A totally unremarkable black beer. Slight smokey flavor, chocolate, etc. It’s not overly sweet, which is nice

superspak (2766) - Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, plum, fig, light char, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, plum, fig, light char, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Minimal roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, plum, fig light char, and roast/yeast earthiness. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a nice Schwarzbier style. All around good complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to drink. A fair bit fruity in the nose and taste, but not by an overwhelming amount. A nicely enjoyable offering.

John25 (628) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Draft. Very dark brown and ruby. Sweet licorice, red wine, light chocolate, banana. Very thin mouthfeel with pretty high carb. Complex and interesting but a little too weird and unbalanced.

PacNWDad (106) - Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2014
10/27/2014. 12 oz bottle purchased at Full Throttle Bottles, poured into an ale glass. Pours with a small amount of tan head, consistent bubble size. Leaves a decent amount of lace on the sides. Dark and opaque. Aromas of molasses and banana. Quite sweet, really very little hops, if any, is apparent. Medium carbonation, thin body, a little dry, short finish. My first beer from Brazil - pretty decent tasting.
