In this beer blog, we are going to take a look at a new beer that just hit the market it is called Ska Mole Stout. I know the Ska Brewery pretty well but this beer caught my eye when at Countryside Bar. Ska Brewery was founded in 1995 by Bill Graham and Dave Thibodeau in Durango, Colorado. They put their everyday beers in cans or kegs. They barely use bottles. They brew several different beer styles. Their flagship beer is their India Pale Ale called Modus Hoperandi IPA. Let us get into the beers.
It is pitch black in color without a head. It has a slight chili to chocolate and toffee smell notes. The taste is about the same. It is really not drinkable beer. Great beer! However, towards the end of the beer, I needed some water.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I really enjoyed this beer at the beginning but towards the end I had another experience. I need some water or move on to the next beer pretty quickly. This chile peppers or powder in beer has been around for a long time in the brewing process. Most of the beers with peppers I have had I could not get through them. I do not like the burning down my throat but this one was a little different. There is a little balance with this beer but with the build up in my throat and mouth the burning came out towards the end. It is pretty interesting. I recommend this beer if you enjoy peppers and hot or spicy food which I know you will enjoy this beer. Please, let me know what you think of this beer. I have always wanted to sit down with someone who enjoy these beers. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
