11.2oz bottle from The Wine & Cheese Place in Clayton, MO outside of St. Louis. Pours a deep brown, almost black colored body with a two finger-width, dense and frothy, brown colored head that collapses slowly and leaves a layer of frothy lacing throughout the session. Aroma is sweet malts and a good amount of cocoa with some sour, dark fruits. Some caramel and a decent roast with some acidity, berries, and a touch of coffee. Flavor is pretty raw, hard roasted, acidic sweet malts with some chocolate and lactose sourness. More coffee and a few traces of caramel and more dark fruits before this finishes dry with a light coffee bitterness that leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and high, lively carbonation. Overall, an interesting stout. It seems at times that the roast, acidity, and sourness is too much, but then it seems to come back into balance. I don’t know, this isn’t bad, but it’s not great.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, small tan head. Roasted malt, milk, chocolate sweetness in the aroma. Flavor is much drier and bitter. Strange stout.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Pours very black with a huge foamy beige/tan head that clings. Smells sweet like a milk stout. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It seems a bit unsweet. Flavor is chocolate and burnt malt, though fairly smooth. It is pretty dry and pretty bitter. It is in fact delicious.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Brown pour, but light for a stout. Thin tan head. Roasty nose, with a little chocolate..very light body, sour lactic character with some roasty stout qualities...but super thin. Bitter and acidic. Weird. Again.

12 ounce bottle bought in City Beer I think. Pours a bit of gush, a dark brown color with a huge thick beige head- looks like a milkshake. A sweet milky nose; caramel and toasted malts. A smooth flavor; dry, milky, chocolates, lots of grain. Nice.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a beige head. The aroma has roasted grains, coffee, cardamom, and a little bit of caramel sweetness. The flavor has coffee, roasted grains, and a light sweetness. Pretty good.

armando629 (2413) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2010
0,33 l bottle as a gift from Spain.
Poured deep brown near black with a nice foamy pillowy tan- light beige head. Moderated but pleasant espresso-like aroma with some roasted grains, caramel. Medium bodied beer with a light sweet caramel, moderated roasted barley. Roasted aftertaste. Fine, drinkable, but not a dry stout rather a simple stout...

Pours large soapy-looking head with large bubbles. Tan colored head. Dark color colored body. Aroma is very unique. Scents of cardamom, perhaps nutmeg or clove. Aromas carry over lightly into the flavor. Thin body. Honestly, this tastes more like a black/dark lager than a stout. BTW: The label is in CATALAN, not Spanish, not that has anything to do with the taste. Just thought it was interesting.

Bottle at Churchkey. Very black with a large tan head. Aroma of cocoa and pepper. Flavor is is bitter chocolate, but very, very bitter. Very thin body. Smoky finish. Two bartenders had high opinions of this one, but three of us customers thought it was a drainpour. You decide.
