Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, - MAR 24, 2012
From 650ml bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a large mocha coloured head which settles down to a fine lace. Aroma is of spice (nutmeg, cinnamon), roasted malt, hops, some figgy aromas and dark chocolate. Nutmeg & cinnamon come through on the palate, with a nice attack of bitter hops & dark chocolate. Sweetness from the malt balances out this bitterness well, good carbonation tickles the tongue. All leads to a balanced bitter-sweet, drying finish. First ever beer from Mexico and I think I’ll be back for more!

A nice warm roasty Imperial Stout. Nearly opaque black pour with a finger of foamy head. The nose is sweet and a bit spicy with moderate roast and molasses malts. The finish is warm and mildly bitter. Nice beer overall.

Reimer96 (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Pours a clear dark brown with a red tinge & has a brown hat that leaves some lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roast malts and increasing alcohol as it warms up. Taste is chocolate & roasted malts up front with booze throughout.

Pours a dark brown-black colour with a small tan ring around the glass. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, coffee. Flavours of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, booze, and a dry coffee finish.

barn0216 (395) - California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Nearly black color, faint aroma of dark chocolate. Flavor profile is dominated by bitter coffee with a somewhat sour finish. Also detected slight sour on the nose; not sure if that is a component or indicative of a bad bottle. Pretty astringent as far as stouts go. Overall, a totally middle-of-the-road stout, drinkable but not my first choice.

bytemesis (2952) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown-black opaque with a medium light brown head that laces nicely. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, with slight bitter chocolate notes. Finish is surpizingly bitter, but not really from hops; more of a coffee bitterness. Somewhat astringent (thanks Mike B.). Good, not great.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle, shared with Ian at our first game night. Rich very dark brown opaque pour with a thick light brown cap. Aroma is chocolate and cinnamon, calling to mind the rectangular pink hard candies filled with a vein of chocolate that we would get at Christmas as a kid (my Nana called them "chicken bones" but I don’t know the real name). Bitter roast, dark chocolate, cinnamon, brown bread crusts, with a nice bitter hoppy finish. amazingly balanced, nicely flavoured, touch a great surprise! I think I’ll grab a couple more for the cellar.

northropfrye (2090) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Dark brown colour with off white head. Bubblegum, and a bit of a sour aroma. Taste is roasted malts, bubblegum, quite sweet. Less bitter/chocolate/coffee than a lot of beers in this style. Perhaps only the second good Mexican beer I’ve ever had.

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2012
Super dark brown with red hues up to a light, creamy medium brown head and 360 sticky lacing. Big smooth chocolate, mellow roasted malts - both in perfect harmony with each other. Faint spice and even a fainter fruit. I actually think I can smell citrus, biscuit. Maybe it’s orange based. Xmas spice makes its presence known after a while. The taste is also very nice. Mellow with a finishing mild bitter bite that builds a bit. Great malt blend with nice hops - this is a very well balanced beer. Light heat, not quite pine, orangy / grapefruit notes pop up after mid sip. Soft finish that lingers, light fruit and somewhat bitter finish with forward malts. This is a wonderful beer. So much to like and nothing to dislike.

650ml brown bottle. Deep brown-near black in colour, some deep red edges. Big creamy tan head, thick lace. Nose has lots of dark choclate and some roast. Taste is chocolately up front, black coffee and heavy roasted bitterness on the back end backed up by big finishing hops. Roasty dry finish, leafy hoppy aftertaste, pretty light on the alcohol, drinks very easily. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, not super aggressive but a nice balance of chocolate/roast/ hop going on that I enjoyed.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
650ml bottle pours dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some fantastic lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits and mild hops. Taste is dark fruity sweetness with a moderate hop and dark chocolate bitterness. Medium body with good carbonation leaving a nice bite on the tongue. A very well done stout that was quite tasty and thoroughly enjoyed.
