22 oz bottle split with my husband.

A- Body is a dark brow hue. Pours with a 2-3 finger foamy off-white head that fades to a thin collar with little lacing left behind in the glass. When held up to the light brownish/red hues can be seen.

S- Chipotle is definitely the highlight of the nose. The traditional smokiness of the smoked porter comes through next, with sweet vanilla, roasted malt, and chocolate notes in the background.

T- Flavor is similar to the nose but does not offer the same softness and balance. The Chipotle is definitely the highlight, with smoke, vanilla, and chocolate in the background. The flavor is pretty consistent all the way through with a long lingering of chipotle peppers.

M- Carbonation is low to medium-but the peppers are somewhat assaulting in the mouthfeel. Medium to heavy weight body.

O- I love the stone smoked porter series- pretty much all of them. I also love chipotle-but this beer is much more aggressive than the others in the porter series. The heat from the peppers lingers on and on-which is a good thing-but it covers up the real complexity of this brew.

Poured into a snifter.

4.5 A: Dark brown black color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is very good and a dense ring of lacing is left behind.

3.5 S: I've never been a huge fan of the base beer because the smoke is so freaking weak. This is no different. It's there, just not enough. Light notes of chocolate and caramel. Mild-moderate roastiness. The pepper, I must say, is done quite well. It gives just a touch of heat, but more importantly a pleasant vegetal earthy pepper. Still, the nose is pretty tame overall.

3.75 T: Like the nose, the pepper runs the show. Just enough heat to get your lips tingling. Earthy vegetal pepper. Moderate roastiness with light chocolate and caramel.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Clean and quite smooth.

3.5 D: I like this version of the beer quite a bit. If only they buffed up the smoke.
