(355ml bottle) Many thanks to my friend, Lubiere for bringing this back from his trip to Peru. Pours a thin, fizzy, almond head and a near opaque body. Nose of tart coffee and bitter chocolate. From my limited experience thus far with South America I am impressed - this is fairly full-bodied. Only mildly fizzy and oily yet good cocoa flavour. Good!

Bottle from Lima, Peru and it pours a dark brown with very light carbonation and a brown-egg colored head. Sweet dark malt and typical schwartz aroma and flavor - caramel, molasses, brown sugar, with minimal hops simply for counteracting the malt. Best at night when Peru cools down after the sun has left...

It is not my kind of beer. It is definitely too sweet. You could smell a side of sugar, few coffee abd malty but it could have be better to put more hop and it is missing one side torrefied. The color is nice, black and brown foam. I drank this beer in Collique-Lima.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is better than the Negras I had in Argentina. Deep dark beer with a nice moka head. Sweet fruity chocolate aroma. A bit too sweet to the mouth but enjoyable vinous taste, a little roasty or woody.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average creamy off white head that settled to a ring and left light lacing. Sweet aroma of honey and malts. The flavor had sweet malts, caramel, honey, and a very nice roastiness to it. Maybe lightly smoked also. Light body with a sweet malt after taste . Went well with my beef heart and chicken gizzard dinner down here in Chiclayo.

Poured dark brown with a nice off-white head. Dark rosted malts with the flavor of chocolate and coffee. A sweet dark beer, the kind I like mixing with a lager. Cheap, sweet, dark beer, but I like it.

VEyr nice indeed, but no that good as to have an overall over 3. It’s too sweet and enjoyable but not too quality.
