Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells smoky with lots of dark malt texture and some fruity elements. Tastes of pepper, some coffee, hints of roastiness and an underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Finish yields a weird aftertaste that can best be described as chewable aspirin. Not a fan of this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a beer that I think underlies the cultural aspects of taste. This beer is served cold. I mentioned how I drink my porters around 55-60 degrees (rough numbers) on average and my friends were stating anything that warm would be piss. So, I drank this as it was served. This had a roasted taste to it. Malty. A touch of sweetness. I recall it being granular for some reason and couldn’t place it. It was definitely a thin, watery beer though. I did want it to warm to get a better feeling, but drank it all before it got to the temp I am used to. For an Argentine beer, it was my fourth favorite. It was a really good beer for when I am down there, but to be honest - if I could buy it up here I would not.

Translucent, thin, too pale, like they took a good porter and mixed it with too much water. A touch of creaminess to this but pretty bad over all.

A light and unassuming porter. Not particularly aggressive with a thin body. A good porter for someone who doesn’t like porter.
