On tap from the brewery in San Marcos. Awesome aroma of bourbon. Definite liquor taste. Tasty, although highly alcoholic. Slight coffee flavoring.

eljebi (56) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2016
Negra, intensa y poderosa. Notas a chocolate negro, café, frutas maduras y vainilla, casi notando madera y cuero. Receta muy sólida, con un final amargo y levemente lupulado y carácter vinoso.

pivnizub (9895) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle: Literally black, as exprcted, nearly mid-sized loose ’n lacy tanned head; moderate to solid - not too dry - bitter-sweet nose of dried fruits, leather and tobacco; solid bitter-sweet flavour, full bodied and pretty smooth; slightly increasing bitterness towards the chocolatey and coffeeish finish. Well crafted, well rounded session Reichsstout…
