I always like the unexpected. This beer challenged my palette. Very complex clashing tastes: cinnamon, sour, bitter and coffee notes. The dark ruby disguises a burst of uncertainty...and uncertainty is the thrill of it!

It has been awhile since I last had this, not sure why because I like it. It has just the right amount of hops and still very flavorful yet the 8% alcohol level does not get in the way.

Deep ruby color with a light head. Smells and tastes of liquorice and caramel. The alcohol is nicely hidden but the carbonation is over the top and bites the togue very much. Mild aftertaste.

750 ml bottle from Cervezalandia shared. Beautiful ruby amber color with a nice white head that lasted only for a few seconds. Aromas of caramel, burnt sugar and hints of honey and licorice. The bottle was a bit old so the hops didn’t stand out, only slighlty biting the edge of the tongue. The taste was great!!! Caramel, sugar, definitely pronounced honey and licorice, and maybe some dark fruits!! The body was full to medium and carbonation was a bit strong!! The alcohol was perfectly hidden!!!! A great beer that I would like to try fresh!
