Siren Caribbean Chocolate Mole Cake is quite a mouthful isn't it? I found the beer in the Salt Horse pub in Edinburgh and couldn't resist giving it a go. I do feel the need to say I usually try to drink local, but come on it's a chocolate cake beer so who cares that it's travelled right across Britain from near Reading. For the most part I've really enjoyed Siren's range so I'm hoping for another good one here. Siren Caribbean Chocolate Mole Cake pours about as black as a beer can pour with a virtually none existent white lacing head. What the beer lacks in head it more than makes up for with alcohol content though clocking in at an impressive 8.8%. It's not a beer to be taken lightly.
Caribbean Chocolate Mole Cake pretty much smells of an alcoholic caramel cake, so that's nice. The texture is about right, as it's pretty thick without feeling like you're drinking syrup, and I enjoyed the taste. There's plenty of strong chocolate notes, and just a little bit of spice to give it a kick. You'll find notes of coconut coming through as an aftertaste too. My only real complaint here is that Siren Caribbean Chocolate Mole Cake really does taste like a strong beer, I know it clocks in at 8.8%, but it could easily be 12% given how much involvement the alcohol has in the taste. Regardless though it's a good beer and well worth a 7.5 out of 10.
