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!"

Hussey (60) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2012
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.

Quite good within this style. Nice amount of heat, rich cinnamon character, not overly thick, altogether a delicious beer.

ryanhunter_4 (114) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2015
650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a dark brown with no head but beige lacing. Smells like chili powder. Taste is chocolate with a spicy chili kick at the end. I rated another mexican stout not long ago and really didn’t enjoy it. This one is considerably better, although I don’t love the style. Still, it’s drinkable.
