Inspired by the flavors in mole. This version of our Smoked Baltic Porter uses four different chili varieties, roasted cacao, cinnamon and vanilla.

This has a spicy smoked ham flavor. Leaves a strong hot bite as it goes down. No chocolate flavored here. Had a draft pour at northdown. Pours black with a thin brown head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ Surly. Deep brown with red highlights. Nose of smoke and chocolate. Pretty ashy. Some espresso. Taste is surprisingly spicy. Roasted chili pepper and coffee. Rich chocolate malt. Robust and full. Oily. A bit too much heat for me.

Dark body. Taste has a touch of sweet roast but a fiery kick in the aftertaste though much more pleasant than some spiced need I’ve tried. Also a smokey Elment. Tastes about like a dunkel with spice.

On draft. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of smoke, chocolate, and a hint of green chili. Flavors are mostly dried red chili, cocoa powder, and wet wood, with some dark spice notes playing second fiddle. Medium bodied with a building heat. Nice for the first few sips, but I found the heat to get a bit overwhelming after a while.

Tap at Surly. Deep brown pour. Smaller head. Nice pepper nose. More pepper on taste - gets hotter late, but not over the top.

Sampled from the Firkin at Happy Gnome Firkin Fest 2015. Pours a clear dark amber brown with a bubbly light brown head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma has a nice smokiness with some sweet dark grains and a bit of spice. Flavor has more smoke coming through with a good amount of heat as well and a hint of sweetness and cinnamon in the finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Vanilla, cinnamon, some cocoa notes, smoky, caramel, and brown sugar aroma. Taste is nice cinnamon, pepper, smoky malt, cookie, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee with a touch of heat on the backend. Medium body with soft carbonation. Really tasty - much better than the original.

March 26, 2015 - on tap at Surly. Black pour with limited head. Aroma was smoke, chocolate and spice. Taste started with the sweet chocolate, moves into a light smoke and finishes with a mild peppery heat that sits in your throat for a while. I am not a fan of most moles, but this was fantastic.
