3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
600 ml bottle labeled as “Guanabara”. Deep brown color with a black center, almost no head. Aroma of cocoa, molasses, tobacco and shoe leather. Flavor is some milk chocolate, molasses, burnt sugar and some alcohol. Soft carbonation with a sugary finish. It’s good but could be better with a more full/ roasty body. A bit on the thin side watery side. Still worth a try.
