Pours opaque black with 1-finger tan head, rather low retention. Smell - chocolate. Taste - licorice, coffee & chocolate. Very smooth & drinkable. Tasted it in pair with Hemel & Aarde, although they both are completely different but all are excellent.

Served in a flute at Cerveceria Esparte in Conil, Spain.

Appearance: Thick black like motor oil, one inch head is nice light tan color which is originally thick with a very hard pour. Settles after a sip and settles perfect with almost no lacing whatsoever.

Smell: Deep espresso. The coffee is so evident in the brew and placing the glass on the table very few brew the scent lingers as much.

Taste: Seriously dessert, sweet chocolate and molasses infused espresso. Complex obviously, you want more here it is.

Mouth: Smooth sweet coffee and milk finish. The after taste lingers with a smooth bitterness.

Overall: Seriously have to give a beer props when it's due, this brew hit the palates like a train through a mouse hole. If you think I'm kidding you should have it for yourself and just wonder what you've been missing. Salud!

Hazy brown in color. Got a little roast in the beginning, which was nice. But then that faded and what was left was sweet and unbalanced. Maybe a bad batch.
