In short: An earthy fruity-nutty messy dark ale of some kind. Very dirty. Bad.Taboada (1459) - Compostela (Galiza), SPAIN - JUL 24, 2013
How: Bottle 500ml. consumed fresh a few days after purchase from a Spanish beer store, almost two years before expiration date.
The look: Many particles in a muddy dark brown body topped by a quickly dissipating tan head.
In long: Nose is sweaty resinous hops, walnuts, lots dark fruits esters, a spiciness reminiscent of star anise. Body is time and chewy with a carbonation that is a bit too relaxed. Taste is.... strange. Very fruity (raisins, dark berries, vinous notes), similar fruity flavors than I get from belgian dark ales, except here the yeast fells chalky and dirty. Burnt walnuts, awkward fruity sourness, very strong earthy sensation. No very bitter for a beer that advertises 135 ibu. Just a big mess from start to finish. I wonder how many more millions of years of evolution it will take for human beings to stop making beers like this.
Tasted on Tap. Very nice dark colour with cofee taste. Very light carbonation and head. I like the bitter finish. Nice one. Puxa asturies.
