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.

Bottle, bought in a supermarket in Barcelona.
Pours clear ruby-red brown with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly roasted, some raisins and chocolate. Medium carbonation, impressive dry mouthfeel. Flavour has chocolate, hard roasted malts, some berry notes and a long dry aftertaste with mild bitterness. Really a pleasant surprise.

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.
