2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Weak aroma, not pleasant. Not much head. Very dark. Diacetyl all over, making it undrinkable in one of the bottles, and the other was in the limit of drinkability. Other than that, it is watery. I believe it may be ok on tap.
I hope they improve their beers, we desperately need good beers in Brazil!!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle in Rio de Janeiro. Dark chocolate body with a small beige head that fades quickly. Clove nose with roasted malt tones. Sweet approach in mouth, sultanas and chocolate. Hops and roasted malts appear down on the tongue leaving a lasting impression. Fizzy but not bubbly, enhances its taste without squezzing its refreshing side much needed down in the tropics. An interesting Dark Lager which deserves another try.

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Dark amber colour. Very malty aroma. Alittle bready but not too bad. Nice sweet flavor, short finish and a little watery, but infact a deasent overseas beer. I like it.
