A: almost no head on a hazy deep mahogany brown body.

S: cocoa, chicken broth, roasted malts, black peppers and light chili spice.

T: very complex and interesting with cocoa almost like home made chocolate milk with perfect degree of chili spice. the sweetness and spiciness is very well balanced.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: this beer is very interesting and complex. It is actually really nicely balanced and unique in a good way.

Poured from a bomber into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Best enjoyed by January 19, 2017.

A: Dark brown body with a ruby tint. 1/2 finger of off-white head with average retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Strongly of mole sauce. Cinnamon and pepper. Earthy cocoa. Dark chocolate. Very faint smoke. Vanilla.

T: Sweet, chocolatey mole notes open with a noticeable capsaicin burn that develops quickly. The cocoa and peppers are bold. Roasted malts pop up, but remain mostly in the background and help fill out the flavor profile. Semi-dry finish with lingering mole and pepper heat in the aftertaste. Alcohol presence is light for 9% ABV, no doubt masked a bit by the peppers.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Not quite as full on the palate as your typical porter, but not too much of a detractor.

O: This beer really nailed mole. Nice chocolate and pepper notes. Enjoyable amount of heat. Pretty unique for sure. Arguably the best LOF offering I've tasted.

Prost!

A: Brownish red. Dark and ruddy. Head is big on first pour. It fades quickly. A lot of carbonation bubbles.

S: Whoa what great smells here. Sweet cinnamon. Pepper. Hints of nutmeg. Complex and inviting.

T: A bunch of sweetness on the front. No hoppiness but a lot of hot pepper notes as you continue. As the beer warms that pepper becomes more pronounced. Almost overwhelming. This is a change of pace beer for sure. Great pick for a special dinner or a celebratory night.

M: Light to medium. Dry on the finish as the beer warms.

O: Great stuff here. A lot going on and so much to savor. A fun one-off beer that is a great representation of this style.
