Bottled. A black beer with a nice off-white coloured head. The aroma is sweet with lots of caramel. A little roast and a little lactic character. The taste is also sweet and lactic. Lots of caramel. A beer of a little character but the sweetness does cloy a touch. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2007
UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Deep malty beer with sweet and robust flavor. Somewhat like cola. Finished sweet and caramel-esque. Small wavering head. Very nice dark lager. mjg74 (3182) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottle from BevMo, La Mesa. Pours a ruby color with a brownish head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. Some acidity as well. Very sweet flavors. Some roasted coffee as well. A slight metallic character is noticable as well. Not bad. Tmoney99 (14968) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle in Florida. Poured dark brown with a average light brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet roasted flavor with a medium sweet finish of a moderate duration. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Sweet mocha aroma. Dark brown color. Extremely sweet malt. I can almost compare it to drinking a coca cola. Not my favorite.

Aroma of chocolate and lightly toasted malt. Nearly opaque brown color with brownish high lights. Light tan head, started vigorous and didn’t entirely disappaear. Starts with sharp carbonation, chocolate, and then lightly sweet toasted malt. The sweet is not sirupy, but it is the lasting finish. There does seem to be some bitterness after the lasting sweetness finally departs. Not a hoppy lager. PorterPounder (8286) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Las Brasas Restaurant - 12 oz bottle. Cola-like brown pour with a sticky mocha colored head - sticks around a bit. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Flavor has some corn syrupy notes with a good dose of chocolate and hints of raisins and prunes in the finish. Has the potential to turn cloying - but salvages itself with a strong finish. Was expecting a sugar fest - but not too bad. Mouthfeel just on the thin side. nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2007
The aroma has chocolate, brown sugar, toasted malt and coffee. The appearance is dark red/brown with a medium foamy head. The flavor has cola, brown sugar, chocolate cake, coffee, rum, and artificial sweeteners like splenda. The palate is thin but well carbonated. This has to be one of the sweetest beers I have ever had, almost nauseating! faroeviking (11217) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 2, 2007
Tasted for the first time in Japan as Cusqueña Premium Dark. Later on tasted it again in Cusco as Cusqueña Malta. Deep dark brown colour with a rather short head. Sweet aroma of roasty malt. Quite sweet bit roasty flavour with some bitter chocolate touch. A good beer though quite sweet. kopher (593) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Dark and thick. Very malty and brown sugary in nose and taste. Too sweet and not balanced, and a bit flat, but interesting and tasty.
