3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from supermarket in Albufeira, Portugal. Black appearance, small brown head. Malty nose, caramel, roasted, some liquorice. Very sweet flavor, lots of liquorice, some malts. Little bit bitter in finish. Seems like the Portugese equivalent of Dutch ’oud bruin’. I like it, though it seems closer to a sweet stout than a dunkel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Olhão 10/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from local minimarket. Black label telling me I am holding a stout. Pours opaque dark brown with off-white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma has caramel sweetness but nicely balanced bitter chocolate and coffee. Roasted dark malts. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is suprisingly light for something called a "Stout". Taste is sweet followed by medium bitterness. Aftertaste is short and sweet. Fine enough - but not much of a stout.

Came across this for 1 euro a bottle in Portuguese mini market at resort. Very pleasant all in all, the wife also liked it. A bit weak on body and not overly complex but a pleasant initial taste and on par with Guinness x x stout IMO.
