Lovely chocolate aroma. Lots of sweet malt, moe of a milk stout than a dry one. The alcohol creeps in after a while. GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 20, 2012

7- Pleasant Smooth coffee-ish aroma. Classic rich stout, nice.
4 Jet black, small beige ring head.
7 Big sweet roasty stout, some esters and a couple of strange spikes early on. Alcohol is coverred well, but is still comes over as a pretty serious brew. Bucket loads of zingy hops there too, which is nice.
4 Smooth and a little sweet, not much carbonation, but a little bite from the hops and alcohol too. Finish has some clovey anaesthetic feel.
14 Potent, but not overpowering. No flaws except for it being a little too sugary.

Dark brown colour with tiny head.
Quite mild aroma of roasted malt, liquorice and some mild medicine notes.
Roasted malt, dry hops, grain and some mild cough medicine notes in flavour.
(Bottle, 0.33 l - LOT 1160 - No Ampolla 0865, at One Pint Pub, 20111111) The beer poured almost black. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had roasted malts, liquorice and ash. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, liquorice, saltiness, hops, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, ashy and bitter. I liked this beer. It was quite balanced, had no serious flaws and tasted ok.
