3.63/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours practically pitch black. Some good tan froth and lacing formed.

(S)- Quite sweet and rich. Tons of chocolate, raisin, and brown sugar.

(T)- Very very sweet. It is not shy of brown sugar; very sweet with some cocoa, raisin, and vanilla poking through.

(M)- Smooth carbonation level meets an extremely sweet profile overall, and I mean sweet.

(O)- Its very sweet, though I still like what I see. Not sure if age will help this, since it might just get even sweeter. (510 characters)

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Deep brown almost black color, some yeast left in bottle. Prickly carbonation and medium bodied. very light chocolate nose and flavor is sugar, chocolate and molasses. The 10% abv is hidden. $9.99 for a 20oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA. (324 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

imperial stout from brazil with a raw unrefined crystalline sugar added, which imparts not only additional fermentables for strength, but also a lovely molasses earthy sweetness in the finish which is just right. the color on this is a matte black color, with less than an inch of head, patchy and tan. the nose is curious, sweet, but still with all the dark roasted barley bitterness and chocolate malt density. earthy in a new way upon the first sip, its not just malty but also sort of volcanic or ancient and hard, difficult to explain really, but the grain bitterness melds into a beautiful raw sugar sweetness with an expertly hidden alcohol kick, which can be felt but not detected in aroma or flavor. this is quite a bit different from the american big stouts, lighter in body for sure, but there is a craftsmanship to this that is very pronounced. a delicious beer in all facets, and one i have frankly overlooked for far to long. (939 characters)

3.85/5  rDev -6.8%

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with a light amount of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and significant amounts of dark crimson highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy tan head that reduces to a thick film covering the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark fruits (plum and fig), dark malts, and roasted malts are present with a lighter aroma of lactose and some hints of brown sugar sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong aromas of dark and roasted malts with a moderate amount of brown sugar sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of dark fruits (plum and fig), some lighter flavors of licorice, and just a hint of lactose sweetness. Just a hint of bitterness in the finish.

M: Full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of alcohol warming.

O: Seems like a hybrid of a Russian Imperial Stout and a Milk Stout, very enjoyable with a light to moderate amount of sweetness and some notes of alcohol are present. Much more of a slow sipper than an easy drinker. Well constructed. (1,178 characters)

As the American-style craft beer culture broadens, the crossing of boundaries doesn't exactly lead to every brewer wanting to make beers just like those in America. Rather, when brewers in, say- Brazil, open up its taste, it's going to show a local flavor- and I welcome that in every sip.

Upon decanting the beer, its dark and luscious settling shows a dark "bark" brown with cola highlights and some chestnut hues slivering through. Regardless of its hazy wood appearance, its foam character builds upon the beer like creamy espresso creme. Dainty and confident, its low stature leads to long retention with gentle swirls of the glass.

Its sweet and toasty aromatics lead with heavy molasses and buckwheat honey. Its following columbian coffee, toasted almond, and slightly milk chocolate scent gives the stout a softer-than-usual demeanor. Heading into taste, more nutty aromas emerge with impressions of peanut, cashew and pecan.

As the taste opens, the beer's robust sweetness rushes upon the palate with the flavor of deep toffee, off-molasses, rich honey and a pep of maple. Its middle palate grows in hearty sweetness as a fruity grape, licorice and rootish chicory taste is revealed. Finishing on the sweeter side, balances of smoked embers, fennel and vinous alcohol rounds out the beer's luscious taste.

Medium-full in body, the beer's body is light and carefree- allowing all the roasty sweetness to run amuck. As ts light creaminess separates from the malt, a dryness ensues which can also reveal unpleasant taste- none of that happens with this stark and stern flavor spread.

At the end of the day, Colorado's Guanabara has impressed me with yet another flavor that borrows from America's high gravity nature, but also addresses the earthy sweetness that's better appreciated by the taste of South America- and deservingly so. (1,845 characters)

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar but when held up to the light, the edge of the glass is clear dark red. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lactose and dark malts are present in the nose along with hints of brown sugar.
T: The taste has flavors of lactose and dark malts along with notes of brown sugar along with a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be more like an Imperial Milk Stout instead of a Russian Imperial Stout and lacks roasted malts and much in the way of bitterness, but in any event, it is extremely drinkable considering the strength because any traces of alcohol are well hidden from the taste. All of the flavors seem to mesh well together. (928 characters)

From a 600 mL bottle,

A: Pours black with a moderate light tan head, solid retention.

S: Dark chocolate, hints of dark fruit - raisin plum.

T: Lots of roasted malt, hints of charcoal upfront. Dominated in the middle by fruit and chocolate, quite tasty.

M: Smooth, strong, full-bodied.

