Laugar Aurrera Stanitsa

Brewery: Laugar Brewery
Country: Spain
ABV: 11.2%
Style: Stout – Russian Imperial

Brewer Description: (from website) Framed within the Dark series, the result is a nearly inexpresable texture and density, where the heavy presence of Honduran coffee and raw muscovado sugar are the protagonists in both smell and taste.

My rating: 3+
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.04
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.9

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of May 2023. Poured into what I guess is a water glass (being all that I could find at the hotel late at night).
Appearance: Black in colour with no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, coffee grounds, light nuttiness.
Taste: Roasty, coffee, light to moderate sweetness, chocolate, dark fruit, raisin, candied dates, brown sugar, molasses.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Good and interesting flavours, but perhaps on the verge of being too sweet for me.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of February 2023. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with pretty much no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, malty, chocolate, molasses, with notes of caramel, coffee and dark fruits.
Taste: Moderately roasty, chocolate, umami, soy sauce, dried dark fruit, molasses, caramel malt, with a hint of coffee.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and flavours were fine, but the body was definite lacking and much lighter than I would prefer and expect in an Imperial Stout.
