Smoke Bomb Imperial Smoked Chipotle Porter All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Although it may seem a bit unusual, the dark, rich flavors of porter are the perfect pairing for chipotle peppers. The peppers have a dark, dried fruit character that draws out the flavors of crystal malt, while the smokiness of the peppers adds depth and complexity to smoked malt. Add in subtle notes of roast and bittersweet chocolate delivered with a spicy kick and you got yourself a bold brew that sure to raise a few eyebrows.
Enjoy a recipe that clinched the Silver Medal at the highly competitive 2013 National Homebrew Competition.

Fantastic brew. Wish I would have went more and longer on the peppers. Went with 3 for 3 days. Should have used them all for probably 5 days. Great smoke hint and flavor. Will do this one again. Putting half on nitro soon
I've brewed this twice, and intend to work it into the rotation again soon. The first time I took the advice of the Deb Loch the NB employee who wrote the recipe and put half the included pepper in. Good, but not 'hot' enough for me. I felt that there was a little heat there, but it certainly wasn't the first thing I noticed. The next time I went all in and included everything. Just about perfect, as far as I'm concerned. So don't be afraid to spice it up. This is supposed to be spicy, so don't be scared!
I bought this on a whim. Don't really like flavored beers. Friends thought I was crazy when I described it. Wasn't crazy about the first bottle. BUT, it grows on you. Very nice rich underlayment, then a little burn at the back of your throat. Very smooth. Don't drink this with Mexican food...cheese and crackers will mellow the whole experience out. Ordering my second batch today.
