Lips Of Faith - Cocoa Mole brewed by New Belgium Brewing - Fort Collins, CO

Cocoa Molé combines chocolate, cinnamon and plentiful ancho, guajillo and chipotle chilies for a sweet and spicy burst of flavor. Brewed with pale, caramel-80, chocolate, dark chocolate malts and a healthy dash of chocolate rye, Cocoa Molé presents midnight dark with a subtle reddish hue, lifting a pillowy, burnished head. It starts on the tongue with a swirl of chocolate malt that dissolves into the warm embers of a peppery heat. Alcohol by volume is nine percent and it will be available on draft and in 22-ounce bombers.


Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
The beer pours a thick amber brown with orange amber highlights when held to the light. A thick 1.5 finger cream color head with decent retention. Some lacing throughout. The aroma is very unique: cinnamon mixed with hints of chocolate and some pepper. Smells like my grandmother's cinnamon sugar cookies actually with some cocoa sprinkled in. The flavor is very much the same with an initial rush of sharp cinnamon immediately followed by the cocoa and caramel flavors. Mild bitterness. The peppers are most noticeable on the finish as you feel a little heat and a slight burn. Suddenly the heat fades and the cinnamon again mixes in. Quite complex and yet fairly smooth. Full bodied. Hides the alcohol well, I think most of the heat character is from the peppers. Overall, very happy to have tried it. Not a beer you'd want to pound all day but I enjoyed it. Would purchase again. It's nice that the chili isn't overwhelming as is often the case with so many brews made with chili, it settles in nicely with the cocoa, cinnamon, and caramel malts.


New Belgium Brewing Company Energy Practices
New Belgium Brewery has made it a goal to be entirely wind-powered. Rather than directly using wind-generated power, the brewery elects to pay an increased rate for their electrical energy, which is supplied by the City of Fort Collins Utilities to ensure it comes from the cleanest source possible. About 10% of the brewery's power comes from methane gas created as a byproduct of their on-site water treatment plant. The brewery also uses an energy-efficient kettle for the brewing process. The Steinecker Merlin kettle heats twice as quickly by boiling thin sheets of wort in the entire kettle at once. This provides significant savings in natural gas consumption.
