Molé Stout is a brilliant autumn seasonal stout brewed with peppers, cocoa, and spices from Ska Brewing. It’s got traditional stout coloration, and is relatively uncarbonated with a head that quickly dissipates. The nose is dominated by espresso, with a bit of cocoa around the edges. The middle is mildly sweet with lots of chocolate and some a hint of chili oil that adds flavor, but not any discernible heat. The finish is oily and smooth with pepper and spice. This is an excellent complex stout, and the first beer my wife has ever proactively hunted for in our local Total Wine outlet after having a taste of mine.
I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
