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.

Misc.: N/A

Poured an almost pitch black color with almost three fingers of frothy tan head. Nice amount of uneven foamy lacing along the sides. Fantastic lacing on the top all the way down.

Smelled dark chocolate, cocoa, faint coffee beans, caramel, toffee and smoky wood.

Tasted similar to the nose, although not quite as deep. Got dark chocolate, bitter coffee beans, caramel, toffee, faint smoky wood.

Medium-to-full body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter, warming finish.

I really liked this porter. Would definitely try it again.

From a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass, this Mexican porter pours a dark blackish brown with a light tan head that dissipates to a thin layer and light clinging lacing. Nose of chocolate and cocoa, and moderately roasted grains. Flavors are chocolate up front, light bittering cocoa on the sides, light toasted bread and grains to the rear, and lightly bitter grain aftertaste mingling with chocolate malts and a light hop. Not a bad porter in the least. A very good session style porter for those who like a bit of chocolate and roasted goodness to their brew. Good carbonation makes it an easy drinker. A good brew for a newbie to the darker side.

Pay the Ferryman Porter has a medium, beige, soapy head, a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, and lots of good lacing left behind. The aroma is of of sour, slightly burnt, brown bread crust, bread dough, malt, and maybe some chocolate syrup. Flavor is of all that with just the slightest bitterness in the background. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Pay the Ferryman Porter finishes wet, mellow, and good. It's worth trying.

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.
