Almost black cola colored beer with a bit beige long lasting medium head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, smoke, roasted malts, some fruitiness, almost vinous tones, cherries. Nice! Taste falls a bit behind, roasted malts, caramel sweetness, bread, a slight hint of ashtray. Mouthfeel medium and co2 a bit high. Finishes with some bitterness, smooth. Quite good... actually really good. More for me please.

35cl bottle at Beach Club, Oslo. Pours clear, close to black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with notes of chocolate, malt, dark fruits and hints of herbs and caramel. Medium sweet with nice roasty aromas and a pleasantly bitter finish. Nice one!

Negra, con bonita espuma morena, consistente y duradera. Grano tostado en el aroma, con algo de chocolate. Mucho cuerpo, y excelente combinación de chocolate, caramelo y malta tostada en boca. Bien lupulada y con final seco (en conjunto más seca que dulce). Notable.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 A good stout that looks like a stout and tastes like a stout thanks to caramel malt. Usual patriotic rating here, but a very good ale.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black if not held up to the light. Good head and good head retention. I think the aroma is what let’s it down a bit. The hop aroma is quite minimal and I was expecting a bit more. I really like the taste. The bitterness is really well balanced and there is a rich malty flavour. Coffee notes come through strongly. Big mouthfeel. Overall I really like it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours with a very large dark tan head, the beer is a clear dark brown color that looks black unless it’s held up to the light, some really nice ruby tones in there as well, good head retention
Taste: coffee, medium sweetness from the malt comes thru as chocolate and coffee, not especially bitter on the finish but the hops are definitely there
Palate: heavy mouthfeel, frothy, fluffy, soft carbonation, coffee sweet and bitter aftertaste
Overall: a good stout that leans more towards the coffee flavor, not very sweet or bitter, well balanced, could use more aroma, alcohol hidden very well, not a big beer as far as above goes, stands out with it’s mouthfeel which is very fluffy

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep, dark brown edges with a black center. Light-tan head on top that leaves surprisingly good lacing all the way down. Nose is sweet, creamy, milky chocolate with undertones of roasted malt, burnt grains, & licorice. Roasted flavor leaves a mild bitterness up front with a counterpoint from the sweet chocolate malt sugars. Cocoa, mild ash, licorice, a small touch of earthy hops in the finish. Maybe even a touch of coffee. Creamy body, but slightly thin. Overall, a nice stout.
