Actually it is not really a dark lager as announced by the brewer, nor a Schwarzbier as I classified here, it is a Brazilian Malzbier style. On the positive side it is a little less sweet than its peers, however it still has a strong artificial caramel flavor, not from its malt but by burned-sugar addtition.
Head is bege indicating the caramel addition.
More of a desert beer, with very low drinkability.

I have found better, but the more you go trying other beers, will doing more comparisons and selecting their favorite. The BPrincess is better than a Malzbier at lunchtime, but showed no further pretensions and watery; Caracu maybe even be better on a strict comparison between the two. The bottle is very beautiful and attractive.
