3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle that I received as a gift from my friends Doreen and Lou. Pours black with a thin-moderate, somewhat creamy light brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light patchy lace. The aroma is roasted malt along with a bit of wet cardboard. The flavor is similar with the wet cardboard a bit more pronounced than in the nose. Dry just about from the beginning with some lingering dryness on the palate well beyond the swallow. I can’t say I recall having had a South American stout before, and this one while not great, is certainly drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm, August 2011. My first beer from Argentina.
Almost black with a medium tan head. Aroma was roasted malt, licorice and coffee. Also some notes of wood. The taste was about the same but with quite a lot of chocolate. The body was light. Not bad considering that the expiration date passed two years ago.
