2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark colour with a beige head that lasts nicely through the glass. The roasted malt flavour you’d expect from a stout is there, but is quite light, leaving it feel slightly watery. Hints of vanilla and caramel with a slightly annoying fruity twang in the aftertaste. Not great by the standards of a stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smooth, mild-mannered Portuguese stout. This would make a nice intro to stout for drinkers who think they’re too bitter and aggressive (er, stout, not the drinkers). This has nice balance - not too sweet, not too bitter. It looks good, but the brewer adds a colourant, so that’s scarcely surprising. It’s a deep stout brown with a 1cm tan head that laced but receded a bit quickly for the style. The aroma showed dry bitter chocolate and coffee liqueur. Fairly fizzy in the mouth, softening to a mild creamy finish. Bit overcarbonated. Flavourwise, it’s at the milder end of the stout scale. Sweet and malty, with faint chocolate and vanilla notes. Could use a bit more bitterness in the finish, but overall this is very drinkable. (33cl bottle, IBS, Perth)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A creamy but at the same time not so heavy beer. A dark beer for the not so cold days of the portuguese winter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was not a bad beer at all, but I can’t say I’ve had anything else from this brewery. Found it at Penafidelis, a Portuguese cafe around the square from Moeder Lambic in the Brussels neighborhood of Saint-Gilles. Poured a nearly impenetrable black with a tall, tan head. Faint, sweetish, roast-malt nose with some fruity notes. Lightly sweet flavor (again, those dark fruit notes) with a thin layer of dark-roast bitterness (weak, black coffee) that carries the finish. Thin for a stout, but thick for a dunkel. Average carbonation. Quaffable, in the end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark brown body with some light creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts. Caramel, coffee in flavor, roasted malts also. Light coffee finish. Drinkable, but not so powerful.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark body, medium tan head. Aroma has old coffee and some leather. Fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet roasty taste with some dark malts. This is so fizzy that it’s hard to pinpoint the flavours here - it could very well be some sort of Pepsi or Cola drink. I can detect some powdery cocoa in the finish if I try hard. Interesting choice of brand name here - when I think of the name "Super Bock" I can picture a bunch of old hobos sipping a 12% malt likka on a hot summer’s day...but definitely not a Schwarzbier from Portugal.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dark amber coloured beer with a small creamy head. Light sour, roasted aroma. Weak roasted taste with a hint of sourness. Light bitter finish. Both this one and the super bock are quite ok.
