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.

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.

"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).
