COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a meal in a glass. Brewed with 7 different malts and served cask-conditioned, you should be ready for a full onslaught of creamy stout intensity. Broadly in the style of a Foreign Extra Stout, this is our heaviest and most intense year-round offering.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
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.

At the brewpub on tap it has the color of chocolate fudge and the aroma of coffee it has the taste of coffee bit subtly lingering on the palate .
