Pours the black color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, oatmeal, hint of hop, and a hint of chocolate. Fits the style of an English Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, alcohol, oatmeal, hint of hop, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and body.

"Brewed in the style of an English Porter". Available year round in 12 oz. 6 packs.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 51º Fahrenheit.

Pours a crisp frothy cocoa-tan head over a deep brown, near black body. Retention is average and lacing is light and spotty. The aroma combined notes of cocoa, roasted nut and toasted malt with secondary undertones of coffee bean and vanilla for a potent and detailed aroma. The flavor is similar, although slightly less full in body, with moderate roasted malt, ground coffee bean and vanilla the main characters of an lightly sweet body. The texture is slick, slightly chewy and somewhat thin with a medium crisp carbonation for a spritely, busy mouthfeel. The body is shy of medium for the style, medium+ overall. Balance is moderately earthy bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is very mild and off characters are minimal to none. Overall I found the aroma promising but the flavor itself lacking the same depth and character. While English porters are not traditionally sweet, I felt the dryness of this beer warranted a touch more viscosity and body to justify the flavors coming out. Certainly not a unenjoyable porter by any means, but not an exceptional one either.

Sampled also tonight on 5/17/14 while kickin' back on the upper patio deck after shopping and planting herbs and flowers on a beautiful 72 degrees Mid-May Saturday in the Mid-West. Comes in a neat 330ml (11.2 oz.) bottle with a cool label, love the artwork. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black really. A thin beige head is seen that lasts through the whole drink with some sticky lacing. The aroma is very nice of chocolate, caramel, roasted malts with a hint of toffee. The taste has more roasted malt that comes through more than the other flavors but you can taste the others mentioned above. Above average carbonation but very smooth and drinkable. Probably the best Mexican beer I have tasted to date.
