@Borefts. The first Spanish beer I ever had that is actually good. Complex beer with lots of dark fruits and raisin. Nice warm notes of the oporto.

Oh, so nice and sticky this one and beautifully black color. Slightly sweet and with some sour notes, not as sweet as I would have expected from an Oporto barrel. Best Spanish beer I have had so far.
