Rogue Ales Chipotle Ale

Spicy foods and especially drink is something that I like. Really brings out the flavors in foods when you spice it up. I have Rogue Ales Chipotle Ale, 5.4% ABV, which is brewed with Chipotle Peppers, 2-Row, C40 Malts, Rogue Farms Dare & Risk Malts, Rogue Farms Liberty, &Alluvial Hops, Free Range Coastal Water & Packman Yeast. Chipotle Ale pours an Amber color with an off white semi beige three and a half finger head. The aroma is faintly spiced with peppers and there is a bit of malts there as well with a slight faint sweetness. Taste isn’t what you’d expect from this spiced pepper ale. It’s delicately spiced with some faint malt flavor. Chipotle Ale tastes a bit like a rauchbier. The mouth feel is medium with a warming finish that leads into a more spicy jalapeno finish that get spicier has it fades. This beer wasn’t what I thought it was going to be and was good, A- good. I would’ve liked to have a bit more Chipotle spice, but what was there was still good. I also like that the chipotle peppers weren’t over powering and too spicy. The spicy finish was a good bit as well. This is a great beer and adding Chipotle peppers to this Amber ale made it good with out over powering the entire beer and ruining it. I recommend Rogue Ales Chipotle Ale. It’s good! Cheers! Please enjoy responsible!
