I like hot chiles, I could use a six pack of this over the winter. There is taste there, however one-dimensional chiles with a smoke offering. Had again seven months later, and similarly liked the strong taste. Perhaps I am a contrarian, but I also like Canadian garlic beer.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of smoked malt, band-aid, chipotle pepper, and slight fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with smoke, chipotle, and fruity flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a smoke and chipotle presence that comes across better in the flavor, but it lacks any sort of heat for a chile beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Shimmering, juicy orange with intimations of copper and edges of gold bullion. If a color can suggest quality, this one does. The cream colored head is as foamtastic as most other Rogue offerings. It's thickly creamy and is semi-rocky as it melts. Even though I'd like more lace, that borders on nitpicking when the color and the head are this good.

I don't know that I'd have been able to identify this as a chile beer by scent alone. Yeah, it's spicy, but chile pepper wouldn't have been high on my list of guesses. There isn't much to go on. I guess that chipotle peppers carry a small stick when it comes to aroma, a big stick when it comes to flavor and an even bigger stick when it comes to heat. Thankfully, with warming, the nose opens up a little.

Chipotle Ale isn't bad, although I'm not blown away by the flavor or the heat. According to the brewery, Rogue Oregon Golden Ale serves as the base beer. That seems like a good, neutral choice that would allow (in theory at least) the flavor of the roasted peppers to shine. The beer is well-malted with a slightly sweet underbelly that goes well with a modest hoppy bitterness and a less than awe inspiring amount of spicy heat.

The hop bill consists of Willamette and Cascade. The bright citrusiness of the latter is another nice counterpoint to the earthy pepper flavor. This beer is all about contrasts. It's just too bad the contrasts aren't more pronounced. The flavor lacks the zestiness that should be a major part of any chile beer. It isn't like these guys to ease off the accelerator.

It must have been difficult to decide how much chile pepper to add. Too little and why bother? Too much and you've recreated the abomination that is Crazy Ed's Cave Creek Chile Beer. In my opinion, Rogue should have upped the flavor and heat by at least 50%. I have a minimal burn going, although it's really more of a warm tickle. I've come to expect quality mouthfeels from this brewery and I've yet to be disappointed. This one is medium, lithe, supple and is a pleasure in the mouth.

Chile beer tends to be polarizing. Looking at some of the scores, Chipotle Ale is no different. On this one, however, I find myself gravitating toward some middle ground. I think I want more of a chipotle presence, but I'm not sure if I'd like the beer that I'm suggesting they brew. If anyone out there is worried about overwhelming roasted pepper flavor and mouth numbing heat, don't be. This is a relatively tame chile beer and, in the end, is an enjoyable one.

always a fan of chili beers i was thrilled when i saw this one pop up on our shelves. poured into a pint glass.

nice dark amber pour, bordering on a light brown with a smooth, even and small head that did its best to not really fade that much at all. aroma is lots of earth grains, light hops and a touch of rye like spice, not much pepper at all in the aroma, this comes much later. as you take a sip it has all the marks of a nicely done esb or amber, but gives you that nice kick of chili pepper in the finish that lets you know its there. spicy with a definite nice hit, this was very well recieved.

overall done very nice as the chili is reserved for the finish where it should be, overall an excellent beer i have to say.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper color with a frothy head that hangs around as a thick ringlet while depositing all kinds of lacing around the glass

Smell: Mellow smoked aroma wafts up from that malty base; a vague whiff of canned chipotles en adobo as well

Taste: Malty backbone is quickly subsumed by the smoked chili flavor; the heat builds on the tongue with each sip and eventually becomes the only distinctive flavor

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: This would be a fun novelty in a 12 oz. bottle; in a bomber, it is a tough beer to finish

Bottle courtesy of Adrian910ss: Poured a medium amber color ale with a nice foamy head with quite good retention. Aroma of light chilli is interesting and less prominent then expected. Taste of subtle spicy chilli is very interesting and not gross at all. Some smoky flavours are also noticeable and enjoyable with a medium hoppy finish that complements very well this beer. This beer was way better then expected and I’m glad I had the chance to try this.

Session: 6/17/07
A good revisit to this beer. The pour delivered an excellent amber color with a frothey, impressive head retention. Bold amber, toasty, malty-sweetness set the foundation for all of the creativity to follow. As the beer progresses, the intensity of the chilis rose to pronounced levels, but never dominated the beer. This occurs equally in aroma and flavor. The character of the brew alternated with great chili flavors one sip and solid amber flavors the next. The body is firm, but not heavy; creamy, but not thick. The beer lightened in the end with a linger of smoke, heat, and jalapino flavors. A nice complemet to the beer. Though a solid brew, drinking this in quantities is problematic for me.

Session: 8/15/05
These beers are always an exciting, yet apprehensive experiment; both for the brewers and the drinkers. Bright copper colored with some distinguishable amber highlights. Quite carbonated with a dainty head that fades quick. Lacing is impressive though. The aromas are somewhat of a bloody mary, with the spiciness, pepperyness, and vegetable characters. Tastes is similar as well; throw in sweet barley malt, earthy hops, smoked vegetables, and clean ale yeast. Mild barley sweetness and celery-like vegetables up front, then chile and hop spiciness hit in the body. Chile heat is assertive, but not over kill. The beer tapers into a dry chile vegetable flavor. Not bad, i've had worse.

