Great chocolate and malty nose. Chilies are noticeable yet not very spicy. Overall it is a smooth drinking beer with chocolate notes and some alcohol punch.

I enjoy the new label on this one. Dark brown pour with lots of red, half inch beige head. Ashly, smokiness in the nose, cocoa, serrano peppers and citrus too. Low carbonation, tingly spicy mouthfeel, very slight though, dry tingly finish. Strange sour malt flavor likened to a scotch ale, in addition to the flavor of spicy peppers (without any heat to speak of) and ash. Not my favorite but worth trying.

2013 vintage; the chocolate, chiles and spices take over making it hard to tell what kind of base beer this is supposed to be. Expected a more richly flavored brew with a silky mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Tap: deep ruby & rustic red with a slightly off-khaki head that slowly settles to a thin layer of foam. Aroma contains light roast, vanilla, chili pepper spice, slight chipotle tones, & a back end touch of coffee grounds. Kind of all over the place, but not necessarily a bad thing. Taste has some sweet cocoa, a strange hint of tomato juice, fairly mild chipotle & chili pepper spices that start mid-palate & finish stronger. Not too hot, not even in the finish. Aftertaste has some mild vanilla, cocoa, & a touch of fading roast & spice. This beer wasnít bad at all... I just wasnít really vibing with it today. Maybe I wasnít in the mood for it, but the flavors didnít seem to harmonize like I wanted.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2013 vintage, bottled (10.5% abv). Dark brown with red highlights, clear, with a very small, tan head. Smoked chili pepper nose atop dark chocolates, cola and peppercorns. Brown sugar and dates in the flavor, the chilis definitely take a back seat, though they are there, faintly, in the finish. Mildly sour, stale bread and yeast in the aftertaste is a bummer of a sendoff. Interesting pepper aroma and sweet, malty and mild coffee base is solid, but the stale pumpernickel aftertaste kind of ruins it all.

From a bottle poured a dark amber color with almost no head. Strong spicy malty flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small off-white head. Nose definitely has some chocolate elements to it with just a hint of the spiciness. Taste is roasty and slightly chocolatey and very inviting. Really tasty beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Harrison Roadhouse (from backlog). I am not a big fan of mole. That being said, I really didn't like this. Odd spices fighting with one another. A four ounce flight pour was too much.
