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!"

Paddle @ Mellow Mushroom w/colleague & beer geek buddy Rick. Pour: Smooth brown pour. Thin bead of tan foam. Porter-like. Aroma: Slight-sweet syrupy nose. Taste: Cocoa/chocolate tone with an amazing peppery finish. Very impressed at the construction of this thing. I’m a hop guy, so even trying this was a "leap of faith". The spices all combine beautifully in this very even, balanced brew. Overall: I kept sniffing, swirling, and tasting. After each time I tried it I said: My God, this is incredible. I got more and more out of the this beer with every taste. I will pick up a six pack and investigate this phenomenal brew some more. Highly recommended.

Very thin over spiced. Really disappointed though I like spiced stouts. Not horrible but never again.

Nische (1416) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2015
Tap at Queens Head. Pours deep brown with a off white head. Aroma of cocoa, chili, anise and cinnamon. Flavor packed with chocolate, raisins and spices up front with a lingering light chili burn.

@ Stordirren 15-8-29: (backlograting) Ganska tunn vätska. Mycket kryddig doft samt doft av körsbär. Inte riktigt gott. Mycket kanel och chili ... nja

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours cola brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a base of nice chocolate character with ample spices throughout, peppery spice, Saigon cinnamon adds a different character, sweet vanilla, sweet malts, lighter hints of smoke, interesting enough.

Tmoney99 (12415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with very good lacing. Aroma was a moderate peppers, chocolate and spice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex toasted chocolate malt, peppers and spice flavor and a medium to heavy complex chocolate finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer.

Bottle at Malt och Humle, Linköping, on September 12, 2015.
Clear dark brown color, tan head. Mainly cocoa scent, also spicy like soft ginger bread, reminds me of cookies and Christmas. Cocoa, chili fruits, musty taste. Chili heat, cocoa aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.

NikkTwist (2138) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Draft at Bru. Cloudy nearly black pour with splashes of a foamy beige head. Spicy dark malts. Potent for the style. Dark burnt chocolate cocoa for the style. Slightly overrun with pervasive cocoa flavors. Still tremendous stuff moving the narrative forward.

vikingguy (968) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Brown ale with small creamy tan head. Spiced dark fruit and herbs on the nose. Taste- sweet malt, chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, oak and a hint of smoked paprika and chilli pepper. Has some root beer spice flavors. Mild and sweet finish, very little bitterness. Interesting spiced chocolate porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

katrinaez (783) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 Raisin and cinnamon scent. Red brown color. Taste is sweet with raisin, dates, and toffee. If you are going to call it cocoa, think Nestle Quick. Very deep Christmas fruits and thick. Almost like pudding. Hard to do as a full beer, easier as a sample. Tap.
