Rogue Ales Rogues Farms Chipotle Ale Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer at 5.0% ABV
Pours a clear amber with two fingers of off-white head diminishing gradually to a thick ca and heavy lacing. Nose is… bizarre: smoky green jalapeños, caramel malt, and something I can’t identify. Taste follows, with a moderate spiciness that grows as the pint progresses. Medium body, low carbonation, and an off-dry finish.
I’m sorry, this is nasty. As in, sink pour territory – and I don’t generally do that, plus I love spicy food. This just doesn’t work. Save your time and money and don’t bother. I’m coming to the conclusion that this is a brewery that you can’t blindly support. Some of their brews just don’t work, and this is the poster child for that.
