Say hola to a spiced up ale full of cocoa and ancho, guajillo, chipotle peppers. But donít 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!"

Bottle and served in my NB Worthy glass: Mahogany hued with a small but lasting frothy head, some lace. The aroma has notes of cocoa nibs and powered milk chocolate, ancho and chipotle chilies, some cinnamon and ginger, slightly pumpernickel bread, caramel and roast. Smells very inviting indeed!

The taste displays a sweet chocolate and sweet malt character at first along with some candied ginger, frosted cinnamon buns and slight juicy fruit gum notes before a sneaky spicy heat comes about on the finish which continues to gain strength but never completely overpowered the malts. Mostly balanced and I for one am glad there are no hop characteristics noticed to muck up the concave of flavors. This just tastes so old school and traditional like some of the spiced Norwegian beers do. MIKEY LIKEY! The mouth feel is a tad tepid but with that heat on the backend you really do not have much a need for slick or oily components.

Unlike many chilies beers (here is looking at you Sam Adams The Vixen, Stone 11.11.11 and New Holland el Mole Ocho) this one formed a wonderful marriage between savory and spicy... perhaps a dash of lime could have taken it over the top but I am happy with the way it is. YEAH BEER!

Pours brown with a medium head. Aroma of chili peppers and a little chocolate. Medium bodied with some reasonable chocolate and some pretty good chili taste. More chili taste and less chocolate than I thought. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (2237) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2012
Dark, clear, ruby-brown with a modest sized khaki head and solid lacing. Aroma is a little mild, but consists of cocoa, chile, and cinnamon. The taste is full of cinnamon and cocoa with a nice chile pepper accent. Medium bodied and creamy with a very slight chile heat. Iíve never had anything like this. Very dessert-like.

Beaver (1485) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours dark reddiish brown with a smallish fizzy creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is awesome - sweet chocolate, cinnamon and chili spices (mole).

The flavor is sweet chocolate and cinnamon with a chili spice kick in the finish. Thereís a sublte vegetal note, that I donít recall in fresher samples. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.

Overall, I really like this. Itís a nice blend of chocolate, cinnamon and chili spice. It has good heat, but is not the standard chili beer.

SDalkoholic (2261) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle from Bine and Vine: Appeared as a dark brown color that looked similar to maple syrup while a tiny formation of head rested on top. The aroma is subtle yet has a spicy smell of cinnamon, tamarindo, brown sugar, and Mexican sugar cane/piloncillo. Thankfully, the flavors are even more intense that the aroma and deliver a bold taste of sugary Mexican sugar cane, soda/root beer, tamarindo, black tea, and a spicy burn in the finish such as that of a pelucas push up. I could see how this is a mole recipe, but Iíve never tasted a traditional Mexican mole sauce remotely close to this before.

BayAreaBeers (85) - Fremont, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pours a light ruby brown with little head. Smells of cocoa and big sweetness. Taste is pretty damn dead on to the nose. Big chocolate and brown sugar with a nice spice. Just a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown. Spicy nose. The taste is strong cinnamon and peppers. Not to my liking. Too peppery and cimmamony! Will not buy or drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Opaque dark brown pour with a short, fizzy tan head. Aroma is strong cinnamon, caramel and peppery spiciness. Taste is cinnamon and caramel up front with sweet malt, peppers, and chocolate in the background. Body is medium and chewy with bubbly carbonation and a moderate heat from the hot peppers. Finishes with more cinnamon notes, not unlike a cinnamon donut, sweet malt, caramel, cocoa, and peppers. More lingering heat here as well. I imagine this going well with chili.
