Colorado Guanabara brewed by Cervarjaria Colorado in Brazil


Colorado Guanabara Imperial Stout brewed by Cervarjaria Colorado imported by Artisanal Imports

This Brazilian Imperial Stout is named after the famous bay of the same name—the home of Rio de Janeiro—pictured on the label. Made with black rapadura sugar, a rough-and-ready form of cane sugar. It adds a treacly, molasses note to this stupendous Imperial Stout. Brewed with Colorado’s deft touch, Guanabara is splendidly integrated in overall flavor: hops, malt, sugar all come into balance with roasted notes, gentle bitterness and a nose redolent of figs, pomegranate syrup and a high note of resiny hops.

A beautiful match for wild game, well-matured cheeses, charcuterie and creme brule. Serve cool but not chilled for best, most explosive, flavor.
 

Colorado Guanabara Imperial Stout

       
Beer Review from Beer Advocate

Appearance - Big creamy mocha foam settles to a thin cap, leaving behind tons of lacing. Extremely dark brown body that is near-black and opaque.

Aroma - Big roast, licorice, and molasses, with dark chocolate, and something that is reminiscent of candi sugar I'm guessing that's the rapadura sugar? Well-hidden alcohol. Gets increasingly sweet as it warms up.

Taste - The taste is a bit mellower, with more chocolate, caramel, and other sweet flavors, and less of the anise and roast I initially perceived. Vaguely reminiscent of coffee cake with the roast, caramel, and chocolate flavors. Again, not much in the way of alcohol.

Mouthfeel - Big and sticky texture, with a hint of alcohol warmth by the end of the glass. Lightly roasty in the finish before revealing some lingering stickiness. Surprising moderate carbonation keeps things from getting too heavy.

Overall - A nice Imperial stout that blends American sweetness and European roast and anise flavors. I had no problem putting down a snifter on my own.

Cerverjaria Colorado History
Founded in 1995, Cerverjaria Colorado is named after it’s first brewing equipment, purchased on the used market. Marcelo Carneiro da Rocha, struggling for a name for his fledgling brewery, thought to himself “The equipment is from Colorado! A good name for a brewery!” Indeed, the brewery is Pan-American, with gear from Canada, The United States and Brazil.

As one of the original craft breweries in Brazil, Colorado prides itself in making delicious beers reflecting its Brazilian origins. All three of the beers sold in the US are brewed with native Brazilian ingredients for a completely original flavor. Despite the apparent familiar styles, you are in for a decidedly Brazilian experience!
