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.
