Can @ home. T. Hanks, Jake. Black pour with a thin, short lived khaki head. Smells mostly like chili peppers. A lot of earth and spice, some roast, and cocoa. A hint of vanilla and cinnamon. Flavor is fairly spicy, acidic, and roasty. Somewhat bitter, unfortunately. Meh. Stale coffee, dusty, and dried chilis.

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.

Can from Bine & Vine. Pours "black" with a dark tan head. Aroma is very chile. Med body, almost. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate, and chile. Moderately warm chile. The burn is quite light compared to my expectations. It’s a fun drink, and well worth seeking out.

355ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Jet black, but a coca cola head. Fizz, gone. Beany beany aroma, both coffee and chilli beans. Quite a watery palate, crisp lovely balanced chilli pepper taste, fits in very well with th lovely roast. Nice coffee aspects too. Finiah is interesting, itstarts with a nice gentle chilli heat, then after 10 seconds a lovely stale coffee grounds roast takes over. As that fades, the chilli doesn’t leave you, It doesn’t pester you, but it comforts youand lets you know you’re not alone.
