650ml bottle. Clear dark reddish brown colour with small frothy off-white head. Dark malty aroma with hoppy overtones and something discreet spicy that must be the mate. Dark malty taste, a nuttily note, developing later to dry slightly roasted malty as well as dry hoppy. In this case the mate fits well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cerveceria Mateveza. Dark brown in color with a small light tan head. Coffee and roast on the aroma with mild herbal notes. Coffee and tea, roast, chocolate, and caramel on the flavor. On the blander side but not bad. Medium-bodied and a bit lower on the carb than I’d like. This beer is right around average, but doesn’t have too much wrong with it at least.

12th May 2012
Post CBC in the Hotel - ’Oh crap I have bought too many bottles again’! Clear dark brown beer, little off white head. Light palate, crisp and dry. Mild dark malts. Minerals. A little dark chocolate. This is a pretty wishy washy beer that is only redeemed by the nice dark chocolate.
