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 Rogues 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!

Measurements: 12 degrees Plato, IBU 35, Apparent attenuation 82, Lovibond 23

22 oz bomber (Chipotle Ale). Pours a medium copperish color with a small white head. Smells of spicy vegetables, primarily peppers. Taste is quite different than your normal beer. Almost has that spicy Doritos taste to it. Different ia the best way to describe this beer.

22 oz bomber: Medium copper amber w/ a lasting cream colored head. Smokey and slighlty rubbery aroma at first. Only hints of chipotle pepper as it warms, but become stronger as it goes. Caramel as it really warms & a bit of toasty malt. Well balanced and chipotel pepper flavor is pronounced, but restrained and does not dominate the flavor. Caramel up front with the pepper flavor fading into the back ground and finish as it goes down. Light fruitiness mid palate. Aftertaste is slightly spicy, literally, and lightly bitter w/ a smokey, chipotle flavor. Higher medium carbonation, smooth, w/a very light "heat" from peppers, and crisp w/ a lighter medium body. Wow, this might be one of the only SHV beers I like and could drink more than one of! Well balanced, and would go fantastically with anything smokey or spicy.

Dark copper color with no head. Smoky aroma and taste, much as you would expect. A mild malt base with a very small bit of spice is the only other taste I found. A subdued spice beer.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2005
This is totally different from anything else Ive had. The aroma is hard to pin down: smokey chipotle flavor makes it very difficult to pick up any of the other scents, theyre there, but buried. Appearance is pretty good... nice dark red/brown. Other than that, chipotle dominates flavor... it works pretty well, if you are a chipotle fan. If not, try something else, this ones not for you...

Holy god of death, this is the worst beer on the face of the planet. Its the first time Ive ever been unable to finish a beer. I wanted to vomit while drinking it.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2005
UPDATED: APR 1, 2008 Smokey aroma that also smells a little dirty. Light brownish red color. Little head. Watery burnt rubber. The only way I can describe it is to say that it probably wasnt a great beer to start with and the chipotle was just throwing heat on a beer that wasnt all that interesting to begin with.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Bottled under "Rogue Chipotle Ale". Initial taste is smoke and light, but crisp, hops. A subtle hot pepper taste builds in the back of the throat halfway through, continuing to build in the aftertaste. Aftertaste is even more smokey, more like charcoal, and the hops turn dry and piney. This smoldering combination of tastes reminds me of a barbeque. More citrus in the hop taste would have been great.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Hazey amber appearance, moderate head formation. Smokey (bacon) aroma, grainy. Smokey bacon on the palate, peppry flavor comes in late creating a lightly tingling spice in the afteraste. Fairly bitter/sour hoppy aftertaste. The chipotle (pepper and smoke) works really well, but aside from that theres not really much more.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2005
"Deep golden in color"??? Poured deep orangey amber with a nice khaki head...smell is fairly malty with some nice fruits like cherries and something citrus-like...smokey also...maybe something spicy, but I could be imagining that...wow...this is quite interesting to taste...tastes hoppy and spicy with peppers, quickly fading away with a wisp of smoke in the finish...not really good, but quite interesting...
