Weyerbacher Sunday Mole Stout

A few years ago, I tried Weyerbacher’s Sunday Morning Stout and was impressed by it. When I heard they put out a version with hot peppers, I had to have it.


ABV: 11.3%

Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “As the name suggests, this 11.3% ABV American Imperial Stout is the foundation of everyone’s favorite, Sunday Morning Stout, with a twist (and without the barrel aging)… This brew captures everything you’d expect from a traditional molé – coffee, chocolate, heat and smokiness. Foremost is coffee, which is followed by layers of chocolate courtesy of the chocolate malt, cocoa powder and cacao nibs. Finally, a subtle lingering heat and smokiness from our blend of ancho, pasilla, mulato and chipotle peppers, as well as cinnamon, which is gone by the time you’re ready for your next sip.”

Random: Now I’m craving mole.

The beer poured with a half a finger of tan head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was an inky black color with no visible carbonation. The nose was strong and filled with dark chocolate, cocoa powder and hot pepper. It had a slight alcohol note as well. The taste had dark chocolate, espresso, hot peppers, and cocoa powder. The booze wasn’t noticeable at all. It also had some cinnamon as well. The body was thick and oily with light carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with cocoa powder. The bottle was $4, which came to $.33 per ounce. This was an expensive beer, but worth every penny, especially if you like hot peppers.
