Super complex beer, pretty darn drinkable, spot on for the style. Not world-class, but knocking on the door. Both beers I've tried from these guys have impressed, will hope I can get more. Worth seeking out

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Deep brown almost black color, some yeast left in bottle. Prickly carbonation and medium bodied. very light chocolate nose and flavor is sugar, chocolate and molasses. The 10% abv is hidden. $9.99 for a 20oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.

Bottle picked up from Central Market while I was in San Antonio, TX.
The beer is dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roast with prominent chocolate. Bold and flavorful. Rich and smooth with moderately low carbonation. A nice balance of bittering hops with sweet chocolate and roast. A touch of warming alcohol in the finish. Overall, this was quite tasty and easy to drink.

From the bottle.
Appearance: Deep dark brown, zero head.
Nose: Pure, rich blackstrap molasses, a bit of brighter sugar, toffee, and rich creamy milk chocolate.
Taste: Big sweet sugar and molasses punch up front that's balanced very nicely with a bit of smoke and some dried meat. This "Rapadura" sugar has a really nice, unique sweet and savory flavor combination. It fades into a nice earthy charcoal. Definitely unique and delicious.
Mouthfeel: Sticky and sugary. A bit too thin. The bottle says the body is lightened to make it more drinkable, but the flavor makes it a perfect slow-sipper. If they beefed up the body on this it would be incredible.
Overall: Really impressed with this. Unique beer from a unique place. Makes me hopeful for more good beer from South America.

Pours dark black with an almost one finger tan head, with nice retention and lacing. Nice aroma with dark roasted malt, molasses, and chocolate. There is also a sugar aroma which I believe is rapadura sugar.
Tastes much like it smells with dark roasted malt. molasses, bittersweet chocolate, and the rapadura sugar. There is also some hop bitterness for balance, and this beer has 50 IBUs. The alcohol is well hidden for a 10.5 % beer.
Full bodied with modest carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Worth trying if you get the chance.
