4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(Bottled 50 cl at SMÖF-08 - Söderbärke)
On October 24, 2008
BB 12 ABR 2008
First sample: Clear copper color, before sediment is poured, then turns more cloudy. Fluffy lasting tan head. Malty, sweet, smooth, strawberry cream, cake, scent. I want to eat it with a spoon for dessert! Big, sweet, malty, fruity, alcohol, grainy taste, nice!!! Smooth mouthfeel, low to medium bitterness. Even better with sediment poured in.
Went back and bought 4 whole bottles that I finished one by one, amazing beer! One of the best beers I’ve ever had! Pushing rating after a while to: 9/4/10/5/19=4.7
These bottled had been stored for about one year, seems to have been good for it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Cloudy dark amber, small head. Caramelly nose. Warming with husky caramelly malt flavour. Hugely malty with balanced sweetness and cottony soft mouthfeel. Full bodied. Not very complex - it’s all caramelly malt flavours, but very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy reddish brown colour with a small white foam. Malty sweet aroma of hazelnuts, caramel and fudge. Full and malty sweet flavour of caramel, fudge, brown sugar, almonds and hazelnuts. Sweet but never cloyingly so finish spunned sugar, caramel, fudge and alcohol. Tasty but still quite simplistic. Lovely malt character.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m suprised this one lived up to the hype after tasting a couple of the other Araucana lines. It’s a very good beer. Not necessarily the best beer I’ve tried here but most of the better ones haven’t had any people rate them yet. A great drink reminiscent of the complexity of a Belgian strong ale. Smell is sweet with alcohol. Almost a kind of scotch, oaky taste. Look all over the place in El Bolson and Bariloche to find this line and finally got a 500 ml bottle at an ice cream parlour beside the craft market.

(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 6 feb 2008) Amber colour with huge, frothy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, dried fruit and blood oranges. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, citrus, caramel and a spicy finish with hints of american hops. Medium body, slightly sweet with a balanced fire burning throughout. Very nice beer.
