3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Super Bock Porter" it said on the bottle I had. Deep dark colour with a nice light brownish creamy head. Aroma is sweet with roasted malts and chocolate. Flavour of roasted maltiness, sweet caramel, chocolate and some coffee. Rather thin for a stout (porter).

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very dark-ruby coloured, stable mid-sized creamy tanned head. Sweetish dark- and toast-malty nose with some fruity overtones. Light to moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light bodied. Light sourish-fruity finish with a bitter touch in the aftertaste. O.K., not really exciting.............

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Lisboa. It pours deep ruby with a thick beige head. The nose is soft roast, coffee grinds, toast and cocoa. The taste is watery, earth, toast, roasted malt, cocoa and coffee grinds with a dry finish. Light+ body and average carbonation. Rather thin and no great depth to it. So-so.
