Reddish brown color. Nice head, good lacing. Sweet, malty aroma. The flavor is full of espresso roasted malt and a sweet licorice finish. The best Spanish beer I've had.

Bottle. Nice coffee malt aroma with slight esters. Dark brown color with good head. Sweet creamy chocolate malt flavor but not too sweet - well balanced. One of the best Spanish beers I found - actually tasted like a beer.

I like stouts and dark beers for the most part. I just got back from a vacation to The Canary Islands. I drank quite a few of these. It was the best beer to choose from, in my opinion. It’s got a solid flavor that’s still easy on the palate. It’s sweet, but that’s how I like my beers. The finish lasted nice and long. I could taste the toffee in this one. Certainly a great beer to enjoy!

Aroma: Some Ovaltine malt drink at first, hazel nut, sweet, malty bread, a little burnt molasses.
Palate: Sweet but not cloying.
Flavor: Nutty, sweet, malty bread, molasses, yeast. Finishes a bit drier than it starts with bitter cocoa, molasses and slightly burnt coffee.
Comment: Better than I expected. For me it’s best drunk cold so as to keep the sweetness in check. I liked the evolution of sweet attack to a less sweet finish.

Una negra estupenda muy bien conseguida por el grupo mahou. Sorprende que no la intenten publicitar más...

Light to slightly medium bodied. Touch of cacao and coffee, though there is definitively also a hint of licorice. Well balanced. Kind to the mouth, little foam. Drinks away quickly. Nothing (that) special.
