3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint choc aroma, black in colour with poor head. Smooth, dry grainy choc taste not too much complexity, touch of liquorice and english hops. Needs to liven up a little to be good but liked it though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle conditioned, a cloudy dark brown with a bubbly tan head. A tart chocolate malt aroma. An earthy bitter palate, the malty flavour only slightly toasted, with only hints of chocolate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Valdivia city. When I was in front of this beer, I was very moved because finally after so much time I was obtaining it. I get disappointed. Not if, it was for the rapidity with which I drank it, for my short trip, or because I did a lot of illusions to myself.
Has a dark brown color, with some clearer lights. A normal head.
The aroma is well Malty, with something of coffee and brown peanut.
In the palate is the disappointment. It begins well, with brown grains, coffee and something of hop. But then has a tart end, with an acid viciousness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: dark brown. Medium head, beige color and low persistence.
Aroma: Sweet of the toast malts, highly toasty, candy, bitter chocolate and grain coffee. Reminiscence of red wine. Very sour, similar to grapefruit and pineapple. Finish with presence of hop.
Flavor: unfortunately too mush citric for the style, maybe exists infection problems. In spite of this, in the taste exist the toasty of cereals, touch of coffee, chocolate and the vintage wine. Problems of sourness dominate this beer.
Palate: Medium body with semi-oily texture. Low carbonation.
I was waiting of this beer a good beer. But I will re-tasted in the future.
