Opaque black colour, enormous off white head. Medium lace, good ring. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and I think I semall something like strawberries. Medium body, a bit watery. Taste of chocolate, coffee, fruits, some citrus.

This beer rates a solid - meh. When you first pour it you think you are in for something good. Dark and a nice head greet you in the glass. The smell is sweet and then you take a sip....
I got none of the sourness that others mentioned. Its just dry, hardly any flavor whatsoever. Really disapointing. It really doesn't have any flavor.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours an extremely dark black-brown with just a hint of light coming through at the edges with backlighting. 1 inch dark mocha head with decent retention. Very nice for style. (4.25)
S: Dark bitter chocolate, burnt toffee, dark caramel roasted malt, brown sugar, smoked--and nearly charred--wood, and a hint of vanilla with warming. Such a big nose for a relative small (ABV) beer! (4.5)
T: Bittersweet chocolate, medium roast coffee, dark roasted/charred malt, dry cocoa, and a hint of nuttiness and vanilla. Not quite up to the high bar set by the aroma, but still very nice. (4)
M: Bitter, dark, sweet, and mildly creamy. With warming, it becomes more dark and creamy and less bitter. Dry throughout. Light body. (3.75)
D: A nicely crafted brew...very good example of style. With warming, this one really opens up! (4)

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a very nice dark brown with a good thick, creamy mocha head that left nice lacing.

S - Aroma is very nice, sweet milk chocolates, light roasted coffee notes.

T - Weird sourness to start with, almost tastes infected. Light roast..yeah..definitely tastes infected...

M - Mouthfeel is light and thin. Ugh.

O - Overall yeah, disappointed by this beer. The aroma and appearance were so nice, and then the taste just ruins it.

330ml bottle. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on apr´12. Black color headed by creamy, light beige, medium to small bubbled, froth. Thick crown, good retention. Roasted malt, coffee grain aromas, slightly woody touch& earthy hues. Dry bitter, a bit acidic, at first sip balanced by sweet roasted malts. Subtle fruity hints in the middle. Full to medium body, moderate carbonation. Montseny mountain water close it to Style.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Very dark brown body with a thick, tan head.

Rich, dark, sweet chocolate dominates the smell, closely followed with roasted grain and dark roast coffee.

Very strange taste, nothing like the smell. A strong sourness hits you right off. Very little roasted graininess or chocolate notes. Bitterness is pretty well-hidden behind the sour taste.

Mouthfeel is light with little body. Finishes fairly cleanly.

A very disappointing beer. If the taste could get any where near what the aroma hints at, then this would be a respectable brew. As such, this is a weak example of a stout and not recommended.
