3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Mondial private imports.
Appearance : Pitch black with a small white-ish foamy and creamy head.
Aroma : Nice fruits with light caramel and malt. Nice fruits. Light coffee
Taste : Dark fruits, roasted malt and coffee. Finish has light hops and roasted malt with quite a lot of coffee.
Overall : Rather surprisingly decent. Light carbonatin. Quite tasty considering the low abv. The palate is a bit thin but not as much as you may expect from a 4.5% beer. Nice session beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A strange beer that cannot be summed up.
How: Bottle 600ml. Exact age unknown but consumed a few weeks after receiving it from a private import group
The look: Clear dark ruby topped by a medium beige head
In long: Strange but intriguing nose of chewing tobacco and wort. Taste is very soft. Very smooth caramel, and old cold coffee cup, some apples, cabbage, ripe berries, iced-tea, tobacco. Body is juicy and the carbonation felt like a lot of very soft big bubbles. A strange mess that is not offensive because it is not very tasty. I drank my 600ml bottle without any problem and I thought the beer was intriguing. But I don’t want another bottle. Another boring beer from Brazil. For any north-American the greatest mystery about Brazil is how do they manage to get all these hot girls to take off their top without beer?

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color dunkel with a small foamy head with OK retention and no lacing. Aroma of coffee and caramel is somewhat surprising but generally enjoyable. Taste is an interesting mix between some medium caramel malt with dry roasted aftertaste that concludes with medium dry coffee notes. Body is somewhat light with average carbonation. This was a bit surprising with more coffee and roasted malt that the style would suggest but very enjoyable nonetheless.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
600 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. 07OC10.
App.: Very deep mahogany with a fair light tan froth.
Aroma: A bit of grain/cereal, some slightly watery chocolate and black coffee, a touch ashen, some really weak, vague, tired fruitiness, a bit of a vegetal note, messy and weak.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: A touch watery, vague chocolate, fruitiness, black coffee, still an odd vegetal note, a bit ashen and dusty, still messy; off-dry with no bitterness and a wet ash, sweet malt finish.
This is a mess, but I was glad to have a Brazilian micro to rate.

A clear brown dunkel with a thin off white head. In aroma, chalky chocolate with nutty notes. In mouth, a light and boring dunkel slash lager with faint chocolates, watery body,more like a South American dark lager. Bottle at Mondial 2010.
