3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 una vera e propria sorpresa in quanto birra spagnola. Decise le note caramellate e di liquirizia, anche se non eccessive. Eccezionale dimostrazione che anche gli spagnoli sanno far birra.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line :
Caramel and chocolate malts are balanced out by pine-y hops in this very well-balanced, flavorful hoppy Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions :
.A veil of foam covers the blackness.
-Coniferous hops contribute enjoyable resinous bitterness.
-Chocolate malts also develop roastiness.
-A yeast touch is felt here and there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
clear, dark brown amber with a persistent head and light spots of lace. The taste is dark dried fruit on top of burnt caramel malt. It is balanced by burnt malt bittering in the finish. Overall, a little strong in the middle with too much dark fruit and malt, not enough crisp sweet caramel and/or bitter hops. OK.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNAG-11. It pours an unclear, dark brown body under a small, tan head. Roasted and fruity-sourish nose with dried fruits. Lighlty peppery in the flavor, some licorice too, as well as roasted flavors and the same fruityness found in the aroma. Full to medium body, dryish, with a roasted kind of bitterness in the end. A quite refreshing and tasteful one. 111015

Pours black into a tulip. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Sweet and sour pit fruit and chocolate aromas. Sharp with sweet chocolate and mild sour summer fruits upfront turning to bitter chocolate in the lasting.

Black with off white head - good malty aroma - solid dark malt body with some hints of dark fruits and some malt roastiness - this was quite good
