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.

Professormalt (10) - Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1190) - Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 13, 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 wasn’t bad at all... I just wasn’t really vibing with it today. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood for it, but the flavors didn’t seem to harmonize like I wanted.

JMerritt (1746) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
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.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Red in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of chocolate, chili peppers and malt. Taste is of roasted chilis and chococlate.

maxwelldeux (3091) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2013
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.

Mittenator (1096) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
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.

DrSilverworm (5054) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Mostly clear but reddish / brown color. Spicy toasty flavor, with a weird vegetal flavor. Decent lace. Odd bitter, weird spiciness. Smooth carbonation, bigger body. Kind of creamy texture. More dry. Not my favorite flavor, but I can’t help but be interested in this. Very unique.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle 2011 vintage from App Vintner - pours dark clear red with a tan head. Aroma really opens up as it warms, with notes of chocolate, malt, and chilies. Taste is sweet with a thin mouth feel. Overall, I like it, though I wish it had a bit more body to balance the nice chile chocolate thing it has going on.
