3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a dark brown with a beige head of foam around the edge of the glass. The aroma has notes of cocoa, charcoal, ash, roast. Taste is a muted, ashy, sweetness. Finishes a touch bitter. A very ashy beer. Medium to high carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A crafty Mexican beer. Black body no head or lacing. Aroma is kind of nice cocoa and milk also a bit burnt smelling. Taste is a let down. A touch of cocoa powder and roast but really watery. Not a lot of flavour. Well below average porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, twist off, and this one fairly easy to manage. Nose of roast and mocha, sweet and sticky chocolate notes not far behind, lightly scorched, some mild fruit in the bg. Pitch pour with a fizzy light brown head. Crisp and roasty medium-full body with light mocha and really pleasant soft roast into the finish. Off-dry with quickly-fading fruit sweetness, but the chocolate has also backed off; some coffee. Touch buttery but otherwise clean, refreshes, just wish it were a bit fuller.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter deep brown with a thin white head.
Aroma is roasted malts vanilla slight cocoa.
Flavor is quite pleasing for 5% ABV chocolate. As it warms up it the dryness comes out nicely. Light coffee makes this very drinkable.
Only drawback is it is a bit thin. But then a true porter isn’t a thick brew so perhaps I have enjoying too many stouts lately. ^8^. Adding that the bottle cap skull is so cool....true to the Mexican sugar skull/Day of the Dead.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with a large tan head. Smells of chocolate and hints of roast. Taste is mild chocolate, hints of caramel, and mild roast. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Dia de Los Muertos Pay the Ferryman Porter finishes with a quick, but sharp, dryness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black with a thick tan rim head, a few dots of lace. Taste is mild toasted malt that is quickly joined by bitter chocolate. Both drift unchanged to a light medium finish. Thin and watery, but it’s drinkable if there is nothing better.
