The best thing with this beer was the reading on the backside of the bottle. Sour and alcohol....

Cerveja de cor marrom profundo, brilhante e relativamente translúcida. A cor de Carvalho convida para uma cerveja forte e de personalidade forte. O aroma já traz as notas de chocolate meio-amargo e leve toque de baunilha. O sabor é surpreendente; uma Ale que é praticamente um stout, faltando apenas o toque de café. O chocolate se destaca, mas não torna a cerveja extremamente doce devido a boa presença de lúpulo, o que cria um equilíbrio interessante através dos extremos do doce e do amargor. O sabor é uma extensão do aroma, mantendo a suavidade e carregando o toque de baunilha. O pálato poderia ser mais envolvente, porém o corpo leve é perfeito, mantendo a cerveja como uma ótima Ale. O sabor é complexo na medida certa e o aftertaste seco agradabilíssimo. Boa para carnes com molho e para dias de frio. Excelente cerveja!

maybe I’m just getting bored of pales but this is gorgeous. its easy to see from this why the most innovative us breweries are obsessed with emulating old british beer styles. molasses, treacle and roasted malts are leavened with a drying hop bitterness. hearty and sophisticated.

BOTTLE 33 CL from Grumbo. Really dark ruby red, beige creamy head. Velvety dark toffee aroma, some old wine with notes of dried fruit and some herbal hops. Slightly toasty and a hint of alcohol. The taste: smooth dark caramel, and a spicy hoppy finish. Very good!
