3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Taco Mac. Pours black with a medium, beige head. Strong malt notes of molasses, oats, and vanilla and some faint ester notes of bubblegum and dark fruits. The flavor mellow sweetness and no bitterness. Light to medium body. Silky, grainy, and fairly smooth in the finish.
This is a good, easy to drink, malty, and very interesting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good opaque pour w/ a retaining tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is a little funky - kind of sweet yet sour. The taste is relatively clean w/ a little bit of that odd sweet/sour combo & a touch of roastiness. Easily drinkable if nothing else!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was somewhat dark and a slight brown around the edges. The head was about a finger’s worth of white foaminess that dissipated within about thirty seconds. The lacing, well, it slides for the most part.
The smell didn’t really have much but what was there was a light roasty coffee aroma trying to run about but ends up coming across extremely light.
The taste was basically the same as the smell.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style.
Overall, I say this was a good Schwarzbier I could have again.

Black beer, small brown head. Nose is malts, light roast. Flavor is sweet chocolate-toffee notes with bready malts, mild bitterness and slight roast in the finish. Fizzy but almost sticky mouthfeel. Too sweet for me.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
a wonderful decadent Schwarzbier (light-bodied German black lager) brewed by an award winning Brazilian craft brewer. This is a more intense interpretation of the traditional Schwarzbier style with just a fleeting hint malt sweetness before the rich roasty-chocolaty flavour goes into a dry, hoppy clean finish. This is one of the best black lagers I’ve tasted – slightly rich without losing its light bodied character – like Kostritzer on steroids. If they were serving this in Brazilian sports bars during world cup, no doubt it made Brazil’s loss much more palatable.

Nice light brown top at first. Smells like ... astually has no special aroma, but tastest like a rootbeer, quite sweet. Overall it’s a nice black beer for summer, I think It would be weak in winter, but for a dark lager, this is a very pleasant beer at a very hot summer day.
