Appearance: The darkest shade of brown, nearly black, with absolutely no head. Aroma: a tingling pepper sensation with underlying notes of cocoa. With the beer being nearly black, there is no presence of chocolate or roast. As the beer warms, the heat from the peppers fades away and cinnamon spice becomes more apparent. Body: Medium bodied Carbonation: medium- low carbonation Flavor: The pepper flavor is there but not at all overwhelming. Cocoa is absent. Very minimal malt sweetness and no hop bitterness present. I wouldn’t say the flavor is all peppers, but it is defiantly the majority of it. As the beer warms up it is much the same as the aroma. Peppers aren’t as dominant as before, and cinnamon comes to the forefront. The cinnamon is not as powerful as the peppers were when the beer was first poured. Finish: As you swallow the beer, the peppers fade away and the cocoa is released, but after a few seconds the heat from the peppers returns. Throughout the whole beer there is always this subtle heat that lingers on the palate from the peppers. Worth trying, but would only have it again if it was paired with a complementary food dish.

Light brown. Aroma sort of explodes with cinnamon and jalapeño...uh... Why? That’s hatch...ok, what do hatch chiles have to do with mole? Ok so harsh chile and cinnamon. Again...what does this have to do with Mexico? This resembles none of the dozens of moles I’ve had in Puebla or Oaxaca. Just throwing stuff in a kettle for no reason.

Bomber. Pour is a very dark, opaque brown with no head. At all. Smells Very spicy/peppery, like fresh chili peppers, chocolate. Taste is very chocolately with a peppery cinnamon kick but it is somewhat thinner on the palate than expected. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the brewery. Pours dark nut brown with almost no head. Tastes like smooth cocoa, peppery spice, roasted malt, and a hint of coffee. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like cocoa, light spice, roasted malt, and coffee.

Hopmaestro (1306) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: ARoma of spices, chili and coffe. Roasted malts. Taste is surely chili in tha back and some malty chocolates up front. Some herbal touch in the aftertaste. Not really my stuff, but good.

På flaska som lagrat nåt år. Svart som synden. Tydlig kaffedoft med lite kanel/kryddnejlikodoft. Smakar kaffesump och lite chilli.

(En fût au Blind Lady Alehouse): Un corps mince soutient un bouquet d’épices massif avec une grande présence de la cannelle et du chocolat. Plutôt cohérent et facile à boire malgré l’exubérance des ingrédients.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Tap] Deep brown pour with very little head on top. Aromas of cocoa powder, molasses, cinnamon and some chili. Notes of toasted grains, lighter hot pepper heat, chocolate, nutmeg and toffee in the taste. The flavors are fine, but somewhat dull compared to the better chili stouts that have hit the market recently. Thin to medium in body. I wasn’t crazy about this one.
