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!

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a nice black color with good carbonation leaving a nice tan head and some light lacing S: Big smoke with some cocoa, roasted malt and a light booze sting T: Immediate smokiness with blend of smoked meat, liquid smoke, light campfire and charred wood all rolled up into one. Cocoa, roasted malt and a light coffee note. M: Big body, loads of taste but to smokey for me. O: While it is a decent to good Imperial Stout the smokines and booze mix does not sit well with me

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, smoke and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet toasted smoke malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Tried the 2010 and 2011 side by side. Both full bodied, black in color, slick mouthfeel with semi soft carbonation. 2010- Flavor of dark chocolate, black malts, and smoke. Dry finish. Smoke has fallen out and blended with the base beer. 2011- same as 2010, but with a much more burnt wood smokiness that dominates.

kenjohn (88) - Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours up jet black with a thick brown head that falls to a brown layer of bubbles on the top. Smells like roast, chocolate, smoky campfire, bacon and burnt toast. Taste about the same as smell. Good drinkability.

look: 4 smell: 3.5 taste: 3.5 feel: 3.5 overall: 3.5 Bottle courtesy of Huhzubendah. Served in an Allagash tulip. Ouch. Pairs near black with a good lit mocha head. Light collar. The nose carries a heavy amount of chili and some roast. Light chocolate. Nothing too in depth in the flavor or aroma. Lots of chili. Probably too heavy. Medium body and a roasty finish. Boom.

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Dark color, thick brown head and thick lacing. Aroma of deep roasted malt and lots of dark chocolate. Taste is more dark chocolate, some roasted notes, very smooth. Mouthfeel is just about right, not too thick or chewy. Very drinkable-this was gone before I knew it.

Bottle to snifter (thanks Brad). Looks good; pitch black with thin lacing. Smells great! Malty and smoky. Tastes good; dry and malty. Mouthfeel is good too. Overall, a very tasty treat!

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 28, 2012
22 ounce bottle thanks to Craig. Tastes like eating roasted malts. Very grainy, interesting not the typical sweet malty chocolaty beer. Dry and easy drinking.
