12 oz bottle stamped with a 12 July 2014 Best By date served in a snifter. Poured a very dark mahogany; clear with a small tan head and decent lacing. No sign of sediment.

The aroma is mainly of dark malts; slightly smokey with hints of roasted nuts and dark fruits.

Taste: similar to aroma, but lacking the power or depth it suggests.

Feel: smooth with a bit of dryness; good carbonation level; a tad too thin.

O: Tasty. One of the better Mexican beers I've had. .

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.

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown close to black with a very minimal head. The aroma is mostly malts, with some roasted nuts. The taste matches the aroma with the malt and the nuttiness. Overall, a good porter from Mexico.

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.

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 a beer.
