RAT|NG: ●●●●● 4.1

WHAT THEY SAY:

Deep black

opaque body with

medium high and

creamy. Marked

toasted and

roasted aroma

that is wrapped in

liqueur and nutty

touches. Striking

and complex

in flavor with a

predominance of

notes of coffee

and chocolate

with a slight

bitterness and

subtle aftertaste.

WHAT WE THINK:

This Spanish take

on a Russian

Imperial Stout has

quite an unusual

aroma when you

first pour it with

hints of coffee,

slight acidity

and liquorice.

The initial taste

is coffee then

there is increasing

sweetness and

liquorice flavour

the more you

drink. A bitter

aftertaste that

isn’t too strong,

making this

another easy

drinker.
