From Guevara & lynch. In shaker glass. Lunch with Pedro, paired with Viriato burger. Flat, boring, ugly dirty color, no foam and a small touch of rancidness. Not very displeasing but doesnt enthusiam either

One inch of tan head on a copper colored body. The smell is sweet and candy like, with wet grain. Moderate bittersweet and malty taste. The sweetness comes through stronger in the beginning with a slight bitter ending. Weak carbonation and medium body with a slight sticky feeling. I've definitely had better beer!

A: Pours dark amber to chestnut with a slight chill haze under a 1” fluffy cream to tan foam collar that hugs the glass.
S: Has a stiff fruit and wine aroma
T: Malty and rich with dark dried fruit and rich dense cake flavors and a sweet sour interaction especially in the finish. This is not heavily hopped.
F: Rich, full body, very fine soft carbonation.
O: An easy to drink winter warmer.

A: Pours a murky deep copper in color with a light to moderate amount of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some amber highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy sudsy light tan head that slowly reduces to a medium thick half finger thick cap surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted malts with moderate amounts of caramel and toffee sweetness. That is followed by some lighter notes of brown sugar, spices/herbs, and earthy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of toasted malts with a light amount of caramel and toffee sweetness. Very light touches of cocoa powder flavors and light flavors of brown sugar + herbs. Light amounts of earthy hops that contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades slowly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: I found this beer to be enjoyable though I can see the flavor profile not appealing to the larger American audience... there is something that reminds me of food from the Nordics in this brew (kind of like pickled or creamed herring does not appeal to Americans).

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine three finger ivory head that continues building due to very active carbonation. Aroma of caramel malt, grassy hops, spicy and slightly earthy. Flavor is biscuit and caramel malt, lightly toasty, earthy spices, mild dark dried fruit, very light cinnamon and clove. Slightly oxidized. Medium bodied with nice peppery carbonation. An interesting winter ale that leans in profile to a brown ale, but a mild one, with spicing that leans to a muddled earthiness rather than baked goods. Odd and interesting; appropriate for the season.
