look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours chestnut with a pinky of mocha colored head. Some lacing & head retention

S: Some spicy red pepper & pears

T: Follows the nose, plus a bit of cocoa & a touch of nuttyness up front. Spicy pepper, pears, flat cola & dryness mix as this warms. Finishes with spicyness, a touch of pear & brown sugar & figgy notes

MF: Medium bodied with slight carbonation, thins out as it warms

This was interesting & drinkable, but not too mind-blowing. Give me Ska's spicy stout any day. Probably would pear nicely with food suggested on the label, doesn't really impress by itself

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hops, slight caramel malt, and a hint of spice (cinnamon?). Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. There is also a subtle heat from the peppers that presents itself after a few sips. Fits the style of an Herbed / Spiced Beer. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of spice, hint of hops, and a hint of pepper. Overall, decent aroma and blend, but the body is lacking in strength.

On tap at the Brewery. Pours a brown color with a small head and no lacing. Aroma of spice and cinnamon with bit of malt sweetness. Interesting flavor of cinnamon, spice and malt sweetness. Mild bitterness in the background with a fairly clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth with a creamy texture and unique balance. Enjoyable seasonal/ special beer but not for more than one.

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.
