Draft. Dark brown. Smells like itís going to be sweet, but itís more of a balanced chocolatey character. A bit watery in the finish....too macrobrewed for my tastes, restrained flavours.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My Bottom Line:
Tobacco and light roast meet caramel candy as earthen bitterness spoils part of the finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy brown.
-Light fruitiness roams about.
-Drinkability is decent.
-This is not a bad product; it just needs refinement on a few fronts.
On tap at Fiebre de Malta, Mexico City.

A deep dark porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, chocolate with butterscotch Ringwood yeast character and alcohol warmth. In mouth, good light chocolate malt with balanced butterscotch, coffee notes, nice.

Was having fun with this although for a second I thought it was the same as the dark one. HOwever it seemed to me that was more spicy. NIce dirty dark colour, not so watery as many porters and was a little sweet too.

Good beer. It has a toasted hops flavor, and it is bitter at the first and it has a sour back flavor. Also is sweet with the firsts tastes. It has a chocolate and candy alike flavor. It very thick.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 I had been looking for this beer for a while. Finally found it and tried it. Nice aroma, really dark with a beige creamy head. Usual chocolate flavors, some coffee and some smoked-roasted notes. Carbonation wasnít that balanced. Very nice. Not only itís not a myth, it does exist and itís very nice. One of the top 3 mexican beers I must say.

The aroma was a rich and malty, but it was served too cold, so the aroma got stronger as it warmed. This beer is a very dark brown (very little light passed through), with a thick beige head. The flavor was nutty, with hints of chocolate. It started very sweet, and finished smooth, but there was an odd feeling of carbonation to it. Out of all the beers brewed in Mexico that I have tried, this is easily the best.
