Tannish colored fluffy head, good retention and lacing. Medium brown color with a slight red hue. Sweet malty aroma with notes of breadiness and almost no perceivable hop aroma. Surprisingly medium low bodied for a stout. Very enjoyable flavors of roasted malt and nice sweetness. Finishes chocolaty and refreshing. My scoring is based more on the fact that I enjoyed the beer than whether or not it met style guidelines.

dreamflower (584) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Beautiful thick foamy head contrasts with the deep dark colour. Smells of smokey coffee with a tart tinge to it. A little bitter.

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2014
(bottle - 330 ml) Dark brown pour with a tan head. Roasted chocolate aroma with some dark fruit and wine hints. Flavor is very dry and roasted at the start with a very dry and bitter roasted middle and a lightly wine-like finish with some chocolate and plums. Rather nice.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle: Pours an opaque black with a pillowy clingy-lacing creamy froth of light tan head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel malty nose with a touch of dark chocolate and light tart fruits. Starts with a light malty sweetness and some light toffee notes with doughy yeasty flavors and light fruity esters before a drier, lightly roasted finish. An enjoyable and balanced dry stout.

Bottle courtesy of Jay at Beer Run and shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Pours a hazy copper color with a large frothy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, tart and dusty notes and cherries. The taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a chalky finish. Medium bodied, very high carbonation. Nice beer.

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.
