3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Dark brown pour with caramel undertones. Small light brown head, no lacing apparent. Astringent nose, also malts, fruits and some booze. Flavor profile is similar, dark candied fruits and some more malty body. Medium bodied, slightly sticky. Abrupt finish is curious. Alcohol warmth is apparent, and maybe too much so for 8%.

Very well balanced beer. Roasted and chocolate. Medium body. The 8.0% alcohol is very well hidden.

Vai bem com queijos no inverno... Um paladar mais adocicado, encorpada... Não é para os que gostam de tomar uma grade de uma vezes...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at Mercado de Ponta Negra in Brazil for R$20. The aroma on this is really nice with sweet caramel, toffee, and some chocolate. Light papery oxidation, too. This was bottled in December of 2013, though, so it’s got about 7 months on it. Somewhat transparent dark amber/tobacco colored body with a smallish light tan head present. Starts with some straight tobacco and leathery flavors. Becomes very coffee-like in the middle. A bit husky with lots of melanoidins present. Finishes a bit watery. A unique beer, which is heavy on the coffee flavors. Easily the best beer I’ve had in Brazil.

Bottle @Mondial de la bière. Ambrée foncée avec mousse faible. Nez en confit de banane. Arome en touches de céréales, notes de blé torréfié, confit de banane, aromes intéressants mais le corps est léger pour être une grande weizen bock.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Light, roasted and toffee malts meet the nose, but a little further investigation reveals some apple and slight banana. Appearance: dark cola brown with virtually no head. Flavor: Matches the nose; mostly roasted malt character up front, but lightly so and allowing for some fruity esters to come through; especially apple. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: Another interesting dark colored beer from a warmer climate; a nice but different take on the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cerveja é muito bem balanceada, de corpo médio e com gosto complexo. O final é levemente adocicado e contrasta muito bem com o fato de ela ser forte.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Def were going for an Aventinus clone. Fizzy head similar to Aventinus eisbock. The smell is bubblegum, banana, cocoa, and clove. Flavor is wheat, banana, dark fruits, sligth booze. This is a poor-mans Aventinus. It is a bit too thin, sweet, and unrefined.

Bottle, lote 11. Pours dark maroon, with a finger thick head. Aroma is very pleasant, with chocolate, almost cake-like banana and kandi, dark fruits with prunes and raisins. Flavour is sweet with dark fruits, chocolate and kandi giving a long and nice sweet finish.
