1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, 355ml. A mahogany beer with a small creamy head that fades away almost inmediatly. It has a floral aroma with a lot of alcohol. Taste reminds me of cider, but not in a pleasant way. It is too sour and there is something else going on, but I don´t want to keep drinking this beer to find out. It is completely off balance and becomes almost undrinkable. Between this and a macro, I would choose neither.
The first beer I pour down the drain!

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a deep copper colour with a thick brown head that fades quickly. Strong roasted and alcohol aroma. Sour, but not in a pleasant way (and I love sour ales). I’d say infected but I know better. This sourness is prevalent in most Calavera brews, but this is the first time I had a problem with it. If I had to describe the aftertaste with one flavor, it would be dog feces. Not a good beer, and down the drain it goes.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Delerium Cafe in Rio de Janeiro. We learned upon ordering that it was 2-for-1, so we had to drink two of these (thankfully there were 6 of us). Very cloudy amber brown with a small golden head. Extremely sticky sweet, dates and demarera sugar, not much yeast character. Too simple, too sweet.
