3/17/15 (Bottle) Nice solid dark brown pour, no head, mild carbonation. Very pleasant coffee aroma, as well as coffee and malt.Roasted malt and chocolate are prevalent while drinking, a nice beer that is somewhat sweet and a bit harsh. Full flavor and texture, carbonation prevalent, nice feel and kick. Overall good offering, but sweeter than what I typically prefer.

Pours clear brown (appearing almost black) with ruby edges against the light, producing almost 2 fingers of fluffy, deep tan, shortlived head that leaves motes & a thin ring-like wash of lacing a half inch above the surface. Aroma is dark malt & brown bread, chocolate, toffee, roasted nuts & a hint of coffee. Taste is thinner than the nose, watery in fact, fronted by cola like caramel & roast with hints of chocolate & coffee, finishing with notes of heavily roasted (burnt) malt, more cola & a little smoke with a shortlived caramel cola, burnt, faintly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin, light to medium bodied, fairly heavily carbonated for the style, smooth, finishing with a little pepper. My first experience with a Mexican produced porter.

My new favorite porter, the look was basically spot on for what I look for in a porter and the smell was nice and like that of coffee and some earthy notes but not too strong. The taste was wonderful and wasn't too different but was exactly what I was expecting and had a nice malty finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and is among the best I have ever had in any beer I have ever had.

Deep, dark and somewhat deviant, the matra of the porter's namesake doesn't end there. One sip draws you into a toasty, chocolaty lull from which it's uncertain that we will return.

Handsomely tall and dark, the frothy porter patiently separates is ominous brown body from its mocha stained foam. Above which, a sultry scent stems forth in the form of coffee, nutty, chocolaty and marshmallowy enticement. Drifting upon the tongue, its lavish bittersweetness emerge.

Its savory dark flavor ensues in the form of those toasted marshmallows, nutty kona coffee, cocoa, and scorched toffee flavors. Beautiful in their long and lingering display, the porter slowly drifts into a bitterly toasted finish that relaxes its sweetness and allows the woodsy hops to frame a finish when you didn't see it coming.

Toasted dryness decorates the waning moments as soft fruit and spices of grape and fennel waft about in the beer's warmth. Its firm but medium body serves to a creamy-dry finish with a pleasant afterglow of coffee and dark chocolate reaching late. Paired with a sweet and nutty Swiss cheese and a marriage is made in an ominously dark heaven.

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.
