Drinkable but quite simple stout with a bit of coffee and sugar. Nice sweetish ending. Quaffy, drinkable, unininspiring.

The stout pours out in a deep dark black colour with steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste of mild coffee, chocolate, torf, woods, malt and nuts. Earthy finsih. Easy drinkable and quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, brought back from Portugal by a friend. Pours a black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma has not much going on, some roasted malts and caramel going on with a slightly fruity sauce on top. Flavor is mild roasty, sweet and has touches of licorice. Like the style definition of schwarzbier on this one, since it’s defintely not a stout as we know ’em. Short. light sweet aftertaste. Quite boring beer, but ok.

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.

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.

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.