D: A beer that can stand with anything in America. Well made and flavourful. (366 characters)

Guanabara, my first from this unique brewery, gives me hops that something good is happening in Brazil as it looks good. it's pretty thick, not exactly viscous, but it's a nicely heavy-looking near-black brew that manages a good, strong tan head. It's about a full finger tall, it holds up for the session, and it leaves patchy lacing. If looks give me an idea of this beer, good things are ahead.
The aroma shows a substantial malts base with some roast but a somewhat sweeter edge, light notes of toffee, dark fruits and molasses sneaking into a dark chocolate bittersweetness. The sugars seem to provide a note like coffee liqueur.
The taste follows suit, though there's a bit more of a gentle smokiness over everything, seeming to be naturally derived from the roast. While there's a little sweetness, it's more bittersweet, and the cane sugar gives an interesting complement with the majority of the sweetness boiled out. There's a little bit of a stemmy thing, but in tune with the strong malt and the flavors it gives.
The body has a nice thickness, and these guys got the style right. It's not the heaviest, and it shouldn't be, but it's a big, thick, robust and full-bodied stout with just a nip of crispness and plenty of smoothness. (1,243 characters)

600ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark brown color forming a medium bubbled beige head. Low retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass

S: Sweet and roasty. Dark chocolate. Toffee. Caramel malts and rapadura

T: Sweet upfront. Notes of dark chocolate. Toffee. Candy sugar, brown sugar, rapadura. Strong notes of roasted malts. In overall, a bit too sweet with a nice roasted bitter end

M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet and roasted aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Nice Imperial Stout. Only a bit too sweet for the style (585 characters)

This beer was brewed as a special "one of" back in 2009 and it stood on the Colorado Brewery's cellar for about 6 months before it got approved by the very archaic Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture. It had to change it's original name " Vintage Black Rapadura " to Ithaca. On to the beer:

It pours a dark brown, almost black color with faint red hues under the foam when looked against the light. The head is light brown and persists for about a minute or so receding down to a circular layer of foam on the edges of the glass. Lacing is moderate.

Aroma is not as strong as it should be but on the other hand it is very complex: molasses, dark fruits, chocolate and dark malts.

Taste is wonderful starting out sweet with molasses, plums, figs, then trasitioning to dark chocolate notes and finishing sweet again with some Belgian yeast esters like banana. Aftertaste is long lasting with almost no bitterness.

Body is heavy on this one. It has some alcohol noticeable but it fits the bill or this style. Carbonation is perfect and not too high. A warmth sensation from the 10.5 abv fills the throat after each sip.

Overall a very nice beer from Brazil, definitely one of the best available in the country. It was brewed with a Belgian ale yeast that gives off some unwanted banana esters for a RIS but other than that it is just delicious. I remember having this beer back when it was just brewed and it did get much better with the aging. (1,444 characters)

On-tap at Revolución Mexican Steakhouse. Served in a snifter.

A - Big creamy mocha foam settles to a thin cap, leaving behind tons of lacing. Extremely dark brown body that is near-black and opaque.

S - Big roast, licorice, and molasses, with dark chocolate, and something that is reminiscent of candi sugar I'm guessing that's the rapadura sugar? Well-hidden alcohol. Gets increasingly sweet as it warms up.

T - The taste is a bit mellower, with more chocolate, caramel, and other sweet flavors, and less of the anise and roast I initially perceived. Vaguely reminiscent of coffee cake with the roast, caramel, and chocolate flavors. Again, not much in the way of alcohol.

M - Big and sticky texture, with a hint of alcohol warmth by the end of the glass. Lightly roasty in the finish before revealing some lingering stickiness. Surprising moderate carbonation keeps things from getting too heavy.

D - A nice Imperial stout that blends American sweetness and European roast and anise flavors. I had no problem putting down a snifter on my own, and for 10.5% this is fairly drinkable. (1,090 characters)

Pours a mocha colored creamy fizzy head that hits about 1/2 finger before quickly fading back, lacing sits on the side before slowly climbing back down with the thick legs of the beer, pitch black beer with no light getting through.

Nose gives that big molasses syrup aroma, must be the raw can sugar, an earthy root like sweet aroma, licorice root, some super dark chocolate bitter earthy dark chocolate, light roasty aroma with a bit of rich earthy coffee too, mocha and baker's chocolate, a little nutty even. It gets a hint of a creamy oatmeal like too.

