Bottled at PBF. Opaque near black, minimal head. Fruity rather neutral nose. Sweetish with medium-full body and clean, blown up mouthfeel. Some coffee flavours, but they seem wrapped in plastic. Low bitterness. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice too. Alquimia beers are quite reasonable. CReafty and very home made but fine. Quite creamy and not so black as other mexican porters.
