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!"

22oz bottle. Pours dark with white head. Smells like cinnamon toast. Tastes like cinnamon, some spicy heat. Medium body, good. Unique.

On tap at Whole Foods Pasadena. I’m surprised by the lower scores, this is very good in my opinion. More sweet than spice on the nose, dark brown pour. Taste is great blend of caramel, chocolate with chili pepper. The palate is great, nice thick chewy texture. Very good, I think my wife would love this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 On tap. Being a lover and cooker of mole this tastes nothing like it, only 3 out of 5 chilies that I normally use, it really overall just tastes like hersheys and sugar with a bit of cinnamon, absolutely no heat, failure.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle is dark brownish with a thin off white head, dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma brings notes of chocolate, coffee and roast notes, big cinnamon, slight pepper notes and some clove in there. Taste is like a spicy cinnamon stick, with cinnamon dominating with a very slight hint of heat from the peppers, touch of clove going into some nice chocolate and roasted malt at the end. Interesting, but a bit one-dimensional.

Loved the aroma and pours perfectly in the glass. By the third sip the mole spice became a bit much for me. No doubt a fun beer for tasting or sharing but not one I would want on a regular basis or whenever my internal clock says it’s "beer-thirty". Had on tap in my shop in Wake Forest, NC.

black with small light tan head that dissipates. aroma of peppers, cinnamon, and a little chocolate. taste is fairly smooth, with some chocolate to start, but then the peppers take over and linger. interesting brew in concept and flavor, but overly spiced and peppers are overpowering. had a few sips and the rest down the drain.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Sample at Dog and Pony. Clear amber brown, thin beige head. Aroma of pepper, smoke, cocoa. Taste was very interesting, a little too sweet but the spiciness certainly helped combat that. I was expecting a train wreck and it wasn’t that bad at all. I would not want to drink any more than 5oz of this however.

Fascinating aroma of chocolate and spicy cinnamon. The chocolate cOmes first on the palate, dark and sweet. The backend brings the spice, which is more big red than chili pepper, perhaps some tamarind too. Not a bad way to make a chili beer.

Truth in advertising here. And a beautiful bottle design. Pours a reddish brown. Big cinnamon nose. Some mocha notes to me as well. Flavor starts off like Mexican hot cocoa then the waves of pepper and heat start hitting the top of the mouth. I am not a pepper person but this works for me. Could use a smaller bottle though.

The pour is a very dark brown with garnet highlights and a fairly small, beige, fizzy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal frothy lace. The nose is like a big cinnamon roll, very bready, some vanilla notes, and light cocoa. The flavor is similar with more chocolate and cocoa, still a very dominant cinnamon roll note, some light toasted caramel and vanilla, and a chile pepper background. The palate is warming from the chile pepper notes, medium to full, lively, and slightly syrupy. The finish is warm and spicy, still lots of cinnamon, some light chocolate, and some vanilla. It is amazing how much this beer reminds me of a big cinnamon roll with mole characteristics. The beer was a bit hard to drink despite the fact that I liked the flavor characteristics. A very unique beer to say the least, a beer I thought I would really like. But it was just a beer I would really want to drink again.
