nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2007
The aroma has chocolate, brown sugar, toasted malt and coffee. The appearance is dark red/brown with a medium foamy head. The flavor has cola, brown sugar, chocolate cake, coffee, rum, and artificial sweeteners like splenda. The palate is thin but well carbonated. This has to be one of the sweetest beers I have ever had, almost nauseating!

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 2, 2007
Tasted for the first time in Japan as Cusqueña Premium Dark. Later on tasted it again in Cusco as Cusqueña Malta. Deep dark brown colour with a rather short head. Sweet aroma of roasty malt. Quite sweet bit roasty flavour with some bitter chocolate touch. A good beer though quite sweet.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Dark and thick. Very malty and brown sugary in nose and taste. Too sweet and not balanced, and a bit flat, but interesting and tasty.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Smoky, blackstrap molasses aroma is slightly dusty. Flat black with a firm and lasting thumb thick tan head. Sweet raisin/cane syrup fore is again slightly smokey and dusty. Sulphur laden molasses? The finish is quite sweet and creamy. if not for the smokey notes I’d really dig this.

Picked this one up solely because it said "Peru," and it had been a while since I’d run across a Peruvian brew. When I pulled it out of the fridge, I noticed for the first time that it said "dark beer." A dunkel perhaps? My hopes went up a bit, at least this wasn’t going to be yet another yellow fizzy international lager. Then I noticed the word "malta," and my heart sank again. I had run into this in Brazil, and it wasn’t exactly the fondest memory. On the other hand, it is a rather unique style, probably worthy of its own categorization, and one I hadn’t seen in the US before. So in a way, quite a neat little find. In any case, pours a very very dark brown, venturing well into porter territory, slight tan head. Sweet chocolate and malt aroma, yup, this is a malta alright. Flavor matched, milk chocolate, a bit of roast, and sickening sweetness that hints of molasses and sugar cane. Oddly, this became significantly better once it warmed up to near room temperature, as the sweetness seemed to marry to the chocolate a bit more, and it left the cloying behind. Honestly not a bad example of the style.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours black with a soda looking head that quickly dissipated to a ring. Looks of high carbonation. The aroma is light but of sweet malts. The flavor found some sweet chocolate and malts initially. Some hints of roasted malts also. As it warmed some corn flavor came out also. Medium body, light creamy texture, and a slight chocolate aftertaste. Enjoyed in Trujillo.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle with the US label: Cusquena Premium Imported Dark Beer. Poured a dark brown with a reddish tint and a pillowtop of tan. Little but a sweet malty aroma. The beer is sugary smooth with a very syrupy malt basis, almost like a cola. Would go well with a sweet bread, I’d say.

TheBeerGod (5568) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown to black in color with a small tan head. Nose is lightly roasted with lots of burnt caramel and sweet malts. Taste is surprisingly good! Slightly burnt caramel, sweet roasty malts, light choco notes and some light pumpernickel notes. My bottle was sweet but not nearly as cloying as some others have noted. Body is light-medium and creamy with some carbonation tingle around the edges. Finishes with more roasty malts, caramel, and light choco notes. A bit one dimensional but a nice diamond in the rough from Peru!

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown with fizzy, quickly dissipating head. The malty big brother of the premium Cusquena, somebody has just thrown in a shit load of burn malt for colouring and inadvertently sweetened the beer well beyond its simple limits. Thanks to Stephan K. for bring it back from Peru for me.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf (special thanks for crossing off a new country!). Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Bready, nutty, aromas with some chocolate. Very sweet - cloyingly sweet. Tastes of brown sugar with some cocoa in the background. Reminds me of the syrup my daughter puts on her pancakes. Its really hard to get anything else out of the tastes due to the overpowering sweetness.
