Bottle shared at a tasting at the Dancing Camel pub. Black, opaque with tan head. Pickle water, ripe fruit and raisins aroma, sweet, then a little bitter and very delicate fruity taste. Light body, mildly fruity finish. Quite nice, a little metallic finish, Easy to drink.

dexcansino (479) - Andalucía, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2013
Cerveza negra, con espuma similar a la de un expresso. Olor dulce. Sabor suave, a café americano, azucar de cańa. Presencia alcohólica. Muy bien equilibrado el cuerpo con el gas. Es muy refrescante para ser negra.

chinchill (2766) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2013
33 cl bottle, dated "Best By HLH12086"?, served in an American lager glass. Pours a very deep brown color with a nearly opaque body, but when held to a light a faint red hue shows. The tan head is medium size and resembles that of a root beer float. It is moderately durable and leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Purchased today {although best by date may be 8/12}, yet this is a bit skunky; the only skunky black beer I can remember. More of a problem in the aroma than the flavor. There’s a suggestion of hops in the nose with little in the flavor, and only a suggestion of medium malt in the nose with, thankfully, more in the flavor. More sweet than bitter, with some smoke in both the nose and mouth. M: Medium body; medium carbonation. O: needs to be revisited with a sample that is definitively fresh. Reason #1345 for a trip to Spain.

rubbishystuff (1979) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 From B&C. Would have been better if it wasn’t so much like coke. A little too sweet and a little too syrupy. Serving: Bottle

Bonita cerveza, con mejor presencia q sabor. Muy muy suave, con un poco de olor a café. Se puede tomar sí está, pero no creo que vuelva a comprarla.

flying_pig (1096) - SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2013
330ml Bottle from Lupe Pinto Deli, Glasgow (Ł1.49):
Rich, roasted malts aroma with a touch of sweetness and quite a bit of chocolate. There are a few hops but these are light and subtle. I could detect a touch of alcohol, some mild coffee and more sweetness with syrup as the drink settles.
Dark mahogany colour with red tinges and a bubbly looking, thin head that is a brownish white and settles about half a centimetre tall. There is a touch of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Sweet with nice roasted malts and a solid chocolate flavour. There is some light caramel and coffee with a nice earthy taste too.
Light medium & sweet with a good balance and a smooth, dry finish.

A definite step up from the other Alhambra beers I’ve tried. There was a great balance to the beer and the roasted malts are complimented beautifully by the sweetness and the touches of chocolate.
