3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a black colour with just a little bit of brown head. A slightly sweet smell, although not particularly strong. The taste has initial notes of coffee followed by some bitter, slightly sour notes and then a sweet, malty aftertaste. It’s not particularly full of flavour, considering the style, but it’s still quite pleasant. I could definitely drink it all night.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 Jan, 2007330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A pasteurised black lager with tingly, but not assertive fizz. Taste and mouthfeel are fairly flat, more of caramel flavouring than of decent malts, but there’s some cheap, buttery chocolate notes and a touch now and again of bitter chocolate. All in all though it tastes of what it clearly is - a cheap lager with colouring and a touch of dark malts. There’s an initial flavour of dark things, but it fades quickly, there’s a hint of red berry fruit, a metallic, watery swoop, and the thing is gone like a cheap lager. I think the regular pale Super Bock has more character and a more pleasant taste than this. But it’s fairly drinkable. [2.3]
August, 2007 330ml bottle from a Portuguese shop in Ladbroke Grove. Nice aroma of chocolate, though there’s glue and warm vegetable spread as well. Creamy milk stout type mouth feel. It’s a pleasant caramel flavoured beer, with a finish like a cheap smudged lager. This could easy pass for an ale - make it slightly sweeter and it could pass for a milk stout. Drinkable, but lacking in character. [2.4]
