UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Cloudy dark amber, small head. Caramelly nose. Warming with husky caramelly malt flavour. Hugely malty with balanced sweetness and cottony soft mouthfeel. Full bodied. Not very complex - it’s all caramelly malt flavours, but very good.

First sample: Clear copper color, before sediment is poured, then turns more cloudy. Fluffy lasting tan head. Malty, sweet, smooth, strawberry cream, cake, scent. I want to eat it with a spoon for dessert! Big, sweet, malty, fruity, alcohol, grainy taste, nice!!! Smooth mouthfeel, low to medium bitterness. Even better with sediment poured in.
Went back and bought 4 whole bottles that I finished one by one, amazing beer! One of the best beers I’ve ever had! Pushing rating after a while to: 9/4/10/5/19=4.7
These bottled had been stored for about one year, seems to have been good for it!
I’m suprised this one lived up to the hype after tasting a couple of the other Araucana lines. It’s a very good beer. Not necessarily the best beer I’ve tried here but most of the better ones haven’t had any people rate them yet. A great drink reminiscent of the complexity of a Belgian strong ale. Smell is sweet with alcohol. Almost a kind of scotch, oaky taste. Look all over the place in El Bolson and Bariloche to find this line and finally got a 500 ml bottle at an ice cream parlour beside the craft market.
