Faint aroma of roasted malts. Inky black in color with a quickly disappearing head. Toasty caramel flavor meshes nicely with deeply roasted malts. Very creamy, with lingering spruciness and slight char. This is very nice.

On tap at Old Schoolhouse, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out medium roasted malt upfront, with a touch of coffee. Flavour is medium bodied, with roasted malt upfront, a touch of coffee and dry cocoa. Lots of body for a non-imperial stout. Very nice stuff.

Barreras (1568) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours an almost black color with a sugary malt and coffee aroma. Taste is similar, with a roasted malt and sweet caramel flavor. An easy drinking minute oatmeal flavored beer for the style.

Sweet, bitter, molasses, chewy and full-bodied, and thereís a rich malty, complexity.

Pours a deep black with a creamy mocha head. Smaller than I would expect, but leaves decent lacing as it disappears down my gullet. The aroma hits as soon as you pop the lid: creamy sweet chocolate. Roasty and smoothe. Really inviting. Starts off with a smoothe incline of roast bordering-on-but-never-quite-reaching char. Hints towards acrid coffee, but with all the harsh acidity stripped, so you thereís no sharp bite to it, just the backing flavour. Moves into layers of sweet chocolate and molasses, but thereís an almost green bitter hint riding around the top edge. Finish is more of a burnt bitter than the one noted above, with a creamy sweet touch underneath. Really tasty stout. Nothing that hasnít been done, but done absolutely well. Grabbed it almost on a whim in honour of the pounding that region had taken in recent weeks (fires and floods, etc), and glad I did from a tasty-beer-standpoint as well.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate dark tan head on there. Nose is quite roasty, and has some nice oatmeal coming through on it. Taste is actually a little more bitter than I would have anticipated, but I can get some oats as well as a whole lot of roasting.

In short: A well made grainy roasted stout that is too sweet for me.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few months after purchase, bottle sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Black body topped by a persistent small tan head.
In long: Nose is roasted grains, a In mouth the beer is very full body, generous carbonation that lighten up the heavy body, a texture that is both creamy and harsh-grainy. A full heavy body with plenty of charred grainy malts. Too much sweetness for what I want from a 7% stout, and the sweetness navigate around soft black liquorice candy, molasses, vanilla extract and overcooked caramel. Light lactic notes here and there. Notes of sweet cocoa beans and very light notes of coffee beans. Some tobacco to round up the whole thing. Basically it has most of the elements one can expect from a beer like this, itís just that I donít have a sweet tooth and the sweetness sensation in this one was well above average for a 7% stout, feels as sweet as a +9% stout but without the richness of a big impy stout. Iím giving it a passing grade because it is well made, sweet stouts lovers will probably disagree with my strictly hedonistic rating. I can relate to this Hooligan name, I donít watch any sport and I donít cheer for any teams but Iím a natural hooligan, I naturally hate people who wear different colors of cloths than I do.
