Can: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate notes with some dry raisin and rum notes is quite nice. Taste is also a good balanced mix between some dry raisin notes with some rum and black chocolate with finat residual sugar notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation with some light warming alcohol notes. I love the mix of dry raisin and rum in this stout.

De Labirratorium. En copa Teku. Jugando a Fortnite. Perfil a pasas, regaliz y algo de metal. Al principio no parece gran cosa, pero poco a poco te va cautivando y al final hasta se la echa de menos

Pours a deep black color with a medium top off dark-beige head that dissolves slowly.
Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate ,licorice, raisins and vanilla. The taste is heavy malty and roasted ballanced with a nice sweetness. I sense dark chocolate, coffee, raisins and vanilla om the flavour. The finish has some bitterness and it leaves a long and strong aftertaste. Creamy and sticky mouthfeel with a medium carbonation and a full body. A sipper that gets even better when it warms up.
A superb imperial stout.

Dark brown, oily body, reduced head.
Smells of cherries, dark chocolate, caramel.
Thick and carbonated, bit spicy. A lot of chocolate and caramel, expresso.
Dried plums, some vanilla well hidden. Sweet overall.
Due to the dense body, the alcohol content cannot be immediately felt, but it is definitely there.
Lasting aftertaste.

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: dark brown black accompanied with a dark tan head rising one fingers length off the body.

Smell: molasses with malts.

Taste: gray complex chocolate coming off super bitter but has an offset sweetness to it that feels like vanilla cream.

Mouth: very sticky berlengas with you put it on the glass in pairing it with Serrano ham

Overall: loved it. But definitely only one at a time. Salud!

Pours a pitch black coloration with a small, fizzy head. Smells of caramel malt, chocolate, dark fruit: raisin, fig and hints of vanilla and coffee. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by caramel malt and rum-soaked, chocolate covered raisins, with a strong vanilla note and hints of coffee, licorice and leather. Finishes with a light bitterness and some coffee/licorice notes lingering in the aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel with a very rich body and low carbonation.

This is quite sweet and boozy, but not overwhelmingly so, being somewhat balanced by a decent bitterness in the finish and notes of coffee and licorice. Still a little too boozy for my taste, but lovers of rich, sweet and boozy stouts will surely love this.
