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.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 La Cumbre is one if the best kept secrets escaping from New Mexico. This stout is smooth and simply incredible. Stout lovers will appreciate if you are fortunate to find on tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Made the mistake of trying this *after* the Acclimated IPA. Pint at the brewery. Pitch black with small creamy light brown head. Fair bit of lacing. Aroma is heavily caramel and chocolate roasted malt. Full bodied with creamy mouthfeel. This is intensely flavorful with coffee notes. Nice long finish. Nicely done.

My favorite La Cumbre offering, Iím good for 2+ growlers a week. Their "Chew and Swallow Stout" is right up there too but weíll have to wait ítil Fall to revisit that one Iím afraid. If I can see thru a beer, I donít want it. ;)

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!

GABF 2011. Oily black with a frothy light tan head. Dense aroma of roasted dark chocolate, black malts, and a touch of coffee grounds. Flavor of the same. Big full body with a long linger. No bitterness or hop profile present. Really dessert-like sweet, low on the burnt malt tones, with a touch of toffee thrown in. Dang good.

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.

On cask at the brewery. Opaque black color. Lasting tan head and lace. Very creamy mouthfeel. Medium body. Combination chocolate, roasted and licorice flavors. Nice.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2011 @ ABQ brewfest. Black with tan head. Rich chocolate aroma smells creamy and overflowing with roast. Whoa...the roast--itís so delicious! Super fín toasty coffee beans, slightly burnt, in a good way. More along the lines of a Danish Royal than a Guinness FES, in that itís more roast, less fruit. Love it. Rich and balanced.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a deep black with red at edges, tan head. The nose is really great. Lots of roast and cocoa. Very clean fermentation. Some molasses notes and a hint of anise as well. Lovely nose. On tasting, burly and creamy. Plenty of roast, sufficient bitterness. Light sweetness and more of the cocoa. Really great and balanced stout.

On tap at La Cumbre. Havenít had this in probably 4-5 months, but Iím glad I opted for it this time. Iím surprised this doesnít float more peopleís boats on here as itís very much the type of stout I enjoy. Grainy. Relatively lacking in chocolate. You get the dry, ashiness of dark chocolate in the finish, but not much. I really enjoy the malt character in the finish. Smooth and creamy. Maybe a bit too much hop bitterness.
