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!"

From Beerlicious iphone app: clear brown with minimal head light bitterness with an average duration medium body and its slick and watery abrupt finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is cinnamon and chiles. Taste adds honey, cinnamon and chiles remain prominent. Palate is a little thinner than I'd like. Good heat on the finish. This is really unique and well made. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was really not a fan of this one. Transparent brown pour. Spices galore. Chilies, cocoa, and cinnamon. Like a Mexican hot chocolate. Itís done well, but I couldnít have a whole glass of it.

A very unique beer! Perfect for dessert. Strong chocolate and caramel balance the stingy spiciness. My only complaint is that it feels a little flat, in that the head disappears immediately and there is no lacing.

On draught at apex 3rd birthday - cloudy dark brown. Nose is definite cinnamon and hint of pepper. Very smooth mouthfeel. Dominate taste of cinnamon with chocolate accents. Does have a peppery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darwenus (568) - Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Pours a deep rust color but is a more standard brown in the glass with very little head. The aroma is a lot of spice and chocolate, with the emphasis on the spices. A little black and red pepper seems to come through, too. This is a very different beer from the kind of thing I usually gravitate toward. Itís not something Iíd want often, but I enjoyed this bottle.

Damico (2681) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours mostly unclear deep amber with a dark ruby hue and decent sandy colored head. The aroma brings chipotle smoke dominating and a little bit of sweet cinnamon. The flavor brings a cleaner ale with some peppers tingling the tongue, not overbearing though at all being a year and a half old. The sweet caramel then comes in nicely and works quite well with the beer overall.

nuplastikk (4705) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Alchemy. Pretty well rounded example of a chocolate-chili beer. Doughy chocolate tones with a noticeable chili pepper balance. The alcohol is hard to notice, because the chili heat trumps it. Has some heat and burn in the aftertaste, but still enjoyable. Highly unique, great mouthfeel.

BeerFlavoredBeer (254) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 15, 2013
There is a bit of heat to this, but its like the heat you get from a ginger or cinnamon cookie. Lots of rich malty flavors and spices in this one. Sweet, not overly heavy. The finish has a nice vanilla flavor and a cinnamon-like earthiness to it. This is an excellent desert beer with a lot going on. Unlike many heavier, sweeter flavored beers (and even other chili beers), it is balanced well enough that a pint isnít a challenge, at all. A delicious and unique offering.

Tap. Brown with small head. Light heat, and sweet chocolate. Not a big fan of pepper beers, but this is decent.
