A - Dark brown pour with some soapy lacing. There is some carbonation.

S - Smells of dark malts. Too sugary in the smell. Almost smell like a shwartzbier.

T - Really lame. Too much sugar and nothing from the malts in the taste.

M -Feel slightly watery. Light feel but maybe not balanced.

O - This is Tecate trying to do craft. Stay away.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

330 ml. capped bottle and poured into a shaker pint. Clear deep brown pour with crimson highlights and a thick and rocky inch of tan foam. Decent retention and light lace.

Aroma of light roast with a bit of chocolate and coffee. Touch of sweet fruit in the background. Aroma becomes a bit simpler with exposure and warming, quite opposite of what might be expected.

Taste is a bit less developed and a bit muted than the smell. Thin and somewhat ashen at times. This flavor segues to a rather light feel overall for the style. Opposite of the aroma, the taste improves slightly with exposure but remains a bit pedestrian.

Overall a fairly well executed yet 'light and simple' take on the stye.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing nearly opaque with ruby highlights at the edge; thin brown head that dissipates to a ring around the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, light coffee. Flavor is very mild toasted malt with hints of char, light coffee and and chocolate, fades away quickly to a nearly flavorless finish with hints of toasted malt and hops. Light bodied. This one got my hopes up, the aroma was pretty good and the initial taste is muted, but has nice char notes to the roasted malt and the light chocolate and coffee that adds character to a porter. But the flavor really fades away quickly, pretty disappointing. Maybe a gateway porter for someone who does not want toasted malt aftertaste. Resembles the kind of faux porter Coors would make if they bought out a Mexican brewery.

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.

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.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 5/8/2014. Pours clear nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, nuttiness, light coffee, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of light milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, nuttiness, light coffee, floral, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, nuttiness, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very watered down but pleasant flavor balance; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy and watery mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a mediocre porter. Not offensive in taste, but pleasant and smooth to drink otherwise.

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.
