Out of all the beers I ordered, I was looking forward to this one the most.
Cerveza De Los Muertos’ Porter Pay The Ferryman. Back at the Clapham Grand Beer Festival a friend had one of the other beers from this company and it was rather nice. Upon seeing they did a porter, I was rather hopeful.
While its a porter (definetly in look) it doesn’t particularly taste like one. The normal coffee and chocolate tastes are either abscent or very muted. It took a little while to place.
This time was spent shooting lots of guards and blowing up anything that has red all over it. Just Cause 3 is proving to be a good collegue to the advent calendar. I hacked so many SAM sites in one base that when the Captain showed up in a helicopter, he was shot down before I could even get to him. The enemies seemed to destroy more of the base than I did. You have to love AI sometimes.
Once the taste clicked, I realised that to me, it tasted of a smoked ale. So similarities to the smokey German beer started going off in my brain but it doesn’t have the meatyness (totally not a made up word) that beer has. Add in a low level of carbonation and this is a rather tasty beer. Plus the art on the bottle looks really good.
