Sdaniel90 (404) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Pours an opaque black colour with a very slight reddish hue and a fluffy light brown head. Weak aroma, some earthiness and carbonation. Watery and quite flavorless, some bitterness towards the end but disappointing.

Percy0103 (203) - MEXICO - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle 500ml. A dark beer, slightly red at the bottom, with a huge brown head. I can´t comment on the aroma due to a cold. It has a faint bitter taste, but I can barely distinguish it and it is very watery. Definitely a beer I will forget by tomorrow.
