Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: soju6 on 05-21-2012

This amber ale is mildly malty medium bodied, 5.5% ABV and inspired by the mole sauces of Mexico. Our amber ale has been aged on cocoa nibs, ancho, chipotle, pasilla peppers and cinnamon bark. The resulting beer is red to brown with a pronounced chocolate, nutty nose, with hint of cinnamon and fruity raisin even tobacco flavors from the dried and smoked peppers. Flavor starts chocolaty and ends with spice from the cinnamon and a touch of heat from the chiles. Enjoy with dinner or by itself!

Darn it! What an odd beer.

The appearance is above average, the smell is fine...

Then you taste it. Hey that's not half ba.... wait... whut?

Downer of a finish when this medicinal peppery flair just dominates everything else. You can't get past it once you've reflected on the second half of that sip and it keeps eating away at you from there.

Certainly an "interesting" beer but if that's not the most assuring of attempts, you're right, it isn't.

Holy Mole is an amber/brown colored brew with a nose that is chocolaty and spicy, mainly cinnamon. The beer is very clean and leaves no lacing at all as you drink.

This beer has an interesting flavor profile that offers up some light roasted malt, chocolate, and spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. There is a touch of coffee as well and some caramel notes. There is other spiciness present due to the addition of peppers to the brew and it makes for an interesting flavor combination.

Holy Mole is different from the typical beer, both in flavor and appearance. The ingredients used are not like those of most beers and they combine for a one-of-a-kind taste. I’m not too thrilled with the appearance- the beer is a little too clean for me and it almost looks like a glass of cola when poured. But the flavor is better than average and helps me overlook some of the other qualities.

I don’t think I have ever tasted a beer that was brewed with cocoa nibs and peppers, but with Holy Mole in my glass, now I can say I have. It’s yet another good product from Mother’s Brewing and one certainly deserving of a try.
