A creamy but at the same time not so heavy beer. A dark beer for the not so cold days of the portuguese winter.

As one could expect, it has absolutely nothing in common with stout beers. Howver, albeit watery, its definitely an enjoyable dunkel with cool roasted notes and coffee-like, creamy finsh. Nice surprise in Portugal.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Super dark brown, almost opaque with a small mocha head.
Cocoa nose, with some caramel, light roast and no hops.
Sweet caramel malt flavor, with some milk chocolate, lo bitterness and faint carob.
Light-med body, lacks hoppiness and excitement, but drinkable.

bottle almost black toasted malt aroma taste is a nice mix off toasted malt , chocolate , coffee . not as full bodied as many true stouts but a decent brew especially if you are on vacation and cannot escape the lousy local lager

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle in Porto. Pours reddish black with tiny beige head. Aroma is coffee, prune and dark chocolate. Taste is initial sweet then light bitter. Body is watery with soft carbonation. Finish is medium long with roasted and fruity notes. Better than most Portuguese beers, but calling this a stout is highly exaggerated.
