This beer is named for the Battle of Puebla, since I first brewed it on Cinco De Mayo (which commemorates that battle). It is meant to be dark, and bitter with a fairly sweet finish.

The color is deep and dark black--without even a hint of red around the edges. The flavor had a bit of the Black Patent ash character, good strong coffee and chocolate. Hop bitterness is present but mostly hidden behind the malt. No hop aroma.

Note: I brew with local water that is dechlorinated and kettle salts calculated according to Bru'n Water Spread sheet. You may have to adjust your own water accordingly.
"So you say you just brewed your first batch of beer. Welcome to the obsession." --me, to every first time brewer I ever meet.
