Draught. Marks for Appearance are an average, as beer was sampled in weak artificial light after dark. Fusels, raisins, ethanol, candi sugar ans some mushrooms aroma. Sweet taste, bread, and unidimensional, compared to the nose - more’s the pity. Well bodied, lots of alcohol and -burning, dangerously slick (in going down). Surprising beer for MX. And NOT bad. riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Reddish brown pour with a big tan head. Aroma is very malty and sweet with toffee and lots of ripe fruit. Similar flavors, very sweet, almost cloying with bit of booze and a floral finish. fonefan (48622) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2009

Clear medium amber color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, fruity, smoke - rubber notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, smoke - rubber notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours cloudy dark reddish brown color with tan head. Aromas of molasses and dark fruits. Big sweet flavors of caramel, molasses, raisins and figs. Alcohol is well hidden. The best beer I have ever had from Mexico. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Craig. marcus (10138) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 1, 2010

sampled during the 2011 RBWG weekendthanks to Craig for this, probably the strongest Mexican beer I’ll ever have. Pours ruby brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, candied sugar and nuts. Flavor is caramel all the way, not overly sweet, there is some fig/apricot fruityness as well but it’s a big malty beer.

Cask at Papago. Poured a clear dark orange color with an off white head. Smelled of pear, apple, grain alcohol, and flower blossom. Medium bodied, probably lightened up by the hefty alcohol presence. Moderately bitter and bone dry with a warming alcohol effect reminiscent of a nice peaty scotch. Very woody flavor with a tobacco accent. The flesh fruits in the aroma did not come out in the flavor. Interesting and unlike any barleywine Ive ever tasted. DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Medium reddish brown pour. Aromas of caramel malt and meyer lemon. Flavor has sweet malt, subtle floral hops, and candied lemon. It is a bit thin on the palate, and could be more refined overall. Not a bad offering. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle shared by ucusty - thanks, David! Pour was a bit dull, with a flattish body and bright hue. The nose wasn’t bad, with some maple and caramel in there. Waxy and somewhat thin palate. Lots of booze in the flavor, with somewhat predictable peat and molasses to give shape to the malts. Meh. Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Thanks ucusty. Copper colored with a tan head. Lots of caramel in the aroma as well as noticeable alcohol. Very boozy with caramel being about the only thing I pick up until a touch of smoke shows up near the finish. Interesting.
