2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, very small brown head. Probably one of the best Portugese brews I had (not saying any of them were all that good). Aroma of faint chocolate and caramel, fairly smooth but not at all complex. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (330ml). Courtesy of ImperialJohn. Deep ruby pour, large frothy beige head. Lush, oily-malty aroma, slightly earthy, very dry. The taste is somewhat disappointing, weak nutty malt, dry and metallic-herbal, slightly harsh finish. Thin, slick body, very malty but astringent bitterness in the finish knocks it down a tad - just okay.
