2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled from a supermarket in Albufeira, Portugal. Black appearance, very small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee and liquorice. Malty and dry flavor, liquorice, somewhat bitter finish. Quite thin mouthfeel. Feels like a ’light’ version of a schwarzbier.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tastes, smells and looks like a cheap, boring stout. Very dry and a bit of a smokey taste and smell but only slightly. Doubt I’ll have it again (Can tell its brewed by Heineken!)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is very mellow with notes of dark fruit (raisin), roasted notes, and a light nuts and/or bread crust hint. The beer is a rich, dark caramel brown hue with a tan, dense head that disappears quickly leaving only a light retention and lace. The taste is a dry, medium sweet and medium light bitter. The carbonation is soft and fuzzy for the lightly chewy, and sticky beer. The medium light body is flavored much like it smells with a zippy finish that has light root beer and licorice notes to it and light chocolate and caramel creeping in late. the aftertaste is light with notes of root beer, a touch of chocolate, and a light burnt note which mellows quickly and turns to fig.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky deep brown color, a reasonable off white head. Rich malt aroma, brown malt, a touch of cocoa. Very much a malt forward flavor. Gentle brown malt flavor, not roast or bitter, but rather smooth. On the light side of medium in body. A tart note in the finish, a slightly tangy note. Somewhere between a Newcastle Brown and a German Schwartzbier. Fairly nice beer.
