500mL can, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out moderate roast, with a touch of cocoa and oats. Flavour is hearty, with moderate roast, oats and light cocoa. Light sweetness, with a nice heart finish. Excellent.

Can from BelgianBeerGal. Black with an off-white head. Dark roast coffee aroma. A little sweetness up front, with a strong, slightly bitter coffee finish. BelgianBeerGal (4158) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2017
Tallboy can from the brewery enjoyed at Purgatory. I was actually proud I could tell this was a foreign stout without checking! Tasty malt, a hint a sweetness, and light bitterness. Pretty nice. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2017
My Bottom Line:Sbreitman (5) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2017 does not count
Foresty, minty undercurrents scent this superbly malted Stout, offering roasted lengths and caramelized soy complexities onto grape jam and plenty of Maillard notes.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the darkness.
-This one’s just begging for grilled meats! Pork flank? Alrighty then!
-Body is well put together.
-Crystallized brown sugar notes are well positioned.
Can. Merci, Hughes!
Nice dark color. Aroma of coffee. Smooth mouth feel gives way to a little hop bitterness.

Obtained on a trip to eastern New Mexico in a fortunate circumstance. The 16 oz can delivers a lights-out black liquid and hardly any head. Stouts do that sometimes in my experience. The nose is subtle, cocoa and something herbal. The first drink is fine, a malty dark chocolate, roasted pecans and a touch of caramel. Not imperial stout big taste. Something much more subdued. A slick and fullish mouth feel and an extended medium-bitter finish. Entertaining without being superb. Malpais Stout continues the La Cumbre tradition of great graphics on the can.
