3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Mata Bicho, Leiria. Black body, large dense nitro-like creamy light beige head. Nose is dark chocolate, mild coffee, cocoa and hints of grains and nuts. Taste is dark malts, chocolate, mild coffee and hints of bread and nuts. Light to medium creamy body, medium carbonation. Pretty decent for a Schwartzbier, but no winner all in all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A strangely refreshing toasted-nutty dark ale lacking body.
How: Tap at Museu da Cerveja, Lisbon Portugal.
The look: Clear dark brown body topped by a persistent small tan head.
In long: Nose is surprisingly decent considering the brand and low ratings, I noted brownies cake and walnuts along with light-color fruity notes. Body is very thin with a very active carbonation, typical macro-like mouthfeel. Taste is a letdown. There toasted nuts, lime, celery, mild acidity, no hops presence at all. Everything feels watered down. The beer is rather easy to drink but it is also uninteresting. And while I was drinking at Museu da Cerveja I witnessed something quite disturbing when I saw what, frankly, could only be described as someone enjoying a Portuguese beer.

Not a stout, despite what the title claims, but it did have some roasted malt flavour

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
I would call it "an almost good beer". :p
A: Pours a black color and a huge aired tan head that dissipates quickly leaving a small layer and some lacings
S: Roasted malts
T: Taste is disappointing. Too light and watery. Where’s the roasted malts bitterness? My suggestion to Super Bock is: Please remove some water from it
M: Quite light body and reasonable carbonation. Lack bitterness
D: Average. Too smooth for a beer claimed "Stout"

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 4C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L2617741. AROMA: faint roastiness aromas with some odd artificial aroma. low malt profile with no esters and no diacetyl. APPEARANCE: deep brown color and opaque. medium light brown head with average retention. TASTE: low roasted flavour that lingers into the finish. low bitterness and hop flavours. clean lager profile. finishes medium-dry. PALATE: light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: altough the label says "Stout", this is indeed an average Schwarzbier (a case of improper advertising?) that could loose the E150c.

300ml bottle (Tolly,Tartu)
Looks great, black with a huge dark tan head, fairly persistent. Doesn’t smell stout, this is a lager, right? Fairly nice though, sweetish roast. Some weirdness in taste initially, dodgy esters, but it settles down to a nice roast. Smoothish sweet palate. Gentle deep roast burnt finish. Nice schwarz.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Type "stout", noire. Mousse beige, disparaissant rapidement.
Arôme malté, toasté-chocolat. Mais peu caractéristique, beaucoup sur la douceur.
En bouche peu intéressante, identique aux arômes avec une très légère amertume. On ne décelle pas vraiment d’houblonnage. Carbonation moyenne, en bouche un peu watery, pas de corps pour ce genre de bière.
Mais peut être rafraichissante pour une stout.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33L bottle, BB 06.2015. Pours dark brown-black with light brown head. The head stays for a brief moment. Aroma is roast, malt, slightly metallic. Flavor is sweet, roast, coffee, grains, malt. Body is watery, carbonation is high. Overall: too sweet, but otherwise not bad.
