Pretty damned good, I can definitely taste the spices. Still, I like French Quarter better.

Although a relatively dense drink, I would like the chocolate flavors and mouthfeel to bump up just a tad. The cinnamon played very prominently throughout, with a shade of peppers providing just a hint of a bite. The beer's intensity and balance are increasingly powerful/volatile when taking larger drinks versus tasting sips.

Pours black with a tan head. The nose is sweet, with touches of nutmeg, cinnamon and chocolate. The taste starts out slightly sweet, the spices follow next, along with chocolate and a touch of vanilla. There is nearly no heat to speak of. The lactose helps out the body a bit, but it's still not overly impressive. All-in-all, it's a good spiced stout, but the spice proportions seem off, and the lack of heat takes away from the overall experience.

Wow!! This is quite simply outstanding!! This is my first encounter with one of the mole beers. The chiles come through with a very complex flavor. The beer is sweeter than a typical stout, which really works with the peppers. I get the cinnamon as a very tasteful background. The cocao comes through nice and strong. The vanilla is more pronounced than the cinnamon, but still sits pretty solidly in the background.

The mouthfeel could be better, as its a bit thin. The head dissipates quite quickly leaving just a dark liquid.

Wish I had bought more of these! I'll be on the hunt for more mole stouts. I think this one is quite a bit better than the boxed barrel aged temptress (that costs a lot more)!

I think a nitro version of this would be stellar!
