Rogue – Chipotle Ale – 4.5 out of 7


I don’t really like pepper beers, but when smoke is involved, SmokeBeerMinistry gets involved, and this one is tasting pretty good. Not too peppery, and even less smoky… Wait, this tastes REALLY peppery, and slightly smoky. I’m drinking. Undeniably chipotle peppery, and it just so happens, I like chipotle. Maybe this is a gateway pepper beer… actually, you’d better not be on the fence before trying this one. Look, I’ve been drinkin. I don’t know. Focus. The spice hits the back of my throat. Rogue makes good beer. They should revive their smokebeer. This is good. Needs more smoke. Little bitter. Floral nose. Overall = 4.5 out of 7.
