Straightforward beer with caramel, malt and slightly coffee taste. Thin body. Not bad

330cc bottle. Pour dark brown with tanned. Light body schwarzbeer with low bitterness. Nice malt and caramel aromas with a light roastyness. I have been drinking it for years and comparing it with the other ones in the market in Portugal, and it is still the best option to buy for the style appreciators.

cervmagpt (457) - PORTUGAL - NOV 17, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 4C - Schwarzbier). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L2617S43. AROMA: clean lager background with mild sweetness and roasted notes with almost burnt character. APPEARANCE: very dark color and almost opaque. dark ivory head with low retention. TASTE: light malt flavour with light roasted notes. low bitterness with an aftertaste that dries out through time. some residual sweetness. clean lager profile. PALATE: light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a schwarzbier that lacks body and some bitterness. it could also drop the food coloring.

Smooth and soft beer, with some notes of malt and caramel. Nice, but nothing special.

I drunk it a while ago. A dark beer with some caramel and coffee notes. Drinkable but not remarkable, but good for Portuguese standards.

Bottled 330ml. -from Jumbo Cascais. Brownish coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, light caramel nose. Light roasted malt, some light caramel and brown sugar with nutty notes in rather short finish. Pretty average.

Theydon_Bois (13535) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle in the hotel Cascais, from Jumbo Cascais, 12/09/13. Pours mahogony brown with a good light tan head that soon dissipates to a covering. Nose is toasted malts, brown sugar, grain, fruits. Taste is caramelised sugars, bready malts, woody tones, brown bread, nutty. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation with a touch of spritz, toasty bready finale. So so - good by Portugeuse standards!

McNeillR (1834) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Black with glint of ruby body, tan-ish head that lasted about ten seconds. Burnt toast and mircowaved chocolate nose. Very tinny/mettalic initial taste that isn’t shaken by a maltier middle and roast finish. Fairly poor.

Bottle, random grocers, Porto
