1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
In Buenos Aires, Argentina. Pry-off into hotel tall cocktail glass. Heads up pretty well (especially given that glass is not beer-clean). Color is medium-dark brown. Aroma sweet. Flavor is nutty, as stated, but strong towards cloying Little hop balance--some bitterness in the finish, but minimal hop aroma/flavor. Overall, this beer doesn’t make me want to drink more of it.

Starts off with a decent nutty smell and the initial taste is even good but it falls off all at once to leave nothing. Best beer so far in Argentina, but Im anticipating some of the better microbrews.

Purchased this beer in Argentina and poured into a glass mug to drink. The beer had a dark caramel-light brown color with a dark orange hue and was fairly cloudy with a medium-sized creamy tan head that had short retention but decent cling. The beer had a rich roasty caramel, nutty, and molasses aroma with a cereal and grainy hops mix. It had a sweet caramel and brown sugar taste with a mixture of nuts and a touch of sour grain too. The body was fairly smooth with low carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle at Lapa Café, Rio de Janeiro. Very interesting, different beer. Pours dark reddish brown with almost no head. Aroma is very sweet and buttery, with a heavy scent of roasted nuts. Tastes mainly of malt with bitter dark chocolate, nuts, and dried fruits. Alcohol is 6.0 ABV but goes almost unnoticed, smoothly. Very exotic and pleasant, with lots of complexity. I don’t quite understand all these low ratings given by most of the reviewers.
