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!

Black pour. Huge tan head. Tons of lacing. Aroma of coffee, malt, dark fruits, licorice. Taste is pretty close to the same. Fortunately not much licorice. A bit thin but decent.

Excellent beer by a local San Antonio brewery. I had this on tap. Dark as night. Coffee, roasted malty notes. Foamy head. Dense. The booze is there but not overpowering. Full body. Smooth wash down. A beer meant for deep Autumn or a cold Winter’s night.
