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 Rogue’s 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 Mole’ black and tan!

I love spicy stuff, but don’t mess with my beer. I seriously felt like I drank a beer that someone puked in.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Colore ambra con schiuma sottile bianca. Al naso un po? piatta, mentre al palato si avverte subito il peperoncino e una punta affumicata. Carbonazione media. Finale piccante.

Berard (633) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle. Pours golden brown but murky with very little head. No aroma over medium carbonation. Taste of tobacco with the mildest burn. Not a great ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First off I’m 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 I’ve had. It’s a good beer.

Desverger (8735) - 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.

Samtzu (217) - 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. Don’t really get this one. Sorry!

jjsint (2379) - 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.
