Poured on-tap in a taster at Haven Gastropub in Orange, Calif. Reviewed from notes.
A- Thin tan head. Little retention but laces quite well. Mahogany color with excellent clarity.
S- Cocoa and chili peppers, caramel. Nutty brown. Strange and spicy.
T- Extremely odd flavor. Spicy chilis and cocoa. Tastes musty and funky. Is actually somewhat spicy.
M- Very light feel with a strange dry, dusty flavor.
O- It's a weird beer. Not sure I would order it again.

Nice dark Carmel flavors with a slight hop taste,the chilli blends nice with the other spices, Looks good in the glass. Went well with with spice food. Many beers at 9 o/o have an alcohol after taste, this was not evident in this brew. The nice thing about the brew is the chilli is not over powering just a light after taste.

A: poured into my taster, this brew pours a caramel red with an average head. Nothing to special.
S: The aroma of this brew is just a hint of chocolate. A little pepper is present in the noise. Natural chile.
A: the flavor has a very ballanced pepper tasted with chocolate to mellow the peppers. the peppers kick on the back of the pallet.
MF: the mouth feel is a little thin and the carbination is light, but still the body of this brew can hold up....barely.
Overall a unique beer, worth the try.

I did not like this beer at all.
I saw it, liked the bottle, read the ingredients and thought that could be good. I was wrong.
Had a nice light brown color.
Poured almost flat with no head at all.
The taste was spicy chocolate in a bad way. Burning alcohol aftertaste.
I normally like all of New Belgiums creations but do not recommend this unless you wanna play a joke on someone,

Brown body becomes a translucent liquid, leaving behind sticky beads of lace. I remembered this being a stout but I was clearly wrong.
Fruity aroma starts things off, oddly, reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale. Spices, hints of green chiles, sweet malt. Meh, nothing special here.
Taste makes up for the shortfalls, blending spicy chiles, chocolate, dark fruits, and the malt base into a unique brew. Really needs more body, as the current incarnation is unacceptably weak.
All things considered, Cocoa Mole would be better as an imperial stout. Pretty good nonetheless.
