Bob Maltman, SAGRA Beer brewer and Pepe Rodríguez, head chef of Restaurant El Bohio de Illescas - Toledo (Current National Prize of Gastronomy and Michelin star), have joined to create the first Spanish craft beer designed to accompany the dessert. The idea was born under the obsession of both fresh produce and develop a tract to be the perfect companion to pair with a dessert. To this end, has developed a triple malt beer with extra stores and conditioned in the bottle. The result is an ale-type beer, triple malt, balanced, color and aroma of chocolate, with hints of caramel and apple. Ideal to accompany any dessert or served as an appetizer.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 Это пиво имеет вкус не самого лучшего вина. Хотя при десяти с половиной градусов алкоголь не особо сильно чувствуется. Как по мне лучше просто выпить хорошего красного сухого вина.

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly deminishing head. Dark amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy and moderate yeasty aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Alcohol well hidden.

Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2017
Triple malta, de color y aroma a chocolate. Creada conjuntamente con el chef del restauante el Bohío, en Illescas. Flojea en cuerpo, algo aguada. Sabor y aroma marcado a chocolate. Le falta textura y complejidad. Bastante seca. Me decepciona como Barley Wine.

Dark brown, decent beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, brandy. Tastes sweet, toffee, caramel, liquor notes. Body is full, smooth carbonation, leaves some alcoholic warmth. Very good and intense.

Moebbels (817) - FINLAND - MAR 3, 2017
A hazy brown beer with some rafts of foam floating around. Somewhat boozy nose with notes of calvados, raisins, figs and herbs/menthol (Fernet Branca). Taste is quite sweet with oxidized sherry flavors and a sweet, lingering finish. Soft carbonation and hefty, syrupy palate. Decent beer but it is maybe a bit overly sweet and rich, a half bottle will be perfectly enough.

DrNosha (2719) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2017
0,33l Flasche. Dunkelbraunes trübes Bier, hellbeiger feiner aber flüchtiger Schaum. Es duftet nach Gewürzen. Zimt, Sternanis, getrocknete Pflaumen , süsser Sherry und Dchokolade. Weicher Antrunk. Etwas Lebkuchen und Trockenobst. Lecker.

The beer looks delicious, it had everything I like in a beer. The color of the beer is a beautiful dark brown, and the beer is very cloudy, giving almost a creamy look. The beer looks a bit like coffee. On of the beer there is a nice layer of soft, creamy almond colored foam. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a beautiful silky drape remains. The smell of the beer is lovely. I didn’t knew what to expect from the beer in the first place, but this exceeds all expectations. Here is a very very strong malt aroma, stronger than I’ve ever experienced. It’s well balanced, containing delicious toasty aromas of roasted barley, sweeter normal malt aromas and even a nice savory touch, also if the roasted malts. Some nice refreshing hops are also present. I like the beer. Aromas contain chocolate, coffee and some caramel. As the beer warms up, more and more aromas fill the glass. Perfect. The taste is also brilliant. It’s more like a barley wine here. The bitter and slightly savory strong roast aroma is not as strong as in the smell. There are more nice sweet malt aromas, giving a rich, almost syrupy sweetness to the beer. In the background there still is a nice savory and bitter malt touch. Yes in lovely balance. It just is a tiny bit to watery. Where the smell is very strong, the taste is a tiny bit weak, especially compared to the smells. The palate truly fits the beer. The beer is really smooth and has a somehow creamy texture. Carbonation is medium light, but that fits the creamy texture. The finish is quite long and nice, containing sweeter malts at first and more bitter malts in the end. Lovely beer.
