Aroma decente, con notas florales y de maltas. Grandiosa apariencia café profundo casi negro con una espuma magnífica también color caramelo y una huella q no dura po q debería. Un sabor complejo, robusto, con mucho carácter, con notas de hierbas, lupulos y maltas tostadas a base centeno, el q deja un paladar largo, ahumado y algo picante. Iria perfecta con un habano. Asi me imagino q sabría una cerveza cerca de El Muro...

Beautiful aroma, great color and 2" tanish head. Loved the appearance of this beer. I was getting a very sharp, acrid taste-almost like a bitter black licorice. That taste just wasn’t for me.

Bottle. Black with a big off white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Taste has lots of oat and adds hints of licorice and chocolate that are not very pronounced. Slight hop bitterness. Palate is crisp but still coats the mouth. Not bad but this doesn't really strike me as a stout.

Draft snifter. Black as brown gets. Lights not passing through this dark brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was sort of gross. Just dirty tasting. Aroma and appearance was as expected for a stout, but the spices they used did not appeal to my palate. I couldn’t get into this but its probably a personal taste thing.
