Dedicated to Spanish author Juan de la Cueva, who, in 1575, wrote of a Mexican dish that combined seedless chipotles with beer: Chipotle Ale is based on Rogueís Oregon Golden Ale, but delicately spiced with smoked chipotle chile peppers. Deep golden in color with a tight head, rich malty aroma, delicately smooth and crisp flavor, and subtle chipotle chili finish. Formerly known and packages as Mexicali Rogue, Chipotle Ale is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, and Maier Munich Malts; Willamette and Cascade hops; and Smoked Jalapeno (Chipolte) Peppers. Chipotle Ale is targeted for spring release and available in a 22-ounce bottle and on draft. Blend it with Rogue Chocolate Stout and create a Moleí black and tan!

Poured under a Chipotle tap at the Rogue brewing house in Portland. I loved it! Aroma had chipotle in it, taste had chipotle in it. Dark golden appearance. Definately lots of spiciness, but not in hotness. Although its not overly complex, I would have it again to compliment some spicy mexican food any time.

This is a pretty interesting beer. Iíve tried it as Mexicali and under the Chipotle alias. Very creamy mouthfeel. Not a hot spicy, just flavored with peppers. Compliments spicy fried chicken well. Another good beer from Rogue but not one of their best.

Pours deep golden with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of malt and peppers. Taste is thick malt. Very full mouth feel. The hops and pepper flavors combine very nice. This beer deserves more credit than it is given.

Not a bad Rogue. (I havenít had a bad one yet). This is a well balanced beer, nice malty aroma and flavor. Goes down smooth. I thought do to the name it would be hot tasting, but it was spicy not hot. After a few min. I did get a warming sensation in my stomach, but not unpleasent. Wouldnít want to drink on a hot day. I prefer this type of beer in cold weather.

Pailhead (6016) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle: Malty aroma with a little spice. Pours a real dark transparent amber with an off-white head that has a little staying power. Lght and malty up front with a peppery spice and nice smoke finish. The smokiness seems to linger into a moderate smoke aftertaste. A little hops in there. Definitely worth a try. Real creamy and smooth mouthfeel.

On tap at Rogue Public House in Portland, Oregon on 2/12/05. Itís interesting enough, but the smoke flavor overpowers nearly everything. I rated the palate high because of the "slow burn" that happens at the end. Very peppery and well-executed for what it is, but it just didnít excite me.

More old notes, Bottle from Johnís Marketplace. Ok nose, Lite orange, carmel , some spicy heat. Clear orange color. No head. Bitter flavors, Lite grapefruit/orange. Little roasty. peppery. Thin body, watery mouthfeel, slighlty roasty bitter finish. I remember this having more zip, though that was when I though Sam Adams Boston ale was the the way to go.

I like hot food and beer, but I donít like hot(spicy) beer. It burned the back of my throat and it just turned me off.

Pours a light amber with a thin white head. Malty, spicy aroma. A lot of malt to the flavor....I wish there could have been a little more hop to it. The peppers donít come out as much in the flavor as I would have liked, but you can definitely feel them in your throat after drinking it. Overall, I definitely enjoy it, but it doesnít really compare to the other Rogue Ales. I commend them for trying something like this, though, and have it come out decent.
