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.
