Though it's not the biggest foreign extra stout around, this beer has everything a stout lover wants and the style demands. Red highlights peek out from this black beer topped by a creamy, tan head. The beer's aroma generously emits chocolate and dark roasted malt smells and a touch of alcohol that doesn't burn the nostrils. Its taste is big and bold: Ample bittersweet chocolate notes, while lightly astringent, wash over the tongue, while burnt grains dry the cheecks and balance the sweetness. The hops are tempered, presenting only a few peppery notes and a firm bitterness that lasts into the aftertaste. The brew has a medium-full body with high carbonation and a low alcohol presence.
