300ml bottle (exp. 03/2016), poured in a glass mug. Light copper, very little transparency, lots of a dense and lasting foam. A lot of alcohol on mouth, which makes it spicy, specially at the first sips; malty taste, notes of caramel that are best revealed at the last half of the glass, and very bitter since the beginning; caramel notes on aroma also, but less strong; medium to heavy body, but still with good drinkability.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange color forming a creamy and thin bubbled light yellow head. Good retention. Forms a lot of lingering and molasses lacings in the glass

S: Caramel and flowery hops. Strong notes of crystal malts, roasted malts, raisins, plums, grass, orange zest, grapefruit and pine. A bit boozy in the end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, crystal malts, roasted malts, grapefruit, raisins, dried plums, orange zest, grass and pine. From light sweet it becomes quite bitter. Strong hoppy bitter kick in the palate. Well applied 100 IBUs

M: Medium to heavy body. Good carbonation. Caramel and pine bittersweet aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Excellent quality double IPA made in Brazil. Reminded me the DFH 90 minute. One of the best Brazilian beers, no doubt

This is possibly the best beer made in Brazil. It's amazing how it can be so aggressive yet balanced and smooth. It's very bitter but still with a nice not overly sweet backbone. The alcohol is nowhere to be found and that's probably why it is called "Perigosa" (dangerous in English). An amazing Imperial IPA that can put many big names within the style to shame. A+

I believe this was first called Venenosa (poisonous) as opposed to Perigosa (Dangerous). Either way it fits the cap. Dark amber color, a bit hazy and with lots of thick head with a long, long retention and leaving marks.
Delicious fruity and citrusy aroma, notes of passion fruit, grapefruit and some lime.
His taste caught me off guard, not that its aroma was light but it did not anticipate what was coming up. Very intense flavor, resiny like, showing off its 125.1 IBUs. Hints of pine, cinnamon and honey, it should be good for softening a flu! Also, notes of oranges, grapefruit and over ripped pineapples.
Dry and quite bitter and prolonged aftertaste.
Full body with low carbonation and tiny bubbles. 9.2% ABV is timid among its hops, density and flavors.
This beer has been evolving and I did like the current state, it is now getting some differentiation and showing a character of its own. Again, well done Samuel.
