Review: Sagres Cerveja Preta (Dark)

Sagres Cerveja Preta (Dark) from Sociedade Central de Cervejas
Rating: B-

Purchased at Taste in Kowloon Tong.
Pours black, but not quite opaque. Reasonably sized head, some lace. Smell is predominantly of roast. Wasn't sure what to expect - definitely not a doppelbock, a schwarzbier maybe? Roast at the front of the palate, but little else to back it up. Finishes dry. Reminiscent of Xingu - must be a Portugese speaking thing. Mouthfeel lighter than expected from a beer this color, carbonation fine. Drinkability is reasonable - goes down easy, but not much to commend itself flavor-wise.

Serving type: bottle
