Color negro con reflejos caobas y densa espuma beige. Aromas de café dulce y vainilla. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce de vainilla bastante intenso que se une a un toque de café, aun dulce, para acabar con un amargor, tostado resinoso y seo. Muy rica.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours pitch black with a firm tan head. Nose is heavy roasted coffee, sweet vanilla and chocolate. Taste is huge. Powerful fresh espresso hit upfront. The sweet vanilla and chocolate notes round it off wonderfully. World class beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from Slick’s Liquor in Vista. Huge aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, resin, caramel, molasses, and liquorice. Pours black with a thick, creamy, tan head that lasts and leaves chunky lacing. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, has a slight mineral aftertaste, a bit too astringent. The coffee is a big presence, kind of dominates the aroma and flavor. This is a good one occasionally but it’s really aggressive and bitter, a sipper. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and long, sweet/bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan head. Heavy malt, chocolate, and sweet coffee aroma. Flavour is a terrific balance of dark malts, wood, vanilla, chocolate, and milk coffee. Starts fairly sweet but leaves off with a reasonable bitterness. A big beer. The last of a few good beers this night, Patrick passed out on the couch halfway through this. Eventually woke up startled and quaffed the rest.

Bottle. Black with a medium sized light brown head. Lots of coffee, earthy, roasted malt, vanilla, hazelnut. Medium/full body, oily/creamy texture, soft/medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Has a hazelnut coffee character to it and serves well at breakfast though it seems to accelerate the Stella 3 headache from yesterday.
