COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
9.1% ABV, 50 IBU A growing South Texas tradition, La Muerta is brewed each year for Día de los Muertos in honor of our departed friends and family. A big, lush Imperial Stout, La Muerta is full of roast, smoke and chocolate flavors from an array of specialty malts that go into this garnetblack ale. If you are holding this bottle, it means either you (or someone you know with a kind heart) boldly stood in line for hours on the first Saturday of November. Karma rewards those who give selflessly, so share with your closest compadres or a new friend. La Muerta will age wonderfully for years to come – we recommend enjoying one now and save some for the future, if you can. ¡Salud!

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle shared by CasyK...thanks Casey! - Pours dark with a little tan head. Smells roasty, with molasses, whiskey, and caramel. Lots of charcoal and tar in the taste, well-roasted malt, and a bit of meat. Interesting taste, but surprisingly it worked. Pretty big in the mouth--thick and chewy.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Tasted at the big “SeaBass has got to go” tasting courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Pours deep mahogany with thin mocha like head. The aroma is caramel, prunes, black strap molasses, some booze and chocolate. The taste is black strap molasses, a little bit of prune and super rich dark cherries. To midway malts move forward creating additional notes of chocolate and fudge. Into the finish it seems to be sort of rich yet thin molasses nectar mixing with dark roasted malts, yum.

hopscotch (8531) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle… Tampa “Farewell to Sebletitje” TastingThis beer rocks!… Pours very, very dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. The bouquet puts forth mocha, toasted nuts, a puff of campfire smoke, tobacco and a whisper of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a thick, chewy mouthfeel and supple carbonation. Deeply roasted grains, mocha, moderate alcohol and a subtle note of smoked malt in the flavor. Lengthy, mildly smoky, deeply roasted finish. Thanks to askofficerfriendly for sharing this treasure!

Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Brune foncée, pas de mousse. Chocolaté et malte, avec fine couche de caramel. On peut y détecter un léger nez et palais de malt fumé qui est suivi par du café.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
22oz bottle, #14/450 of the 2010 edition, courtesy of oakedcanuck. thanks, colin! pours an oily, jet-black with a thick, lasting, dark cocoa powder colored head with light lacing. aroma is great, spot on for an imperial stout from texas, with big notes of bbq smoke, campfire wood, and roasted malts backed by dark chocolate, toffee, and unique spice notes of red chilis and chipotle with a hint of mexican coffee as it warms. flavor is delicious as well with the bbq-smoked wood settling in nicely behind notes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and dark fruits with notes of vanilla, tobacco, and subtle, peppery spice on the back end. palate is full bodied, rich, and nicely carbonated with a long, roasted, smokey finish. overall, an outstanding imperial stout that i’m lucky to have tried.

Near black pour with a small brown head. Smoky roast aroma with some hints of chocolate and coffee. Roasty flavor follows right along with the aroma. Really good.
