Spain

3.78/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

appearance: dark brown with some copper hues in the light, 1 finger slightly off white head

smell: roasted malts, coffee, bready notes, biscuity, a little boozy

taste: caramel sweetness, you can feel the warmth from the booze, there's not intention to hide it. lots of bready flavors and some toffee, espresso, and biscuity notes fuse with a roasted malt backbone to round it out. The lingering aftertaste has some dark fruits as well, and lots of roasted coffee. Lots of flavors in this one, very well balanced.

mouthfeel: medium carbonation, thick bodied

overall: A great take on the style, not the biggest fan, but this is on par with Old Chub as my favorite per se. Very well balanced yet with no intention of hiding the alcohol, lots of other flavors as well, great for the price.

3.9/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

served from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass

A: very dark golden brown when held to the light, Head two finger width but fades quickly.

S: licorice and caramel, strong alcohol smell typical of the style

T: sweet licorice and alcohol in a good way. A nice spicy hop but not bitter at all. Hint of clove.

M: Thick and heavy, coats the mouth in a sweet warming spice.

O: Very good variation of the style strong but doesn't turn the stomach. Great beer for the price. 6 pack instead of a 4 which is typical for this style.
