3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks like a slightly flat Coke. Grainy, lightly caramel aroma with no skunky notes - surprising since it came from a clear bottle. Flavor is caramel, lightly toasty, with just a hint of smoke. Not, bad, I’ve certainly had worse.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, chestnut-brown colour with a beige and tall foamy head. Sweet toffee-malty aroma with spicy notes of anise and a tinge of marzipan. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malt-accented taste with present notes of caramel, toffee and a whiff of nuts; moderately sweet and caramely malty finish with hints of sour dough and shy herbal hops. Not that bad. 20.I.12

Took a few swings of this from the bottle, but found it to be very good, so I poured it in to a wide mouth glass. Aroma is plain of roasted malt. Flavor is clean, and chocolatey. Palate is pleasant. My ratings tonight have become generic. Overall a decent beer that I didn’t see coming.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl. Nearly opaque chocolate with ruby tints and a lasting bead of cream above. Nose of skunk, with hints of caramel and light roasted coffee. Flavor is similar, with some toasted nut developing a bit later. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and well-balanced. Once the skunk nearly wore off (or wore me down), it really was a special dark beer from Mexico.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 355ml (BZ, BB 061111)
Deep amber color, steady creamy beige head. Caramelly, bock-like bready, toasty maltyness. Light to medium-bodied. Cola-like caramelly flavor, sweetish with light harsh maltyness in the finish. Suprisingly similar to some FIN/SWE/EST Viennas. Nothing special but way too better than expected.
