Pours deep brown, with a very wide white foam head, excellent retention, filtered. Aroma is of malts, caramel, toffee, mild chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is well balanced, malty, sweet with a dry finish. Nice mexican beer.

cool to see the mexican craft beer scene really taking off. this is a random little brown ale, different from most, and uncommon in these parts for sure. it pours an explosive tan headed deep chocolate brown color, very little light passing through, and a tad of sediment. the head is well over an inch high, and it holds really nicely, relaxing to a nitro looking layer on top. it smells and tastes a little burnt, like they went just a little heavy on the roasted barley, it kind of takes over the lighter chocolate notes that appear on the front end, and the hop bitterness that is underneath here too. i like the more robust dark end for sure, but its a lot, especially in the aftertaste where a bitter ashy charred film stays on the tongue for awhile, its all i can taste half way through the beer. still, i like it being bold there, its memorable even if its a little out of proportion. there is a yeast flavor here too, which not many american style browns have, i like that aspect quite a bit, it softens the edges. super dry in the finish and carbonated fantastically well, enormously so for the style. overall a tasty brown, if you like the darker deeper side of the style, seek this one out. the mouthfeel is so expansive and hearty. cool brew.

Ruby brown to Brown pour (24+) with beige head; good clarity; long lasting thin cap; sport lace at best. Caramel malt and roast malt nose. Roast malt and roast coffee; semi sweet caramel malt; lite bitter roast finish. Lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Bitter roast with a minerally linger, which knocked this down a bit...

Serving: 12 oz bottle (labeled "01-03-17") poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance: Deep, clear, dark reddish brown with an amazing, creamy lush off white head that never quite recedes. Dense streaks of lace ring the glass.

Smell: Sweet caramel, dark fruit and roasted grains.

Taste: Firm, malty body with roasted grains, hints of coffee, brown sugar and dark fruit. Earthy bitterness and a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Big malt while remaining balanced, tasty and drinkable.

L- Dark blood red filtered body, amazing creamy ivory head.
S- Torrefacto. Sweet sugary glaezed coffee beans. The sweet aroma is stronger.
T- Again, torrefacto. Sweet sugar upfront, leaves a bold lingering roasted coffee aftertaste.
F- Rich, full and a little bit fizzy.
O- Great beer, would have been better if the roasted coffee taste was stronger to balance the sweetness.
