Pours a dark brown, almost black color, topped with an average sized tan colored head. Aroma is mild, malty and slightly roasty, perhaps a little chocolate note, but hardly. Taste is sweet, roasted malts with some caramel presence. Not a bad one to be fair.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dense black, tan sponge finger of a head. More grilled toast than roasted nose. Initial taste continues this, like a burnt bit of Naan bread soaked in dark malt. No real refreshment but not overpowering you with flavour from all corners. Mid-range of slight tang, some fruit. Finish dry, but not fully roasted. Smooth prune vibe going on, little cream coming through from the head.
Thank feck this was on tap at the festival, alongside the traditional Super Bock, for the same price. Worth the extra walk for a tap pouring it. Quenching enough when adjusted to and also sat well in a plastic pint glass in your hand for twice as long as the regular, quickly flattened effort. A wee place in my heart for this.

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

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost totally black with a short lived frothy brown head. Aroma is sweet and a little malty. Taste is sweet and roasty with a slight bitter finish. Not bad but it’s probably a stretch calling it a stout probably more a Dunkel. Overall not bad but lacks character.

Bottle. Black as a wizards sleeve but not as filled with tricks. Bit lacking of anything really interesting. Not terrible, drinkable but about as memorable as an erm thing. Bastards at my local bottle shop put it with the lovely hardcore strong stouts which fooled me into buying it. Childrens drink.
