3.8/5  rDev +6.7%

12 ounce can into a glass. Best by 8 Feb 2015.

Dark color, very little head, thinnish mouthfeel.

Aroma and taste are what matters, and that's where I like this beer quite a bit. It is a mild and balanced blend of typical roasted malts (typical for a stout), somewhat muted in this beer, together with the "mole" flavors of red chile peppers, cocoa, and cinnamon.

Now I love chiles, and I love them strong, so to me, this beer is pretty mild. There isn't much heat from the peppers, just a nice tang and flavor. The cocoa is clearly present, but you wouldn't call this a chocolate stout or a milk stout. I think the flavors go well together, but then, I do love chocolate moles!

If you are also a mole lover, you should give this stout a try. If you're wary of red chile flavors, give it a pass.

Pitch black body with an initial thin head that fades to nearly nothing after a couple of minutes. Very mild roasted dark malts with muted peppery presence. Milk chocolate, vanilla, and soothing peppery flavors; a hint of anise. Rich, silky smooth body; heavy-weighted mouthfeel; lacks much carbonation.

A very rich tasting, pleasingly sensuous textured dark beer. The molé peppers are balanced just about right - subtle yet prominent enough to add depth and complexity to the rich sweetness of the malt grains. Like many chili pepper beers, the presence of a head is problematic as far as visual appeal goes, and the aroma is rather tame, but these minor quibbles shouldn't stop someone who wishes give their taste buds a treat.
