COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Devassa Negra é uma cerveja escura, produzida com uma seleção de maltes especiais que lhe dão um paladar marcante. É deliciosamente cremosa, possui amargor moderado e tem aroma que lembra.

ClubGonzo (4108) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle. My first American Dark Lager comes from Brazil! :-D Pours a near-black, red-hued brown body with a big foamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity dark malts, hints of black currants and caramel. Taste is sweet malts, hints of caramel and traces of coffee. A bit watery on the palate, but fairly drinkable. I was somehow expecting something a bit different from this genre (it reminds me a lot of Schwartzbier and I think I’d be hard pressed to separate the two styles) but it was rather boring despite its high drinkability. Kinda OK though.

Sevenlee (1351) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2011
Very dark ruby colour with a frothy/fizzy offwhite head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty. Taste is lightly roasted and has a slightly bitter aftertaste. Too straightforward, too watery, lacks complexity and I think it’s way too fizzy in the mouth. I expect more from a dark. Disappointing.

Bottle Garota de Itauna Saquarema (RJ) Pours near black with large off-white head. Odour faint, sweetish and malty. Initial sweetness with bitter aftertaste.

typical but smoother Brazilian dark lager ... . Ah! Yeah. It’s just we’re putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that’d be great. All right!

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle thanks to my bosses at home. Alround rating: Light roasty caramel character, overly carbonated, grassy light hay hop, dry and a bit boring.

Como todas cervejas da linha, ganham no aroma e na coloração, mas perdem no sabor.

danielyabu (1197) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - NOV 30, 2008
essa American Dark Lager brasileira é, na minha opinião, a mais limitada da linha Devassa. Sua espuma marrom-escura tem aparência inicial pequena e de reduzida longevidade. Apresenta virtualmente nenhuma formação de colarinho e seu corpo, marrom-escuro, é quase opaco. No aroma fareja-se a presença moderada de malte caramelo, notas suaves de café e ainda frutas secas, como uva-passa. O sabor inicial é levemente amargo, sensação esta que se torna moderada no final, este de curta duração. O paladar é formado de um corpo médio-leve, de textura aguada, forte carbonatação e final de sensação metálica. Nota-se a presença de um gosto bem oxidado e um pequeno azedume durante o gole, ambas características prejudicam sobremaneira a drinkability, que não é das melhores.

Bottle, 355 ml. R$ 4.00 (US$ 1.80) in Bompreço Iguatemi, Salvador, Brazil. Nothing special.

Goba (71) - BRAZIL - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle 0.355L. Dark red coloration, with lasting nice beige head. Faint malt and speciary aroma, sweet touch of cinnamon. Light roasted malt flavor, with light bitter aftertaste. Too much water. / Cor vinho escuro, espuma bege duradoura, boa. Aroma leve de malte e especiarias, com toque adocicado de canela. Sabor leve de malte torrado, retrogosto levemente amargo. Muita água.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2008
Dark brown, brief off-white head with no lace. Very sweet aroma, ill-defined, suggesting demerara sugar. Sweet caramel flavour, boxboard note in the finish. In the end too sweet and one-dimensional to return to. But thanks goes out to Dodo for lugging this all the way back from Brazil for me!
