Rogue Chipotle Ale

Poured from the bomber and was greeted with a deep amber color beer. There was a thin off white head that sat atop the brew that quickly settled to a scant foamy film across the top. Not much lacing at all. (Is this from the oils that were in the peppers?)

I enjoy cooking and have used canned chipotles on several occasions. There is no secret what the aroma is... Chipotle Peppers all the way mixed with a slight malt aroma. The smoky aroma that comes from the chipotles is quite intriguing.

I have to admit that I'm really enjoying this beer. It almost seems that the malt notes are balanced with the smokiness & spiciness of the chipotles vs. the traditional hops.

I timed this tasting/review to go along with a spicy Buffalo Chicken appetizer that we are having. I tried the beer first and now am enjoying both together. I have to say the pairing is excellent.

Mouth feel is fairly light but seems bigger due to the smoky/spicy nature of the beer.

The finish is more of a lingering spiciness with very subtle hop notes.

I really like this.

I would highly recommend pairing with the proper food. Not sure I'd drink this on its own. But for the specific spicy occasion this is perfect.

Note - I've let three other family members try this with the spicy appetizer and all three really enjoyed it.

Get it the next time you have guests and intend to serve a spicy dish.
