Panzerfaust (558) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 15, 2013
3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled from Tottus supermarket, Santiago Pours a cloudy brown color with lots of particles and a big pillowy head. Aroma is malty, heavy with notes of molasses, chestnuts, torroncino, caramel and milk. Neglegible smokey character... barely present at all. Taste is sweet with middle complexity and clear caramel and nutty notes. A slight touch of dried apricots is clear in the finish. Body is big, like a Wee Heavy, smooth and velvety. Off-style but good effort by this Chilean microbrewery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 Served from a bottle, got it at the jumbo in Viña del Mar. Smoky malt aroma with a strong touch of alcohol, very complex. Something else there I can´t quite make out. Poured a deep amber brown with a strong three fingers of foam that clung to the glass. Fairly smooth, light sweetness and medium bitterness, coffee, good but with something disagreeable in the aftertaste, almost watery, metallic I think . Full bodied and sticky, not so good, but not ¨bad¨either.
