COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
9.1% ABV, 50 IBU A growing South Texas tradition, La Muerta is brewed each year for Da 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!

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 theres nice fudge/cocoa features and a little chili kick (which is weird considering its not in the ingredients list).

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 dont 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

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
La robe presque noire montre un col mousseux plutt tenace. Au nez, les notes rties, la fume et le chocolat montrent difficilement le chili. Au got, le chili montre ses dents et le chocolat se regroupe. En bouche, la bire montre une texture huileuse. En finale, des notes amres colores par la fume. Un bon stout qui manque nanmoins de corpulence.

JulienHuxley (5762) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle shared. Black pour with foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolaty, tons of cocoa, light chili. Taste is spicy, lots of cocoa, long lingering chili finish. Palate is full bodied, strong carbonation. Good.

Deep heavy dark brown with a thin light tan head. Deep cocoa and roast on the nose, a touch of earthy coffee as well. Smooth roasty flavor lots of chocolaty sweetness, roast, and a gentle bit of coffee. Complex and toasty and sweet and full.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a half finger mocha colored head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Slightly smokey, roasted aroma with dark and sweet malt notes, dark fruit and alcohol. Some charred wood along with dark chocolate, coffee bean, oatmeal, toffee and caramel. Some fudge/chocolate cake sweetness underneath, balancing out the smoked meat/burnt malts. Slightly viscous medium body with a nice balance of smokey, roasted malt, dark chocolate and sweet booze. Dry and toasty with lots of dark chocolate, coffee bean and oatmeal flavor but it never becomes acrid or overly burnt tasting. There is some chocolate cake, toffee and caramel sweetness balancing things out along with some strong booze in the finish. Plenty of alcohol flavor but never hot or harsh. Not overly complex but has a nice balance of roast, sweetness and alcohol. Tasty but definitely a sipper.
