COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate malt; Sugar; Colour -E150C; Hops.
Launched in 2003.
"Super Bock Stout is a black beer, produced from special malts which give it a distinct flavour and aroma, and a long-lasting creamy head. It differs from the other black beers on the market because it is richer in extract, more full-bodied and with a more complex (almost fruity), not-so-roasted taste and aroma."

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2005
This was a welcome break in between tastings of some bland and boring ciders and is a well overdue new direction for this Portuguese brewer. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a tallboy glass. Deep, dark ruby-cola brown with a ½" fluffy tan head that persisted for the length and left a little lace. Rich, clean and inviting nose, cooking chocolate, powdered cocoa and molasses with a little aniseed. Quite dry in the mouth, delicate and smooth with lightly roasted grain and dusty cocoa powder, pasty yeast and a hint of burnt malt. Finish has a little length, malty and dry with a chocolaty hint that lingers between mouthfuls. A little light in body, it seemed a bit of a hybrid between a Munich Dunkel and an Irish Dry Stout, but without definition it was quite a nice and balanced, malty beer. A decent drop!!!

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2005
When I first tasted this, I was a bit shocked at what I got. After admiring the beautiful appearance and aroma, the taste struck me as dry almost vinegar-like. Not what I want from a stout.

oh6gdx (20621) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2005
Black opaque with brown foamy head. Vegetably malty aroma with weak hints of roast. Flavour of weak vegetably malt, along wit weak chocolate. Not very stouty in my opinion...

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2005
Bottled. Great looking pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is dark chocolate and coffee, the flavour is again loaded with chocolate and coffee. Overall a nice smooth stout.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2005
Black color; poor head. Some caramel aroma, more like a Dunkel. Also tastes like a typical Dunkel (forget the Stout!), with some caramel, roasted malt, residual sweetness, low bitterness. Poor.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2004
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Dark ruby, almost opaque color. Small coffee head. Aroma is toffee-sweet with some chocolate. Medium-bodied, chocolaty sweet, slightly roasted. Mouthfeel good be fuller. So far, the best Portuguese beer I’ve had.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2004
Bottled, drunk on location in Los Lobos, The Algarve, Portugal. </br> Opal black, with fizzy brown head. Lots of gas, more like larger then a straight stout, similar but darker then Toohey’s Old for those who know it. Roasted malt aroma with gaseous qualities.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2004
Light chocolat aroma. Dark redish brown color, light brown head, very nice lace. Sweet, light bitter to bitter in the end, roasted, coffee, smooth. Not a stout like I like them in winter (strong, full, heavily flavored) but a very nice one to drink even in summer.

omhper (19671) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2004
Bottled. Very dark brown with small brownish head. Sweet and bold, somewhat metallic. Mellow with notes of coffee. raw and industrial, but a hint of soft chocolatey malts is a redeeming feature.
