3.2/5  rDev +23.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

This Peruvian beer pours with a dark brown color and a tan colored head, about two fingers of it with average retention.
The aroma was expected, but still very nice - roasted malts, caramel and coffee. It's neither too strong, nor too weak.
The taste follows the nose. Sweet and roasted malts complemented by some caramel and coffee.
Enjoyable, smooth, drinkable.

Had this while in Lima.
It's a decent beer, and much much better than the normal Cusquena lager.

It's a brownish color, with just a slight head. Smells like sweet malt. Taste is gently roasted malts, a touch of creaminess. Hops don't really come through, it's mostly malt with touches of brown sugar.

Mouthfeel is OK. Maybe a little thin.

Overall it's an OK beer, but leaps and bounds above the normal Peruvian macro-brewed lagers.

this is an interesting beer. a lot like guinness extra stout in my opinion. cool thing about it is when you actually have it in peru, it's poured room temperature into an Old Fashioned glass and topped with cold coca-cola. cuts the pruney-ness a little and adds some carbonation. out of the bottle there's no head and its the same color as coca-cola. dont know who thought of doing that first, but god bless 'em.

··33 cl bottle poured into a Tulip glass (DinckelAcker glass)

App: black colour with brown head (1 finger) that dissapears quickly
Aroma: caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasty,
Taste: high sweetnes with roasty chocolate and cola notes, not bitterness at all
Palate: light body , medium carbonation
Overall: absence of bitterness drives to an unbalanced beer . Disgusting result.

Switzerland

2.9/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

330ml twist off bottle served in a Weizen glass.

A: Pours a deep amber to brown color forming a medium tan head. Low retention with a very persistent thin layer left on the top. Very few lacings left

S: Quite sweet in the nose. Followed by roasted malts and bready Lager yeasts. Notes of milk and butter too which gives the impression that some diacetyl are left. Some alcohol can be noticed in the very end, despite of the low ABV

T: Quite sweet upfront. Toffee, roasted malts, caramel malts, bready yeasts, notes of coffee, butter and light hop bitterness in the very end

M: Light bit creamy and bit molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste

O: Medium to drinkability. Too sweet. Not recommend
