3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stou-iket aroma, edged in milk chocolate, little coffee in the background, not aggressive, burnt aspect well in background, subdued light brown head, a little flat. Flavor also mild, a little chocolate, a little medium roast, hint of toffee. Nowhere offensive or too, smooth & quality but not memorable. soft finish

Pint can pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Smells like German Chocolate cake, molasses, nutty, with complex malt bill aroma. Taste of lots of chicolate, dry roasted earthy malts ride from start to finish, hop bitterness toward the finish, with lingering roasted malts on the palate. Very nice!!

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.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2015 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.
