Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers

Oh Stone, how I love you. Not only do you consistently brew a delicious Smoked Porter every year, you also up the ante by experimenting with new flavors to add to it. First there was Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean and now Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers. I even found out today that there is a variation with Coconut, which I still have yet to try. But back to the beer of today; Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers.

Split this 12 ounce bottle with Tom of course, my beer buddy. Right after opening the bottle we gave it a smell. The smoked aroma had a hint of pepper and poured a dark brown to black color identical to that of the Smoked Vanilla. The smell was good, but the flavor was out of this world.

The smoked flavor of Stone's Porter is amplified even more with the addition of Chipotle Peppers. It's almost a perfect combination. Both flavors compliment each other and result in a delicious smoked Chipotle taste you might find while enjoying food from your favorite Mexican eatery.

Tom and I couldn't get enough of Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers. Every sip we took was breathtaking. We were just sad when it was all gone. We even ended up going to Taco Bell after finishing our glasses since my craving for Mexican food was through the roof at that point. I don't know if it was the beer itself or the fact that it was brewed with Chipotle Peppers, but I wasn't going to sleep that night without ingesting some Taco Bell.

Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers is spectacular and I'll even go as far to say that it was better than Stone's Smoked Vanilla offering, which I also liked a lot. If you can find a bottle of it definitely try some smoked Chipotle Pepper beer.

Delicious to the very last sip
