look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours with a deep, khaki colored head, frothy and soapy, and a mahogany, not quite black body.
S: Apple is immediately apparent (slightly tart and juicy, think granny smith), as is roastiness, and a certain sharpness.
T: Apple is definitely here, and with it an astringency that is not altogether pleasant. The apple comes off a as a granny smith at first but feels more like a red apple as it marries with the roastiness and what little chocolate can crawl out from under the astringency, there is a subtle, but deep grape presence here as well.
M: Thick and viscous, but decently enough carbonated.
O: Probably my least favorite of the Gordo Variants, but still excellent nonetheless. If you've never had El Gordo before, I wouldn't make this your first glass if given the choice. This is still an excellent beer, but I think it will kill with about six months more age on it.