A: The beer is amber in color and has a small head.
S: The aroma is very faint, but there are some hints of hops, malt, smoke and peppers in the nose.
T: Some flavors of chipotle peppers are detectable in the taste, which is somewhat bitter. The overall taste isn't very spicy, probably because they are balanced by the underlying malt.
M: It feels medium bodied and crisp on the palate with a medium amount of carbonation.
D: Nothing really stood about this beer, although I might try it again just because this is a unique style. I think this beer would work better paired with food than drinking it by itself.

An offering I thought i wouldnt like to much but came out being really suprised,pours a golden color with a deep orange tint with not much head that seetles pretty quickly.Aroma is of bicuit malt with a touch of briney chilies.Taste is nice and crisp off the bat dry malt is the flavor that dominates with that smokey chili flavor that come mainly in the finish and aftertaste it gets more noticable after a half a glass.My wife picked out the chili taste right away without even knowing it was a chili beer I am proud of her.

22oz bottle, in advance of some spicy homemade Kung Pao chicken, this seems to be a more than appropriate aperitif.

This beer pours a hazy medium bronzed orange hue, with two fingers of foamy, bubbly off-white head, which leaves some layered storm cloud lace around the glass as things slowly ebb away.

It smells rather smoky, very peat-like, with some singed jalapeno pepper oil, bready caramel malt, dry field honey, and herbal, leafy hops. The taste is much the same up front, the smoky, husky essence of campfire mated with moderately spicy vegetable matter, which quickly gives way to a pleasantly supportive bready, caramel malt, and some plain bruised apple fruitiness. Simple, and yet enjoyable.

The carbonation is quite laid back, just a middling frothiness, the body barely south of medium weight and generally smooth, the smoked hot peppers strangely having little bearing here. It finishes off-dry, with a strong reminder of the peppery smoke that started this whole show.

An interesting blend of chili flavour, Scotch-like peat, and well balanced amber ale. Not a particularly sessionable offering, to be truthful, what with there being all that oft-mentioned smoke, rather than spice, from the guest ingredient.

Rogue, of course, gives the best example of how to do a chili pepper beer right, if you have the balls to do it at all! First of all, it has to be an ale, something with sufficient flavor in itself to support the extra spicy chili taste, not one of those weak lagers with a pepper in the bottle (Crazy Ed, I'm talking to you!), and they use smoked chipotles, for an extra twist! Gotta love you, Rogue, and I rue the day I don't!
Appearance: a dull orangish color, topped with a huge, frothy white head.
Aroma: clean, but slightly spicy, with tiny hints of fruit, mellow, but still intriquing.
Taste is mellow at first, but before long the flavors unfurl, and then it hits...and kicks...subtly at first, then flowering, and revealing a definite peppery character
that soon dominates the palate with slow-arriving, but quickly conquering heat!
Still tasty and fruity, as any decent ale should be, with that peppery tinge at the back of the palate and lingering in the base of the throat.
Smokey peppery character really adds a unique dimension to this brew, and it deserves extra points for boldness and uniqueness alone!
Yummy, delicious, and Hot, HotHot!!! Now it's taking over my heade and creeping around other parts of the body, and it just gets hotter as we drink along...my damned head is flame, as the 22 0z. bottle is nearly emptied!
Hot, hot, hot and getting hotter, man, it's time to call the Bucket Brigade!
Big old thanks to BierRiese for helping me to reunite this once-tasted ale to my lips once more!

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a bright amber color with a short foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of caramelized malts, chipotle peppers and some hops.

T: The taste is very malty and a lot sweeter than I expected. The chipotle pepper flavor is merely in the background and doesn't overpower you. The hops presence is decent, but between the hearty malt character and the heat of the chipotles the hops are phased out. The after-taste is slightly smoky.

M: Smooth with a little crispness, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

D: A little tasty, goes down ok, slightly filling, while this beer is more drinkable than most beers of the style that try to burn your mouth, I believe this might be a much better beer to cook with than to drink.

Got this for a buck, what the heck?

Pours amber with a 1 finger deep sand colored head. No head retention or lacing

S: Smokey with sweet malt notes

T: Smokey malt & slight spiceyness up front along with a diatechyl sweetness. A little caramel & cinamon sneaks in as well. Finishes smokey & too sweet. I liked the restrained smokiness & heat, but the sweetness detracts

MF: Medium bodied with all right carbonation.

Dranks okay, I could having a couple with a burger, bbq or chilli. Not a huge fan of the stlye, but is better than most others I've tried

The beer pours an amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a rich malty scent that boasts of pale, crystal, and roasted malts along with spicey red chile edge. The taste is good as well. It has a smooth, malty flavor that boasts of crystal and roasted malts along with a very spicey chipotle pepper taste. I love these kind of beers. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a damn good beer considering it's a pepper beer. Rogue seems to be able to get it done no matter what style it is.

