Well, possible this is unfair because I am rating it after having a DFH Raison D’etre, but I have had it on other occasions. Why do they put this in clear bottles? The mouthfeel is very weak. I can detect a slight coffe like flavor, but thats about it. Nothing spectacular here, I say, and certainly not worthy of almost a 4. Perhaps it is due to the pasteurization and filtering which the commercial description tells us about. I have to admit, it is a nice looking beer, and the head i got to form on it looked rather nice.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella. Color negro opaco.
No demasiada espuma pero mantiene una fina capa.
Magnífico aroma: frutos rojos, mermelada, chocolate blanco, vainilla...
En boca resulta bastante seca con notas a frutos rojos.
Mucho cuerpo y deja un amargor notable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with beige foam. The smell has a lot of licorice and is a bit boozy in the nose. The taste is a little boozy as well. Sweet with surprisingly little coffee with a little more chocolate. Not too strong in alcohol content. Nice beer.

Nice black color with inch thick tan head and red highlight. Aroma is roasted malt, a bit sweet prunes. Taste is dry, roasty, a bit fruity. Silky mouthfeel. Overall quite nice, not too heavy, but the malts are extreme. Well-priced.

Negra opaca. Escasa espuma ocre. Fuerte aroma a madera, café y ligeramente a hierbabuena. Mucho cuerpo y textura cremosa, con carbonatacion media. Muy sabrosa, mezclando tabaco, caramelo, café.. Final entre dulce y amargo. Excelente.

Pours nice and black with dense tan head. The mouth feel is awesome, creamy and viscous. But the flavour is overpowered by the malt. Just too much to let and other flavours come through.
