500ml keg from Factoria Plaza Vieja, Havana:
A decent third beer from this Havana based brewpub but one that definitely wasn't as dark or malty as expected; the anticipated roasted flavours were also missing sadly. The beer as a result felt closer to an amber ale than a dark lager but it was still enjoyable given how hard it is to find a decent beer in Cuba at times. While not as good as the Obscura from the brewery in my opinion, this one is still a beer well worth checking out if you happen to find it in Cuba.

From notes. I kinda waffled on classifying this one - it's not really that dark at all, but is roasty and ... well ... it's cuba...

This seems like a newer addition to the line-up. It wasn't actually on the menu, but I noticed a note on one of the brew tanks and ordered by name.

The beer itself is a hazy copper-brown, with a excellent sticky and substantial head. Strong caramel and roasted aromas dominate the nose, with a barely there hop breaking through. Taste is roasted bitterness, some nuttiness, and too much fruit. Quite sweet as well, which gets to be much near the end, but with a distinct molasses flavour as well. I wonder if they cut the malt with raw sugar or molasses or something. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat astringent.
