Translucent chestnut, tepid with thinnest white ring. Peppery licorice nose, raisin and sugary. Front is heavy cardboard and raisins, oxidation and under-attenuation. Barky spice and noticeable grass hops emerge mid amongst medicinal booze end, sticky and full with light nut.

Pours a very dark amber with a medium thick head. Delicious chocolate and coffee aroma, sweet with creamy palate yet not overly sweet. Very smooth and easy to drink, hides the alcohol very well. Does have a little spice to it which gives it more depth, even if I wouldn’t say it tastes like mole. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at the DC Pre-Thanksgiving tasting. Poured a brown cola color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some light chocolate, some licorice, chili spices. Some coffee bitterness in the flavor, with some chocolate, cinnamon and chili heat in the finish. Interesting. Alcohol is hidden pretty well.

From a 22 oz bottle at the DC Pre-Turkey Day tasting on Nov 9, 2014. Pours a clear dark amber with a scant head. Flavors of cocoa and chilis with some cloves thrown in for good measure. A bit weird, but ok.

This doesn’t really work out the way they probably imagined. Brown amber pour. Caramel, and some toffee. Light cinnamon. Consistency a little syrupy. Bottle.

Jenmarie (1) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2014 does not count
I thought it would have more of a cinnamon spice flavor, however it was still nice tasting and smooth going down. I thought it was going to be darker in color especially when I think of a mole.
