from the can. pours very black with a hint of orange in the grey head. aroma is light roast with a sugary caramel or chocolate- i can’t fucking tell which at the moment. bitter roast with a slight smoke. walt would approve of how i came to have 3 of these cans, it involves a 780 mile road trip, many different work conversations, and some girl i just met telling me we were going to brew beers together if i move to santa fe. nice chocolate roast flavor near the end of this, just gets richer as it warms. Fuck all y’all i miss my friend.

Dark black pour from a tallboy can. Nice roasted malt nose. Creamy mouthfeel, lots of roasted malt, piney hops, slight charred woody notes. Just a touch of malt sweetness before a nice hop and chocolate bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

Can thanks to cocoapuph! Pours opaque black with a medium brown creamy head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashes, cocoa. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, a bit of anise. Full and rich in the mouth. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. This is a hella good stout for those who don’t like them sweet.

473ml can from Elise. Deep burgundy brown-black body. Big rusty beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma. A really well done Stout, with Milk Stout tones for sure, but also a nice roasty edge. Has a really nice mouthfeel. Lots of depth. Solid.

Chocolate and roasted nuts on the nose. Completely opaque with not as much creamy tan head that I'd expect. Full in flavor. Lots of chocolate, some roasty burtness and good hop bitterness make this a very quaffable stout. Great? Maybe. Excellent? Probably not. Very good? Certainly.

Growler shared by someone at RBWG ’11 (notes). Pours a dark cola brown color with a small sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, toasted nuts, vanilla, cocoa, more dark and earthy bitterness, some brown sugar sweetness. Smooth, dry, tasty.

On tap at the brewery. Comes dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits, and coffee. Very tasty.

On tap at the brewery, the Malpais is everything you look for in an American Stout: rich caramel and chocolate sweetness on the nose and palate, framed by roasted notes, and a cleanly pleasant and subtle hop finish giving it an American touch on the European Export style. Excellent job!

Draft at tap room. Pours black with lots of khaki foam. Massive roasted malt on the nose. Very creamy and thick mouthfeell. Lots of licorice and malt and roast and some hoppiness on the tongue. Finish lingers a but which is awesome because this is a damn good stout.
