3.48/5 rDev +0.3%
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.

2.79/5 rDev -19.6%
A: Black in color with a meager, fizzy head sitting on top for a brief period.
S: This could pass as your typical adjunct lager going on the aroma alone. Smells like a Bud Light or Coors basically.
T: Initial flavor is macro lager. This is followed by homemade red wine with a hint of roast on the finish. An interesting combination of flavors, at least.
M: Thin and mediocre feel. Fairly low on the carbonation.
O: About what I expected from an import.; potentially decent, but always has off-putting characteristics. At least the flavors brought in a little surprise that wasn't terribly bad.
