Torrefacto (576) - Madrid, - JUN 19, 2013
Color negro opaco con espuma beige, moderada pero duradera. Aromas de café, torrefactos, pasas. En boca predomina un amargor intenso acafetado, quizá algo tosco, aunque esto es propio de las Irish stout. En general, consigue lo que busca, una Irish stout decente.

Sin duda la mejor sweet stout española, compensado cafe/amargor, buenas dosis de cacao , quizas un poco baja de cuerpo pero es una cerveza impresionante

OskarinBcn (17) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 24, 2014
La Montserrat de Guineu es una de las mejores Stouts que he probado. Es una cerveza catalana con sabor a chocolate amargo y un ligero punto a café. Color muy oscuro y aroma a malta torrefacta que se repite en el aroma.

Glouglouburp (6085) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
In short: A candy-like syrupy stout. Decent beer even if not my thing.
How: Bottle at Mosquito, Barcelona.
The look: Black body topped by a tan ring of foam.
In long: Nose is on the candy black liquorice and molasses. In mouth the beer has a slightly syrupy texture (unusual for a relatively low abv beer) and a medium carbonation. Taste is soft black liquorice candy, black jelly beans, some toffee, some molasses, chewing tobacco. A lot of sweet flavors but leafy hops dry out the finish nicely. This is a well-made beer but I’m just not very fond of that type of candy syrupy stout/porter, I prefer my session dark ales to be more roasted and drier. This one didn’t do it for me, and it really cranks my spine up that I don’t know if cranking my spine up means anything or if it is an expression I just made up.

This is really good. Beautiful looking beer. Aromas of anise, coconut, cream, chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Flavors are black coffee, wet dog, anise. Fizzy..kind of weird for a stout but still quality stuff here. Thanks Michaela for bringing this back for me from Spain. You’re a gem!

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Lightly hazy red - amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy. Slightly sweet and airy dark malts. Little cream and a touch of dark fruits. Light coffee. Light finish. Well integrated.
