I liked this beer. There is a style of my favorites on the contrary. Find a style that you beers too strong, too dense, with few nuances. This beer is strong, dense but leaves room for nuances and evolution in the mouth and in the glass. Just do a beer without concessions

330 ml bottle, Habemus Birra, Alicante - Pours jet black with a medium tanned head which quickly dissipates. Nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Aroma - Roasted malts, lactose, dark chocolate, roasted coffee. Taste - Sweet, rich, lactose, smooth front, roasted malts, dark chocolate, light bitter finish with a hint of alcoholic warmth at the back end. This hit all the right notes for me. Lovely well balanced RIS and well worth finding.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry and bitter black chocolate notes with light coffee notes is more intense then expected. Taste is a mix of bitter chocolate notes with dry bitter notes with light coffee notes. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. Enjoyable but a lot dryer then most of the American counterpart.

On tap at The Stuyck Co. in Madrid. This is a tremendous Russian Imperial Stout that hits all the right notes.

Heady smell of coffee, roastiness and chocolate. The taste is even better; just imagine diving into a boozy chocolate cake, with a grassy-hoppy finish and vanilla overtones.

The mouthfeel is just about perfect for the style, thick and juicy and decadent. Pretty drinkable for an 11% brew.

If you told me this was made in the US by Stone or similar, I would be impressed. Kudos to Laugar for this stunning cerveza!

Poured from fridge temperature. Pours jet black with little head. Doesn't get much blacker than this! Aroma is roasted malts, black licorice, wood, dark fruit, and a bit of chocolate sweetness. Taste is incredible. Chocolate is dominant, with black licorice, bitterness, wood, vanilla, slight coffee, and a bit of toffee. Also getting a good amount of brown sugar, and a bit of soy sauce (not in a bad way). Mouthfeel is thick and creamy - very robust. Really nice, with lingering chocolate flavors. Overall, an incredible RIS.
