1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fazer cerveja com rapadura é coisa de quem quer lembrar da infancia, das saias da vovó fazendo pé de moleque; Uma péssima surpresa. No início um leve amargor permeado por desagradável azedume acético, que permaneceu até o final aliado a leve acidez. No paladar um corpo médio-leve, de textura aguada, forte carbonatação e moderada adstringência no final. Infelizmente o azedume acético acima relatado prejudica todo o desempenho da cerveja, mesmo levando em conta a diminuição desta sensação após deixa-la repousando por alguns minutos.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a medium beige head. Aroma is heavy caramel and sugar (rapadura), coffee, cocoa, some dried and red fruits, earthy and herbal notes. I vould smell that forever! Taste is very sweet (sugar, caramel, honey), some red fruits. Heavy sweet aftertaste. This beer is good but very sweet for my taste...

Bottle at PIB 2016, pours a red-tinted dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma brings out lots of dark fruits, some sherry oxidation and a touch of roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of dark fruits and sherry oxidation. A little off but still pleasant. Okay.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
600 ml bottle with a production date that I can’t decipher.
Pours a near pitch black with an inch of tan foam. Minimal lacing.
The smell is fruity, roasty, very sweet from the malt and cane sugar. I can’t not mention how up in my nose the alcohol is.
Roasted malt, chocolate, sugary sweet malt, hints of licorice in the taste along with a strong alcohol presence. Something tells me that this isn’t the freshest bottle out there but perhaps that’s a good thing.
Full bodied with medium carbonation.
Despite the strong alcohol notes, I’m enjoying the slow sips that I am taking.
