4/5  rDev +8.7%

330ml seved in a mug glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown color forming a medium, creamy and solid dark beige head. Great retention and some lingering lacings formed in the glass

S: Strong notes of roasted malts and dark fruits in the nose. Very earthy too

T: The upfront is sweet and fruity. The açaí gives it a delicious sweetness and fruitiness. and earthy notes that fits perfectly with the intense malt roastiness. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Perfect bitterness. Earthy hops profile

M: Medium body. Medium to low carbonation. Fruits and roast malts in the aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Big surprise. I was not expecting such a great Stout

On tap at the waterfront brewpub in Belem.
Opaque black body is covered by a creamy and very durable tan head. Excellent lacing.

The smell is a bit sour and weird, which I attribute to the acai.
Flavor: decent, with enough acai to noticeably alter the flavor but not so much as to dominate or mask the dark roasted malts. Could use a richer dark malt base.

Feel: smooth with near medium, soft carbonation.

O: interesting and presumably extra healthy.

355 ml bottle shipped to my residence courtesy of srbcurti. Thanks again my Paulista friend! A stout brewed with acai, from a brewery on the doorstep of one of Brazil's most exotic fruits. Let's see what I can do. On to the beer:

Its color is black like a stout with a hue of violet. I'm guessing those berries had something to do with that. Even more of a trip was seeing the head; solid sized and white with an obvious tint of violet! Stout and acai berries, which will dominate? If the nose offers a clue, it smells more like stout than berries. Solid dry roast and unsweetened chocolate with a kiss of acai berries. It's more appealing as a taste, starting off as a solid dry stout, before a gentle acai note brings a fruity and tart note. There's even a noticeable hop note which plays as the third element. The beer also has the strange aspect of "thickening" on the palate, starting off light before feeling like a hearty full bodied beer.

Success is achieved. It looks like Amazon Beer has found its niche for its take on traditional styles with the addition of indigenous fruit. Keep on brewing.

Deep black color with lots of caramel head with good retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate and with a subtle (ps. Thank you! And I like Açaí…) note of Açaí.
Nice flavor of roasted malts, espresso coffee, non-sweetened Açaí (that is why it is harder to feel it), and a good deal of earthy hops. Aftertaste is dry, bitter and with the residual toasted sensation.
Full body with good carbonation. Alcohol is completely hidden in its flavors. Açaí got a bit more intense in the last pours, so likely not only yeast was deposit on the bottom.
Beer with character. Along with IPA Cumaru, these are two well-crafted beers from Amazon Beer, and that is worth it to drink regularly besides just seek for an exotic experience, once the Açaí is not strong. So this is actually a good craft stout. Well worth it.
