Simple dark appearance with some head. Very good smell - dark fruit and a hint of alcohol. Surprisingly thick for 6.5%, not overall that thick but moreso than expected. Tastes of slightly bitter dark fruit, dark chocolate. Pretty good.

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!

Pours thick and black liquid. Low sized brown head, good retention. Cooffee and nuts aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation. Long, balanced finish, reminds me of nuts and black fruits. Taste is complex and excellently balanced; coofee, black chocolate, nuts, raisins.

Botella de 33 cl. de un negro intenso genera una pequeña capa de espuma. Inicialmente desprende un aroma floral alcoholizado y un intenso torrefacto. en boca el alcohol toma mayor protagonismo y no termina de acoplarse con el amargor de los lúpulos y los sabores a café y pasas.

Bottle, thnx to BRW, cheers. Pours a very dark, almost black beer with a big creamy beige head. Aroma of mocha, molasses, vanilla and caramel. Some coffee notes in there as well. Flavour is quite sweet and has coffee touches with sweet licorice influences. Very well balanced and not too overly sweet. Very nice beer and very promising for this brewery. Nice beer.

Bottle: Thanks Löwenbrau: Served in a Chouffe glass: Label mentions the ABV is 7.2:
Deep dark brown pour. Medium sized beige foamy head with a light light brown tint to it.
The body is black with a dark brown edge on the upper side of the glass.
Aromas of roast, coffee, chocolate, some flowers, some liquorice wood, toffee, caramel, some barley malt roast and hints of brown sugars and mocha.
The flavour is a good balanced mix of hops and some citrus with coffee, chocolate, roasted barley malts, hints of brown sugars, roast, bitters, liquorice and creamy yeast and barley malt tones. Very nice!
Aftertaste of malts, toast, porridge, cream, leaves and some hay toast.
Low carbo, soft creamy light oily texture, medium to full body and a thick creamy texture.
Very nice beer, excellent balanced, easy drinkable and close to being complex.
