look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Note: consume until the end of October'13. According to the brewer, you should drink this beer as soon as possible. It's a 'fresh' beer, expected to be consumed quickly for its smell, taste and mouthfeel not to fade away.

A: Pours a nice black body with a little caramel head with both no retention and lacing. 3.00
S: Too sweet: sugary, sweet coffee, caramel. 2.75
T: It's has a very low profile of tasting when you compare it to normal stouts or porters. 2.75.
M: Too watery. This beer has no creamy body nor a medium mouthfeel. No bitterness to speak about nor any good thing. 2.75
O: I've drank a Vadia Preta before on tap and it was (much) better than this bottle. The freshness of this bottle is doubtful.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 4C). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L15/2014LP. AROMA: pungent sour / vomit like aroma that overpowers all other aromas (very faint roasted malt aromas, no hops or fermentation byproducts). APPEARANCE: very dark brown to black color and opaque. thin tanned head with poor retention. TASTE: horrible sour taste certainly from contamination. faint roasted flavors. undrinkable. PALATE: light body. OVERALL: as other "Vadia" beers with the same aroma / flavor, this batch shouldn’t be sold. its clear the brewhouse has somekind of infection given the high levels of butyric / acetic acid present in all the "Vadia" beers tasted. The bottle went to the drain as it is undrinkable.
