COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 "ˇOle For Mole!"

reebtogi (4492) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is cinnamon and chocolate with some light roasted notes. Taste is a light roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness and finishing with a mild burn from the peppers and cinnamon. A well crafted brew with a nice balance of flavors that needs to be sampled.

It poured an amber/brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of cinnamon, vanilla, graham cracker, chocolate and some espresso. The taste was of cinnamon, nutmeg, dark fruits, some roast and chocolate with a spicy finish. Very nice.

22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled on 1/29/2015. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, cherry, plum, fig, date, caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, toast, cinnamon, chile pepper, and herbal/spice earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of dark fruit, dark/bready malt and chili/spice notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, toast, cinnamon, chile pepper, and herbal/spice earthiness. Some light roast/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, cocoa, caramel, toast, brown sugar, cinnamon, chile pepper, and herbal/spice earthiness on the finish for a while. Chile pepper heat builds up as you finish the glass, but doesn’t get overbearing. Fantastic complexity and robustness of dark fruit, dark/bready malt, and chile/spice flavors; with a great dark fruit/malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with a minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic chile spiced beer. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark fruit, dark/bready malt, and chile/spice flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the the ABV with the moderate heat from the peppers. A highly enjoyable offering.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear cola brown with a tan head. Cocoa aroma. Flavors of milk chocolate, cinnamon and chili. Fiery finish.

patricks110 (1842) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
I found this one a bit boring overall with a light spice and cocoa flavour. Pours a dark purely opaque black with a heavy roasted malt, cocoa, light spice notes. A smooth and slightly sweet flavour. A bit boring and underwhelming overall

This is nice. Everything works perfectly. But. But. But. Way, way, way too much heat.

Tap in Rochester at the Tap House, great pub. A favorite of mine, first year rating. The spice is memorable, the combination with coco, legendary. Great year, spice is more present than last year. If you have the chance, take it.
