75 cl corked bottle at Las Buenas Pulgas, served in a balloon glass. Black colour, small brown head and retention, creamy lacing. Aroma is earthy, chocolate, roasted malts, cherries. Full body, creamy texture, good carbonation, sweet finish. Round flavor. Taste of chocolate, coffee, cherries. Pretty good.

Bought from a specialty beer shop in Montreal for 12$. Dated "19-12-19" drank on August 15th, 2020 (age 8 mths) . lot.9109

Appearance: Poured into an 8-ounce glass beer mug at fridge temp. A black coffee-like liquid pours with thick creamy brown head that stays for a minute or two. Not much lacing.

Aroma: Cola/root beer, sweet, like those candy cola candies, chocolate.

Flavor: First hits like it smells - sweet and candy-like, but then a deeper dry roasted flavor breaks though. Chocolatey on the finish with a drier bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: One the heavier side, reminiscent of a desert beer.

Overall: A nice blend of sweetness and bitterness. The sweetness seems to be dominant, and it's quite heavy. It's a very strong beer at nearly 12%, though the boozy quality isn't too present. Starting to get a buzz from one 8-ounce glass. Not something you would tend to drink quickly. I'd recommend for those who like heavy beers and stouts.

Opinion: Though I'm a big fan of stouts, the sweetness was a bit overwhelming for me. I prefer mostly crisp and dry beers. Though the appearance and aroma were wonderful, the flavor and mouthfeel were a bit too sweet on the front. Due to the heavy sweetness, I didn't particularly enjoy it. Hard to review something objectively that your palate rejects, so take my review as it be.

As a whole, it's not terrible though. I just couldn't dig it.
