A 330ml bottle found in an Irish shop just outside the city walls of the Southern Brittany (France) town of Vannes. Yes very random.
It pours a pitch black colour with a perfect 1/2 inch foam head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, coffee, licorice and roasted malt. Medium body, soft carbonation. The finish is roasted malt and slightly dry with a mild to medium bitterness. Overall a decent beer.

Very dark with strong coffee carmel flavor. Different than typical porters. Feel is thin.

Pay the Ferryman is ok. It poured an opaque black with no head and no lace. The scent had some cocoa. The taste was evenly balanced but slightly bland. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's worth a try but not overly fantastic.

Dark brown, extremely opaque. Head is a medium brown, very thick with superior retention but little lacing. Black olive, maple syrup, toffee, light berry, roasty aromas. Smoky tart is the most apt descriptor of the taste, a little complexity with hints of toffee/molasses and black olives throughout and a roastiness in the aftertaste. Reminiscent of certain American and Oatmeal Stouts on the nose and palate, but weaker so not as good. Medium-bodied, a little syrupy and sticky, and semi-smooth. Fine, weak and sparse carbonation, only adding to syrupy feel.

Poured a dark brown with two fingers of thick tan head that receded to a cap of tan foam. Overall impression of appearance is of a near perfect porter. Scents of bittersweet chocolate, roast malt and black licorice upfront with supporting aromas of bread crust, caramel and coffee with cream. Overall impression of aroma is of a pleasing, true to form porter, quite nice. Flavor begins with light burnt and roasted malt, with supporting notes of bittersweet chocolate and caramel. Middle gains in bitterness adding notes of cocoa to moderate roasted malt. Finish is bitter with notes of roasted malt, burnt malt and a light soapy off-flavor. Aftertaste is burnt malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a rather one-note porter with an impression of lightness and faintness to the flavors on display, even for a sessionable porter. While not terrible, there are certainly better porters available Mouthfeel is light bodied and slightly watery with high carbonation and a chalky finish. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a very light porter, with a rather weak body, even for a sessionable style. Overall this is merely okay. The aroma is standard but the thin flavor and mouthfeel serve as demerits to what should be a light, yet flavorful and creamy style. This makes the beer weak and underwhelming unlike better examples of the style. Worth it if you want to sample an easily available example of Mexican craft beer, but there are certainly better examples of porter available, many at lower price points.
