About The Beer
Brewery: Pirate Life Brewing
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 355ml Can
Mole Negro is a dark and luxurious sauce hailing from Oaxaca in Mexico's south west. It's also the inspiration behind our latest collaboration beer with the crew at La Popular Taqueria.
Set for release at Tasting Australia festival in May, this imperial stout is brewed using wheat, oats, malted barley, Mosaic hops and a good whack of powdered cocoa. The spice additions come next (think cumin, marjoram and thyme), followed by four toasted chilli variants post fermentation - and you can thank the La Pop crew for that. It pours black, with ruby highlights. Expect aromas of fudge brownie, sarsaparilla and freshly cut chilli. On the palate, dark chocolate pairs with notes of bourbon barrel and smoky chipotle.
