UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 La Cumbre is one if the best kept secrets escaping from New Mexico. This stout is smooth and simply incredible. Stout lovers will appreciate if you are fortunate to find on tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone CarlosTheTall (14) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 18, 2015
A rich, delicious stout. All the coffee and chocolate notes you could ever want. Not ridiculously heavy on the palate. A pretty dark, dark brown pour and frothy head. smaynard6000 (1167) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Made the mistake of trying this *after* the Acclimated IPA. Pint at the brewery. Pitch black with small creamy light brown head. Fair bit of lacing. Aroma is heavily caramel and chocolate roasted malt. Full bodied with creamy mouthfeel. This is intensely flavorful with coffee notes. Nice long finish. Nicely done. trenchmonkey (1) - Peralta, New Mexico, USA - JUL 7, 2012 does not count
My favorite La Cumbre offering, I’m good for 2+ growlers a week. Their
"Chew and Swallow Stout" is right up there too but we’ll have to wait ’til
Fall to revisit that one I’m afraid. If I can see thru a beer, I don’t want it. ;) maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 6, 2013
On tap at the brewery, the Malpais is everything you look for in an American Stout: rich caramel and chocolate sweetness on the nose and palate, framed by roasted notes, and a cleanly pleasant and subtle hop finish giving it an American touch on the European Export style. Excellent job!

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2015 Tout est très aiguisé dans ce riche nectar. Les sucres aussitôt mutilés par la torréfaction persistent quand même et donnent du corps. Longue amertume assombrie, harmonie puissante, buvabilité biblique. onceblind (9700) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2011
GABF 2011. Oily black with a frothy light tan head. Dense aroma of roasted dark chocolate, black malts, and a touch of coffee grounds. Flavor of the same. Big full body with a long linger. No bitterness or hop profile present. Really dessert-like sweet, low on the burnt malt tones, with a touch of toffee thrown in. Dang good.

Draft at tap room. Pours black with lots of khaki foam. Massive roasted malt on the nose. Very creamy and thick mouthfeell. Lots of licorice and malt and roast and some hoppiness on the tongue. Finish lingers a but which is awesome because this is a damn good stout. zoucrew102 (1880) - - JUL 17, 2016
Pint can. Roasted malt aroma with notes of bittersweet chocolate and a hint of coffee. Pours black with one finger of light brown head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavors and a bit of chocolate sweetness with a rich body and creamy mouthfeel. Finishes with bittersweet chocolate as well as a bit of roast coffee. Excellent stout! andrewje41 (3893) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2015
16 oz can poured. Huge thanks to Terminus for the can! So far so good from the beers I’ve had from these guys. Pours black with a swirling tan foam head. Thick, creamy dark chocolate body. Awesome roasted aroma to it. Toasty flavor with a bold chocolate, and light espresso flavor up front. Thick stuff, and very nicely done. Has the cream and vanilla flavor without the heavy sweetness. Better with every drink, or should I say, bite. Awesome beer here.
