330ml bottle from Carrefour, Barcelona (€0.85):
This one was quite a basic beer on the whole and pretty much what I've come to expect from mass-market beers like this, although it was relatively easy to drink. The beer kicked off with some nutty flavours and a touch of caramel to impart some early sweetness to proceedings. There was a strong roasted bitterness to the beer throughout with touches of toffee nearer the middle that helped add to the earlier sweetness, a few burnt flavours managed to sneak in too though. It's probably not a beer I'd go back to again, even if it was more readily available.

Looks like a Chimay Bleu.

Not a fan of the aroma, reminds me of Walkers ready salted...

Very choclatey and Guinnessey, pretty good in fact. Heavy and good for a cold winters evening in Madrid, or instead of a meal...

Pours deep brown, almost black, clear with a very mild white foam head, almost no retention. Aroma is nice and complex, dark fruits, malts, chocolate, no hops. Taste is sweet, bitterness is low lots of licorice. Medium body with low carbonation. Nice beer, not great.

This really stands out in a sea of sameness of Spanish beers. The roasted malts shine through in both the smell and taste. I recommend seeking this one out.

From Mas. In Ikea's english pint glass. Watching Breaking Bad 4x04.idnt enjoy and wont repeat, but I have to recognise that at least it has more character than typical spanish macro lagers. It lasts longer than usual because its torrefact bitterness makes me be drank it slowlier.

A hand carry back from Spain.
Really quite pleasant dark lager, well balanced, lots of malt, reasonably sweet, and easy drinking. Hint of coffee and roast.
Nice.
