Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a small white head. Aroma has burnt notes but not much else. Flavour is very malty with smooth dark chocolate notes, some bread notes as well. A sweet, smooth finish. Very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In a bottle from Beers of Europe. Darkish black brown colour. Quite high carbonation. Some roasty flavours. Not overly dry, sweetish malts. Decent level of hop bitterness. A pleasant stout; would guess mouthfeel better on draught.

Bottle. Musty smell. Black. Not much head. Thin flavour disappoints. Pretty poor really, why bother?

Marrón muy oscura casi negra. Un dedo de espuma beige. Aroma a humo, algo rancio al principio. Cuerpo medio algo acuosa. Sabor muy agradable, primero ahumada, pronto suave caramelo de toffe, para acabar seca con un postgusto amargo duradero.

Bottle at home. Pours a red-black colour with a tight head. Aroma of rich, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is slightly sweet, then nicely dry and bitter. More dry bitterness to follow with a dusty, almost smoky feel. Plain and dry stout that is nonetheless satisfying. A very nice beer.
