Bottle. Black with a dark brown tinge, the head is sizzling and disappears quickly. Aroma: wood, cocoa, coffee beans, light acetone, chili peppers eventually. Taste: medium hot chilis with cayenne and ancho in the finish, cocoa, light licorice, some cream, vanilla. Woody, dry finish. Medium bodied. For me, this isn’t too bad, but not completely successful.

From the can, black pour with a massive amount of green chiles and peppers in the nose, taste is cocoa with a nice chili pepper bite. The taste is not that far off cocoa mole from NB. Very good!!

Beaver (1639) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2012
12 oz can. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium fizzy light brown head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is nice mole spices - chocolate, cinnamon and chili.

The flavor is sweet chocolaty malts and cinnamon with a nice spicy chili kick in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a very nice mole beer - very similar to New Belgium’s version, but maybe a step below.

Can. Dark dark brown. Smells spicy- cinnamon spicy, slight smell of hot peppers, cola. Tastes like roasty cinnamon sugar toast with a finish of roasty chiles. Really great balance, really fun beer! Super good, highly suggest trying it!

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Cinnamon, chilies peppers and chocolate are the major aroma coming form a near black pour with little head Na little lacing. The taste is spicy - cinnamon, a nice chile pepper burn and chocolate notes. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, enjoyable but I wouldn't want to drink more than one at a time.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2012
Det här var ingen lätt sak, otroligt kryddig med lite mot slutet. Smaken präglas främst av kryddor (kanske lite kanel och ingefära) och maltigheten hamnar nästan helt utanför. Konstig sak som är alldeles för kolsyrad, men samtidigt är den alldeles för spännande för att avfärdas som dålig. Alltså; den är konstig och inte dålig.

Its light-medium brown head is quite airy, and only lives about 10-15 seconds before it fizzles away, leaving behind a completely headless, very dark brown colored beer with a lot of motionless matter in suspension. This is something you wouldn’t, obviously, notice if you drank it out of the can. On the nose, it speaks divinely of smooth, buttery chocolate with a slight kick of smokey, roasted chiles - with the spice of the chiles permeating your sinuses with each deep inhalation. In the mouth it’s a little more meaty, with much of its body seemingly coming from the chiles themselves. It has a moderate body (absent carbonation adds a dullness) , with a heft on the palate contributed solely by a dense combination of chocolate malt and chiles. The finish is clean, with only a hint of the flavor persisting. The dullness of the beer and an absence of any roasted bitterness, carbonation, or even a chile burn (that’s right, there’s practically  no burn to this) helps the beer wash down easy and fast and makes you crave the next sip almost immediately. It’s like candy in a can... if you like molé. Then again, how can you not like molé?

Can. Pours a deep brown, nearly black...rather viscous. Quick fading head. Aroma is spice, both sweet and chili. Taste is like a spicy gingerbread cookie...with chocolate chips. Nice balance between spice and sweet. Nice on a cool night.
