Thanks to Beer_Hawk for bringing this one back form Peru to share at the Nashville tasting.
Pours a dark garnet that throws up a fleeting tan head.
Roasty dry aroma. Malt and hops are evident.
The palate is smooth and medium bodied and delivers a malty, well balanced flavor profile.
Quite decent, even if I thought it wasn’t absolutely to style. mzaar (3539) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle 650 ml. Pours dark brown, almost black, with an off white head. Aromas of roasted malt, dried fruit, coffee and raisins. Flavours of milk chocolate, raisins, vanilla and malt. Almost too sweet, but on the right side in the end. Average carbonation, medium body, sticky texture. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Thanks to my bro (beer_hawk) for bringing me this home from Peru. This brew pours with a dark brown to black body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight roastiness. A roasty smokey note is very evident in the nose. A little thin and smooth. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Thanks to Beer_Hawk for hauling this back from Peru, and saving one for the Nashville Tasting. A beer from Peru? This ought to suck. Pours mahogany with a tan head. So far, this looks like a good beer. Not much of an aroma, just very faint lager notes. Medium light texture. Initial flavor or maple and caramelized sugar, accented but some mild nuttiness and tobacco. Mildy sweet. This sort of tastes like a swarzbier, with a little less European hops and more spritzy on the palate. You know what, this does not suck at all.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average creamy off white head that settled to a ring and left light lacing. Sweet aroma of honey and malts. The flavor had sweet malts, caramel, honey, and a very nice roastiness to it. Maybe lightly smoked also. Light body with a sweet malt after taste . Went well with my beef heart and chicken gizzard dinner down here in Chiclayo.

From Festival de las Naciones, Sevilla. In Ikea’s pilsen glass. Watching "Circuito Cerrado". A bit better than the typical spanish industrial pilsner. jtw (1165) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle from Lima, Peru and it pours a dark brown with very light carbonation and a brown-egg colored head. Sweet dark malt and typical schwartz aroma and flavor - caramel, molasses, brown sugar, with minimal hops simply for counteracting the malt. Best at night when Peru cools down after the sun has left... bkurtz (1114) - LITHUANIA - FEB 8, 2009
Poured dark brown with a nice off-white head. Dark rosted malts with the flavor of chocolate and coffee. A sweet dark beer, the kind I like mixing with a lager. Cheap, sweet, dark beer, but I like it. caribou43 (1103) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2016
It is not my kind of beer. It is definitely too sweet. You could smell a side of sugar, few coffee abd malty but it could have be better to put more hop and it is missing one side torrefied. The color is nice, black and brown foam. I drank this beer in Collique-Lima. scanovajr (753) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - OCT 22, 2011
A dark brown beer with a creamy beige head. aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Taste is malty and sweet, notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice texture. Solid beer
