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!"

Bottle from Whole Foods, Vienna. Pours a light brown with an orange tint and a tan head. Aroma chock full of cinnamon and cocoa. Slight hint of chili pepper. Flavor has moderate sweetness, with chocolate, cinammon and chili. Spice is well balanced and does not overpower. A bit of heat from the chilis at the end. Bitter, lightly hopped finish. Very enjoyable.

Snifter, draught @ Montana Ale Works. Dark brown with a red hue, and no head upon delivery. Has hints of curry and truffle on the nose. Upon tasting, the first thing that hit me was the carbonation, or so I thought. It turned out to be the attack of spice in the brew. The cool thing is that this initial spice quickly gives way to the chocolate, which thickly coats your tongue before being quickly lifted by the carbonation revealing a powerful finish of the initial curry or ancho/cayenne pepper. Amazing. If unique were the only factor, this would be the best beer of the year thus far.

Pours a very deep ruby red, so deep that the color is only perceptible when held up to the light. Thin, off-white head that hangs around for a while and then dissipates into a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is unmistakably a mixture of chocolate and cinnamon, sweet and spice. Taste profile is very dense at first and takes a few sips to comprehend. There is an immediate burn from chiles that also lend a slight tinge of saltiness, followed by the sweetness from the chocolate and honey. The chiles reassert themselves near the end. Not much in the way of either malts or hops (make no mistake, the chocolate flavor is from cocoa, not chocolate malts). However, there is some noticeable alcohol--like a brandy. Mouthfeel is rather thin and watery, with some slight carbonation. In sum, a good beer, comparable to efforts by Dogfish Head (Theobroma) and Samuel Adams (The Vixen). Iím forced to admit that I prefer those two slightly over this one, but it is worth a try.

What an unusual brew this was. The cinnamon sweetness and habanero came together better than I would have expected. I thought it would be too sweet and candy likd, but it smoothed out as I drank on. Friends and I determined that this beer is perfect to top off a good sweet or milk stout.

On tap at Beermongers. I wouldnít want a ton of this, but damn this is just like Mole. The aroma is heavy spices, chocolate and peppers. The flavor is very good; light peppers, light heat, chocolate, cinnamon. Very good and dead on.

Bomber. Pour a clear reddish color, with a thin fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, fruit, light spice. Flavor starts caramel, chocolate, sweetness, lightly dancing notes of fruit, then back of the pallate all of a sudden huge spicey flavor, lots of pepper and chipotle. Lingering heat in the finish. Nots over the top either. Flavor is great. Unfortunately the body seems quite thin and bubbly. A must try, interesting beer.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Pours a brown color. Aroma is chocolate, hot peppers, cinnamon, and caramel malts. Taste is much the same - chocolate cocoa up front and then finishes with the heat of the peppers. Quite unique.

22oz. Bottle from Total Wine in Northern Phoenix. Dark ruby pour with an off-white, tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, chocolate, malt and some small hints of apple. Sweet malt and chocolate flavors, then a kick of spice on the back of the tongue and throat. Exactly what I imagined by the name and advertised description, but it is a bit over powering, so best suited for a group tasting where everyone gets a small glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark ruby pour with a light tan/off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon, chocolate, a bit of malty sweetness. Flavor is chocolate and some light spice and then this pitch perfect little hot kick in the back of your throat. Light caramel notes, hints of chocolate and then that kick of heat. This was a wonderful beer.

22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear brown color with a one finger thick light tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is sweet spice and light cocoa. Flavor is a big dose of the same. There is a little heat that sneaks in on the finish. Medium body. A good beer.
