2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can bought at Park N’ Shop Superstore in Fanling.
Clear opaque Cola-black colour; Half finger head and beige foam which last for 1 minute; Minimal lacing and active carbonation; Aroma of light roasted malt caramel, toffee, light coffee, cream and light chocolate; Taste of roasty dark malt, light black coffee, toffee, chocolate, nuts, hint of citrus, and sharp hay; Light body, watery palate; Taste profile is light dose of roast malt, coffee and nut, with pretty strong toffee, all in a watery body with pretty sharp straw background; Hoppiness is no smell, very light in citrus taste, sharp straw / hay, and barely detectable bitterness. No finish; Barely dry after taste, very easy and strawy to mouth.
Comments: A macro Schwarz with pretty good creamy nose, and everything else stays true to the style - decent roastiness but otherwise light taste and low hoppiness. The lack of creamy palate makes its watery body even more naked. Other than that, this one is probably meant for enjoyable, simple-minded chugging, and in that regards, I have not much to complain.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
No es mala. Sabor agrio ligero, un color negro atractivo. Me gusta sin volverme loco. Parecida a la Escudo pero un mejor paladar

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 500 ml bottle from mwmanvt, 1/22/13
Aroma: The nose is light and simple, with roast, caramel, toast, and just a hint of smoke
Appearance: Pours a dark brown-black color with a small off-white head that leaves drippy lace
Flavor: Tastes a little sweet, with malty flavors, and very light notes of bitterness and smoke
Palate: The body is rather light/watery, with a thin feel and a relatively short duration
Thanks Mike! I was not all that impressed by this one, but it isn’t bad. It is a drinkable beer with some OK flavors, but it came off a little lacking.
