This is the most interesting of the Lips of Faith beers I have had.Poured a deep mahogany brown with a thin tannish colored head atop.Smells of chocolate,vanilla bean,and cinnamon,to me like Mexican hot chocolate,really cool.A bunch of stuff going on on the palate with chocolate being predominant as well vanilla,cinnamon and chili comes into play at the back end providing a slow burn.A little light in the mouth but thats the only small drawback to the beer,it's the most interesting take on a chile beer I have had.

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.

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.

On tap at Barleys (SC - 3/2013) and from a 22 oz bottle on Xmas 2015.

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 the warming in my beily. A nice dose of cinnamon too, with everything in balance. That is, nothing is so strong as to mask all of the other ingredients, including a nice chocolate note. But be forewarned, this is one of the hottest (spicy) beers I’ve ever had

Overall: Much enjoyed and recommended.

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.

Thanks for sharing this, Richard.

The pour is almost mahogany in color with a khaki colored head. A really enjoyable spice aroma. Lots of cinnamon and peppers (though to a lesser degree). The chocolate is pronounced and gives a nice sweetness. Some serious raisin and plum character, too. Pleasantly sweet in terms of the flavor. Lots of chocolate and fruit notes with a sweet bready quality. Good spice and pepper flavor with a subtle earthiness. Really well done all around.

I tried this on tap at brewhouse grille in Camp Hill, served chilled in a New Belgium goblet.

The color is dark almost black with translucent clarity and thin pale tan head with fine bead and decent retention. The smell is nice with a malt sweetness mixed with cinnamon-like aroma with mild yeast ester and toasted malt aroma. The feel is great with good base of toasted malt with moderate carbonation and moderate spice which is well balanced with some heat from the pepper in the finish.

The taste is very good with nice earthy cocoa flavor with a slight malt sweetness to keep it from tasting too dry with nutty yet also a slight spicy pepper taste in the middle w/ warming quality and cocoa flavor following with light cinnamon accent in the sem-dry finish. I love this mix of chile with cocoa and cinnamon I just wish it had a more substantial porter base. It is a very good beer, don't get me wrong the spice carries it for me, but basically a Chile beer with cinnamon and cocoa

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle to tulip.

A - Medium brown; very slightly translucent. A small amount of cream coloured head formed on the pour and immediately disappeared.

S - Roast, spice and spicy chillies. Not much chocolate at all in the nose.

T - Roast, chocolate and chillies with a bit of a kick. Some cinnamon is present in the finish. The chillies completely dominate and drown out the other elements of the beer. I couldn't get through more than a few sips of this one.

M - Light body. Moderate to high carbonation.

A: poured a dark brown in color with brown highlights and had a little head which left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: there was plenty of chocolate malts noticeable on the nose with some spice, some cocoa sweetness but mole pepper character to it as well.

T: I loved how it had good chocolate cocoa sweetness upfront and great mole pepper spiciness on the finish. It had various spices, and a slight syrupy sweet flavor to it.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, chocolatey, pepper spice, mole, and hot spicey finish.

O: this brew was very interesting and very tasty, I would love to have this beer again and again.

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

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.

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.
