Aroma - Strong coffee aroma! Aroma of wet oak, or wood grilling planks. Probably due to the whiskey barrel aging. You. Can smell this aroma from a close distance. Slight sweet vanilla and chocolate aroma. Hint of malt and booze. Taste - Taste of roasted coffee and chocolate as well as oak. Taste of sweet malt and booze. Overall- Great! Beer. I haver never had a stout like this.

11,9%. Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (cremosa y de buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura cremosa. Aroma a malta torrefacta, café puro frío, chocolate, vainilla, ligero toque de licor. En boca entra ligeramente dulce y torrefacta, con mucho café y chocolate, vainilla, y reminiscencias de whisky. Final ligeramente amargo, cafetoso y algo licoroso. Barrica sutil y cerveza sutil. No esperaba mucho cuando la abrí pero me pasó por encima. Casi termino la botella de 65 cl., sin verdadero esfuerzo.
