional smoked porter. As the beer warms the chipotle really heats up.
Medium in body with medium to lighter carbonation and a dose of heat on the finish.
As advertised, especially on the palate, this smoked porter is generous on the chipotle. As it warms it may be just a touch too much so. Yet tasty nonetheless.
