Say hola to a spiced up ale full of cocoa and ancho, guajillo, chipotle peppers. But don’t fear the heat, because plenty of caramel and chocolate malts bring a smooth, complex flavor. Scents of cinnamon when poured will have your saying "¡Ole For Mole!"

sebletitje (7492) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
Bomber. Brun clair, col fin blanc-cassé. Arôme offre, tout comme la CCB El Coco, un bouquet impressionnant de cannelle avec un léger rétro épicé-piment et chocolaté. Le piment perce un peu plus mais sans être surfait. Palais est malté et complexe. Note de cannelle, épicé apportant une petit note réchauffante en bouche surtout du Chipotle. Le chocolaté malté est subtil et trouve un bon équilibre dans la manière de contribuer au caractère de cette bière. Le côté épicé est prenant et ajoute à la complexité.

Pyrmir (4003) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
Sample from tap at Pipes of Scotland. Brown with tan head. Aroma has sweet chocolate, coca, smoke, green chilies, roasted malt, caramel and various spice. Taste is similar, lots of cocoa, sweet malt, chocolate, rum, spice, cinnamon. A bit too sweet and spicy for me

Hamirubi (270) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2015
15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). Dark redbrown, black, with an even red ruby gloom. The nose has black pepper, spices, cinnamon, coffee. The taste too is very, very peppery, with ginger hints. Nice.

This is a whole experience, not really a beer. Pours bordeaux/brownish, thin head. Aromas of malt in the nose, taste is VERY spicy, chili peppers, cinnamon, chocolate notes. Interesting tasting, but a bit too extreme: I love pepper/chili beers, but this one had far too much in it.

ElManana (986) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle at Leuven Innovation Beerfestival, thanks for sharing! Worst beer of the day, and one of the most digusting beers I’ve ever had. Cinnamon, chilies, all spices you would not want in your beer are present. Very thin body. It smells like food, it tastes like food, but it has the body of a water.

Alengrin (3029) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Apparently ’unhopped’ and spiced chocolate porter, with sticky, light beige, stable head and deep clear burgundy colour. The aroma is bizarre, but stunning and unlike any other beer aroma I sniffed so far: I get cocoa and caramel, lots of cinnamon, but also weird odours of coconut, ladies’ perfume and dried chilli peppers - still, the whole concoction works very well for me. The taste is pure fun: sweet but not cloying at first, caramel, marzipan, lots of chocolate, roasted coconut; a soft and lean malt body, caramelly and very chocolatey, supports an array of spiciness, cinnamon again but then, even before the end, a lively chilli burn comes up, tingling and prickling in the throat and in that sense the most original replacement of hop bitter I could think of. The chilli heat lasts for a while but still fits into the whole and I do like spicy food, so it does not disturb me at all. I cannot but describe this beer as fun! Even the label breathes joy de vivre - nothing too serious here, at first sight... Strange, enticing, original and experimental - could this be the most innovative beer of the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival? Perhaps... To me personally, it was without doubt the most pleasant surprise of the festival. I want more of this!

Small head fast gone over dark brown, ruby-shot beer. Nettles, brandy, candy sugar, chocolate, red wine, undergrowth, pimentos. Sweet cacao, brambles, alcohol, some fusels, chipotles, cinnamon. Fiery, burning MF - but like delayed action curry - heat. Well-bodied. Not one to finish the bottle on your own - unless with spicy-hot food.
