COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!"

Bomber. Pours a beautiful copper-brown-ruby red hue with a medium dissipating cream-colored collapsing head that leaves a soapy ring. Aroma is strong in mole--peanuts stand out especially. I also get some cinnamon and the peppers. Taste is sweet and meaty. It leaves a spicy burn after the swallow; itís not extreme as say, Cave Creek, but itís much more pronounced than something like Sam Adams Chocolate Chili Bock. Other flavors include cinnamon, mole sauce (peanuty). Iím not getting any cocoa here. And now that Iíve come to the palate part of the review, we run into this beerís biggest problem--the body. If it was not so thin, this would be an all-time favorite. As such, it brings the beer down. Itís still really good, and I appreciate a chili beer that actually contains some heat. Iíve been let down recently by so-called chili beers in this regard--see the aforementioned Sam Adams beer for one. This one delivers. The mouthfeel is nice and creamy and the carbonation is medium. Overall, itís good, I just wish it had a bigger body.

A wonderful and surprising beer, great chocolate taste with a surprising pepper aftertaste. The hot pepper taste is mild but evident.

Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and a thin white head. Aroma is chocolate and peppery spice. Flavor is sweet and malty, chocolate, a little pumpkin pie, chilis and a hint of heat in the finish.

Pours dark brown. Beige thin head quickly dissapates. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, chilis and i think i smell a hint of tropical fruit. Flavor is unique. Chocolate flavor is nice and gives way to some good spice. Cinnamon first and then chili heat lingers. I also detected coconut flavors and possibly ginger. The palate was thin on this one. Overall, well done unique and interesting. With all the hype on blvd choc ale, i would take this one over that anyday !

Pleasantly surprised by this as the Lips of Faith series has been hit or miss for me. This ones an easy double, maybe a triple. Dark clear obsidian pour creates a small latte head. Ample carbonation. Aroma of freshly baked brownies and gooey caramel. Flavor shows a lot of complexity and balance. Fudge, cinnamon sticks and a healthy dose of chili pepper heat impact the tongue. Capsiason lights up the taste buds a bit but is not overwhelming. The cocoa, toffee and brown sugar notes definitely tame it down. A little thin but absolutely delicious!

What a wonderful, richly flavored beer! Nose is full of cocoa and the flavor is an amalgam of chiles, chocolate and cocoa. Back of the throat detects capsaicin. Tad too carbonated.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma has notes of cocoa and nut. Flavor kicks into gear, obvious notes of cocoa, a dash of cinnamon then some malt with a very nice chilie spiciness that has a bit of heat. Mouthfeel is medium body but somewhat thin with low carbonation. Overall, Im really digín this brew!!! Good stuff!

The bottle alone should win an award. Very unique. The aroma of this beer is absolutely amazing. Chocolate, caramel, and about eight different spices. Reminded me of a baked pumpkin pie. Hints of pepper and other cooking spice. Nice rich brown color. Taste of herbs, spice, and roasted malts. This is a very off the wall beer but done so remarkably well. Grab one before they disappear.
