More than a few years ago I was in a pub and saw on the chalkboard "Special: liver and onions 12.99". When the waiter arrived I asked what was so special?
I have only disliked one beer so much I was quite confused and frustrated and that was a jalopena beer made long ago - but thankfully no more - by Garrison of Halifax. It burned the front of the mouth sharply leaving you no interest in having another sip. If you took a sip to make the taste go away, as one might out of instinct, the burn got worse.
Rogue's Chipotle Ale is no where near that bad. It is however, the only ale by Rogue I can imagine needing a special price to move off the shelf. The first taste was canned okra followed by the same smokey chipotle in Tabasco Chipotle sauce, a favorite of mine, followed by some sharp heat. The malt's sweetness does balance the rich hot pepper but the beer still asks the question "why?". It might make a good marinade for ribs but I am a bit lost as to why you would spend this much for that. What are you supposed to eat with this?
