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!"

Aroma is mostly cocoa with very subtle chili hints. Deep brown in color. Taste is mostly cocoa, but leaves a nice little tingle in the back of your throat. Interesting brew. Glad I tried it, but once was good enough methinks.

On tap at the New Belgium bar at DIA. Came clear burgundy, minimal off white ring. Nose is chillies, root beer, vanilla, sugar, sweet malts. More of the same once on the palate with additional cocoa and spicy lingerings on a long finish. A bit thin but lots going on with the al alcohol well hidden. That heat lingers but I dig it.

I purchased this 22oz bottle just off of the word mole. Iím a big fan of fine Mexican,not texmex, food. I was completely blown out of the water by this beer. I poured it into a pint glass and was not impressed one bit. I stuck my nose into this clear brown liquid with not much head and was even further sliding down the disappointment path. Iím not a big fan of the commercialiness that craft brewing has become, and in my personal experience the s**t that has been coming out of Fort Collins. With my rant complete, I took a swig of this beer, and while not with initial mouth taste, as there wasnít much of one, I think I may have found a new favorite. This beer is exactically what the brewer intended. This is almost too complex a beer for the average palate. You take a healthy swig, itís not heavy, you can drink, you think...not much to it, you inhale...and there it is! A great mole sauce! Iím almost without words, this is beer at a totally different level. This takes everything you think of any beer at any point of your life and makes you completely rethink it. If they can do this with a beer, what else can be done? Iím glad I tried this beer and will recommend it. Again I canít put into words my surprise and approval of this beer. Cheers!

Chocolate and canned tomato aroma. Clear brown, thin tan head. Sweet chocolate flavor, but not cloying. Raisins are also present but not easily discernible. A nice peppery bite is at the end. Without the pepper, this would be a fairly boring beer. Itís kind of like the beginning of a dinner party, where no one has very much to say but then the life of the party shows up and suddenly everyone is having a good time.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 One of the best beers I have had in quite some time. Sweet and spicy notes dance all over your palate. It is simply so hard to get words to put to it. Just an awesome beer wich chocolate, peppers, caramel, and savory notes. Absolutely incredible. This is a must try.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Appearance: Pours a very dark red with a thick tan ring.

Aroma: Cinnamon, cocoa, chili, bread dough, sassafras.

Taste: Dry semi sweet cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, sassafras, chili pepper. Fairly hidden alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium, pepper heat.

Overall: Awesome flavor profile. I think the only thing I could critique it on is is the viscosity. I would have liked a bit more body. Iím amazed this was 9%, as it drank more like a 6-7% beer at the most. If you liked the profile on Stone 11.11.11 or even Hunahpu, youíll enjoy this as well.

deep brown with a cream head. nose is pepper, earth, light spice, and heat. very easy on the palate, flavor faint chocolate, peppers, spice, but it coats the mouth afterwards with peppers.

Dead on for mole character, but man was this beer a challenge. Too spicy and rough around the edges.

I really dig this brew. Cocoa/Chocolate notes at the beginning with hot pepper finish. Well balanced, and interesting. Something a little different, and Iíve had several bottles. Nice offering.
