3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I purchased this 22oz bottle just off of the word mole. I’m a big fan of fine Mexican,not texmex, food. I was completely blown out of the water by this beer. I poured it into a pint glass and was not impressed one bit. I stuck my nose into this clear brown liquid with not much head and was even further sliding down the disappointment path. I’m not a big fan of the commercialiness that craft brewing has become, and in my personal experience the s**t that has been coming out of Fort Collins. With my rant complete, I took a swig of this beer, and while not with initial mouth taste, as there wasn’t much of one, I think I may have found a new favorite. This beer is exactically what the brewer intended. This is almost too complex a beer for the average palate. You take a healthy swig, it’s not heavy, you can drink, you think...not much to it, you inhale...and there it is! A great mole sauce! I’m almost without words, this is beer at a totally different level. This takes everything you think of any beer at any point of your life and makes you completely rethink it. If they can do this with a beer, what else can be done? I’m glad I tried this beer and will recommend it. Again I can’t put into words my surprise and approval of this beer. Cheers!
bomber pours dark brown with very thin tan head aroma and taste is chilies and cinnamon pretty hot on the throat Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber from The Coffee Grounds in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear color brown colored brew with a quick dissipating light tan head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of chocoalte malt, a hint of pepper, herbal spices and a touch of floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of chocoalte and mild peppers with a touch of basement cellar with smoke. Finish is neutral with aftertastes of smoked chocolate malt, chili pepper and some floral hops. Taboada (1455) - Compostela (Galiza), SPAIN - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle sample tasted at BBF Lab Madrid 2016 on the 02/07/2016. Dark amber, almost brown, colour with a lacing medium beige head. Aroma of cinnammon, mole and other spices. Taste is cinnamon, mole chiles and some caramel and chocolate. Aftertaste is great with spicy presence. A surprise on the mouth! Next one please! Bricks (1150) - Delaware, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Appearance is medium dark, somewhat lifeless. Smell is of peppers, some malt, cocoa. Taste is of sweetness and peppers. Nice aftertaste. Very different beer. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a motor oil black with a oily brown head. Aromas of chilis, coffee, and some chocolate. Astringent chocolate and coffee flavor, not much chili.

Great chile and cinnamon flavor. Smooth for the ABV. A contender for the crown established by Stone Xocoveza UXO (1922) - CANADA - APR 1, 2016
Appearance: clear brown with one finger of loose light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: roasty malts, chocolate, red berries, chilli pepper, caramel, cinnamon? (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild spice. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry building spicy finish. (3/5)
Not radically dissimilar to e.g. Prairie Artisan’s Christmas Bomb!, in that it has a decently integrated chilli spice, but the thinner body and lighter chocolate flavours don’t seem to work quite as well. Certainly I’m not getting the impression of Mexican hot chocolate or mole (molé? my research indicates no) sauce the way I did with Christmas Bomb! The upside here is that although the spice builds, it never becomes overwhelming. Pleasant, but not overly memorable. (13/20) BeerdedDave (1875) - Beckley, USA - MAR 20, 2016
brown with reddish highlights and a quickly dissipating head; roasted malt aroma with chili spice and alcohol notes; chocolate notes in the aroma come out more as it warms; semi sweet roasted malt with chocolate notes, chilis, and warm alcohol notes; just a bit of heat from the chilis; lots of chocolate and burnt brown sugar notes and slightly smoky chipotle notes minutemat (6045) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Draft @ The Flying Dog, Stockholm. Pours deep brown, off-white head. Chocolate aroma. Taste presents lots of chocolate with a chili kick on the finish. BrettTaylor (784) - Radford, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Poured from bomber into snifter. Pours a dark brown you can just barely see through with an almost white head; head dissipates but never goes away. Aroma is like Mexican hot chocolate - cocoa with sweet/spicy pepper notes. Taste - cocoa, slight spice that lingers throughout the finish, just enough to encourage another drink. Really tasty!
