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!

Vint 2011 Dark black with a tall mocha head. Roasty, smoky nose with additional hints of leather and chocolate. Theres a slight vinyl tone on the back of the nose. Flavor follows through with plenty of smoky, mesquite character and a little charcoal even. Hints of raisin and coffee (burnt coffee) as well as the leather. Medium on full bodied with moderate, fine carb. Im glad to have tried this one, but I fear my aversion to smoke beers continues. Serving type: bottle 04-13-2012

Didnt really read up on this beer much before trying it. Didnt realize it was a smokey beer. 2013 Bottle. Deep black pour with a beautiful dark brown head. Aroma is of a very roasty smoke. Taste is smoke up front that seemed quite over powering, but actually subsides as you let the beer sit and warm up. Almost has a little bitterness to it. Over all its a pretty good beer. Im not much of a fan of smoked beers however, luckily this one isnt over smoked. Still, I almost feel like it could be an even better beer without the smoke.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours black with small tan head. Nose brings out smoky notes, meat and a touch of roast. Flavour brings loads of smoked notes, but not really in a pleasant way, like an ashtray instead. Some hints of oxidation as well. Not good at all. Bleh. Couldnt finish my glass.

65 cl bottle.
Pours jet black color with a small beige head. Aroma is quite woody and malty, some licorice and chocolate also, faint spicy notes too. Flavor of burnt malts, chocolate, vanilla and mild salty licorice. Smooth and creamy palate with a malty finish. Quite nice and tasty.

laiti (8249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
65 cl bottle @ Tampella
Aroma is odd with cocoa notes, some soy sauce and peppery (chili?) spices. Flavour has cocoa, smoky notes & chili (chipotle?). Also some soy sauce and licorice. Finishes with moldy cellar tones that do grow stronger towards the end of the glass. Feels a bit watery and too salty, but decent anyway.

tiong (6899) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
650ml bottle, thanks rosenbergh

Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of spices, roastiness, dark chocolate and hints of ash. Taste is smooth, slightly smoked and roasty with hints of ash, dark chocolate and spices. Finish is warming, spicy, touches of mold cellar and a bit stingy with hints of smoked roastiness and dark chocolate. Okay, a bit untypically spiced imperial stout.
