Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Roasty aroma with a bit of coffee and an olive note. Roasty flavor, rather dry, with a bit of coffee, and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

I for one thoroughly enjoyed this Spanish-brewed porter. Poured a solid dark brown with plenty of head and lacing. Aroma of sharp roastiness and caramel malt. Burnt sugar caramel and coffee roast in the taste, not picking up on the alcohol or astringent notes alleged by other reviewers. I thought this import was quite fresh and refreshing, with standard roasted malt notes. More roast malt than coffee or chocolate. Medium bodied and smooth. Drinkable!

Aromes de café, cacao, i un toc dolç. Fosca i bastant opaca, la escuma es bastant regular i duradera. Acabada de servir guanya el torrat i el café i a mida q sescalfa surt el malt i guanya la xocolata i el retrogust es bastant com de cremat. D’aspecte es maca i agradable i mes bona a mes temperatura.
