look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Love the bottle - I’ll save it for a Halloween decoration next year. Smoky aroma has notes of roast malt and burnt wood. It pours a deep sable with a thick, though not persistent, tan head. Flavor is rather thin, smoky and malty with a snip of molasses but that’s all. Texture is on the thin side and barely fizzy. OK, not great, but palatable. Get your muerte on.

2.73/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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 +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

From notes
11.2oz bottle purchased at the Total Wine on Spokane’s north side for $1.49. According to the label, this is best before “10/05/14.” Don’t know if that’s meant to be October 5th or May 10th, but either way it hasn’t expired.

Poured a dark brown color, taking on a shade like polished mahogany when held up to light. Big, creamy tan head.

At first, all I could smell was a brown sugary sweetness. Once it warmed up a little, there was a coffee-like bitter aroma, along with a less welcome scent of minerals.

This tasted more like a dry example of a brown ale than a porter. It started off sweet, then became a little more astringent, and ended on a dry, mineralish note.

Dry, yet slightly watery mouthfeel.

Meh. Not horrible, but nothing I’d be interested in having again.

This porter, dark brown in color without being too thin but letting some light in, grows a tan head up to about half a finger. It shows moderate retention with lacing that manages slightly better than average.
It's got the malt backbone, strong enough for a porter but not breaking any ground, with a safe, run-of-the-mill roast. There's a bit more to it, though, as toast gives way to earth and nut, a little leaf showing a touch of hops and chocolate underlying. There's a bit of heaviness in the char, but not until later.
The flavor brings the char out more, and while it shows a good complexity it has a little too much of an acrid note that can't be entirely eased by the chocolaty undertone.
The feel isn't overtaken by sweetness, instead actually leaning a little chalky. Surprisingly, the acridity doesn't make too much of a mark in it. It's a little too crisp, in my mind, for a porter, and use just slightly more to its medium body.
