2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Bier-Bier, Helsinki)
Odd maple aroma, sweet and heady. Sweet and sharp taste, not so good. Kinda thin palate, a bit flat. Some dusty roast in the finish. I do not recognise this as a stout, it’s closer to a schwarz. Has no esters - what temperature was this brewed at? The roasty aspects are quite pleasant, but all in all it’s a bit watery. The finish does have some nice drying bitter hops - yeah, those hops are good.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours dark brown with minimal tan head.
Aroma is vanilla, banana, toffee and a bad animal smell.
Thin and watery. Short finish. Bad.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Many thanks to TeddyBeer for this bottle! Dark in the glass with beige head. The beer starts slightly sour, but very stout-typical. Heavy and black, but not as thick as expected. Quite fresh and easy to drink, but noway watery - the beer is full of complex aroma, slightly dry and nice sour-malted balanced. Only the aftertaste could be a bit longer - it stays somewhere in the back of the mouth with its taste, but cannot cover the whole tongue with its aroma. Very interesting thing! Therefore it tends to loose its aftertaste quite medium to fast, but a roasted, dry and sourish stout-note remains quite long!
--> very interesting oatmeal stout! Dry, roasted barley and oats, stout-sourness and a really full body with a high drinkability!

An Spanish oatmeal stout, breakfast in Madrid with a Spanish tortilla pincho?, or perhaps you can try it with chocolate?.
I like this beer, I like this brewery.

Very nice pour and color. Body kinda weak. I like the smokey flavor. Other flavor s are typical chocolate, nutty. Sweet. Umami savory? Good job Virgin.

Pleasant mouthfeel, mild aroma, sweet flavor. This beer drinks nicely at 6.5. Yet another well-made beer from La Virgen, will be interesting to see what happens when they take a chance or too, as these guys know what they’re doing.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 Una negra que se hace deliciosa en el paladar, una explosión de sabor, de las mejores stouts que he probado y sin duda a mi gusto la mejor de las cervezas que elaboran en la virgen.
