How black can a beer get? This tests the limits.

This was a plesant surprise. Very Smoooove, with a sweetish chocolatey flavor. Maybe a touch thin on the finish, but all in all a pretty good beer.

This is a very weird/interesting brew that is somewhat true to its style. The aroma is of honeydew and cantaloupe with a touch of Belgian yeast. Silky mouthfeel seems somewhat watery for a dark beer, but manages to coat my throat. There is little hop presence, but the malt is refined and subtle. The finish is slightly roasted and dry. A must try for the true beer connoisseur. I never would’ve guessed this came from Brazil.

Had two over a period of time. Very impressed the first time, not so the next. Not sure if the "exotic" nature of having a Brazilian beer gave it more points the first time or not. Roasty, low carbonation (though I see that one rater said high?)Fairly pleasant brew, but I’m not the biggest stout fan.

I used to drink this beer alot but I got tired of it quickly. The appearance is eye catchingly BLACK. with a really thick head. It was very sweet and fruity.

For sopme reason, it does not taste at all what it looks like: a evry black beer. It is pretty tasteless and flat.

Very smooth all around. Perhaps too smooth for a beer. Some carbonation indeed would be a plus. Carmel flavor is nice, but feels too thin. I expected a little more depth with a dark color as it is. Either way, its a very drinkable beer and isn’t overpowering in flavor.

Is ’Exotic Brazil’ like a province of Brazil? I think this is the only schwarzbier I’ve had, so I don’t have much basis for comparison. Seemed well-balanced. Carbonation was a little high for my tastes, but that may be acceptable for the style. If I want a dark beer, I’d rather have a porter or stout.
