A rich, delicious stout. All the coffee and chocolate notes you could ever want. Not ridiculously heavy on the palate. A pretty dark, dark brown pour and frothy head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from trade. Thanks! Pours pitch black with a pretty creamy looking one finger dark khaki head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, some sweet molasses, a hint of hops. Flavor follows with a nutty note, some roasted coffee, roasted malts, sweet molasses and lightly bitter chocolate. Nice balance of the sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Super smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, with medium carbonation. This is a really nice beer.

Le Cumbre ain’t no one trick pony. Roasty coffee forward with a rich lightly sweet nuttiness. Creamy smooth palate.

draft at brewery, your standard, full bodied creamy roast stout. Very pleasant and well executed. A good beer to potentially barrel age...

Can. Black with frothy tan head. Big aroma of chocolate. Flavor is rich chocolate and a little coffee. Roasty and smooth. Not very smoky or chalky which is nice. La Cumbre has got their stuff together.

Tout est très aiguisé dans ce riche nectar. Les sucres aussitôt mutilés par la torréfaction persistent quand même et donnent du corps. Longue amertume assombrie, harmonie puissante, buvabilité biblique.

Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a black body with tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate candies. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with notes of light chocolate, sharpie, cocoa, bitter roast and earth. Nice stout.

Pours black in the glass with a hint of ruby red when held up to the light. Soft on the palate, very, very creamy. Dark roasted cocoa and coffee notes followed by an almond nutty aftertaste. Nice aroma of the same dark cocoa and coffee. Overall a wonderful brew. Thanks for BarZigKin for sharing!

The look is really dark, big tan head, and black in color. The smell is roasty, nuts, smokey, inky, charcoal, malt, and good. The taste is fruit, malt, roasted marshmallow, and nice.
