    Holy Mole'

    Any tried this one from Ska? Just showed up in ABQ and I'd like some feedback before I spring for a 6er.

    Thx

    I had it at SAVOR...and it was "ok".
    I'm not a big "peppered" beer fan, so it didn't really appeal to me personally.
    That aside; the mouth-feel was nice, low heat, good flavor (verbatim from my SAVOR notes).

    Go for it, what's the harm?

    Plenty of Mole beers seem to be hitting the scene after New Belgiums success with Coco Mole, I have had two other thus far, but neither have come close to NB's original. I will keep an eye out for this one.

    Normally i do not like chili/pepper beers, but the some heat with the high malt profile seems to be a nice combo.

    Left Hand's Fade to Black Vol 3 was good.

    Yup, Left Hand Fade to Black redefined what pepper beer could be about. It had a nice heat at the end of a nice porter. The heat was almost replacing a hop bitterness. I've since had New Holland El Mole Ocho and thought it was in the same league.

    I would recommend. Good well rounded flavors and spice.

    I saw this thread on Tapatalk yesterday while I was sitting at the bar...thought I should take a pic. That's the mole stout second from the right.

    I think it's decent. An interesting note as well: I was talking to the head brewer at SKA about the Mole', and mentioned NB's version (I believe it's Cocoa Mole'), and he said he was a bit perturbed because he had been working on this one for quite awhile - before other Mole' had actually come out (including NB's).

    Regardless, it's worth a try. I couldn't drink more than one, but it has good spice to it. Not a lot of heat to it. Probably would be a great Thanksgiving day beer as it surely won't be overpowered by food.

    I tried this beer on International Stout day at a local brewery. I was very glad I did as mentioned the pepper and high malt content make a very nice match. This beer was very easy to drink and unlike most stouts I could drink a lot of them.
