COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bob Maltman, SAGRA Beer brewer and Pepe Rodríguez, head chef of Restaurant El Bohio de Illescas - Toledo (Current National Prize of Gastronomy and Michelin star), have joined to create the first Spanish craft beer designed to accompany the dessert. The idea was born under the obsession of both fresh produce and develop a tract to be the perfect companion to pair with a dessert. To this end, has developed a triple malt beer with extra stores and conditioned in the bottle. The result is an ale-type beer, triple malt, balanced, color and aroma of chocolate, with hints of caramel and apple. Ideal to accompany any dessert or served as an appetizer.

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Deep dark brown coloured body with a rich, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, pecans, walnuts and a bit more earth - pungent. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong caramel and pit fruit flavours at first give way to a lot of malt, coffee and chocolate flavours. Aftertaste shows a refined sweetness from the caramelised sugars and a nice chocolate (light, ~40% cacao) and spicey finish. Overall, a nice rich beer that was better than I expected. Definitely not a barley wine, but strong of course, and deep roasty malts make for a nice beer. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased earlier in the day at Murray’s Cheese in New York, New York on 20-June-2015 for US$5,99 sampled in my hotel room later in the day on 20-June-2015 on the LES of New York.

jamaty (1241) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2015
Triple malta, de color y aroma a chocolate. Creada conjuntamente con el chef del restauante el Bohío, en Illescas. Flojea en cuerpo, algo aguada. Sabor y aroma marcado a chocolate. Le falta textura y complejidad. Bastante seca

On tap at Torst. Color is black small head. Aroma is caramel, sweetness, malts, very mild hops. Flavor is lots of caramel, honey, toffee. Very malt forward. Almost no hop character. Light carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. Overall a solid beer but I like more hop heavy Barleywines.

Hermod (4356) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2014
33cl bottle from teddybeer, cheers! Euroswap no 6. BBE OCT 18, label says 10,4%. Very dark brown in color, thin thin light brown head. Licorice, aniseed, spicy aroma, roasty as well. Flavor has licorice, syrup, roastedness, chocolate notes. Long sweet licoricy finish. Feels surprisingly light for 10%. Not too sweet IMO, although my better half thought it was quite sticky. I liked the licorice notes here. Not a bad brew in any way. High drinkability.
