3.3/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - pours with one finger of tan foam on top of a black body with a hint of amber showing through. Good retention, light lace.

S - dark bread with a bit of toffee and dry caramel.

T - sweet malt up front, toffee and brown sugar in the middle. Some light hops and a hint of roasted character shows up in the finish but isn't enough to balance the sugar.

M - a somewhat thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - kind of an anemic stout, but it is a halfway decent brown porter. One dimensional sugary character without any real malt or hop bitterness to balance.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

970ml bottle poured into pint glass 25/8/11

A darker shade of maroon with a two finger mocha head that hangs around for a few minuets leaving lace where it existed

S faint licorice and molasses pretty basic and I doubt this ice cold serving dose much to bring out the aroma

T some prune with faint chocolate and coffee to go with what little I could smell, an improvement over the smell

M enters silky and bubbles quickly give it some life, thin but enough carbonation to keep it from feeling flat

O by far the best Quilmes beer I've had but that sadly means it's pretty average

Perhaps my last pint in South America, I may have time for quite a few more if Irene heads towards Miami cancelling my flight.

Thanks to Ben for this little souvenir from Argentina!

Deep brown color with a thin layer of taupe suds that cling a bit to the side of the glass.

The smell is of cereal grain and mushrooms. Let's hope it doesn't taste like that.

The taste is quite sweet, especially for the style. Some artificial chocolate flavor, kind of like Cocoa Puffs. Cereal grains and husks as well. It's not bad, and it's not great. It is average.

The carbonation is very soft and fluffy. Medium body with a dry finish.

I am so glad that I got to try this beer. I think it shows that without the proper malt, you can achieve a fine beer, but it cannot be great. This is very drinkable and not off putting, but without the high quality ingredients available for beer in Argentina, you cannot achieve great quality. I still like it and applaud Quilmes for brewing this as it can't be easy in a huge wine dependent country like Argentina.

Giving this a bit of the benefit of the doubt. Got this bottle in Buenos Aires about three years ago and brought it home with me. Was sure I'd rated it before, but.... Poured with a small, fizzy tan head that faded to zero and no lace. Color is a very dark, almost opaque brown with garnet highlights and some sediment floating around. Aroma is malty and a bit roasty. Flavor's the same but with sweetness standing out. Not much "stout" character. If anything, and this would be a stretch, maybe a sweet stout. Body's a bit thin and lightly carbonated. Finish is malt and sweet. I'll have another next time I go to Argentina and it's the best option.

Cerveza negra, what an amazing surprise to find on the pampas of Argentina. This is the best beer I had in Argentina, while nothing special on the world stage, definitely a surprise in wine country.

Poured into a standard small Argentine beer glass from a 750ml bottle by our beautiful Argentine waitress

Apprearance: Dark coffee color, bit of transparency and a bit of red. Light bubbly head, leaving a fine lacing all the way down.

Smell: Surprisingly pleasant maltiness, a larger than average hopped aroma. Beer was served quite cold masking the subtleties.

Taste: Average, nothing outstanding. nice malt, heavy hop. Would get a 4 if only competing in the region.

Mouth Feel: Light, a bit watery. Large amount of carbonation, I see the Argentinians are holding true to the American styling

Drinkability: Goes down easy, definitely a nice beer for an all evening session.

I have been in Argentina for most of my trip and it is by far the best country in S. America for beer. Either way I was pleasantly surprised with this little gem.

The appearance is good, not as dark as I like but it is just a plain stout, not RIS. So it has the sugar brown color that looks just a little watered down. Comes with a very light brown head that is real frothy and leaves a nice residue or lace.

The smell is great because it has multilevels of flavor. Chocolate, sweet cooking bitter cocoa, a light hint of grain, some buttery smell. Overall pleasant.

Tastes good, the chocolate smell is represented well in the taste. It has small hints of every smell in the taste.

Overall a great brew that I would drink back home. Has good smell and flavor, and surprisingly enough probably could only drink a liter of it and be done, ha ha.

Another gift from my world traveling sis, poured from the bottle into a pint glass beer is jet black with a thin, creme colored head. The smell is malty with some toasted undertones and a sweet, fruity smell. The flavor reflects some of the same fruitiness along with some lightly toasted malts, decently balanced. The mouthfeel is a bit watery for a stout and the carbonation is also thin. Overall, a very drinkable beer and probably one I would drink if I was in AR.
