COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hola to a spiced up ale full of cocoa and ancho, guajillo, chipotle peppers. But donít 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!"

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours a very deep ruby red, so deep that the color is only perceptible when held up to the light. Thin, off-white head that hangs around for a while and then dissipates into a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is unmistakably a mixture of chocolate and cinnamon, sweet and spice. Taste profile is very dense at first and takes a few sips to comprehend. There is an immediate burn from chiles that also lend a slight tinge of saltiness, followed by the sweetness from the chocolate and honey. The chiles reassert themselves near the end. Not much in the way of either malts or hops (make no mistake, the chocolate flavor is from cocoa, not chocolate malts). However, there is some noticeable alcohol--like a brandy. Mouthfeel is rather thin and watery, with some slight carbonation. In sum, a good beer, comparable to efforts by Dogfish Head (Theobroma) and Samuel Adams (The Vixen). Iím forced to admit that I prefer those two slightly over this one, but it is worth a try.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is of cinnamon and peppers. Dark brown color with reddish tint. White head that fades. Taste of cinnamon, spices, and a little bit of heat from the peppers. Med body. Very complex flavor overall. I just didnít really like the flavor.

Great cocoa spice aromas. Clear brown with lasting off white head. Amazing cocoa smoothness with just the right bite.after taste is pleasant fades of the flavor begging to be refreshed by another sip.

mbgrayson (601) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours down brown, with a whitish tan head. Aroma of cocoa and pepper. Taste starts off with chocolate then heavily of peppers. I liked this fairly unique beer, but it is not that smooth or drinkable. Thumbs up.

Pours black with a tiny white lace of head. Kind of a candy chocolate aroma. Not strong. Taste is delicious. Rich chocolatey with a little pepper kick at the end. Nice thick body with a little carb.

Backlog. On tap at the brewery. Chalk full of spices, herbs and peppers with notes of cinnamon, caramel and chocolate malt. I thought I was going to like this, but I didnít really care for it. Perhaps Iíll give it another go soon.

furthur (332) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle, deep redish clear amber, light cream colored head dissapears, but leaves great lace. Aroma is yeast, coffee, cherries, chocolate, faint cinamon. Taste is chocolate, heat!, cinamon, coffee, cherries. That chili heat carries all the way through. Palate is rich and smooth, but not thick. Carbonation seems sharp, but I think itís the heat making it feel harsher than it is. This is a little sweet, but it plays off the heat perfectly. This is fun and really good.

On tap. Clear dark brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, cinnamon and pepper. Taste of roasted malts, cinnamon, faint caramel, chocolate, cocoa and chipotle peppers. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry peppery finish. Tasty but not very balanced.

Pours clear reddish brown thin tan head, fades quickly. Aroma of coffee and peppers with some cocoa. Flavor lots of cocoa and coffee with a aoicy pepper finish, for as mush is going on in this beer it all works. Body is fairy light medium carbonation.
