1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not my type of beer. Way too much of a coffee flavour for me. And it tastes thick like a smoothy.

Opaque black with dark tan head, brandy aroma. Coffee, anise, roasted malts. Alcohol malty lingering finish. Not refined perhaps, but lots to like in this RIS.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just what you would expect for a top notch RIS, heaps of coffee and chocolate with the roasted malts, also has hints of Brandy. Very dark, opaque, quickly fading light brown head. Rich roasted malts, chocolate covered cherry, Espresso, warming alcohol. Smooth texture, rich and chewy, really good, should we call this a dessert beer?

Bottle 355ml. Black appearance with a dark brown head. Nose is dark chocolate, coffee, prunes, and blackberries in the nose. Medium full body with an average carbonation. Pretty well balanced- moderate high sweetness and bitterness. Lots of chocolate, dark fruit, roasted malts and some light vegetables. The booze isn’t too much. Pretty decent stout!

Bottle. Almost black, opague. Roast, licorice and coffee in the aroma. Full bodied. Malty sweet alcoholic roasty flavor with ash, licorice and coffee. Rich in flavor and aroma. Lacks some complexity however.

In Bar Viriato. At lunch, with Pedro, Miguel, and David. With Papas Bravas. Soft taste and easy to drink, which makes it very dangerous because of its high ABV. However, Id prefer a bit more body

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle, consumed in a gypsy wagon, 9.8%. ’Maximum durability’ is Feb 2015. So I guess this has exceeded its maximum durability…Black, small brown head. Aroma is molasses, ash, touch of yeast. Body is medium, soft carbonation, slighlty foamy. Taste is ash, espresso, treacle. Finishes with some salty liquorice and ash. It’s a big one. Very decent.
