Near black with a creamy, tan head. Solid lacing. The aroma is chocolate, with some toasted malt and hints of caramel and vanilla. The flavor reminds me a bit like the smell of vanilla extract. Velvety chocolate, smooth and rich. A delicious treat any time of year!

Buen aspecto aunque con una espuma no muy persistente. Buen aroma de chocolate stout, con un toque ahumado. Sensacion en boca mas seca de lo que me hubiera gustado, con un cuerpo bastante liviano.

Poured from a nitro can into a glass.

Brown/black liquid.

Dark khaki nitro head; a curtain of lace.

Roasted coffee & milk chocolate nose; a wonder!

Silky medium mouthfeel.

Smooth milk chocolate delight. Hint of roasted coffee. A true anytime beer; good for breakfast or the end of the night.

Uk beer, Abv 5.2%
Negra, cabeza off white sin retencion, y baja carbonatacion. En el aroma algo de cafe nada muy especial. Gusto mayormente a cafe, cacao nibs y un final ahumado, algo de sabor a alcohol y cuerpo mas bien ligero.

From 12oz glass bottle.

Look - pretty much opaque black, even in front of a bright light source. Sturdy 0.75" foam head forms from the pour into a stout glass.

Smell - Bitter-sweet chocolate tied with maltiness.

Taste - Bitter-sweet chocolate tied with maltiness, a tiny bit of sweetness, a fair amount of dryness.

Feel - Perfect carbonation level IMO. Feel is medium thickness, tingly and dry.

Overall - Pretty OK chocolate stout, nothing too special about it to separate it from other chocolate stouts. I prefer chocolate stouts to be sweet, and this one doesn't have that level of sweetness I look for. But if you prefer dryer, less sweet stouts, then more power to ya and this is definitely something you might like.
