Bottle. Clear, dark red body with a medium beige head. Aroma is slightly roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is mild, sweet and slightly roasted. Served cold you may say it’s a dark beer for a hot day.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Clear, dark reddish-brown with a small beige head. The nose is a bit roasted and breadcrusts-like, with hints of coffee, but it could use a bit fruityness. The flavor is quite weak, with coffee, breadcrusts and cocoa. Medium-bodied with a quite dry finish with coffee. It lacks fruityness, but it is a quite nice spanish beer. (070208)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown, almost black with a really nice, light brown head. The first time I tasted it I liked it, I felt it was quite schwartzbier-like and found licorice and smoke. So I was disappointed to meet it again in Tenerife 2006, because it was way too sweet and malty, actually cloying, and had to be ice-cold to be drunk.

Bottled. (Thanks Dorqui) Dark brown in colour. Minor beige head, lacings. The aroma is malty.. syrup in a loaf of bread. The flavour is malty, burnt malt with syrup... It has a dry aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nose is lquoricey and dark with notes of coffee. This follows into the flavour which is roasted and rich but tastes like it’s full of additives. Reasonable but not amazing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma. Brown color, showing red when held up to the light, thin beige head. The flavor was sweet and malty, a little like molasses. The mouth feel was a little bit sticky with too much carbonation. Not great, but not bad.
