4.25/5  rDev +32%

$ 2.19/11.2 oz twist-off bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma roasted malt
Head average (4 cm), light brown, frothy, sloooowly diminishing to 3 mm ring and 1 mm layer
Lacing OK – partial rings and islands of tiny bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with roasted malt and slightly sweet milk chocolate; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.5, Palate 4, Overall 4.125. Final weighted average 4.25.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the land of crappy lagers and slightly better ambers – but this is a porter which is both flavorful and cheap. It is only slightly sweet with the malt coming through and some hints of chocolate as well. Unfortunately the flavor quickly vanishes leaving behind only a wet mouth.

Pours a dark brown colour, light beige head that's just a rim. Decent but thin lace. Bit thin, yeah generally a bit lacking.

Smells chocolate grainy. Decent cocoa character, a bit of cereal gives a taste of cocoa pops. Not bad, but could use more oomph.

Taste is a bit sour upfront, just thin. Some chocolate character late-mid, but mostly just weakly bitter roast. Quite watery, tastes thin and largely disappointing.

Bit of fizz. Mostly thin, not a lot of texture.

Yeah, has mild portery character. But mostly watery and disappointing.

This beer pours a super dark black color with lots of bubbles and about a one inch cream colored head to it. It is nice in appearance however I thought it was odd for this style of beer not to really smell it while pouring. While the smell isn't bad at all it's just faint and not really easy to detect for me. It drinks smooth for a porter. Tastes of dark coffee and toasted malt flavor. It almost has a chocolate malt flavor going as well, I really like the flavor. It drinks kind of bubbly and it's not to smooth when it first hits the mouth due to that highly carbonated affect it has going but it's a very good tasting beer. Not my favorite for the style but overall I would buy this one again and it's smooth drinking for someone new to porters or dark beers. It doesn't leave that burnt coffee after taste like some do.

3.34/5  rDev +3.7%

A - Creamy off white head that doesn't want to go away. Lots of lacing and high carbonation at first. Black.

S- Aroma gives a bit of coffee malt but it's not very powerful.

T - roasted malt gives off a hint of coffee and after taste of chocolate. Maybe a bit of vanilla in there with hop undertones towards the back.

M - creamy upfront with a bit of carbonation at the back. Medium light bodied.

O - it's an inoffensive porter. Refreshing even.

11.2 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It is black, almost stout-like, in appearance. Two inches of tan head retreat almost immediately after the pour.

S - I smell some cocoa and dark chocolate, but the smell is off somehow. I can't place it, but there is just something off about the smell.

T - It tastes kind of lightstruck. Maybe that is the off smell. I get some dark chocolate in the finish. It got some off things going on. Not pleasant, but it could certainly be worse.

M - Medium

O - Even with the off taste and smell, it is still one of the best Mexican beers that I have had. It is way better than the typical skunked lager.

330 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head. Head retention is OK, and there's a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted and burnt/charred malt, bready malt and some chalkiness. The taste is better than the aroma, it's also similar to the aroma but there's the addition of some smoked malt, chocolate and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think it's an OK brew, but I'm glad I just bought a single of this instead of a 4 or 6 pack (whatever this comes in). Just an average porter for the most part. $1.73 a single.
