Esta es una fuerte cerveza negra de alta fermentación que con su alto contenido de maltas tostadas tiene un paladar a chocolate y café muy reconocible y un aroma a caramelo, pasas y frutas secas. Abundantes cantidades de lúpulo Británico confieren a la cerveza un elegante contrapeso al fuerte carácter acaramelado y afrutado de esta cerveza. Como un toque personal le hemos añadido chiles selectos que por su característico sabor y fuerza le dan a esta cerveza aún más intensidad. Esta cerveza fué creada especialmente para acompañar platillos con mole, un manjar digno de la corte de cualquier imperio en el pasado, presente o futuro.

AdolfoCC (130) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 8, 2016
Servida en pinta Shaker. APARIENCIA: Completamente negra, no pasa la luz a través de ella, corona de espuma color beiga de baja retención, de burbuja amplia que se disipa rapidamente. AROMA: El ahumado de los chiles está presente, se siente algo licorosa, atrás las notas esperadas de una stout: café, chocolate, cacao, malta tostada, algunos frutos oscuros maduros. SABOR: de entrada, el gusto ahumado de los chiles se hace presente en el paladar, notas de café, chocolate amargo, cacao, frutos oscuros maduros discretamente, se siente el alcohol sin llegar a hastiar, atrás amargor moderado bajo, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: Cuerpo moderado algo oleoso, probablemente por el aceite del cacao, carbonatación baja. RESUMEN: una cerveza interesante, ya que los adjuntos se complementan de manera armoniosa, sin embargo ese gusto ahumado puede llegar a hastiar.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey’s place. Thanks Alexey. Black with a foamy tan head. Dried figs and some coconut aroma, smooth, cocoa nibs in the mouth. Quite fizzy, full body, slightly roasty, with a long, woodsy finish.

teorn88 (5860) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2016
33cl bottle at Club de la Cerveza, Playa del Carmen. It pours a very dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is medium sweet and lightly roasty, with notes of brown sugar, molasses, light roasted wood. Taste is also medium sweet with light roastiness and smoke, light nuts and roasted wood. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, quite tasty and decent effort

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Licorice, molasses and chocolate converge on this thick but solid Imperial Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the brown-edged darkness.
-Mild fruitiness is found under the sweet specialty malts.
-Carbonation is relatively low, making the residual sugars feel heavier.
-This isn’t world-class in its category, but it is a mighty fine brew considering where you are in the world to get it.

kidmartinek (4447) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Pours like oil with no head. Aroma is lactose, roasted barley and milk chocolate. Tastes like a milk stout, dark chocolate and has a sharp bite. Pretty tasty. I think they added some chili peppers which burn on the finish. ITs ok, but unexpected. half strength would be better.
