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!"

I am sitting in front of it but it is being served way too cold. Right now I get aromas of cocoa, what a surprise. Initial sip revealed surprising amounts of Chile peppers and allspice. Cocoa becomes more prominent as it warms. Real time rating-you have to love technology.

(#52) Pint from draft during Sac Beer Week at Streets of London. Appearance: Dark brown in color almost cant see through. Beige head. Aroma: Cinnamon, brown sugar, cherries. Taste: Big cinnamon flavor, some oak, figs, caramel. The more you drink, the bigger the spiciness of the chilies come through. Nice spice kick at the finish and warms your throat. Palate: Med. bodied. Good carbonation, smooth and creamy. Finishes smooth with the chili flavors coming out. Overall: Great beer, just enough spice of the chili heat. Id drink lots more.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) light tea-like brown with lasting creamy tan head. Nose of cinnamon, very light chiles, caramel and chocolate malt. Taste of lightly spicy peppers, cinnamon, chocolate malt, caramel, really liking the spiciness of this and it balances well with the sweet malt flavors. One of the best New Belgium beers in some time.

Thanks to Thorpette for grabbing this bottle from Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a SAVOR wine glass because my New Belgium globe goblet is packed. I’m glad I’ll only be pulling these shenanigans for a few more days. A: Pours a just-barely transparent dark brown color with a thin off-white head that fades pretty quickly into a collar with some small bubbles. Just a few spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. S: The nose brings forward a pretty good dose of cinnamon and chocolate with a touch of spice in the background. The chile peppers are noticed, but in the background. The cinnamon an cocoa blend is quite nice. T: What I just said about the chiles being in the background changes completely in the flavor, when they are front and center, which is unfortunate, as they really drown out the other aspects of the beer. M: Light-medium body with good carbonation and quite a bit of lingering spice. The heat isn’t overbearing at all, but it is disproportionate to the other characteristics of the beer. O: Not a bad beer by any means, but I think this would have been much better as a chocolate and spice beer with a bit of chile pepper rather than a beer that ends up focusing far too heavily on the chile.

ark brown in color, thick with a small thin tan head. Nice chocolate ad light pepper aroma. Flavor was that of a spicy mole sauce. Very interesting flavor and it works. Be sure not to order too much this is a high in alcohol and will kick you hard. Good Mexican food beer. Good job New Belgium on this one.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle with Carla. Pours amber brown with almost no tan foam. Smells sweet and slightly spicy of cinnamon and cocoa. Tastes exactly like Moonstruck’s Mayan Milk Chocolate. Sweet with hints of nuts, caramel, cocoa and a spicy cinnamon finish.

22oz bottle. Clear amber brown pour, sparse ring of off-white head. Aromas of cinnamon, graham cracker, chiles, and chocolate. Very unique meld of flavors - cinnamon, lots of sweetness, and some pepper heat. Really started to enjoy this as it warmed up.
