look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled on: 12/21/2011.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, amber-brown body with a medium-small, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Aromatic cinnamon powder is fairly large in the nose, but it is not entirely dominating the other notes smelling of semi-sweet chocolate, sugar encrusted bread, vanilla bean, and deseeded peppers.

Taste: Plenty of ground cinnamon scattered over caramel and chocolate maltiness with a fair degree of sweet. Pinch of vanilla sugar. Slightly roasty but there's also a sugary bready quality present. Follows through with an earthy, very slight vegetal taste from the chiles with the heat slowly accumulating across the tongue aided by the alcohol. Sweetish, cinnamon-laced, slightly spicy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Cocoa Mole is fairly good for a chile beer which can, if particularly one-note-ish (or even vaguely reminiscent of the nightmare-inducing Cave Creek Chili Beer), have a very limited appeal for me. So, again, good job, NB.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours an almost opaque dark amber/mahogany color with a half finger of off white head. The head fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: This beer smells really good. Chocolate notes with cinnamon and some chile pepper. Sweet malt and some dark fruit.

Taste: Like the smell. This is a fairly sweet beer. I'm getting some chocolate along with some cinnamon. The finish is where the hot pepper hear shows up. The heat enhances the other flavors and doesn't overpower them.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the syrupy side of medium with tingly carbonation and a dry/chalky finish.

Overall: This is a really good beer. It promised mole and it keeps that promise. I would definitely have more given the chance.

A - Pours with a small head of off-white foam on top of a hazy, dark-brown body. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves only minor lace.

S - Coco powder, chili powder, and cinnamon with some toffee malts in the background. Smells like a spice cabinet.

T - Sweet malt with some caramel syrup flavor up front. Lots of spicy character comes out in the middle with notes of chocolate, clove, cinnamon, allspice, and myriad other spices. Finishes sweet with more spices, coco, and caramel.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a fairly sweet finish.

D - Really interesting, this is unbalanced and weirdly milk chocolate like, but not undrinkable. It would best be described as similar to Mexican hot chocolate.

The LoF series has been very hit or miss for me, and same with chile beers, so hopefully this is good. Thanks to JonnyGalt (Reddit) for this one.

Pours a light fizzy barely covering head that fades pretty quickly, just a touch of lacing, maybe due to the abv, or possibly the chile, not sure, over a mostly clear cola brown colored beer with some mahogany light coming through.

Nose is interesting and kinda weird, there is some chile in the background, ancho or poblano like chile with a nice green chile aroma but doesn't seem much heat (at least from the aroma), as well as a weird chocolate aroma, cocoa that seems ot have been aged a bit too long, light creamy melted cocoa. Then some light cinnamon and hint of a nutty spicy like cardamom almost but not quite, as well as a biscuity like crusty bread crumbs almost like the edges of a pie or coffee cake. Under all that is some malts, caramel, molasses, some sweet brown malts.

Taste starts like hot cinnamon cocoa, a candy drink almost. Plenty of powdered fake cocoa mix like having a Swiss Miss hot chocolate, but there is plenty of cinnamon in there as well. Then heat kicks in, again not a ton but plenty to let you know it's there, as well as a green chile the ancho mostly, and some hot chiles, chipotle in the middle. Other light spices, again hint of an earthy nutty root like spice I can't really label, and light Xmas like spices but barely. Then malts kick in, some caramel, light molasses and biscuit again, hint of toffee, fair sweetness and other toasty brown malts. Light pie crust again, and coffee cake crumbs. In all that is a hint of booze warmth but that's mostly drowned out by the pepper heat. Finish is sticky and a bit syrupy, long lingering sweet caramel, molasses, some hot cocoa powder mixed to a thicker feel, some lingering heat from the peppers. The heat mostly dissipates fairly quickly, pops in to say hello, then goes back down below.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier bodied, plenty of pepper heat but not overbearing, lighter carbonation.

Overall pretty good, I like the pepper heat, it's a nice level that you def know it's there but doesn't destroy the beer, and even a light pepper flavor which is nice. The malts are nice as well, caramel mocha molasses, toasty bread crumbs, coffee cake, etc. I wasn't a huge fan of the cocoa as it tasted more like Swiss Miss hot cocoa powder rather than cocoa nibs and dark chocolate kinda taste. The cinnamon and other spices are interesting and a nice addition but I wish the cinnamon in particular was a little toned down. The lack of carbonation is probably the only real gripe I have. However, those are nit picking as this was a pretty good beer all around.

Well, this one takes no prisoners. Huge flavors, peppery hot, and big alcohol. I like the mix of ancho, guajillo, and chipotle peppers. Starts out hot but breathes into a warm and smokey richness. The chocolate is what make it less than drinkable. Nose is mostly cocoa with a little vanilla. Seems like a lot of body to go with the tart taste. Give this points for cojones, though. You'll want to sip this to savor the burn, if that's your idea of a good time.

