Holy Molé! Rogue’s Offerings at the Chile Pepper Fiesta

On Saturday Giancarlo and I went over to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for its annual Chile Pepper Fiesta, a celebration of all things spicy. Of course, we wandered into the beer area, where Rogue was offering its chipotle ale and chocolate stout (you could also get a bowl of chili).

Giancarlo got the chipotle ale, while I got the chocolate stout. You know I can’t resist a stout, in any shape or form. The stout was smooth and delicious, not too bitter – just how I like it. For me, the chipotle ale was a bit too spicy. But I guess that’s the point, isn’t it? Anyway, after we had polished off half of our beers, we combined the two for a “holy molé,” which we could have ordered, but preferred to mix ourselves. That was good too.

But the chocolate stout was my favorite.