Poured into a tulip. I had this beer year ago and hated it, finally got back around to it and this time it was pretty good.

Beer is light amber and has a slight haze with a thick head that doesn't stick around.

Aroma is mildly sweet and has a smoky chipotle aroma. Shocking, its appropriate leveled.

Beer is medium bodied with a late smoke flavor. The chili flavor is matched well against the malt profile. Its pretty good. Its not overly smoky, not overly spiced. This is probably my favorite ACTUAL chile beer. Its not the best beer I've had, by a long shot, but its worth a look, for sure.

I don't know if the bottle was bad, or if I just hated the beer, but this one went straight down the drain after just a few sips. The beer poured a reddish color and smelled like chipotles. It also tasted quite a bit like them. Now I really like chipotle peppers, but something with this beer didn't agree with me. The person I was splitting the bomber with finished his glass, something I couldn't do. I have liked everything else from Rogue so I was expecting to like this one. But it just wasn't drinkable. I guess it is an acquired taste.

Pours a brilliantly clear, reddish amber color and is topped by a frothy, three-finger thick, light tan colored head. The aroma has a slight, yet almost caramelized fruity, smokey note to it that just seems characteristically like a chipotle to me. There is a bit of chile-like vegetal notes, but this is fairly mellow and there only if you really look for it. The smoke though, is the dominant note in the aroma.

The taste is lightly sweet up front, with a solid caramel/ crystal malt contribution. The finish is all smokey chipotle though. This is not to say that the chipotle notes are domineering, they are quite evident though, but in a almost subtle, sort of integrated manner. This is a nice quaffable beer as well, and I could see this pairing pretty well with some Mexican food. It is not spicy at all, which makes me wonder what kind of impotent chipotles were used in the making of this beer, but this makes for a much more universally drinkable beer (though why would you do this for such a niche beer). Regardless this is pretty tasty, and I am going to see how this beer pairs with a red-chile pazole.

It actually pairs quite well, the smokiness is subdued by the red chile broth, but still retains its complexity, and it remains an almost quenching retreat from the heat of the dish. In fact I would say that where this beer really excels is in its pairing with spicy Mexican food. I'll certainly try it with all sorts of dishes.

This beer was pretty enjoyable. I picked up a bottle of this a long time ago and gave it a try. I had no idea at the time on what to expect when drinking this. The color poured out as a really nice amber color with a nice creamy looking head on it. The aroma doesn't really have much of a pepper quality to it. Instead it's got some sweet malts and a touch of hops. The taste is a little on the weak side, the spice is in there but it's very minimal. The mouthfeel is drinkable and pretty smooth. Overall I was hoping the Chipotle was going to be a little stronger. Pretty decent beer though, I enjoyed trying it.

Pours apple juice copper with a thin bubbly, foamy white head that leaves foamy patches on the glass.

The smell is of the Rogue signature Pac-man yeast, with bready, citric, grainy notes. Not catching the chipotle, other than a slightly smoky whiff that could easily be missed.

The taste is of ... Rogue's signature Pac-man yeast strain. A nice yeast strain, to say the least. Otherwise, there is a bready taste with a touch of citrus and pine. The hops add flavor, but little bitterness, as this remains sweet throughout. The spicy part starts out very very mild, but grows a bit as it progresses, more in the form of smokiness than sharp heat. Finishes sweet with a touch of smoky balance.

It has a medium body with lingering sweetness.

Drinks easily. Not the chile heat that I expected, but that is probably not a bad thing. Interesting as "something different", but not enough to it (in any direction of the several that it goes) to get again.

Pours a cloudy amber - kind of reminds me of a Belgian brew. Nose is muted, but with a touch of a sweet edge. Flavor is actually pretty damn good. Starts off with an almost overly sweet tone which slowly morphs into something smoky and clean. The smoked peppers actually keep in your mouth. Over time as it warms up the smokey flavors REALLY come out. Feel is a bit thin, and it is drinkable (though a 22 oz bomber might be a bit too much for one person in one sitting), even though this is a chile beer.

Crystal clear amber color with a thick 3" head. Some spotty lacing develops through the drink. The aroma is of peppers and malt. The flavor is a unique blend of malt, smoked peppers, and mild bitterness. The smoked flavor is mild and pleasant, definitely not overbearing.

Light to medium in body. Smooth and mildly crisp at the start, and finishes smooth and smokey. I sampled and reviewed this before my meal, and then during my meal of spicy tacos and refried beans. The drinkability alone is very average, and with some spicy food was also average. This may pair a little better with some spicy BBQ ribs because of the soft smokiness.

Impressive rocky head. Neutral amber color. Slight haze. Good lace.

Mostly hop aroma. I cannot smell any chili peppers. This smells like a superior IPA, frankly.

I'd say that this a dry beer as opposed to a spicy beer. Still, it is flavorful in a astringent sort of way. Whole milk-like body with a generous amount of carbonation. The aftertaste has a touch of "hot" but honestly, the bottom line is this is a quality American pale ale.

I'm torn as to whether I should deduct points for the lack of spiciness. In the end, I've decided to make the marks reflect the quality of the beer.
