DuffMan (7501) - 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!

Bottle: Sweet with notes of caramel and molasses, brown sugar. An OK brazilian beer.

joaobb (5) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUL 29, 2007 does not count
Pours black, decent head, slightly foamy when bottled, creamy when on tap. A very weak attempt at a dunkel. Extremely watered down, the toasted malt and coffee are barely perceptible. Smooth bitterness. Lacks personality.

Bottle. Black color with a nice beige head, aroma is some like sweety toasted malt. Flavor with some notes of coffee and toasted malt. Finish is bitter. Cerveja escura com espuma bege, aroma doce e malte torrado, sabor com notas de café e malt torrado também. Fica um gosto amargo na boca.

Negra Dark Ale
Draught at the brewpub

Dark brown color. Very light caramel and roasted malt, also very light dark malt sourness. More like a poor Dunkel than an Ale.

bgiamatei (317) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 5, 2007
Boa cerveja escura da Devassa, bem apresentável com sua garrafa estilizada. Alta fermentação. Espuma de boa formação, cor caramelo. Cheiro bem suave de malte torrado. Gosto támbém de malte torrado, com retrogosto amargo e com tons de caramelo. Coloração vinho escuro. Cerveja um pouco aguada, sem presença de residuos sólidos.

On tap at the Devassa bar in Leblon (I wish I had known about the Devassa Bar in Ipanema, it would have saved me a long trip). This dark lager is different from the other dark offerings from Brazilian brewers. This brew has none of the cloying sweetness of malzbier. It came to the table with a creamy brownish head that laced nicely down the glass. Slight roasty aroma. Fairly thinish for such a dark beer. It is just about right for the hot, tropical climate. You could drink a couple of these as they are not heavy.
