Scipio (1042) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2013Grumbo (2827) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2017
Pours black with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma is stronger and very enticing, with dark chocolate, mint, coffee, raisin, and licorice. Taste is plenty of chocolate and even more coffee, along with hints of licorice. Aftertaste is the same but with more chocolate and lasts a long time. This one has a very syrupy texture. Medium in body with some subtle carbonation. Some bitterness as well. I thought this was very good.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de cuatro dedos de grosor (buena retención y apariencia grumosa). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Increíble y complejísimo aroma. Notas de malta tostada, cacao, calabaza, canela, cardamomo, ligeros ahumados, especias por un tubo. Super especiada, pero a la vez licorosa y tostadota. Sabor fortón, más dulce que otra cosa, con mucho cacao y maltas tostadas, con la canela y el cardamomo muy presentes (sobre todo al final, de toque picoso y licoroso. Postgusto especiado (mucha canela de nuevo). Una delicia de mucha complejidad. MarcoDL (4808) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2017
