COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Esta es una fuerte cerveza negra de alta fermentación que con su alto contenido de maltas tostadas tiene un paladar a chocolate y café muy reconocible y un aroma a caramelo, pasas y frutas secas. Abundantes cantidades de lúpulo Británico confieren a la cerveza un elegante contrapeso al fuerte carácter acaramelado y afrutado de esta cerveza. Como un toque personal le hemos añadido chiles selectos que por su característico sabor y fuerza le dan a esta cerveza aún más intensidad. Esta cerveza fué creada especialmente para acompañar platillos con mole, un manjar digno de la corte de cualquier imperio en el pasado, presente o futuro.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with virtually no head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, lactose, dark berries, and coffee notes. Didn’t detect any chili pepper heat. Okay.

Aroma: very roasty and a little boozy; good; Appearance: pitch black with thin off white head that disappears almost immediately; Taste: follows nose with a little additional bitterness; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: not bad. Not the first stout I’d choose, but decent.

Dark amber pour, no head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, cherries, alcohol. Bittersweet. Middle is fudge brownies (that’s what I taste!) with some cinnamon. Finish is earthy malt with a nice hop bite. Stay with this one, it is delicious.

Near black with a thin khaki head that faded quickly. Strong berry, licorice, dark chocolate aroma. Taste was strong bitter dark chocolate, bitter black coffee, sweet dark fruits, and licorice. Tannic dry finish with an oily texture.
