UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 12oz. bottle: This beer poured a very dark brown with a creamy, tan colored head. It has a sweet, malty nose, with some faint hints of chocolate and roastiness. A fairly sweet, malty taste. Typical lager smoothness to it. I get some roastiness in the aftertaste too. A little sweet for this style, but overall a decent brew. I was pleasantly surprised!

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 30, 2003
Poured black with a quickly evaporating tan head. Sweet and malty, aroma. Almost a candy apple scent. Very sweet flavor-- almost too sweet for me. Light, slightly roasted aftertaste.

A big surprise from Brazil, with a nice overall Porter-like taste. It has a hint of sweetness coupled with a slightly sour aftertaste. Very good overall (surprisingly).

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2003
Black in color with a small quickly disepating head. Smells like a roller rink or carpet. Medium to full body. Taste sweet and earthy. Taste like leather, horse saddle.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2003
A deep dark brown color with a light tan lacing head. The aroma is horse blanket (brets) and very earthy. The taste is again earthy with wood notes and some spices.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2003
Very rich and pleasant nose of fruit and toasted malt, additional aroma of resin, alcohol, smoke and oats after brew breathes some. Pours black with ruby highlights. The thick light brown head is very creamy, lasts for a long while and has fair lacing. The flavor is balanced and somewhat subtle with a slightly bitter finish. The medium to full bod is oily and soft, and the finish feels metallic.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2009 I imagine traveling down the Amazon deep into the heart of the rainforest to find the lost city of gold, El Dorado. After weeks of paddling down tributary’s and hiking in the forest and coming up empty on a dead end trail. Battling caiman, jaguars, anacondas, and the dreaded fer-de-lance. Just when I think I can go no further, my food is running out, I spy a glimmer of gold through the canopy of leaves in the sunset I stumble onto a brick road made of gold. In the center of the city is a magnificent gold pyramid. As I climb up the steps dreaming of the riches at the top I can barely contain myself. I collapse at the top and on a pedestal sits a bottle. Confused and disgusted I pick up the bottle and take a drink and all my weariness and hunger is washed away with a black elixir. Upon further sipping, enlightenment, that the treasure of El Dorado is this black gold.

An excellent beer that goes well with South American cuisine. Wonderful caramel taste with a satisfying biterness to offset its sweetness.
