look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours black. There's a little brown at the edges. Heavy light brown head, a blanket of fine bubbles. The liquid appears thick and leaves a slick coating on the glass with each swirl. It doesn't quite have legs, but we're in the ballpark. No lacing, but it's not exactly expected. The aroma is dark chocolate and caramel wrapped around fancy, fruity coffee beans. It smells luxurious. I want to eat it in fudge form. There's a light vinous note, along with some blackberries, but this is a chocolate bomb with well integrated caramel and coffee. The taste is sweet without a hint of cloy. Tons of dark chocolate, perfectly integrated coffee. The coffee is fairly strong but never takes over or gets in the way of other flavors. Big molasses, blackberry, lighter chocolate, mocha. Very well hidden alcohol. Smooth, thick, rich feel. Velvety chocolate cake. Very well made beer. I continue to be impressed by Evil Twin's work in stouts. Fun to try something brewed in Spain.

Tasting 9/9/14

This big stout shows off the big, thick, robust body that stout lovers look for. It's heavy and black, pouring completely viscous and absolutely opaque. The head, a medium-brown colored crown, sits proudly at two fingers, thick and immovable. It leaves on the glass an equally proud display of heavy lacing.
This beer displays all kinds of complexity, strength and balance in good measure. There's a show of roast, to be sure: the malts lay it down, the coffee is evident and seems fresh, there's a bit of char and some toasted nut to add to it all. What it does extremely well, though, is to cut out any acridity, any acidity that roasting tends to bring out, or any harshness in the char. Then it brings out a very creamy sweetness, lots of vanilla and an almost whipped cream note with, perhaps, a touch of molasses on the end. There's a little heat with very little ethanolic booziness. Really, there's just so much coffee, sweetness and roast balancing each other so nicely; this is a really excellent brew.
The thick and viscous body is as expected, with the robustness likewise expected. It flows on the tongue, pretty heavy in the middle but very smooth and with lots of complexity lingering in the finish.
