33cl bottle thanks to Lowenbrau. Bottle was a little broken, so I had to drink it fast. Color is dark brown with no head (of course)... Aroma is alcohol and vinager :-D Just going to give it a 2,5 so it’s not unfair... I’ll rate this again someday...

Espuma casi inexistente y poco persistente. El aroma es intenso, a malta dulce y fruta. Sabor dulce y tostado, café, pasas. Amargor final suave. Cuerpo ligero o medio. No está mal.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle from lot #1348.my bottle says 7.5% abv. Anyhow, it’s a deep and dark brown one this. A small kinda islandy brown head is safely placed on the top. Nose vise this is lots of nice sweet dark chocolate blended with roasted malts and some salty soy tones. I’ll gladly admit that this smells pretty darn nice. Tastes nice also. It’s really sweet. Not directly lactose sweet but milk chocolate sweet in a way. A light oily feeling in the mouth and it’s just below average on the bubbles. Dark roasted malty flavors, tones of cocoa, butter cocoa and you can even sense the alcohol. This is actually not a bad one at all. 05.08.2014

Una Imperial Stout de Rubi, muy cerca de Barcelona. Muy negra, con sabor tostado, con algún matiz de ciruela pasa o uva. Poca carbonatación. Muy acertada.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Espresso dark imperial stout color with some head. The aroma is dark, abut roasty, malty and caramelly. The taste is coffee but surprisingly soft, which is not always good when talking imperial stout. Palate is soft too. Almost no aftertaste. Overall a quite good one but not exceptional.
