4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Lightly hazed, dark copper body with a full fingers worth of meringue-like, whitish foam. Fair amount of spiderweb lacing on the way down.
Smell: Foundation of lightly sweet-scented maltiness on which sit fruit notes of pears and apples. Also, a good snap of spices, smelling of everything from clove to pepper.
Taste: Sweet, sugary pale maltiness slides in before the spicy taste of cracked cloves, white pepper, cardamon, and even a bit of cinnamon. Fruity, faintly tart tastes of apples and pears along with some soft floral tones. Light bitterness. Drying, warming finish with a lingering spiciness and (still lightly) tart fruitiness in the aftertaste,
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Lightly sticky mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A good Belgian brew - you get some upfront sweet maltiness, a complex spice character, and a nice display of fruitiness. A little bit of everything.

3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Haywood Tavern, Chicago. No aroma to speak of. Pours slightly ruddy clear amber. Flavor is rich and sweet caramel and yeast with a touch of spice. Very pleasant BSA. No alchohol burn. A little dead inside, though, and lacks soul, but a very pleasant beer. Don’t know why it doesn’t smell like anything.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Visual âmbar escuro, um pouco turvo. Espuma branca rala (copo caldereta 300ml). Aroma adocicado e de especiarias. Corpo leve, carbonação média. Paladar bem dividido entre doce e amargo, ambos de leve-média intensidade. Aftertaste um pouco adstringente, mas sem nenhuma característica em especial. Ficou devendo para outras strong ales que conheço.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 Bottle. Dark yellow, golden pour with strong soapy foam head. Lovely sour aroma: white wine, white grapes, lime, yeast, hint of spices, apricot. Nice blend. Yeast deposit reveals more fruitiness. Taste is sour with a nicely balanced sweet tone. Some grapes, some lemon, some orange. Hint of pine in the development. Aftertaste is relatively neutral. I really like the Caracole lineup.
