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.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours deep brown with a slight ruby hue with a khaki head that laces fairly well.

S: Nice roasty malt with some chipotle spice, and a little smoke.

T: Nice roasted malt, a little light coffee, solid chipotle hit with a little warmth, but by no means overwhelming, some smoke, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, quite smooth with a little warmth.

O: Great twist on an old classic.
