Slightly toasted coffee aroma and a full creamy body with a beautiful almost black and a nice tan top pouring from bottle, taste from coffee, caramel and a hint of chocolate at the end, reminded me a Guinness.

Stout dulce, con definidas notas tostadas, retrogusto corto. Esta bien si quieres una stout que no sea empalagosa ni con tanto sabor a chocolate.

Extrêmement noir, c’est impressionnant. Arôme brûlé de marrons, toasts fort grillés, de bois on est à la limite du fumé. Côté pruneaux ressort. Rappel un oolong. Hélas, le col tombe, bière plate et difficilement buvable. On est ici dans l’exercice extrême de la stout mais cette bouteille est difficilement buvable seul, être 3 pour partager 33 cl qui sont trop à mon goût. Arôme intéressant, mais au palais, moyen. Alcool peu présent.

Rod_beer (22) - DF, MEXICO - DEC 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2016 Pours a dark, almost black, brown color with small tan head. Coffee, chocolate and fruity aromas, roasted malt. Toasted coffee flavor, it has more of a watery mouth feel than the classic characteristic full body that stout beer has. That is probably its weakness. Not so bad, but there are better stouts.

Oakes (14834) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Dark brown, chocolate and coffee, subtle liquorice character and a long, sweet chocolatey finish. Full body. Good, complex stout.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light chocoffee and syrup. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, a touch of abv warmth, and grainy malt bitter finish. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy and thin.

Dark brown/black, tan head. Clean roast, earthy oats, biscuit, cocoa. Clean. A little on the thin side, but well-made overall.

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Draft at brewery (summer 2013): Probably my favorite Baja beer, among the ones I sampled. Smooth and creamy with a medium-to-full body. Healthy amount of roast with hints of dark chocolate, smoke, char and touch of vanilla. Decent amount of hops to boot, with notes of grass and citrus. Tasty stuff.

Dark brown color, small brown head. Some coffeish notes, sweetish caramel. Light to medium bodied. Watery palate, some chocolate, lingering hoppyness. Clean but a bit too watery.

Keg at the brewpub - Cabo. Pours clear brown with a khaki foam head. Not bad, plenty of earth, dry roast, supple cocoa, burn tobacco, moderate sweetness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Some cocoa to finish, burnt leaves, earthy bitterness, mild tobacco. Nice.
