This is a very good take on Schwarzbier (black lager). The flavor is clearly bittersweet, somewhat like a stout, but without the heaviness typically associated with dark beers (even most dark lagers). This is very clean and drinkable with a pleasant roasted maltiness. Drinking 2-3 of these in a sitting wouldn't be a problem. Considering the beer's relative lightness, though, I'm not sure how well it would pair with most foods.

Hard to describe this. I can only think that this must have been a bad batch or the water to brew this in Brazil is so different than I am used to that it threw my pallet for a loop. I honestly equate this to Budweiser brewed with funky water. That was my immediate reaction. I will not get it again.

3.49/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Opaque deep brown, garnet highlights, with a frothy cappuccino head that lingers as a ring.

Nutty, lightly caramelized and toasted malt aroma, with a taste that's sweeter than expected. More caramel than nuts, and minimal roast. There's a slight metallic note. Carbonation is higher than I'd prefer, and it lacks roast for the style.

Tap, shaker.

Black from afar, but a hold to the light reveals clearer ruby at the edges. A head the color and consistency of latte foam.

Figgy. Up front, it's all fruit. Bitter and raisiny, like reduced wine. Earthy hop character, a touch of cocoa powder and toasted wheat bread. Very balanced in the finish, with just a touch of raisiny tang on the sides of the tongue. Clean and light. Brown sugar finish. Reminds of a Belgian Dubbel, almost.

Soft body, cotton balls, light. Moderate, prickly carbonation. Clears the palate after each sip, a street sweeper washing it away. Very easy to drink.

Not incredibly complex, but very drinkable. Would be good at a soccer match on a hot Brazilian day.

Serving type: on-tap
