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 it’s 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.

The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with no head. The aroma is heavy on the peppers, with a lot of the roasted ancho notes coming through strongly. I also get a hint of chocolate and some roasted malt. The flavor is very nice. What really comes through early is some cinnamon and chocolate, as well as a hint of heat from the peppers. I also get some of the earthiness from the chilies as well as some nice chili flavor. The chocolate and chili notes meld very well together, with just the right amount of heat and sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice stout and I am glad more and more breweries are brewing beers similar to this one.

I love chili beers, and I love this one! Made with 3 different chilies, cocoa, pick up cinnamon and nutmeg. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can. There’s a lot of roasted, unsweetened cocoa here, and I was happy to taste only a subtle pepper aspect. These flavors pair up nicely within the mouthfeel and malty framework of a stout. This beer also manages to not be too filling, always an added bonus. This is a surprisingly good product from a brewery that lacked my high expectations. Ska Mole Stout is worth a try and it has a few layers of taste to dig through.

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?

12oz can. Poured pitch black. The aroma is pretty full and pulsing chili pepper and then with some modest malts in the background. The taste is much the same with solid chili pepperness and modest chili pepper heat. I can taste the skin of these here chili peppers. It tastes like they’re the green ones. It leaves a nice little peppery burn into the after taste. I liked it.

Beautiful black body with a thin tan head. Wonderfully inviting aroma of chocolate and spice. The palate is a bit thin, but very smooth. The flavor is sweet and chocolately up front, and that fades to a spicy finish. There's a bit of a hot pepper aftertaste. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
