Black hue. Tannish head. Licorice and burnt caramel nose. Very sweet all the way through. Vey thin, light bodied, moderate carbonation. Sweetened black coffee is about all i can say.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Small, thick brown head, lots of lace. Rather weak, slightly off aroma, but flavor is better. First impression is a mild porter. Weak carbonation, a bit light on the hops and less body than the appearance suggests, but still not too sweet, although it’s hard to pin down the flavors other than coffee. This is a good beer but not a great one.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2002
Canned and mine said 5% ABV. Opaque red brown under a mediun size, reasonably long lasting mid-brown head. Faint roasted malt , coffee and methanol aroma. Medium body with flat cola softdrink type palate. Moderately sweet and fruity roasted malt, coffee and mild bitter flavours. Weaker sweet finish and faint coffee aftertaste.

notalush (4833) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2002
I was drawn to this beer by its odd name, and the fact that I’d never had a beer from Brazil before. The aroma is surprisingly sweet, almost fruity, which is also what it present in the initial flavor. This flavor disipates quickly but leaves a nice, lingering coffee-ness on the tongue. Overall, however, this beer tastes like it’s supposed to be a stout, but they left certain things out. Nice, but not something I’ll spend two and change a bottle for ever again.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2002
I was surprised at how good this beer was. the Black brew is topped with a thick brown head that leaves plenty of lace. the aroma is strong with chocolate and coffee. the flavor is sweet and malty quickly turning chocolatey and coffee like.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Black as coal, no head (an old beer maybe?). Thin, watery, but a nice chocolate/coffee bitter flavor with a little port in the background. Not bad, not great.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2002
Sweet coffee and chocolate aroma. Deep brown, hint of red, medium cappuccino head. Liquorice, coffee, roasted malts flavour, nicely bitter, gets better as it warms up. Creamy, smooth, almost a sweet stout. A big bottle but tastey.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2002
Jet black color with a nice tan head. Very thin mouthfeel with little flavor. Some maltiness comes through, but no hops evident. This is an easy drinking lager, not bad at all.

Black color, large head. Medium bodied beer. Roasted malts, coffee-like flavor, a little too sweet tasting. Full flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth and a little thin. Aftertaste is dry and malty. Beer us a little too sweet, but a very refreshing beer.
