3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours nice dark with a deep red edge. A small fizzy beige head. Sweet aroma with a roasted edge and a feel of wet dog. Low carbonation. Flavour is surprisingly fruity with a light roasted edge - quite dry bitter at the end. Round but a touch thin.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2011 from Drinks of the World, Bern - clear very dark brown colour under a solid persistent dark beige foam; roasted aroma of black chocolate, medium-bodied, sweet and tart with a corny and pretty harsh finish where more chocolatey notes come up - cheap

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks RuneB for bringit this bottle home to me from Portugal.
Very dark brown, dark brown head too. smooth, but fluffy and grows smaller quite fast. still very nice for a macro stout.
aroma is faint roasted grains and licorice.
flavor is roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice, caramel. This is actually a pretty decent well tasting "low alc" stout. easily as good as some of the english ones. mild but still with ample roast, licorice and other flavors to keep you interested.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very dark brown to black-colored with a medium beige-light brown head. Malty aroma with toasted bread, caramel, some roastiness and coffee notes. Sweet caramelly flavor, somewhat sugary, with some vegetal notes, chocolate hints and light sourish touches. Finishes drier with a faint roasty note. Medium-bodied. OK.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the Eurostash II tasting on 12/12/09: This beer is a nearly opaque brown-black with a medium tan head that dissipates steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Roasted malt in the nose with notes of chocolate. Medium, smooth body with flavors of chocolate malt, caramel and a bit of sour fruit. The finish is roasty with a short malt aftertaste. Not sure if they were shooting for a Bock or a Stout, but it is just average overall.
