On tap at Magister, several times before they ran out of bussines (it´s been "closed for vacations" for many months...).
Caramel and sicy aromas. Pours dark copper,with thin white head, non persistent, some lacework. Medium body and average carbonation. Malty, caramel and toast flavours. Short aftertaste, sweet. Tasty, but maybe a bit watered down.
Draught. Unclear light amber colour. Strange mild sweet sourish malty caramel aroma. Good mouthfeel. Sweet frutish toffee and malty flavour with a soft bitterness and some alcohol. Sweet malty caramel finish. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007

Comments: A very sweet, rather fruity, toasty, nutty bock that is not afraid of alcohol.
On tap at Magister. Poured a medium coppery amber with a short creamy white head. Aroma was quite nice with deep, lightly-smoked fruits (odd note of banana Pixy Stix comes to mind, and I don’t think that was even a flavor... but it was strangely arousing).. very sweet with zero alcohol apparent. The flavor was really, really sweet.. light and dark fruity sugars with some caramel.. lightly-toasted with a warm, sweet finish.. mild bitterness. The sweetness did manage to mask the booze well.. bit of a syrupy feel on the palate. I could drink it again, but probably wouldn’t. PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - NOV 25, 2006
On tap, sign on the wall says it’s the strongest beer brewed in Spain. Grapefruit aroma, burnt copper color with an off-white head. Roasted coffee and malty flavors. The aftertaste was definitely grapefruity. It was a good beer, but I wonder if it was aged enough.

Also called Autor, but I was told they did not have it, and got it almost when I was leaving. Interesting flavor, too alcoholic. caesar (7162) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2005
Draught at the brewpub, 9 %. Clear copper color, short head. Aroma of caramel malt, candy, sweetness. Hint of alcohol, but in a pleasant way. Sweet taste, candy, malty. A lot of taste for a Spanish brew. Definitely one of the best brews in Spain. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005
Draught at the brewpubbitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Beautiful amber color; nice head. Very simple aroma. Quite good body, malty, oily, warm; caramel. Quite strong bitter and caramel final. Reminds me an Eku 28, but not so good nor complex…
on draft at magister madrid, spain: this one was the darkest of the lot with no carbonation and sick sweet meloncholy nose... unfermented malt molasses and alcohol. probably havent sold one of these (except to me) in the last week...steer clear.
yo. the potato bravas are money though. skip the beer and eat just the potatoes though...way too many tapas places to waste the palate just here.
