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.

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.

Aubrey (3451) - 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.

laiti (5957) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
33 cl bottle (7%) @ PBF VIII
Aroma is sweetish with berries, some licorice, vanilla and raspberries. Watery palate. Flavour has salty licorice, say souce, peppery notes and herbal tones. Quite nice but the palate is just too thin. Also not like the other sweet stouts I’ve had.
