Bottle from grocery store in Barcelona. Thin pour and minimal white head. Very roast toasty aroma. Lots of malt. Flavor is a bit sour though and maybe a bit of an artificial malty flavor in the finish. Very thin for a stout but not bad for a spanish beer.

Bottled. A murky brown beer with a dark brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, slightly burnt, leading to a herbal finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

A Sim rate: bottle from Glaciar just off La Ramblas in Barca. It’s not bad. I say that as I expected the worst. One of my fave styles but not the best attempt. Roasty malt. Sweet toffee aroma. Sour notes. Doughy. Flavour is bitter and malty. Nice. I quite enjoyed it.

On tap at Bruxellensis 2008. Black with a big, creamy and lacing tan head. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate nose. Good roasted flavours throughout, dry. Relatively light-bodied, making me think more of a mild. So there is hope for Spain.

Bottle, courtesy of Yespr
Cloudy dark color; creamy head. It has a mild aroma of roasted malt and yeast. It has a pleasant coffee flavor, but the weak body and the extreme dryness don’t play positively for it.
