The big VDay, I had an hankering for some chocolate-style beer. I’ve had my eye on New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series, Cocoa Molé for a while now. It was the perfect occasion to indulge my chocolate desires .
I’ll simply say, when Cocoa Molé hit my lips, my knees went weak. It was love at first taste. It’s immense flavors of cocoa, chili and cinnamon swirled in my mouth. This delicious dark ale is full of cocoa, and three types of peppers: ancho, guajillo and chipotle. You can taste the peppers, but it has quite a bit of caramel and chocolate malts for a fantastic fusion of flavor.
I enjoyed it so much, I polished off the bomber bottle, and a couple days later shared another with a couple of friends in the ski condo.
