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

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.

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, I’m good for 2+ growlers a week. Their "Chew and Swallow Stout" is right up there too but we’ll have to wait ’til Fall to revisit that one I’m afraid. If I can see thru a beer, I don’t 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!

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.

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.

DiarmaidBHK (3733) - 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.

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!

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!!
