UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 I really like how this beer pours, dark color with good head and a really good retention, good creamy body and good dry coffee flavour.

Pours black with deep, rich head (even without the 2 minute pour). Aroma is caramel, with a hint of roast. Taste is thick caramel with a hint of sweet coffee. Finish is creamy and smooth. And old standby that maintains with longevity.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 Una decepción. Difícil de conseguir en Colombia. Cerveza sin cuerpo para el estilo. Sin aromas para percibir.

Caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast maltiness. Floral happiness that, although 50 IBU is not overpowering by any means; tastes well-balanced. Dough presence, and somewhat vanilla in a creamy thick kind of broth.

Apariencia : marrón oscuro (aprox. 25 SRM) de buena translucidez. Cabeza color beige de tinte gris con muy buena retención y encaje. Nariz : Granos tostados y ligero dulzor de melaza, almendras y lúpulos florales casi imperceptibles Boca : ingreso vivaz, sabor a cereales y galletas. Cierta acidez con final tostado y amargor moderado (25 IBU aprox.). Cuerpo ligero-medio. Buena carbonatación

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 Warning. You will turn into a majestic wilder beast after drinking this delicious beer! You can’t go wrong with a pint of Guinness!

I remember the first time I had it. It was awful, but I was only 20 yo. Now it's one of my favorites, a go to when in a pinch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bevuta alla spina. Molto leggera, sapore di caffè, malto tostato e un po' di cacao. Carbonazione molto leggera, quasi assente. Fra le migliori birre da supermercato.

NB: Le mie valutazioni si basano sullo stile della birra. La presentazione di queta birra è bellissima. Color nero, schiuma color marroncinio chiaro con bollicine finissime. La schiuma è spettacolare. Per quanto riguarda il sapore si sente fortemente l'affumicatura e il cacao ma anche il cappuccino. L'affumicatura e il cacao sono predominanti. La consistenza di questa birra è particolare: è più densa di una birra media. La carbonazione è bassa ma per me troppo bassa. Dopo qualche minuto la frizzantezza è quasi azzerata e questo rovina un bel il gusto della birra. La birra è buona, dissetante, leggera e gustosa.
