desde porto para el salvador es una excelente cerveza oscura y suave, con tonos de caramelo y cafe y un balance inequivocable de sabor que trasciende fronteras - desde francia, super internacional. BRAVO!

Tap in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Fizzy, light, carbonated. Low boost. Quenching. Atmosphere truly kills it though.

Got a bottle in a supermarket in Braga, Portugal. I thought this one was out of the market, but it seems that its back. Dark dense color with redish bottom. Thin to medium brownish head. Low sweetness. Medium to high carbonation. Coffee and roasted aroma.

(Old BA rate Bottle courtesy of BeerTruck, huge thanks for the generosity!) Pours with a minimal half-finger of tan head that dissipated pretty quickly, but left a small layer of tans spottiness; very dark brown verging on black, with clear ruby hints. Lightly sweet maltiness; almost like a bit of lactose sugar in the nose, caramel?; touch metallic and only a faint hint of roastiness. The flavor does show the light roasted quality, with light hints of sweetness. Its almost like a caramel light coffee drink, but only the coffee is really muted if present at all. Taste is actually not bad at all for the style, and certainly more interesting than most in the range. Thinner body that is a little slick, and the carbonation doesnt rear up to aggressively which matches alright with the taste and the overall delivery. Just OK drinking, and not a bad change of pace. Certainly not as hearty as I would have hoped

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUL 13, 2008
Thanks to rcasta who brought it all the way from Porto, Portugal. Pours dark brown almost black with a tan head. Sweet tones of caramel and coffee, lacked balance, needed more hops.
