2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fast gone foxy-cream head, over deep dark red-brown beer. Perfumed chocolatey nose, like praliné or chocolate filling with spirit or liqueur; maybe some wood. Dry, near-woody flavour, but rather watery finish. Very dry malts, lots of water, near no roasted notes. Warming up, acquires syrupy sweetness. Bit sticky MF, medium bodied at best. Not very stout, and too sweet - even for a Dunkel.

Had this at a Portuguese restaurant in Fall River, MA. Not sure if it was expired or not, but it sure tastes like it. Very bitter, milky flavor with a little undertone of soy sauce. It was just an overall truly bad experience.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Black as a wizards sleeve but not as filled with tricks. Bit lacking of anything really interesting. Not terrible, drinkable but about as memorable as an erm thing. Bastards at my local bottle shop put it with the lovely hardcore strong stouts which fooled me into buying it. Childrens drink.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft in Portugal, pours dark black with a thin white head, aroma is malty, taste was sour and malty. Could have been a dirty line or old keg I suppose but this was pretty nasty stuff.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very dark-ruby coloured, stable mid-sized creamy tanned head. Sweetish dark- and toast-malty nose with some fruity overtones. Light to moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light bodied. Light sourish-fruity finish with a bitter touch in the aftertaste. O.K., not really exciting.............
