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!"

Sampled on 3/16/2012. This spiced ale pours a medium copper brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet, hint of pepper and mole. A medium bodied spice ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of pepper and some chocolate and cinnamon. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. A touch of heat from the pepper, with a nice clean flavor that is very well balanced by the chocolate. Very nice beer. Nice mix of heat and sweet. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours a dark but clear brown with a small, brief tan head. Cinnamon with sugar dominates the aroma, and dark malt is in the background. Likewise, the flavor has a heavy cinnamon presence, but that is decently balanced with the other elements: sweet dark malt, a hit of cocoa, and a semi-caustic spicy chile finish. Sweet and spicy. Cinnamon is a bit excessive. Body is somewhat thin.

Gachupines (1062) - USA - APR 4, 2012
Brown with a white head, aromas are chocolate with mild pepper. It actually smells a lot like spiced hot chocolate. Flavor is cocoa with a strong but not overpowering pepper presence. A little heat in the finish, but not in an unpleasant way. Very interesting, well done beer.

Great beer. Smells like cinnamon sugar but finishes with a chili hotness. Smell is different than taste but this is a great beer. Love the Lips of Faith series by New Belgium

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2012
Pours a deep deep brown color. Taste is magnificent. Brown sugar and a very mild vegetable spice. This is one of my favorite new Belgium beers to date. Lots of.brown sugar in the aftertaste. No recognize of any high alcohol taste. This beer simply is well balanced, mildly spicy, and sweet sweet cocoa brown sugar to finish. Delicious. Thanks new Belgium.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with almost no head. Chocolate and caramel in the flavor. Cinnamon really dominates the flavor and the aroma. Not that spicy. Interesting beer.

Tap at Max’s. Pours clear black with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is sugary cinnamon, nutty and caramel malt, spicy hops and peppers. Flavor is malt dominant, spices, peppers, light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.
