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!"

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.

Bottle - This beer got better and better with each taste. Poured brown with a light head. The body was thin. Nice amount of chocolate in the nose. There was nice balance between the cocoa and peppers in the tastes. There wasnít really the taste of peppers but the heat was mostly on the back end and slightly in the front. Overall, I really enjoyed this one.

A deep plum pour. Thin ring of tan head. I detect cinnamon In the aroma more than anything else. The flavor punches in steadily head first with cinnamon, butter, sugar, and break me, guajillo chile! Cinnamon toast crunch finish. Go kids! ! Yes, two "!" "!".

This has some cocoa in the aroma, but wow does this have a lot of chipotle peppers in the flavor. Some chocolate as well. Good in a small amount once. But thatís enough for me.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2012
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 (3843) - 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 doesnít show up until the end, but when it does, it is intense heat. heartburn. This is absolutely great. Love everything about this.

Kinz (3361) - 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.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2012
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.
