Wonderful spice and malt aroma from the neck. Pours dark amber, looking like an old ale with a nice off-white head. Aroma is a complex blend spices, malt, chocolate, cinnamon, peppers. Flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, herbal, and chilis. medium mouthfeel with nice legs and a LOT of flavor staying power. This beer would be superb to cook with as well, like maybe for fresh oysters. Very nicely done specialty brew! tasted from the bottle @ 60F.
We first tasted the beer at Strange Brewfest and were very excited to find out it had been bottled!

Say Hola to a spiced up ale full of cocoa and ancho, guajillo, chipotle peppers. But don't fear the heat, because plenty of caramel and chocolate malts bring a smooth, complex flavor to our Cocoa Molé. Scents of cinnamon when poured will have you saying, "Ole for molé!"

Aroma from the neck is malty, roasted, and carmelized sugar. Pours very dark red with a frothy tan head. The head itself has a hoppy aroma and takes a while to flatten down. Nice legs! Lightly carbonated with a medium to thick body, and nutty malt flavor. Malt forward with a muted but tasty bitter hop on the finish. This is a well balanced sweet stout with just enough hop flavor to make it an interesting and easy to drink stout. Even a bit creamy and slightly sticky with a hint of coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and biscuit. Tasted from the bottle @ 54F.
