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!!

Can and snifter: my third one so I guess I better rate this now... Pours a deep brown with little head but okay lace and oily legs. The nose is roast, Mexican chocolate, Ancho and green pepper, leather, earth, and some grassy herbal hop vapours. The taste is well balanced sweet malts, chocolate, roast, and roast with a nice kick of chili heat. My only issue with this beer is the lack of body but then again it is a 5.5 ABV stout, so I can almost overlook that. Really the guys from Ska need to go over to Oscar Blues and pimp up Ten Fify with these spices. That would rock methinks.

Can poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cinnamon, cocoa, chilies anbd light roastiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of cinnamon, cocoia, chilies, light roastiness and light vanilla with a smooth warming lingering cinnamon cocoa finish.

Pours dark brown black with beige head. The aroma is big on cocoa powder and chili pepper with some chalky roasted notes under it. The flavor is similar with a sweet grain backing for a robust cocoa with a veggie based chili flavor very bold as well. Smooth sweet grains make it very palatable and easy to drink, overall a smooth beer, robust but not a slap on the face. Solid overall and great by style.

Didnít go in with the hugest expectation, but this one really surprised me in a very good way. Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has dark cocoa, roasted malt, fresh pepper spice, cinnamon, cream and vanilla - quite lovely overall. Medium / thin body with a modest amount of somewhat soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a nice blend of smooth roasted malt, cocoa nibs and phenolic spice. the finish some the light heat and meatiness of the peppers. There is a hint of the spices used, but I canít point out exactly what is there except that it seems to show some cinnamon. Really tasty.

Tasted from a 12oz. can. Pours dark brown with a bubbly head that fades quickly. Wonderful aroma of peppers and cocoa. You can taste the mole, but itís not overpowering. As a fan of both mole and stouts, this is a natural for me.

Near black pour with decent brown seafoamy head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is pretty fantastic cinnamon and cocoa. Flavor has more of the same but with the addition of some sweet chiles and more cocoa powder. Surprisingly thin and oily on the tongue. Gets better after the first few sips. Pretty decent actually. And awesome that it comes in a can.
