Pours a copper-brown reminiscent of Panela. The aromatics are abundant with brown bread, candied nuts, molasses and hints of chocolate. The taste is full flavoured with its unique characteristics coming from a substantial panela addition. Because of the panela’s handcrafted process—dehydrating raw sugarcane juice over low heat—it retains the flavourful molasses. The beer finishes dry with a slight hop bitterness at the end.
