97 Points/World Class, The Allstrom Brothers, Beer Advocate:
Soft powdery mouth feel with a crisp carbonation and medium body. Smooth. Very evident clove flavour up front and stays around throughout the beer. Hints of birch and ginger beer-like flavours, peppery medcinal phenols and light herbal tea hop flavour. Quite malty but it stays in the back. Fruitiness is likened to a delicate date sweetness and ripe plum. As the beer warms, there's also a suggestion of chocolate/carob. Finish dries a little though still a bit of residual sweetness leftover, herbal flavours also.

Brewer's Notes: Malted milk, chocolate and fresh-ground coffee bean aromas bring to mind the finest cup of authentic cubano espresso coffee while flavors of toffee, semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of roast on the palate are complimented by espresso and a touch of milk sugar.

Brewer's Notes: Named for its velvety smooth, creamy texture, this incredibly rich stout is brewed with 10 different specialty roasted malts chosen that impart notes of rich mocha and espresso. Dark and sweet tones intermingle with a soft, roasty finish.

Delicate, floral, grassy aromas and flavors of lemon verbena and basil, lemon pudding cake, fruit loops, and pickled melon with a silky, crisp, petillant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length candied violets, earl grey tea with cream, and minerals finish.
