QUIJOTA NEGRA, Stout.
5.0% alc/vol, EBC 84, 40 IBUs
Serve between 8 – 10º C
Its voluminous, creamy and persistent foam is striking, almost reminiscent of French mousse, and tempting to dip a spoon into.
Jet black color, although its retained transparency can still be observed when exposed to strong light, revealing red nuances.
Moderate to high flavor, due to the maximum toast of malts, with hints of roasted coffee beans provided by the torrefied barley, although not prominent.
Crisp medium-high hop bitterness, not remaining in the mouth, and high carbonation despite not using CO2, as it is obtained by natural means.
Medium body, somewhat creamy, with sweet chocolate scent. Alcohol character is present but not in excess.
The kings of its pairings are oysters, mussels, pizza with anchovies, Camembert cheese and dishes containing chocolate in their sauces.
Within the sweet universe, forest fruit tarts and chocolate desserts are good pairings, and it’s a perfect companion for coffee, replacing brandy.
