Lovely dark, roast chocolatey aroma with hint of coffee, deep and dark. I am detecting a woodiness as well. Looking great - jet black with a pretty dark brown head. Wow! Flavour so chocolate, thick, vanilla, coats the tongue with oily silk indulgence. Heavily burnt flavours at the end which in a long drawn out way balance the initial sweetness. The Cypress wood isn’t something I know, but it is lending a great aspect to this brew. Great experience, Very impressed!

A highly suitable name! Pours a thick dark liquified cake, with hints of vanilla and chocolate in the aroma.Delicious taste, a beer to enjoy slowly.

Grifo. Copa de Cata en el Freiburg (Barcelona). Brota con color negro cubierto por cremosa espuma. La corona es bronceada, persistente y de sólida capa que deja amplios anillos en las paredes. Aromas de chocolate con leche, galleta, frutos del bosque, herbáceos y de moka, redondeados por trazos de moscatel. Entrada muy suave y sabrosa -como era de esperar por los aromas. Cuerpo intenso y carbonatación baja. Paladar untoso y aterciopelado. El ascendente alcohol despliega notas de anís y hierbas,matices de pasa moscatel y madera. La lupulización agradable, la justa para equilibrar el dulzor, queda reforzada por amargor de cacao negro y permanece en el final dulce. Leves notas de mermelada de ciruela en el retrogusto. On-tap. Tasting glass @ Freiburg (Barcelona). Pours black in color headed by creamy foam. Tan crown is lasting & thick layered. Wide rings are left on sides. Milky chocolate, biscuit, dark fruit, herbal & subtle mocha aromas rounded by hints of muscatel. Very smooth & flavorful upfront –as expected from aromas. Full body. Soft carbonation. Velvety & unctuous palate. Increasing alcohol hues display notes of anise & herbs, hints of muscatel raisin & wood. Gentle hoppy -just to balanced- sweetness are reinforced by dark cocoa bitterness & linger into a sweet finish. Slight prune on the aftertaste.

Wow. Lashings of chocolate and caramel in the malt. Reminds me of a liquor laden ginger cake. Very creative.

Thick and creamy with almost no head. Loads of chocolate and roasted notes both in aroma and taste. Wonderfully creamy mouthfeel. This is good!

Aroma is roasted, malty and spicy. The taste takes you on a ride with milk chocolate, vanilla, malts and burned coconuts. A little salty. Light and dry in the finish. This stout takes you on a boat trip through the archipelago of the Caribia, making stops on all the small islands where you try out the local flavors from cocoa, salt water and inhaling burned Cypress wood and vanilla. Very pleasant.
