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.

3.58/5 rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75
Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: very dark, rich brown color with just a hint of ruby highlights. Body appears to be haze-free, and the head is two fingers of fluffy brown foam with decent retention. I'm rather liking it!
Smell: caramel and chocolate notes; even a hint of toffee. Hops are a little on the vegetal side but are well within parameters. I think it's pretty decent.
Taste: a little bit roasty with a less-sweet character than the aroma. It's decent enough, but a little bit on the watery side, as though it's been a tad diluted.
Mouthfeel: light mouthfeel but a pretty strong carbonation. Interesting enough, but not terribly porter-ey.
Overall: highly drinkable; a porter you can quaff in the sun. I'm usually pretty impressed by darker Mexican beers anyway, and this isn't a bad foray into a craftier dark style.
