Notes / Commercial Description:
In 2006, Chris Carroll, a longtime member of Team Stone, took that adage literally, proposing that we produce a one-off version of our venerable Stone Smoked Porter made spicy from the addition of chipotle peppers. We gave it a shot and found that those smoked jalapeños melded quite naturally with the smoldery peat-smoked malt that gives the beer its flavor and moniker, creating a deep, roasty quaff with a carefully restrained tingle of tasteful capsaicin heat in the finish. The marriage of ingredients was so nice that it has become an annual summertime staple, released each May in honor of Carroll’s initial idea that Stone Smoked Porter w/Chipotle Peppers serve as an artisanal alternative to the industrialized adjunct-laden cerveza billed as the perfect fluid accompaniment to the sunny season. Cheers to variety and a quality alternative to mediocrity.

Poured Smoked Porter w/Chipotle Peppers into a pint glass.

A - Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights with a finger of mocha head.

S - First sniff getting roasted malts. Not much else on the second.

T - Whoa, different here. Nice smooth dark roasted flavors, some smoked malt. Mid palate some coffee with more smokey malts. On the finish, here it comes the heat and spice from the peppers.

M - Nice for a porter, medium all the way.

O - Nice smoked porter, the complexity it outstanding. Recommended! Cheers!
