COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pours amber with an offwhite head. Smoke and bacon, and a tiny spicy sub-note. I probably wouldnít have detected it if I didnít know this was a chipotle beer though, which is fine, because I donít like spicy stuff that much. Decent brew.

First off Iím rating Rogue Farms Chipotle Ale, but was redirected here. 650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours hazy Amber color, with a slight beige head that died out very quickly. Smells like caramel or toffee. Taste was pleasant; there is a sweet taste at first but then the chipotle kicks in. Not overpowering like some other Mexican stouts Iíve had. Itís a good beer.

Desverger (7718) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen - dark golden pour with off-white head. Aroma and taste starts sweet malty with notes of caramel, but then the spicy peppery taste kicks in, some heat building, some smokey backing, touch to spicy sweet to drink in high amounts for me, but sample was interesting enough to try nonetheless.

Hazy tan orange in color... Aroma of light peppers, biscuity malts, caramel... Flavor is actually mostly biscuity and caramel malt forward, only slightly peppery... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samtzu (122) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2016
650ml bottle. Strong spiced flavors with a slight malt aftertaste. Having never tried Chipotle before I was not sure what to expect. Interesting beer but not quite to my taste.

Bottle, SX Bottle Share, 5/34/2016 Golden colour. Off-white lacing. Sheer Jalepenos on aroma. Some honey and spring dew as well. Taste is old school IPA, hot chili, hot finish. Meh. Not my kinda thing. Donít really get this one. Sorry!

jjsint (2181) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
On tap at the Cambridge Winter Ales Festival 2016. Honey brown with a slight ring of white head. Aroma produces some chilli but also strawberry jam, cereal and wood shavings. Sweet-savoury chilli taste with a pronounced sour note in the finish. Slight pine and maple syrup suggestions as the sip slips away. Subtly warming chilli on the lips. Aftertaste is a bit glue-y, not sure about that. Good all in all and worth a try.

Shot (411) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a creamy thin white head. Aromas of sweet caramel malt and slight vegetables. Flavors are grass, smokey crackery notes, sweet malt, tobacco, vegetable notes and a slight hot pepper burn. Thin but creamy mouthfeel. Actually, a well-made beer, but the addition of chipotle peppers takes the flavor in a direction that isnít terribly enjoyable. This reminds me of a rauchbier crossed with a lager. Without the peppers, this would be a pretty delicious ale.

tmoreau (3568) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing an orangey gold, almost amber color, with some soft white head foam that reduced expeditiously to a ring & film, and left some wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light smoke & pepper that presented a bit of betadine/Band-Aid scent, with some light fruit involved. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included moderate & lingering, earthy bitterness, with dryness, and "better late than never" pepperiness to the finish. Okay, but the introduction disappointed.

Pours clear copper color with off white head. Aromas of caramel and peppers with some smokiness. Smoked pepper flavor with slight heat and some caramel. Medium body with average carbonation. Better than I was expecting.
