Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Dark nut brown with rich, creamy, beige head. Very lightly roasty. Dry and really creamy with velvetty soft mouthfeel. Some pleasant, but very discrete, malt flavours are present if you concentrate hard enough. Slight salty finish. Different from other dark Brazilian beers I've tried, in that it is dry. Could certainly be more flavourful, but serves the purpose of washing down a pizza in the steaming city of São Paulo well.
