3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very tasty brew. Picked up a random 6 pack on clearance for 3 bucks. For that price, unbelievable. Very dark color with virtually no head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A very dark brown coloured beer with a ruby hue and a short-lived beige coloured head. The aroma is fruity and a little sour. Blackberries and chocolate noted. The taste is dusty chocolate and fruits. A tiny touch lactic. Tasty but lacking depth.

Pours a brown color with a nice off white head. Light lacing. Has a nice toasty dark malt aroma and flavor. Medium body. Decent beer. Worth a try.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Brownish red coloured. Dense light brown head. Sweet aroma full of brown sugar. Is somewhat artificial and has a buttery edge. Flavour reminds me a bit of some of the low alcohol - "malta" beers I’ve tried in some latin countries. Sweetness and sugar are a bit
subtle. Has a light flowery edge and light cocoa is notable. Medium bodied. Ends on a sweet matallic note.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half Time Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl - 330 ml bottle. Purs a dark ruby read with a decent mocha colored head - good lacing. Slight chemically aroma with some licorice and coffee notes - not half bad. Flavor has some burnt coffee notes, hints of chocolate and some ripening vegetables. Finishes with a hint of licorice. Mouthfeel is decently thick. Quite surprised - expected a drainpour -a Dunkel from Spain?

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is the second beer that I have encountered from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a trace of a tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is sour and light roasty on the finish. The flavor is sour, tangy and bitter with a hint of dark malts and a sour and tangy finish. Fairly macroish but tolerable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light malty aroma, maybe some hop. Extremely dark brown, almost black, color with a large frothy tannish head. Fading to light lacing. Thinnish mouthfeel, starts with light hop? Goes to chocolate with hints of coffee. Carbonation on the tongue, and some hop at the finish. The malt is so subdued, that this could be (almost) an ale. Maybe more a schwarzbier than a dunkle. Viva Espana!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Black beer with a fizzy head. The aroma is very lightly bitter, and the flavour is malty and quite bitter. Overall an OK dark lager type beer.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep brown with a very nice off-white head and fine lacing. Weak nose of malt and hops. Light caramel and malt flavour. Light to medium bodied.
I like the pleasant and rather strong bitter finish.
