De gas esmorteït, bon retrogusst i bouquet però poc persistent en boca. L’amargor és la característica que més es perceb.

Not sure where I got this bottle. It’s a big bottle so hoping I can get through it. Enjoyed at cellar temp (60F) in a Duvel Tulip.

A - Intense carbonation even on a very delicate pour. Dark nut brown ale very cloudy 4 finger leather head with really nice lacing and subsided slowly.

S - Very musty leathery scent. roasted almonds. Very nutty.

T - Big carbonation makes flavours hard to detect. Old candy, burnt caramel and multi-grain bread. Sweet and like a cheap candy store toffee.

M - 100% carbonation. Medium body. bitter old candy finish with a hint of oak.

O - This tastes okay. It’s not great and I wouldn’t have it again. It’s also very big so I’m not happy to finish it.

Dark brown pour with a nice lasting beige head. Aroma earthy, coffee, and caramel. Roasted taste with coffee, nuts, caramel, and some hop bitterness. Pretty dry. Very enjoyable.

Thanks Javier for bringing this one! Nothing outstanding but still a good beer. Clean and fresh with no off flavors. Lite malt nose with a carmel nutty flavor. Thin, but enjoyable, good for warm days.

Shared by beerbastard! Pours a dark brown color with a soapy eggshell head. Aroma of caramel and hard candy. Taste is mostly sweet. Thin bodied with a fairly dry finish. Ok at best.

Reddish brown, cream colored head. Straight forward aroma of caramel malt, nuts. Creamy body, nuts and oats in the flavor.

Draft sampled @ Chez Moeder Lambic // thx to ajax25g // light brown with a tanned bubbly head // smell is sweet, definetly candy sugar, touch faro-like; caramel, fruity, definetly smell better than it taste but taste is far from bad // taste is sweet, candy sugar in here, faro-esque (no sourness here, just the kind of sweetness of a faro), caramel malts, spices, nuts, hint of lipton ice tea // soft carb, touch too light body for me // not bad, seems like Spain is coming up these days, will Spain become the new Italy? It is possible

Draft @ Moeder Lambic, Fontainas. Continuing the crusade for better Castilian beers, the beer sort of reminded me of a light Black IPA. Brune trouble, col léger blanc/beige. Arôme malt grillé, grains, houblonné assez fleuri avec un bouquet malté restant nettement plus en avant. En bouche, malt grillé, caramel sur ce finit rappelant des houblons US notamment de Northern Brewer rajoutant un agréable profile d’amertume. Le tout conserve une approche qui pour moi oscille entre un côté bien malté et cette balance houblonnée entre une belle amertume et pointe sèche de grains. Houblon est fleuri et herbacé avec une note de résine et de pin. Fin de bouche est collante aux lèvres. Belle découverte.

On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Dark brown body with soapy head. Very inviting. Nose is sweet with toffees, wheat and some citrus. Taste is roasty malts, some chocolate and coffee. Smooth texture. Very easy to drink and enjoyable.
