pours dark black like the picture of it over to the left. smells malty and has a good taste. taste rich and sort of sweet and tart. all in all, not a bad brew, just not a great one. my first schwarzbier, so im not too sure of what to say. i like it though.

I liked this beer. Nice dark color with little to no lacing. No noticeable aroma. Smooth and decent flavor. Would buy it again.

Ive had this once before, and for a dollar fifty it was a great deal so i got it again to rate it. Pours nice and black with a tan foamy head. Aroma is very malty with hints of chocolate. Taste is very sweet and rich with a almost carmel taste. Very smooth going down and leaves a little tart taste in your mouth. Great beer for a dollar fifty, got to love it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just a bit too sweet. The aroma is musty. The head is tan (rather than a brighter white). Other than that, it's great...

This beer poured extremely black, with a great tan head and lacing. Aromas of licorice, coffee, malt, and milk. Finished sweet, creamy, malty, and slightly tart.

Slightly sweet, roasted malt, earth, maybe some chocolate. Not the best, but not too shabby.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light tan head and very dark body. Chocolate and malty nose. Malty, vegetal, and chocolate flavor. Medium body. A fair beer all-around. Holds some nostalgia with me since I first sampled it in a Brazilian restaurant in D.C. while watching Brazil compete for the 1998 World Cup.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pitch black coloured body with a dense light brown head. Aroma of vegetables and some slight roasted quality. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong vegetable tastes and some nuttiness with a strong malt background. Aftertaste shows some of the malt with little else...very mild. Overall, a decent beer from Brazil, nice to try...but I probably wouldn't try this again. I had this beer from a bottle at a bar in the Market Square in Knxoville, Tennessee.

very smooth and silky, like sam smith's oatmeal sans taste. just kinda light on the flavor, of roasted malt, or some sort of 'interest' i was expecting from the supposed ancient and secret recipe. not bad, but not worth getting over something similar and better
