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 (1545) - 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

Dr_Fellini (673) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy light brown head. A touch of roasted malts with a nice mild, not overwhelming, chili spiciness and a chocolatey sweetness. Similar flavor, but a touch of coffee shining through as well. A bit thin overall for an imperial stout, but enjoyable, with a nice lingering spicy chocolate.

Black, light brown lacing foam. Bitter coffee aroma, some spicy hints. Also coffee taste, but there is hot spicy tabosco there too. (Houston 201501)

jkwood04 (4327) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 25, 2015
22oz bottle (2013) in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some notes of chocolate and coffee, hints of smokiness and some dark fruits, hints of bitterness, and dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Smoother texture. A pretty good imperial stout but could be a little thicker and not as sweet.

suprchunk (2454) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2015
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.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours opaque black. Nose slightly soapy, green pepper, light roast, some dark chocolate. Taste bitter roast up front, light chocolate, very faint pepper. Mild bitter roast finish. Older bottle and seems a little flat.
