4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very malty sweet schwarzbier w/o the smoke added to their Ahumada Negra brew. Same beer base, I suspect, just one has smoke added. Very nice. I could drink this all day! Rich and sweet yet not all that thick.

Bottle conditioned, very dark brown with a thin tan head. A strong bitter coffee aroma. A good bitter coffee flavour as well, with a delicious bitterness. Very good.

Bottle at Cruzat. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a slight head. Well-carbonated, with a light-to-medium body, dark malt flavor with chocolate notes, slight hop bitterness, hint of coffee and very clean overall. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells sweet, fruity sweet. A light bitter taste. Although it doesnt have a huge body I still preffered it to the extra invierno. On tap at the Bolson Beer garden in the center of E Bolson.

I liked this one. Obviously I am quite the authority on Argentinian beers these days (equal #4 rater on the site!) so my liking it must mean a lot to the El Bolson people. Pours like a soft drink with that fizzing noise as it hits the glass. Just like iced coffee, only with a bit of rum and chocolate. Smells better than it tastes - whilst it’s sweet it’s never too sweet. No hop at all. Thin as thin body. Doesn’t have any of the weird Belgian type stuff that all the others had. Nice.

Bottle. Dark Brown body-hue. Hazy clarity. Good mostly lasting head. Strong aroma of roasted malt and chocolate and also some honey! Moderate bitterness with tastes of roasted malt. honey and some chocolate to it. Bit sweet in the so nice long finish. Great dark brew! The bottle I had said 6,2% alc.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: dark brown with red touches. Medium head, beige color, medium consistence, persistent.
Aroma: sweetness of toasty malts, candy, sweet chocolate and toffee. Slightly smoked.
Flavor: Sweet and similar to aroma. Toasty malts, candy, grain coffee, chocolate and toffee. I remember the liquor of cacao. Sweet start – toasty and smoked end. Only in the finish I’m feeling a low presence de hop. The sweetness hidden your alcoholic level
Palate: Great body and oily texture. Low carbonation.
Advisable, a of the best beers of “Cervecería Artesanal el Bolson”.

Thanks to El Gordo for this taster!--Poured a deep dark brown with a thin taupe head. Coffee, bitter nutty chocolate sour aroma. Too sour for its own good. Acidic, bitter all the way through. Mildly sweet, but overall too acidic and sour. Aged too long. Hmmm...
