3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy jet black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that slowly receded, down to a medium film with a large collar and had good streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt and a leathery yeast with notes of molasses, baker’s chocolate and dark roasted coffee.
The taste was very similar to the aroma starting off a bitter malty with a slight molasses sweetness and a strong bitter chocolate note, and finishing with a large dose of roasted coffee and a smooth bitter ending. The flavor lasted a decently long time following the swallow with a bitter coffee taste that was left to linger.
Mouthfeel was a few shade above medium in body with a thin oily texture and a carbonation that was just past mild.
Overall this brew was a prime example of a bitter Dry Stout, possessing a decent body and taste along with a nice easy drinkability...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botella. Negra opaca. Muchísima espuma. Aroma a regaliz y caucho quemado. Muy curioso. En boca es estupenda. Mucho equilibrio de dulce y amargo. Café, caramelo, cereal tostado... y muy presente el regaliz pero muy bien conjuntado y muy muy refrescante. Pide y pide y pide más. Gran cerveza
