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!"

Opaque with a tan head. I could smell this forever- mocha and cinnamon. Full bodied and tiresome. There are complex spicy notes, but the chocolate is over the top. Ranks up there as a curious acheivement, but a little goes a long way.

Bottle shared by Kinz at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. This beer is called Kokomo according to Butters. Pours a clear amber color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, nutty notes, spice and cinnamon. The taste is cinnamon, chocolate, toasted malts and chili peppers. The heat from the peppers dominate and ruin an otherwise tasty beer.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the Richmond 17th Gathering. Clear dark brown with not much tan head. Good cinnemon and chocolate profile. Milk chocolate. The chile doesn’t show up until the end, but when it does, it is intense heat. heartburn. This is absolutely great. Love everything about this.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Very deep brown, slight head. Chocolate, cinnamon, and pepper aroma, quite enticing. Flavor is a match, but not quite as intense as the aroma. Heat from chlis is fairly intense on the end, unfortunately distracting ultimately.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Bottle. Deep amber pour with a smaller white head. Cocoa, chocolate, and a really good dose of chipotle. Cinnamon on the nose and on taste.

22 oz bottle from Red Dog. Poured at room temperature. Pours a deep amber to light brown body with a lasting ring of beige head. Aromas of cocoa, cinnamon, like the aroma of that cinnamon roll shop in the mall. Flavors first hit with chipotle, including a touch of smoke, and other fruitiness of the peppers followed by caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate. Finish is mildly spicy and sweet cinnamon, like a red hot.

Bottle @ home. Hazy, dark reddish brown appearance with a decent sized, light brown head. The nose is quite appetizing. spicy cinnamon and a moderate spicy pepper, rich cocoa flavor. Smells great. Rich chocolate malty, cocoa, spicy cinnamon, light vanilla, tasty pepper (minus the vegetal element) flavor. Drinks very nicely and I’m loving how they did the spicy element in this beer without getting the nasty vegetal flavor. I think most of the spiciness comes from the cinnamon rather than the chili peppers.

22 oz. Bomber from Red Dogs. Pours a nice brown copper with little head. Smell and taste remind me of Yoohoo, with a nice little spice at the end. Tastes much better than it smells though. Overall a decent beer and interesting combination.

Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla and light chilies. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of cinnamon, cocoa, light carmel and light chilies with a smooth warming lingering cinnamon finish.

Bomber. Poured medium-deep iced tea brown with a short-ish off-white head. The aroma opened with a hefty dose of cocoa paired with smoked guajillos and cinnamon.. spicier on the back of the nose.. really intriguing! The flavor found milkier chocolates, cocoa, and vanilla at the core.. smoked peppers and cinnamon rose as the drink progressed.. nice blend of chocolate, peppers, and cinnamon.. the combo of peppers and cinnamon almost made it too spicy, but it still worked. Medium-bodied, dry, and smoky on the palate.. lots of stuff going on, almost to a fault.. but I’d still drink it again.
