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!

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2012
A roasted malts, smoke, with notes of bitter coffee and chocolate nose. An opaque black pour with a foamy tan head and no lacing. Taste follows the nose - roasted malt, smoke, bitter coffee with notes of chocolate. Full bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, this is a brew I look forward each year and it never disappoints. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rodenbach99 (4164) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Style et résumé: Imperial stout.
Comment: Dégustation Manseau 2016.
Portrait: Une bière bien noire avec une mousse brune. Un nez fruité avec des touches d’iode médicinales. Une bouche tout aussi médicinale avec du chocolat et du cacao. Une certaine richesse dans la texture la rend agréable à boire.
Note: 7/10

tom10101 (5192) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle (22 oz) shared at tasting. From dresden, thanks! Black with a medium brown head, good retention, leaving some lacing. Flavor is of fudge and cocoa powder at first alongside mild to moderate chili presence, perfume, alcohol, coffee and mild fruitiness. Taste is not very sweet with a bit of heat from the alcohol and mild chocolate bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Vegetal finish. Too perfumy for my liking but there’s nice fudge/cocoa features and a little chili kick (which is weird considering it’s not in the ingredients list).

mathieuc (3247) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a medium black with a beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of roast, coffee and slight oxidation. I swear I got some chile peppers but I don’t see it in the commercial deScription. Oh well, must be some hot alcohol? Nothing bad, though, it adds just a small kick. Coffee otherwise. Medium body and carbonation. OK