Taste starts with tons of dark malts again, big roasty dark malts, some earthy coffee as well, but not really acrid which is nice. The roast does bring some bitterness of it's own, as well as hints of earthy hops I believe. Then waves of chocolate, tons of super dark bitter chocolate, baker's, and a little mocha too. Again it gets creamy, oatmeal like creamy taste, almost chewy level of thick rich creaminess. I get some molasses character again, pure cane sugar and earthy root flavors, with a little licorice root and baking spices. Hint of caramel and nutty toffee. The bitterness continues to grow as it goes, and fairly sweet overall but not overly sweet surprisingly. Booze is hidden well too, but comes through with just a hint of warmth. Finish is sweet and syrupy still but not too much either, a bit more booze warmth and bitterness, more roasty malts and dakr chocolate with a creamy thick mouth feel lingering.

Mouth is full bodied, very thick and rich, creamy, heavy, light warming booze balanced well by the sweetness and heavy dark malts, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice, big beer with lots of dark malts and still doesn't get acrid, nice booze bitterness and sweet malt balance, lots of nice earthy flavors too from the Rapadura, enjoyable sipper. (1,829 characters)

Clear dark brown colored beer with a tall brown colored head.

Smells sweet and fruity with a strong cherry and anise aroma. Some chocolate and caramel with some patent malt and coffee. Strong Kahlua aroma and a slight tobacco scent.

Starts out sweet and fruity with a strong bitter snap at the end. Tutti frutti fruit flavor. Little bit of chocolate and coffee. That is about it for the flavor, could be more complex.

Mouthfeel is about average for the style.

Overall a tasty RIS on the sweet and lighter side. (515 characters)

600 ml bottle into snifter, unknown bottle coding. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, molasses, toast, dark bread, licorice, raisin, herbal, light char, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, dark sugar, and light yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, molasses, toast, dark bread, raisin, licorice, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Light amount of earthy/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, molasses, toast, dark bread, raisin, light licorice, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of dark/roasted malt, dark sugar, and light yeast ester flavors; with a nice roasted sweetness/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, dark sugar, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering. (1,487 characters)

From the bottle.

Appearance: Deep dark brown, zero head.

Nose: Pure, rich blackstrap molasses, a bit of brighter sugar, toffee, and rich creamy milk chocolate.

Taste: Big sweet sugar and molasses punch up front that's balanced very nicely with a bit of smoke and some dried meat. This "Rapadura" sugar has a really nice, unique sweet and savory flavor combination. It fades into a nice earthy charcoal. Definitely unique and delicious.

Mouthfeel: Sticky and sugary. A bit too thin. The bottle says the body is lightened to make it more drinkable, but the flavor makes it a perfect slow-sipper. If they beefed up the body on this it would be incredible.

Overall: Really impressed with this. Unique beer from a unique place. Makes me hopeful for more good beer from South America. (785 characters)

Pours dark black with an almost one finger tan head, with nice retention and lacing. Nice aroma with dark roasted malt, molasses, and chocolate. There is also a sugar aroma which I believe is rapadura sugar.

Tastes much like it smells with dark roasted malt. molasses, bittersweet chocolate, and the rapadura sugar. There is also some hop bitterness for balance, and this beer has 50 IBUs. The alcohol is well hidden for a 10.5 % beer.

Full bodied with modest carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Worth trying if you get the chance. (537 characters)

On tap in Brazil.
Deepest black color with a thick caramel head with great retention and leaving laces.
Nice aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, pine, caramels, rapadura and licorice.
Bold flavor with notes of licorice, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, plums, red fruits, cola, lots of anise, some lactose and nuts, rapadura, roasted malts and some citrusy. Dry aftertaste with a muffled but present bitterness.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 10.5% abv is evident and it could be better hidden, but still harmonic with the overall beer. Sticky feeling.
Very complex and solid RIS, but balanced towards the sweet side of it and not counterbalanced by hops. The rapadura gave a nice and interesting local touch, though.
Good local offering, a pity it is not sold at Guanabara prices off-shore. Amazingly, locally an Old Rasputin has a better cost benefit, being cheaper and better. (887 characters)

I'm not 100% certain this is the same beer as my bottle has different artwork than displayed here, and it was not wax sealed. However it is named Guanabara, brewed by Cerveja Colorado, and a 10% imperial stout (this label specifies it was brewed with black rapadura if that makes any difference), so I'm just going to review it here and if it doesn't belong a new entry can be made.

A: Poured into Stone IRS snifter, it is black as night w/ a 2+ finger light tan head that slowly recedes, leaving pretty nice lacing.

S: The aroma is very unique and unlike any other stout I've had before, imperial or not. Sweet cane sugar and a vinous character is what is most up front. Maybe a hint of standard malts and roastiness, but this mostly just smells sweet/sugary.

T: It opens up as one would expect from the nose, albeit with a moderate amount of boozy flavor that was not detectable in the aroma. The middle mellows and brings the vinous character to the forefront. The finish is surprising with a healthy dose of roasted bitter bite, but this is very welcome after a lot of sweetness.

