A copper brown ale with a thin moka head. A pleasant chocolate and light chile aroma, In mouth, a rather light chocolate malt, some nice fruity esters, some light peated notes. Quite nice. Bottle at Mondiale 2010.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a clear red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the peppers with some earth, dirt and caramel malts. The flavor is fresh green peppers (jalapenos or serranos) with some coffee, chocolate, caramel and earthy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The overall flavor of this beer is kind of a mess, but I liked it. Definitely an interesting idea from the brewers at New Holland.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with an off-white head over a hazed amber-brown body. Aroma of chocolate, green peppers and cinnamon. Taste is sweet, peppery, vegital and chocolate. Peppery and dry finish.

On tap. Poured dark brown with a gray brown head that dissipated completely. Aroma had some sweet chocolate and caramel with a backing chili note. Flavor was similar with sweeter notes such as chocolate with a slight backing of chilies.

zizzybalubba (1570) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap at The Thirsty Monk in Asheville, NC. Brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, mild chiles, and possibly just a hint of cumin. The flavor is chocolatey upfront with green pepper and jalapeno juice on the finish. Weird, interesting, and actually pretty good at first. I grew tired of this by the end of my glass but I applaud the effort and would have enjoyed a smaller glass.

Serving: Bottle.
It pours a reddish color with a thin, off-white ring for a head. The nose is rather unusual with notes of earth, smoke, and dried chilies. The taste is sweet with some earthiness and a light heat to it. The chilies and "mole" concept come through in tact. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a clean finish. While it is a bit on the sweet side, it’s a fun take on a beer.

Beerman6686 (5081) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
This poured almost a black color with a small biege head. Aroma was roasted malts, some chilies, and earthy hops. Flavor was a mild roasted porter or stout with light heat on it. Not bad for this type of beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2010
22oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Thought I’d give this (hella expensive) beer a shot after the Tyranena chipotle. Pours a thin, mostly clear brown with moderate carbonation. Hmm. Nose is quite nutty, with a mild coffee tinge (bean, not roast) amid the generally chocolatey aroma. Distractingly thin body, I have to say. Flavor has a hint of milkiness despite the thinness, like powdered milk or something. They’re clearly going for a bold brown ale with spices, but it’s really just some occasionally interesting spice notes amidst a less than satisfying beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5250) - 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.
