Stout Deliciosa con sabor a café. Parecida a Bernard de República Checa.

A. Not as aromatic as expected with all the flavor. Roasty, smooth, a bit of chocolate.

Tasty but I was expecting something a little more bold and full bodied.

Pours dark black and thick. Nice coffee and dark chocolate nose. Dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee are forward at taste, like a good espresso. Roasty aftertaste.

It's good, but as stouts go, doesn't stand out to me. Definitely coffee and wood notes, but it lacks the thickness I prefer. Drink it cold or slightly chilled, as the coffee comes out when it warms and makes it difficult to get down. EDIT: had it on draft at their brewery. Slightly better on draft. Fantastic with vanilla ice cream.

No carb, smooth. Mid body. Chocolate, mocha, roasted flavors that lasts. Nice sweetness. Very balanced, given ABV. If thicker, it would be 4+. Solid, especially for price. 3.8

Dark chocolate, caramel, and expression are strong in this stout. Ethepeon coffee beans really make this beer unique. The espresso description is spot on.

A well done imperial stout. A little bit toasty but lots of body and light alcohol bite at 9+%
