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. ZacM612 (738) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2017
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 (4085) - 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 (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2017
My Bottom Line:Sbreitman (4) - 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.

Roasted malty aroma. Taste is a dry roasted malt with a slight coffee bitter finish. Does have some sweet malt to balance. Tons of body but still easy drinking. Nice stout. Imaena (2327) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - APR 20, 2017
Can. This is an exceptional stout that is so rich and thick that it is almost overwhelming. Delicious and well worth seeking out. VastActiv (7232) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Tap at La Cumbre Brewing Company. Colour is very dark brown with small brownish white head. Aromas and flavors: Chocolate, dark chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts. Nice little bit of creamy and soft. Sdaniel90 (1082) - Mexico City, MEXICO - NOV 27, 2016
Can, 1 pint. Opaque dark brown with a frothy to minimal light brown head. Dry aromas of roasted malts, lactose, light alcohol. Medium to full bodied, moderate to fizzy carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Strong roasted flavors into a harsh bitter finish.
