COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our exploration into the flavors of mole, the legendary sauce of central Mexico. Malty aroma and rich, cocoa-laden body laced with an invigorating tinge of dried chilies and coffee.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5136) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a dark brown color with a small beige head that lingered and produced some lacing. The aroma was sour nut, malty and had notes of cocoa, root beer, hot peppers and wochestershire sauce. The flavor was bitter and sharp with notes of cocoa, root beer, fruity hops and hot peppers with a light earthy undertone. The finish was long and malty with cocoa and hot pepper lingering. Moderately full bodied. Quite interesting.

Dogbrick (8800) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. The beer is a clear dark amber color with a compact beige head that dissipates slowly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cocoa and earthy malt. Medium body with a sweet chocolate and malt character along with touches of black licorice and spices. The finish is chocolatey with a mildly bitter coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

drpimento (2298) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Pretty good. Pretty much like they say except there’s a notable mineral characteristic. Poured with a nice off white head and lots of lace. Color is a clear mahoganey. Aroma is cocoa malt mineral and a little ripe dark fruit. Flavor is like nose but a hint of the spice added, but not as much as expected. Body is good and ditto carbonation. Finish is decent and of medium lenght.

dmac (4274) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2010
22 oz bomber shared by pineypower, uhm thanks Dean for this gem. Poured an ugly thin mud brown body with lots of clinging bubbles and a small bubbly quickly fading head. Aroma of chocolate, green peppers, bread and mud. The body was as thick as fudge yet still had lively carbonation, weird. Flavors of a weird mud, pepper, chocolate combo. Epic fail.

Sammy (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle at Mondiale 2010. Cloudy brown, with a little beige head, lacey. Some sourness, big mocha taste more than coffee. Lots of lace drops. Above average mouthfeel. Not much aroma. Hidden a.b.v. Decent drinkability.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Poured a dark red with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is a mix of spice and cocoa. Initial taste has this on the sweet and light chocolate side, but the spices come through well on the aftertaste. I’ve never had this ’legendary mexican sauce’ before but certainly seems to have added an interesting taste into the beer. The spiciness is definitely not a hop spiciness but definitely more on the red pepper side, though much milder than you’d expect. An interesting experimental beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is spicy, peppery, celery, cucumber skins and brown sugar. The taste is spicy, thick sweetness from malts, ripe cherries and dark brown sugar. I also get Italian pasta spices, peppers and earthy crusty garden salad. Weird brew.

TheBeerGod (5366) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with ruby notes around the edges. Short, thick beige head. Aroma is fruity with soft spices, chocolate and whole coffee beans. Taste is slightly spicy but mostly sweet with chocolate, big fruit flavors, coffee, and light caramel. Body is medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more spicy and fruity notes, light coffee, chocolate and caramel. This is different than I expected and that is appreciated.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Bomber. Poured crystal-clear deep garnet with a thick cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up sweet cocoa and redder fruits with accents of ancho chiles and earthy notes.. very sweet and syrupy, almost to a fault. The flavor was very salty throughout, with cocoa and caramel sweetness backing.. lightly-smoked anchos and vanilla bean surrounded.. rising coffee toward the finish. Medium-bodied on the palate with large sweet and salty character, not always in harmony.. I actually got a lot less mole character than I wanted, and too much sweetness.
