600 ml bottle from Beertaste in Rio de Janeiro, on to the beer:

This beer is black at the top and cola colored towards the bottom of the glass. The white colored head is something to look at. There´s a lot of coffee in the aroma. It is surprising, because this beer does not list coffee as one of its ingredients. Roasted coffee, with chocolate fudge. Yum! The taste is equally yummy as the aroma, though the flavor proportions are different. Bittersweet chocolate and fudge lead the way here while the coffee takes a backseat. It has a very light, though it is not watery. The carbonation is low, though still present.

Impressive. This is what I want from my schwarz: a tasty, yet light enough beer I can kill in a session. Like the tripel, Falke´s black lager is worth keeping your eyes peeled for, though this one is far more affordable.

This lager beer, made with german pilsen malt which was partially toasted over direct fire, using a manual device originally made to toast coffee beans. The result is a partially roasted malt, giving to the beer notes from smoked to toasted. Thanks to this roasted grains, this notes are predominant for this beer, giving a sensation of drinking a dry stout, though it's actually a lager.
The colour is black with rubi reflexes. Excellent head formation and foam stability (they use nitrogen to complement natural carbonation).
Hop aroma and bitterness are not in evidence, but in this case the focus is on the maltiness and roasted flavors. This beer surprises everyone by its originality.