Wondering what to drink for Day of the Dead? 22 oz bottle from Olive Tree in Ocean Beach.

Bottled on 12-21-2011. Poured into a tulip glass

Red brown cola color, small head, small bubbles, some lacing on glass.

Wonderful smell - like biting into a piece of Belgium chocolate with a subtle spicy note (definitely recalls Mexican hot chocolate). complex - Some roasted toasted layers too.

Hit first w/ chocolate taste up front (though less in comparison to the smell) - some herbal and roasty flavors layer in their as well. Fruity alcohol ending, with a small lingering spiciness that heats up. Great taste, some what sweet but balanced with heat.

A bit slick, perfect amount of carbonation, plays well off spices.

Quite enjoyable - esp as a after dinner valentines treat. Wouldn't drink it every day. Unique, better than other spiced beers that I've had.

Served on-draught into a stemgoblet at Beachwood BBQ's Seal Beach location. Cost was $6.50.

A: Pours a 1.5 finger head of good cream, good thickness, and good retention. Colour is a nontransparent solid black.

Sm: Vanila, cocoa, cream, and spices - maybe cinnamon. A mild strength aroma.

T: Cocoa, spices (cinnamon), caramelized dark malts, and a resurgence of spices towards the finish. A bit simple, without layering. Not real subtle or complex. Nicely balanced. Decently built. Not unique or special, but enjoyable.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Not enough cream. Near perfect thickness.

Dr: The vanilla is wonderful. Very drinkable - especially for the ABV (which is well hidden). I'd buy a bottle of it. Otherwise, it's not extraordinary. Give it a try if you like the style. Pricey.

22oz brown bomber.

LOOK: Deep mahogany hue, tight lacing

SMELL: Fresh chilies, raw cocoa, brown sugar, cinnamon, candied fruit

TASTE: Sweet maltiness within, creamy fullish body, full chili flavor, mild pepper heat, cinnamon, treacle, figgy, spicy throughout, reserved hoppiness, finishes spicy

This is a lovely brew, well rounded with a perfect balance of chili to cocoa to spice and still stays a beer.

Pours an effervescent brown tinged/orange witha thumb of tan head. Great lacing & average head rentention

S: Faint chiles & a bit dark fruit, a bit of cinnamon

T: Chiles, ciinnamon, a touch of boozey figs &cooca powder up front. Chile heat as this warms, a touch of jammy fig, plus apricot & cherry as this warms, then cinnamon, plus a bit of dryness. Finishes with chile heat, candied apricot & cinnamon

MF: Light/medium bodied with firm carbonation, some sweetness balances the heat fairly nicely

I enjoyed this, one of the better chile beers I've tried & one of the better Lips offerings I had as well

22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled on 1/29/2015. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, cherry, plum, fig, date, caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, toast, cinnamon, chile pepper, and herbal/spice earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of dark fruit, dark/bready malt and chili/spice notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, caramel, brown sugar, cocoa, toast, cinnamon, chile pepper, and herbal/spice earthiness. Some light roast/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, cocoa, caramel, toast, brown sugar, cinnamon, chile pepper, and herbal/spice earthiness on the finish for a while. Chile pepper heat builds up as you finish the glass, but doesn’t get overbearing. Fantastic complexity and robustness of dark fruit, dark/bready malt, and chile/spice flavors; with a great dark fruit/malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with a minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic chile spiced beer. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark fruit, dark/bready malt, and chile/spice flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the the ABV with the moderate heat from the peppers. A highly enjoyable offering.

Utter blackness, with a sweet looking light tannish head, resting above.

Aroma: soft, sweet, and cinnamon-y. Love it.

Taste: Smooth, rich, and spice, with cinnamon first, and then, blam, the pepper comes. A fierce first hit, then mellow, …next sip, again, sweet cinnamon, hot pepper. A swift 2-step, a spicy tango. Chocolate malt lurks below, provides sufficient support, and delivers deliciousness. Pepper heat coasts smoothly overhead. Everything is in the pocket, here, everything is right on and groovy.

The peppers never really burn, just scorch a little. Taste lingers on the palate enough to make you remember it was there, and urge you into another sip and gulp.
And now, they all come together, the chocolate, the cinnamon, the hot spicy peppers, all at once. I'm halfway through the glass and the symphony is striking louder and stronger inside the mouth.

Damn, this is interesting. Better than any chili pepper beer I've ever had, and better than most chocolate beers I've known. An interesting drinking experience that doesn't over-do it in any way, just keeps everything together, balanced, and drinkable. Mmm, chocolate comes back, keeping pace with pepper heat. Yum. Another hit from the Lips of Faith.

Bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a tulip.

A - Creamy tan foam settles to a thick collar, wispy partial cap, and a few splotches of lace. Transparent dark ruby body.

S - Tons of milky cocoa, biscuits, and toasty malts. There's some mild vegetal pepper and spice mixed in, and a hint of alcohol.

T - Taste is quite similar, with oodles of melted chocolate, toasty biscuits, and a mildly spicy and peppery finish. Alcohol is better-hidden here, and the cocoa elements dominate until the molé shows up a touch in the lingering aftertaste.

M - Smooth, medium-full body, with pleasant lower carbonation, and some peppery heat and spice in the finish.

D - This was pretty enjoyable. There are probably a bazillion calories in here, but it tastes great and the alcohol is quite well-hidden. I imagine it'd be tough to drink a whole bomber by myself, but it's a nice beer for sharing. Delivers exactly as promised - would drink again.

On tap at Barleys (SC).
Brown with a trace of red; dark and clear, with a moderate size but rather durable head.

The feel is a bit thin but otherwise good.

The chilies are quite evident from start to finish and on into a lasting warming in my belly. A nice dose of cinnamon too, with everything in balance. That is, nothing so strong as to mask other ingredients, including a nice chocolate note. But be forewarned, this is one of the hottest (spicy) beers I've ever had. I've upped my rating in recognition of the contrast between mouth burn (low) and GI warming (moderate-high) from the chili peppers.

O: Much enjoyed and recommended. I hope to have this again, but would be hesitant to tackle a 22oz bomber by myself.

At the time of this review this is the #1 Chile beer on the "Top Beers - Chile Beer" list. Beer poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a New Belgium globe glass, it is called planning ahead, look it up. Also at the time of this review, this is the #89 beer on the "Top Beers - New" list, the ever changing beer. This beer was very cinnamon forward and spicy on a dry finish, it was fine but 22 ounces of it was a lot.

Beer is brown and clear with a thin tan head of small bubbles, moderate to low carbonation, low retention, low lacing, looks fine.

Aroma is mildly chili pepper and cinnamon, cinnamon wins.

Beer is light in body, dry on the finish, all of the chili flavor comes in the finish, it is mildly hot, the forward of the beer almost tastes like chai with a little clove and a lot of cinnamon flavors, it was fine but I won't have it again.

A: Pours a clear very dark reddish brown in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of rich mahogany highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy beige head that reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to slightly stronger aromas of cinnamon, chocolate/cocoa, and chiles. Lighter aromas of roasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of roasted malts which is quickly overtaken by the moderate to strong flavors of spiced cocoa - cinnamon, chocolate, and chiles. Light amounts of spiciness mixed with a light to moderate amount of upfront sweetness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of warming/heat from the chiles.

O: Very enjoyable with a moderate amount of complexity to the flavors and aromas. This beer has a great aroma and a pretty good flavor, one I would definitely get again. Approachable even for folks that do not enjoy a lot of heat/spiciness.

Thanks to angelmonster for this one! Love the bottle art on it.

A: Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a very thin off-white head that has little retention, forming a ring on the top. Streaky, thin lacing forms.

S: The spices dominate here, it reminds me of churros, the fried Mexican dessert. Cinnamon sugar, a little cocoa, and faint peppers.

T: Some chocolate and caramel upfront, mixed with more cinnamon sugar in the middle. The peppers come out on the finish and give off a little bit of heat as the flavor lingers.

M: Medium bodied, rather smooth for a chili beer. Slight heat on the finish that lingers in the back of the throat.

O: Probably the best chili beer I have had to date. The level of heat is perfect and I really like the cinnamon aspect, it isn't muddled like other beers that use it.

On tap at Wine 101 in Wake Forest.

Poured a dark caramel-brown with little head. The nose is distinctly cocoa powder and cinnamon. The flavor is very intricate. At first cocoa dominates. As I took a few more sips the spices began to come through. There is some cinnamon and nutmeg as well as some cayenne pepper that leaves a tingly spice in the finish. Just like a good mole sauce, there are more intricacies here than one can explain. This is a medium bodied, smooth, lightly carbonated beer.

This is an intricate, complex beer. The flavors are unique and enjoyable. The ABV is big but it's still drinkable. If you enjoy cocoa and spices, you'll love this.

The beer pours a brownish-red color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and cocoa, with some light chili notes and some roasted malt. The flavor is a little more complex. There is a ton of milk chocolate and roasted green pepper notes, as well as some cream and some roasted malt. There is also a little bit of heat from the peppers. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice chocolate-chili beer, a style that has become more popular and I am always excited to try.

22oz bottle poured into my CBS snifter. It poured dark brown in color with a thin, bubbly head to it. Decent lacing as I drank it.

