MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Furious bubbling sets the stage for whirling toast, earth, spice and caramel, as Coca Cola impressions are enhanced with every sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the brown gown.
-This was drunk in La Paz (very high altitude), which might explain the intense carbonation upon the first sips.
-This is actually drinkable.... for those who like soft drinks.
-Hops are a complete no show.

Can.

hazy sepia, thin white ring. Way ashy cereal grains nose, light chocolate. Sugary front palate is moderate chocolate and oxidation, throughout end is ultra sweet, no malt, no bitterness.

Lubiere (11148) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
A clear brown beer with a thick frothy collapsing brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, light roasted notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet cloying caramel malt with light roasted notes, sweet and cloying, not my thing. Can from Hypermaxi, La Paz.

33cl bottle pours a deep brown with some foamy, white head. Nose has lots of turbinado sugar, root veg, rootbeer. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, rootbeer. Thin finish.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Negra. Espuma ocre. Aroma plano. Sabor malteado, pero extraordinariamente dulce, pura azucar. No tnego claro si es cerveza. Desde luego si solo existiera esta en el mundo yo no estaria escribiendo esto ahora.

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
Nice appearance with lingering head and a dark brown body, plenty of carbonation visible. Aroma is very soft malts and coffee. Flavour is intense low-alcohol sweetness with a sugary finish. Surprisingly this contains alcohol, which is a huge hit as it would work much better as a zero alcohol drink.

Bottle at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting. Shared by nimbleprop, thanks! Poured a dark brown sugar, lots of sweet roasted malt, some sugar. Taste is about the same. Not great, but not awful.
