Had a few while in Guadalajara, out of all of Minerva's beers, this one is the one I liked the most.
I guess coming from the states im definitely spoiled so I was a bit let down, but I do like what Minerva is doing, hopefully they can focus on more agressive styles in the future.

I was highly impressed by this effort from Minerva. Had this in a bottle in Mexico City, and actually brought one home to add to the collection. The beer is true to the style, pouring a solid black color (although not a ton of head). Lacing is impressive.

Taste wise, it's a very good example of the style. Nothing too crazy - tastes slightly of coffee and chocolate, but light on the palate. I like that Minerva in this case stuck to the style, and produced not just a credible result, but actually a very good beer.

All in all, a solid step forward for the Mexican craft brewing scene. If you're looking for dark beers in Mexico, this is definitely one to try.

It pours pretty much black, with a thin tan head. The nose is roasted malt, charcoal, coffee, bitter chocolate and liquorice. The taste is roasted malt, rich coffee, light acidity, charcoal, bitter cocoa, hint of dark fruit, light liquorice, with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and a fine, prickly carbonation. Well balanced and pretty flavoursome. Another good effort.

A: Intense dark brown color almost black, when against light it cannot pass

S: Toasted malt, almost coffee can be sensed some caramel or brown sugar is at the back.

T: Really intense toasted feeling, certainly sweet at the beginning and bitter at the end, it is really a balanced combination that lets the bittersweet sensation.

M: Robust body that can be feel as creamy in the mouth, good starting and good ending, good balance for a stout but nos so bitter or heavy, alcohol good enough.

A: Looking is pretty good a dark brown color is almost confused with black, head is big with medium retentions and slow dissipation formed by brown small bubbles carbonation should be rich because it forms a thick permanent layer on top but as is too dark is not visible.

S: Nice aroma coffee notes along with the toasted barley malts, this beer is as expected.

T: Also tasting is good, but there is a little problem at the end with a faint flavor of something like soap, it starts with an intense toasted malt flavor, it has also some hops.

M: The sensations is balanced at some point the sweetness is mixed with the bitterness and it is balanced, the end is long but not as intense as could, some dry sensation is kept on the mouth.
