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 "ˇOle For Mole!"

Bottle. Pours clear brown with almost no head. Chocolate and caramel in the flavor. Cinnamon really dominates the flavor and the aroma. Not that spicy. Interesting beer.

BeerandBlues2 (11860) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear black with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is sugary cinnamon, nutty and caramel malt, spicy hops and peppers. Flavor is malt dominant, spices, peppers, light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with a trace of fizzy off-white; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate milk, dark fruit, cookie malt and faint earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt forward, dark fruit eaters and faint hops; sweet, chocolate milk taste throughout with a chili pepper aftertaste. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Braudog (6220) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle. Super-dark brown with a bit of a reddish tinge. The head gives up quickly. The initial whiff is reminiscent of cinnamon brownies ... mmm, mmm, mmm. This is an interesting concoction ... chocolate, spicy pepper (but not too spicy), the aforementioned cinnamon. This is an awesome dessert! (#4547, 3/28/2012)

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bright lightly hazed mahogany hue, decent head formation. Caramel licorice chocolate aroma. Tingling peppers instantly noticeable on the palate, turning to a spicy licorice and Hershey's syrup like chocolate. Very drinkable despite what at first despite what might seem like a real clash of flavored. Not been overwhelmed with new belgium or lips of faith lately but this was impressive.

brigg (598) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2012
(bottle) Dark reddish brown body with a medium light brown head. Interesting aroma--sweet chocolate, peppery chipotle/mole, caramel, cinnamon. Flavor is much the same, and it packs some definite if mild pepper heat; very sweet; dark chocolate and bitterness. Very interesting, but not really my favorite. Light to medium body.

haddon90 (1606) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, clear mahogany color with a thin, tan head. Strong, cocoa aroma with a hint of vanilla. Spices as well. Interesting taste. Very complex. Spicy, but light cocoa presence too. Very interesting beer. But a very good beer, nonetheless.

GT (9933) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Tap at CK. Clear deep red pour with wispy beige lace. Awesome spicy Mexican chocolate nose with beautiful rich complexities. Taste is full on spicy chocolate with rich dessert character. Highly enjoyable. Much better than I could have ever expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 25, 2012
On tap at ckbb. Super dark brown pour with a beige head. Pepper cocoa nibs in the nose with creamy milk chocolate and moderate spice in the flavor. Reminds me of lyndt pepper chocolate. Simple but delicious. Medium to full body with a roasty finish.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2012
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.
