Mocha type smell but also sorta the typical "warm beer smell" even though I wasn’t drinking it warm. Taste is very smooth but too sweet. It tastes fine if you like sweet stuff though. Goes down as smooth as it tastes. Different - Not bad

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This Peruvian beer pours with a dark brown color and a tan colored head, about two fingers of it with average retention.
The aroma was expected, but still very nice - roasted malts, caramel and coffee. It’s neither too strong, nor too weak.
The taste follows the nose. Sweet and roasted malts complemented by some caramel and coffee.
Enjoyable, smooth, drinkable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks tomer. Very dark brown, opaque, tan head. Sweet chocolate and sugary aroma, sweet coffee taste. Light body, smooth, sweet aftertaste. A scoop of vanilla ice cream would be nice to have with this beer. Vegan ice cream, of course.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
At a tasting, thanks teddybeer, clear dark brown with some lightish taints, aroma of dark bread, figs and dates, flavour of dried fruits and and caramel, with some charred wood in the back, extremely sweet as if someone intentionally put extra sugar inside. Drinkable but could have been better with less sweetness.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hard to say anything nice about that one. Sweetish, artificial and kinda cheap. Well, it is still drinkable but more of being a syrup than a beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low steady head and medium to thin body. Aroma of malt and woods. Taste of malt, dark grains, nuts, torf and leaves. Light spicy hints. Easy to drink but just nothing that interesting or nice.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Al olor y la vista, resulta una schwarzbier normal y corriente. Sin embargo es en el trago, y en especial en el regusto, donde resulta una cerveza muy poco agradable, con un dulzor extraño e intenso, casi artificial, y un recuerdo incómodo de la levadura.
