3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
18/I/14 - 75cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - bottled: 20/IX/11 (2014-104) Thanks to Kraddel for sharing the bottle!
Cloudy muddy brown beer, creamy irregular beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel, some vanilla, sugary, bit fruity, dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: smoky, more smoky, then some smoke flavours. Also some caramel, little sweet. Well, it is smoked, that’s for sure... Aftertaste: very smoky again, little hoppy, some caramel, bitter touch, dried fruits. Weird beer, weird style, oh well...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle, got it from Zombier. Pours deep dark brown with medium beige frothy head. Smoke, chocolate, dried fruits and hops on the nose, exactly as expected. The taste is dominated by roasted malts, but the smoke and the hops are present as well. The palate is lightly sweet, similar to caramel. Medium body, good carbonation. Very interesting beer overall, well balanced and pretty tasty.

Ahumada, eso lo resume todo. A mí me encanta pero entiendo que no es una cerveza para todos los paladares, aunque a quien sea capaz de sacarle el gustillo la disfrutará muchísimo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, citrus and pine. Flavour seems a little unbalanced and strange for the style. Fairly sweet going into a long very bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
