A fine fullsome stout, full in every way, a pungent aroma of late kettle hops. A generous quantity of roast grain for flavour, bitter with flaked barley producing that rich body."
Ingredients: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Goldings hops.

Aroma is one of beers most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

Lo primero que llama la atencin de esta cerveza es su chapa, que se abre con una anilla, como si fuera una granada. Color marrn profundo, prcticamente opaco. Fantstica formacin de espuma de caf, muy cremosa y de burbuja pequea (muy pequea). Muy persistente y con muy buena adherencia, dejando un espectacular encaje de Bruselas. Intensa en nariz, da inmediatamente notas de chocolate y caf. Entre las notas afrutadas, da algo de pasas muy suave. Tambin algunas notas de tierra seca. No aprecio notas florales, herbales ni especiadas (aunque la verdad es que tengo la nariz un poquito taponada). El primer sabor que viene es el amargo, siempre de la mano de un punto de acidez. Hay tambin desde luego una nota de dulce, pero es francamente suave. Peso medio en boca y textura crujiente y algo picante, debido al amargor del torrefacto. En el retrogusto sale caramelo de caf y algunas notas ligeramente acres, pero sobre todo, pan muy tostado. Persistencia en boca muy larga, liderada siempre por el amargor proveniente de la malta torrefacta. Una cerveza intensa de sabor y con carcter, aunque dando un resultado muy satisfactorio. De trago medio, maridar bien con chocolate y con casi cualquier cosa que vaya bien con pan tostado.

Draft Pint at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London in Feb 2011 - Very dry and nicely bitter stout. Very Dark Brown/Black in colour. Very Malty; burnt/roast malts, lots of bitter espresso coffee, some bitter chocolate, hint of liquorice. Hoppy; earthy hop bitterness. Rather dusty and ashy. Bittersweet with emphasis on the bitter. Very very dry throughout. Very burnt/roast taste. Good Stuff!! Terrific Stout! (2011-02-16)

Dry stout, too bitter in my opinion. But a nice creamy mouthfeel with the nitrogen carbonation. All around slightly above average dry stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In Teku glass. Watching Comando Actualidad: El Imperio de la Cerveza This is a good dry stout and not guiness. Good body, dry finish and a pleasant coffelike roastyness that isnt overwhelming. Very creamy head although a bit big, which requires serving in 2 steps

Grzesiek79 (4165) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Super dobry i wytrawny stout w starym stylu. Mimo wytrawnosci i szerokiej gamy chmielowej goryczy czuc palony slod ciemne owoce lesne. Likierowe piwo z chmielona glebia. Wyglad takze super, bezowa piana ladna srednio trwala i czarne ciemna jak bezgwiezdzista noc barwa. super do twardego sera dlugo dojrzewajacego
