This big, thick, malty stout is always a favorite. But this time I aged it 17 months, not entirely for any good reason, but I am fairly certain that it improved the flavor, tamping down the hops, bringing out more chocolate and brown sugar. The aged beer is softer, almost like it is more syrupy. It may also have focused the minor coffee flavor in a good way too. Only way to tell for sure would be a side by side to see if it was worth the wait, which is not going to happen, I am not that geeky, but what is clear as day is that this is really good mierda, old or young.

Very interesting. Alcoholic tasting. Coffee notes with unexpected spice. Thinner than it looks. Like a Guinness + more alcohol + a little IPA. Would drink again but not sure what it goes with. Maybe a steak. It actually tastes like drinking coffee rubbed Venison. Did not go well with pizza.

Very dark and malty. Coffee flavored, with a heavy mouthfeel and smooth. I like the finish. This is a pricey but premium beer.
