Bottle. Black pour with little tan head. Weak aromas of roasted malts. Taste is very sugary-sweet with little else. The body is somewhat oily with medium carbonation. Sour-grainy aftertaste. Not good.

Dobre i nawet najlepsze sposrod piw brazylijskich jakie testowalem. Schwarzbier tresciwy slodkawy ale nie nadmiernie jak czesto zdarza sie w tym stylu. Kolor dosc ciemny z czerwonymi refleksami. Piana srednia ale trwala znaczaca na szkle swa obecnosc. Koloru bezowego. Koncowka leciutko palona i prazona. Bylem zadowolony po degustazji egzotycznego piwa co zadko mi sie to zdaza

Cola black beer with a dark beige head. Sweet aroma, syrup, black sugar, malts. Sugary sweet and seems like it actually does contain added sugar. Dark bread, sugar, syrup. Watery body. No bitterness. Quite drinkable but canít appreciate the sugar.

From notes. 12 oz bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is pretty much black, with some ruby notes around the edges, and a light tan head with some decent clingy lace. Itís got a nice dark malt profile and smells like a light porter. There isnít a whole lot going on. The flavor is very similar. I like the chocolate presence thatís here beyond the maltiness. Unfortunately, thatís about it. The mouth feel is quite light and the hardly-there carbonation really emphasizes that. The aftertaste is just as quick, not complex, and forgettable

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Goût sucré trop prononcé. On ne sent pas vraiment le côté black beer. Bof.

Kosmokrator (457) - ITALY - APR 28, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Limpido color marrone con riflessi color cola e un velo poco persistente di schiuma beige. Aroma flebile con sentori maltati e nocciolati; gusto dolciastro con deboli note di cacao, caramello e frutta secca; corpo lieve, effervescenza gentile, struttura parzialmente acquosa. Sa veramente "di poco" ma in compenso non lascia lo spiacevole retrogusto "appiccicoso" tipico delle birre industriali di bassa lega... poco saporita quindi, ma dissetante e non spiacevole.

Almost black body, stable head. Aroma isnít great, bit roasty, some dusty toffee. Liquorice too, but I donít like it much. Taste... Even worse. Not sure what is wrong, perhaps it is me, but itís roasted sourness doesnít appeal to me at all. :-( Did not finish. (33cl bottle from Saveur BiŤre)

Famosa cerveja (que é mainstream mas tenta passar uma imagem de alternativa às "enlatadas" que têm no mercado nacional) brasileira. Stout muito, muito suave. Aparência adequada, com persistência de espuma clara mas com alguma formação de bolhas grandes, estilo refrigerante. Cor muito escura. Aroma suave de tosta, pendendo pro café carioca. Sabor de ligeiríssima tosta, de caramelo e "chafé". Não há qualquer amargor, não havendo qualquer carbonatação. Retrogosto amargo levemente. Tentei harmonizá-lá com Sandwich de hambúrguer, queijo e bacon. Não deu certo. Ela desapareceu... Ainda bem com não apagou o delicioso hambúrguer do América! Tentei ainda com frozen yogurt com calda de goiaba mas ela já tinha aquecido um pouco e o gosto de cerveja com aditivos em abundância apareceu. Não vale a pena perder o tempo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an extremely deep black color, topped with a generous dark beige head with nice retention. The aroma is very mild. All I could pick up was some malts and a tiny amount of roastiness. The taste starts neutral, it has a balanced body, and finishes with a decent bitterness and some roasty feel. The aftertaste is nicely bitter. Decent. Very,
