Poured very dark black with very little head on top. The smell of the beer has massive roasted aromas coming off of it. The coffee and barrel notes along with the dark malts meld together and create a very powerful punch to start things off with this beer. The taste is about as powerful as the nose lead me to believe, this beer is a sipper. Really give this one the time to sink in if you can and be sure to let it warm up a little too. The feel is oily and thick. Overall it's an impressive beer from a place I wasn't actually familiar with not too long ago.

The beer pours Pitch Black with a thin khaki head that recedes quickly. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of Dutch chocolate, coffee, vanilla, pecans, hazelnuts, and bourbon. It tastes of chocolate, mild coffee, vanilla, pecans, hazelnuts, and bourbon. The feel is medium light and smooth. A good BA stout from Casita.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Green Session. Black color. Aroma is a bit spicy and woody with dark malts. Taste is sweet and malty with bitter roasty finish. Really well balanced and easy drinking.

500ml bottle, no date seen but assumed late 2017/early 2018 release. Poured into tulip.
Pours deep, dark brown, root beer highlights with rich brown 1 finger of head. Recedes somewhat quickly. Belgian chocolate brownie batter, rich and roasty coffee, smooth bourbon nose. Can’t wait to get into this one. Holy crap this is delicious. Everything on the nose is but blended seamlessly together. Flavors transition from one to the other and meld together at the same time. This beer has the mouthfeel I look for in imperial stouts-thick, velvety smooth and light to no bubbles on the mouthfeel. No alcohol burn, smooth for 11%.
