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 "¡Ole For Mole!"

2015-03-04. Red tinged dark brown body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma is cocoa mole as advertised, with sugary Mexican chocolate character. 7+ Flavour has more chili kick than I personally like in the first sip but it moderates on the second, gaining more of the nice chocolate character. Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ Not really my thing, but well executed. On tap at Birch & Barley, Washington DC.

Dark with thin brown head. Subtle spice and chocolate aroma. Taste is subtle too, cocoa, malt, and hint of spice. Very nice, thanks to Steve W. for sharing.

On tap at hopcat, Grand Rapids MI. Tastes and smells like what it promises. A good rich chocolatey stout with chili pepper undertones that last well past the aftertaste. Not very thick but definitely a good and creative IS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the bomber and shared between a few friends. The appearance is dark brown and a dissipating thin head. Aroma of cinnamon, cocoa, and a peppery spices. The flavor is slight cocoa and dark chocolate and then boooom, roasted chilies and cinnamon. Rich malts abound with pepper coming through. Finished sweet and smooth palate feel. Excellent beer, would love to drink this with steaks or some Mexican food.

Pours but if a thin cola color with a medium tan head. Odd chocolaty aroma, but of band aids and plastic? Medium bodied and surprisingly light. Smooth and a But sweet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I hated almost all the other Lips of Faith beers. This is an absolute exception. Holy mother of god. This beer is great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a deep brown-mahogany color with a moderately thick head of two finger height. The brown tinted head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is rather strong of a milk chocolate flavor mixed with some spicy red pepper aromas. Along with these more dominant smells are some aromas of a caramel and smells of a dark fruit nature with the fruits being mainly of a raisin and plum smell. A strong aroma of cinnamon rounds out the smell creating a Mexican spiced milk chocolate bar aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a moderately sweeter chocolate flavor mixed with some lighter flavor of hot pepper. Upfront the sweetness is of a caramel and dark fruits, but these flavors later end up fading a bit as the taste moves on. While the sweeter flavors fade some, more pepper comes to the tongue and with this increase in pepper also comes some flavors of roasted malt and some stronger spice flavors of a cinnamon and a hit of coriander. In the end with the loss of sweet, the increase in the spice and heat, and with a little bit of a boozy taste hitting the tongue, one is left with a rather hot semi sweet Mexican spiced cocoa bar flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. For the rich cocoa mixed with the pepper it is a rather decent feel as it nicely accentuates the two all while not overwhelming the tongue with the spice or the richness of the taste. Overall – An interesting one to try, but a little too peppery and spiced for my tastes. If you like chili spice and chocolate porters this may be for you, but if not you may not want to take this on.

Pours a brown color with a very thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and lots of cnnamon. Flavor is chocolate, sweet cinnamon, and spicy chili. The balance of sweet and spice is perfect. The cinnamon is a very nice touch. Delicious.

Hmmm....just a bit too spicy for my tastes (in a drink, at least), but it is very good. To me it looks in between a brown ale and a porter. Aroma is dark chocolate and chiles. In the first few sips the dark chocolate is amazingly up front, but after the 5 sips or so, unfortunately the spice of the chiles is overpowering my palate. The aroma becomes more chiles than chocolate as well. Excellent beer, but finishing a bomber on my own will be a challenge. I got an extra to share with beer buddies at the office - that should be fun experience.

On tap at Brookland Pint in Brookland, Washington, DC. Opaque, brown-black with a small off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, cinnamon, chocolate and peppers. Taste of of chocolate, hot chili peppers, cinnamon and roasted malt. Medium body and medium carbonation. I've had some great chili pepper beers. This one is too spicy for my taste. As an enchilada sauce, it would be great. Not so much for a beer. The base beer is quite good, if you can taste it through the fire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
