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."

This is stout that is no stout at all. Even for schwarzbier is too watery. But smells nice - aroma of coffee and roast, but weak.

Standard and a bit watery schwarzbier. Not very special, but good for a Portugese beer.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2013
Fra flaske, fra den lokale købmand i Mandrem, Goa. Brunlig sort med ok beige skum. Maltet duft af pumpernickel og Bassets vingummi. Kun meget let ristet, let krop. Karamel, let brændte figner i lage. Ok, men nærmere en schwartzbeer end en stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

spartakbarnsley (30) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 22, 2013
In Portugal and fed up of lager I decided to give this a whirl. Not a stout in any way shape or form, a black lager. Which is fine. Who wants to drink Guinness when it’s 30 degrees in the shade anyway?! A bit of burnt coffee, a bit of sweetness, not much else. Thin but still refreshing enough to be enjoyed in the roasting weather. An enjoyable alternative to the ubiquitous lagers of the algarve.

Not a stout at all. Expected a lot more of this one. Too bad. Black beer with some malts.

humlelala (1010) - DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
(20 cl bottle imported from Madeira) Pours dark brown with little tan head that recedes quickly leaving rings along the sides of the glass. Aroma is roasted malty with a touch of noble hops. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Flavour is balanced with an ascerbic edge. Decent but nothing special.

Scopey (7052) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle in Lisboa. It pours deep ruby with a thick beige head. The nose is soft roast, coffee grinds, toast and cocoa. The taste is watery, earth, toast, roasted malt, cocoa and coffee grinds with a dry finish. Light+ body and average carbonation. Rather thin and no great depth to it. So-so.

flying_pig (962) - SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2013
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope website (£1.39):
Dark malts with some brown sugar and a sweetness & caramel. Roasted barley, coffee & dark malts follow with chocolate.
Dark, opaque brown with a thin head that is tan coloured and bubbly.
Sweet and there is the sugar and some of the roasted malts from the nose. There is a little liquorice and some chocolate but again not a lot and it is rounded of with some roasted malts.
Sweet, medium in body with a bland and watered down feel somewhere around the middle. It’s not all bad though, the beer was easy to drink and is quite smooth too.

Started really well but whilst still drinkable, the taste didn’t fully back up the look or the smell of the beer. Mainly roasted malts, sweetness and some chocolate but it was a smooth and easy to drink offering so I won’t complain too much.

GoufCustom (843) - HONG KONG - OCT 10, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Clear opaque Cola black colour; Razor thin head and soapy beige foam which fades in 10 seconds; Minimal lacing and slight carbonation; Sweet aroma of light roasted malt, with caramel, slight burnt toffee, very light coffee, light cream, chocolate and faint grass; Taste of thin roasted malt, with light black coffee, nuts, faint toffee, hint of citrus and grass; Light body, watery palate; Taste profile is very light dose of non-sweet roast malt, coffee and nut, all in a watery body and hollow background; Hoppiness is hint of grass nose, faint citrus /grass taste, and low blow bitterness. Hollow finish; Wet after taste, very easy and watery to mouth.

Comments: This one is a thin and hollow Schwarz, being barebone in nose, taste and hops. Not even comparable to standard macros like Oettinger Schwarz. Really low end stuff, Coke Zero tastes better than this. Bleh!
