2.33/5  rDev -29.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Black, with a brown creamy head. The smell is very light, essentially roast barley. At the first taste you can see just roasted and burnt, but a little after, you can see even a little taste of nut. The finish is quite bitter, witha sweet malty note. Not very impressive.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25

Pours black with a light tan head.
Sweet aroma of bready malt, brown sugar and chocolate fudge along with some faint vegetal notes.
More bready and toasty malt as flavours, also some brown sugar, soft coffee notes and a bit of roasted malt.
Carbonation is too high.
Half way between a schwarz and a bock.

This is a solidly black beer with a stable light-brown head. It's aroma is of dark malts, with a with some tinny and medicinal notes. However, there's also a notable caramel smell that translates nicely into the taste. The beer is modestly sweet, and nicely balanced with the roasted qualities. It's clean and straightforward, making it quite a nice lager. It tends to be a light-bodied brew, with a very smooth mouthfeel. The roasted quality follows into the finish. Not a bad beer at all.

Portugal

3.38/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: opaque due to the black colour. The head is deep brown and low. Poor head retention and no lancing whatsoever.
Aroma: interesting port, roasted and sweet malty aroma.
Taste: bitter in the right way, complex roasted taste with strong coffee notes.
Mouthfeel: smooth with a strong carbonation, low alcoholic strength and a medium body.
Finish: lingering bitter and coffee finish.

Overall: despite the lack of head retention, this beer is quite complex and intriguing. Very nice coffee presence. One of the best Spanish beers I’ve ever tasted.

My favorite of spanish beers; an special schwarzbier with intense brown color,a light palate, taste caramel, wide, sweet, firm; smell syrup, notes of malt and sugar cane; try with mexican food, seafood, and cheese, chinese is good for this beer too; serve in a pilsner glass; 93% recommended;

A nice surprise!
i am always doubtful about spanish beer, but spain can be proud of this one.
Nice smell really nice flavour, deep in the mouth, very sweet for a 12% bottle. Even the girls love it. (maybe i should not said that^^)
Very easy to drink. I recommend!
you can drink it with tapas and ham.
