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!

Poured from a bomber into a "Rogue Chipotle" glass. It is just a goblet with a stem that looks like a cactus. Copper/amber color, opaque. Light head that was just dusting the surface. Smell: First some malt and then the chipotle. Very distinct chipotle smell. I usually do not like fruit in my beer, but this smells really nice. Slightly sweet at first, followed by the chipotle pepper. Enough spice to know it is there but not obnoxious or overpowering. Soft at first, then bubbly carbonation, followed by a crisp finish. I liked the soft start and crisp finish, but a little less carbonation would be better. Oh, the peppers heat stays on the lips for awhile afterward. Very good and drinkable. I love the spiceiness and smell. This is probably the only beer with a fruit added that I really liked.

Yikes. The smoke in the grain just overpowers everything. Theres possibly a decent beer under there but I cant find it.

The base beer is pretty good, hints of belgian styles underneath. But the spices are quite peppery, tabaco-like, and smoky. Probably won't buy again, but worth a try. Bottle from sobeys.

Strong chipotle aroma, Mexican food! Cloudy copper. Chipotle flavor up front without the spice/heat. A bit one dimensional but if youre into chipotle youre sure to enjoy this.

Bomber from Total Wine, Gainesville. Slightly hazy deep amber with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus, smoke, and pepper. Flavor is definitely smoky, followed by some citrus, and finally some pepper heat. Kinda bland... was expecting more.
