Impressed by this beer. Pours a dark brown color with a tan head, which made me think this was close to a porter or a stout. Roasted malt aroma and some chocolate as well. But the taste was sooo smooth! Suprised me quite a bit. Flavorful as well. I liked this...very impressive and a must try!

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Quickly becoming one of my fav beers. Rich yet not overpowering. sweet but not syrupy. In a word a "clean" brew.

Very interesting beer. I'm not sure where they put the anise, but I couldn't find it. Chocolatey aroma, without being too roasted. Milky smooth taste with very little bitterness, this beer surprised me when I first had it. Creamy, nutty finish that ended surprisingly clean considering the milkiness.

Bottled. Reddish black with rich beigre head. Odd cork aroma. Mild, sweet and velvetty with spun sugar and a pleasant mouthfeel.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2003
This beer, the labeling and such, smacks of a contrived beer made for the non-Brazilian market. Aroma is dry, almost smoked roasted malt. Opaque body with light brown head; excellent lace. Flavor is sweet, which is unexpected from the dry nose. Hints of milk chocolate and caramel. Flavorful, although a little too sweet for my palate. Speaking of palate, it has a nice overall mouthfeel, is easy to drink and has a moderate bite at the finish. Overall, just a little too sweet for my tastes and probably too sweet for the Schwarzbier style, but of reasonable quality. Thanks to Slikwily for sending this on; my first rated Brazilian beer!

egajdzis (5302) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Poured a dark amber black color with a small bubbly head that quickly fizzled away. Sweet malty aroma, slight hint of nuts as well in the aroma. Some cardboard as well? Sweet chocolate, caramel, mocha, toffee? taste. Sweet and chewy, with a carbonated prickliness on the tongue.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Not sure what to expect from a schwarzbier. Plenty of malt but it seemed undeveloped. It is, indeed, sweet, but no flavors absolutely stand out. I didn't find any anise flavor, thank God. A little nutty. Somewhat thin. Clean swallow. Interesting.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Bottle. Poured used motor oil black with a moderate brown head - I gotta love the appearance of this Brazilian beauty. Aroma is sultry, sweet and nutty with hints of molasses. Flavor is sweet with a surprising amount of hop bitterness and some vinegar in the finish. Medium body with creamy carbonation. A nice surprise of a beer.

This beer truley is black. It is very a very unique beer in the fact that it is full-bodied, but it goes down extremly smooth. I drink this beer whenever i can get it.

Indra with the hook up on the Xingu, Thank You again for the fantastic trade we put together!
A bizarre and secular brew, A lovely and exotic beer to mach its countries exquisite Brazilian females. Pours as the label states, a "Black Beer," decent toffee colored head leaves behind a substantial ring of lacing. The aroma and flavor are a bit like cider, light notes of vinegar, apple juice, toffee, cranberries, with mentions of chocolate malts. Finish is dry and bitter, very unique and exciting beer, again I find suggestions of cider. Recommended!