M: The mouthfeel is creamy and viscous, with just enough carbonation.

O: Overall I am very impressed with my first beer from Cerveja Colorado. Brazil may have a bright craft beer future with these guys leading the charge! (1,310 characters)

I enjoyed this from the bottle in a snifter at cellar temp.
The color is black and opaque with thin beige head with frothy with fine bead and spots of lace stick with good retention. The smell is fruity with dark cherry aroma and woody deep dark sugar smell wtih mild caramel from the malt with some cocoa accents. The feel is very good with moderate sweetness and mild roast with low bitterness medium carbonation and semi-dry finish with alcohol that is almost non apparent.

The taste has a strong chocolate malt character which I like with some caramel and light raisin with subtle spiced middle and light woody accent with hint of coffee-like earthy taste with a fruity dried type flavor in the mostly dry finish. Overall I consider this a pretty top notch stout. I would definitely try to find this again - a very good example of the style. (848 characters)

Bottle picked up from Central Market while I was in San Antonio, TX.

The beer is dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roast with prominent chocolate. Bold and flavorful. Rich and smooth with moderately low carbonation. A nice balance of bittering hops with sweet chocolate and roast. A touch of warming alcohol in the finish. Overall, this was quite tasty and easy to drink. (383 characters)

A-Dark brown pour with a one finger tan head that leaves virtually no lacing.

S- I can smell all of the 10.5% abv. There are some mild dark chocolate undertones here, and the overall smell is sweet and rich.

T- The ABV didn't come through in the taste as it did in the smell, this thang is smooooth! Subtle bitterness from the hops, and the dark rich malt is very noticable. The sweetness from the black rapadura cane sugar is also a welcomed addition.

M- This drinks rather syrupy and leaves the mouth slightly coated with imperial stout goodness after every swallow.

O-Guanabara is a interesting take on a Russian Imperial Stout. It was less hoppy than I anticipated, and I enjoyed the addition of the cane sugar for sweetness. I have now tried three beers from Cervejaria Colorado: Bertho, Vixnu, and Guanabara. I have been extremely satisfied with their brews, and I will continue to look for them at the store. (919 characters)

Near room- temp 600 ml bottle into a stemmed tulip. Real Ale RIS tulip, actually. Fairly sure the best-by date is August 15, 2013.

Look- Deep brown-black with three fingers of loose off-white head. Good retention for the ABV- maybe too good, takes forever to fall. Minimal lacing.

Smell- Nougat and blackcurrant, fruitier and sweeter than expected. Cocoa and shortbread, light booze, some roasty aromas in the backdrop. Barleywine-esque.

Taste- Well, that's unique. Distinctly English-y maltiness, mild-moderate char, pronounced estery character. Raisin, brown sugar, black cherry, browned toast. Roasty bite to the finish coupled with bittersweet chocolate. Not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. Aftertaste lingers- light rye bread, cold-press coffee. Low bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full body, mellow carbonation. Smooth, chewy texture, full feel but finishes surprisingly clean. Mild warming on the back end, but not too boozy for 10%.

Overall- Snagged this 600 ml bottle for about $6 at a local chain grocery store, very, very respectable at that price and a very pleasant surprise. Interesting ester profile, not quite sure what to make of it, reminiscent of a barleywine-turned-stout. Definitely worth trying. Highly recommended- I'll be snagging a few more to set aside. (1,287 characters)

Pours an effervescent mahogany with a thumb of mocha colored head. Nice oily sheen, traces of head retention & lacing

S: Carob & coffee, dark fruit & licorice, boozeyness & oak

T: Follows the nose, plus much molasses , figgyness & dryness & charred grain up front. More dryness, figs, raisins, dark chocolate & charred grain & woody hops & more dark chocolate, carob & leafy hops as this warms, plus more molasses. Finishes dry, with booze burn, a touch of vanilla, oak, caramel, figs & caramel, plus leafy hops & figs

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, body thins out as this warms, a touch of boozey warmth as well

Super complex beer, pretty darn drinkable, spot on for the style. Not world-class, but knocking on the door. Both beers I've tried from these guys have impressed, will hope I can get more. Worth seeking out (831 characters)

Very stoked to find this at a local bar in Curitiba!

Pitch black, with a minimal brown head that dissipates to a thick ring.

Smells of anise, plum, raisin, chocolate, roasted malts, brown sugar, light coffee.

Tastes of brown sugar, caramel, high roast, chocolate, raisins, dates and pecans.

Full bodied, thick, chewy almost.

Impressive, I must say. I really hope I can get a bottle to go to bring back stateside... (419 characters)