The Cinnamon is the first thing I notice in the aroma. I get some of the spicy peppers, but isn't really in your face peppery. A good amount of malty, caramel, brown sugar flavors help keep it pretty smooth. Just a hint of chocolate is there. Pretty nice aroma to it, it's very flavorful but everything comes together well.

The taste shows more of the cinnamon spice and malty sweetness to it up front. The finish is where the spicy peppers really start to come out. The peppers bring a little heat to them, but not an overpowering hotness. The flavor profile really compliments the peppers well and it feels pretty smooth for a pepper beer.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall I thought it was a very good beer, they really managed to bring all the flavors together in it. I don't typically think peppers work that well in beer, but in this one they did. A lot of bold flavors and ingredients in it, but they came together very well. I really liked the uniqueness to it as well. Very well done beer overall.

Poured from the bottle, into a shaker pint glass.

A nice dark chestnut body hits on the pour, fairly clear and deep with some real nice ruby hues along the edges. Head provides a nice light tan caramel and uniform sense with a nice puck while settling also.

Nose hits with cayenne pepper, and a milk stout chocolate bent. Spiced mexicali chocolate and hot cocoa sense gives off a feeling this is more like hot chocolate. Interesting, kind of fun.

Palate brings all the nose together. Drying red cayenne sense in the palate, finishing with a nice mixed milk chocolate sweetness. Peppers hotness brings the feeling of a warm cocoa with the drink. Mouthfeel hits nicely coating very well with out a controlled boozy sense. Sweetness and hot dry spice is balanced nicely.

This may not be the most amazing beer by any stretch but it's quite fun and enjoyable, that I must say.

An interesting beer, this one. Dark brown pour, looks black/reddish in the glass. Head is white, which surprised me a bit. I assumed it would be tan or some darker color than white. In addition the head was small, maybe a fingernail. Lacing was non existent

Nice aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, and roasted malt. Cinnamon is quite strong, perhaps boosted a bit by the chili pepper.

Chocolate and cinnamon dominate. Hints of vanilla and caramel. It's a smooth taste albeit not very complex. Seems rich without the thickness. It is good

The feel is a touch thin. Carbonation is slight. The chili peppers give a bit of a burn on the end, very slight, but enough to notice and to break the richness of the flavors.

alcohol is well hidden

Doesn't this sound a lot like "guacamole"? On-tap at New Belgium itself, on to the beer:

Going to the darker side, this chile beer is dark brown colored with stringy lace. At points, it looks like it's black. The nose is what I would expect from a Mexican hot chocolate; good doses of choocolate, chile peppers, and a light smokiness all complimenting each other and not overly dominate. If you're not a fan of spicy stuff, there may be a chance you like the beginging of how Cocoa Molé goes, with its sweet and rich hot chocolate-like flavor. But then you're on your own, as the spice starts to work in, and is especially most intense in the aftertaste. That said, I wouldn't say the spicy heat is over the top as it can be in some beers. The beer is medium bodied, and it's somewhat balanced considering what it is, which helps the beer get down.

I like this. Finding a good spicy beer on the open market is not something you come across everyday, so pick it up if you're into something new.

A really wonderful beer. I'm not a huge fan of chile beers since so many of them are unbalanced, with heat and not much else. This one is dubbed as a mole, and I have to say, it truly does taste like a mole. You get a nicely balanced melange of flavors, with some nice ancho chile, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, and some black pepper, along with some moderate malty sweetness. The nose is more cinnamon and chile with a hint of sweetness. The spice level is just right- to start with, it's a warming roasty heat, rather than a sharp, biting spice. Using the right kind of chiles helps. Here there are ancho, guajillo, and chipotle, so you get a warm, fruity, smokiness with moderate heat, not the sort of bright fruity heat of habaneros or the sharp herbalness and spice if jalapenos or birds eyes. The rounded fruitiness and roasty notes here blend very well with the other flavors and presents a lovely, integrated whole with the heat slowly building to a pleasant tingling, and the spice and vanilla notes echoing in the background after the base has been built by the chocolate and malt. The best Lips of Faith offering I've had in a while. Very nice indeed.

Clear brown colored beer with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells sweet and mildly smoky fruity chile pepper scent. Chocolate and cinnamon scents.

Starts out sweet with a strong cinnamon and chocolate taste. Mild chest warming. Pepper heat is mild. Slight tobacco taste.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Interesting beer to try once, a bit too sweet for me.

S: Big cinnamon and chipotle notes. Light cocoa character. Smells like Hunahpu's light.

T: Lightly spicy peppers with cinnamon. Cocoa blends with earthy notes. Strong chipotle profile. Spicy cocoa finish.

M: Lower medium body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: An okay beer, definitely interesting, but I wouldn't drink more than four ounces of it.
