4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
