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!"

Crompt (122) - York, South Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 This beer gets high marks from me because it is a very unique brew and easily the best spice/pepper beer I’ve ever had. This is a dessert beer that is very rich and sweet and not as much spice as I was expecting. I can taste the peppers but don’t get any heat but the flavors are so balanced I don’t mind one bit.

24/V/15 - sample from bottle @ LIBF (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2015-721) Thanks to the Belgian (and Dutch, and...) RB crew for sharing today’s beers!

Clear dark brown to red brown beer, creamy irregular beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, some ersatz chocolate, sweet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of fake chocolate, very spicy, cinnamon, quite some chillies, watery impression though. Aftertaste: chillies burning, spices, lots of ginger bread, more chillies. Well, this is how it’s not done, I guess... Lame Hunahpu copy.

willisread (831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 29, 2015
On tap at Watering Hole. Muddy chocolate color with caramel highlights and a small tan head. Big aromas of chocolate and cinnamon with some chilli pepper too. Rich and smooth slightly syrupy mouthfeel with average to soft carbonation. Starts off sweet and then ends with a nice chilli burn. The cinnamon is a little overbearing but still very enjoyable.

Benzai (10131) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Dark brown to black color with a nice deep dark red glow coming through, small to average sized beige head. Aroma is not cocoa but some other spice, nutmeg or cinnamon. Taste malts, sweetness, peppers, spices and just yuk. Not good at all.
