4.8/5  rDev +36%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours a clear, deep, red-brown color with an ivory head and pretty lacing. Aroma is a wonderful blend of earthy, dried chiles, and cocoa powder. Strong notes of cocoa are noticed immediately in flavor, followed by a brief hint of espresso, and a dried-chile heat in the end which lingers on the palate. Body is appropriately smooth (a burp after this stuff makes me wonder if I've just left a Mexican restaurant).

I think this is a must-try for any fan of southwestern food (mole sauce in particular) or experimental brews.

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

A - Pours a murky dark amber with a one-finger off-white foamy head.

S - Light green chilles and caramel sweetness.

T - Flavor has a nice malty sweetness with a light green chile flavor coming through in the finish. The chocolate is very light and hard to detect.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

O - This was a decent beer, but probably wouldn't drink again.
