33 cl bottle bought at Carrefour, Gandía, Spain. Bumped into this and noticed it was by a fairly new brewery, with other reviews dating back about as far as March/April 2012. The bottle promises "typically Spanish flavors such as coffee and dark chocolate". I didn't know those were intrinsically Spanish, but hey, we'll take it!
A: Thin ruby red, doesn't scream stout at all. Even Guinness, the dubious king of all thin and watery stouts, is pitch black compared to this.
S: Enticing coffee and dark chocolate notes. Some sweet pale malts and a little hop just on the front end.
T: Pretty much like it smells, only with a slight mineral salty quality. I wonder if this is due to force carbonation, as the bubbles don't seem all that natural. Fairly sweet and very sticky (mostly residual sugars?).
M: Thin and watery, not great due to the stingy carbonation.
O: Average. A good stout that packs a lot more flavor than the other ones that seem to dominated the Spanish market (i.e. Guinness), but the stingy carbonation, weak look and thin mouthfeel keeps it well out of the big leagues.
