Intro: A 375ml corked and caged bottle, with a best before date of July 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with suspended sediment and a half finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Tart, apricot, plum, oak, with a hint of vinegar.
Taste: Sour, tart, plum, apricot, oak.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: An easy to drink, simple sour. Aroma was nice, but I would have preferred more carbonation as it felt flat to me.

Intro: A corked and caged 375ml bottle, with a best before date of September 2020. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A very lightly hazy orange colour with a half finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some decent lacing.
Aroma: Light funk, brett, peach, apricot, honey, pineapple, mandarin zest and a touch floral.
Taste: Funky, brett, floral, light sweetness, apricot, white pepper.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The carbonation was an issue here, but I also read many instances even up to early 2018 where the carbonation was lost. However, despite this, there was definitely some interesting aroma and flavours coming through.

Dádiva Black Mist Maple

Brewery: Cervejaria Dádiva
Country: Brazil
ABV: 10.9%
Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Brewer Description: No real description that I could find. But I guess I could say Black Mist base with some version of maple added to it.

My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.04
My ratebeer.com rating: 4

Intro: A 473ml can with a FAB (fabrication?) date of August 2018. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with an almost one finger mocha brown head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and some light maple.
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, with hints of oak, maple and brown sugar. Lightly sweet with a light bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Sweeter than the original base version, but the maple flavours are not coming through strong enough considering ‘maple’ is in its name. Good roast, coffee and chocolate flavours though. But I preferred the original base version just that slightly more.
