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

Bottle purchased from Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a basically opaque very dark brown, almost black, with a quarter inch small head, and not much lacing down the glass.

Smells kind of faint, a bit of chocolate and roasted malt.

The taste is stronger, and better. Some roasted malt, distinct lager-ish yeast flavors, bite of carbonation, some slight nuttiness, and chocolate.

Light bodied, with high carbonation. Fairly drinkable if slightly forgettable.

This one's just ok, it's good for a Brazilian beer, but there are tons of better black lagers out there.
