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!

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a black body under a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and even more coffee. Some herbal hints. Supposed to be smoked, but I don’t detect that in the aroma. Some in the flavor though, which is also sweet, roasted and chocolatey. Not so much coffee. Full body and a soft carbonation. Coffee, roasted malts and some vanilla in the lasting finish. Alcohol notes all the way. A really nice one, tasteful and moreish. 140301
