Poured into a La Cumbre pint glass.

Funny that I've had this beer so many times and never reviewed it. I'm overdue.

Pouring Malpais from the can, I can't help but notice the engine oil appearance, and thick viscosity. This looks like a meal in a can. The liquid is pitch black and a dark khaki-colored head forms a finger-thick over it. It dissipates into a sticky lace.

Lots of dark, dry, roasted malts hit my nose. Some smokiness is there that reminds me of a campfire. There's a tiny bit of vanilla poking through too.

I'm still at the campfire with my first sip. Smoky, roasted dark malts tell me I should be in the mountains. Baker's chocolate lingers at the finish with the sweet vanilla doing away with some of the bitter, dryness. I get a slight hint of hops up front too, giving a bit of a bite. This is definitely a nice touch.

Call me crazy, but I'm loving this beer more from the can, same as how I feel about Elevated sometimes. It's creamy, thick yet smooth, and offers a touch of hips for bitterness, as well as some of that dry stout feel, yet is still sweet enough to almost to please. It's damn good.

I am headed down south to Ruidoso next week and will be picking up a 4-pack of this for the camping trip. Well done, La Cumbre.
