DraftDodger (996) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2016
Olhão 15/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from Continente Modelo Supermarket. And what a bottle! Small and chubby with print directly on the bottle. By the way there is a slightly higher ABV of 5,2 % than posted here. Pours very dark brown with big light beige head. Very foamy upon pouring. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma of coffee, humid cellar and sweet toffee. Suprisingly lively carbonation and thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet with light bitterness. Aftertaste is medium long and bitter/sour. Quite light stout. Fairly interesting and lively at first but loses it’s fizz and becomes a bit flat after a while.

DeanF (2342) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
Found at a grocery store in Porto. Pours with okay head that disappears rather fast, lots of carbonation and a dark brown body that’s not too black. Coffee aroma propelled by carbonation. Flavour is roasted bread and coffee, smooth on the mouth and not too thin. A perfectly adequate stout but not exactly interesting.

jamestulloch (3284) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle (5.2% ABV) from Earth, Carvoeiro. Dark brown body with a massive beige head. Lively carbonation. Aroma of Dr Pepper, treacle and burnt sugar. Flavour of brown sugar and earth. Thin to medium body with a frothy texture. Ridiculously fizzy. A sweet, tasty beer which is hampered by the over carbonation.

750ml swing-top bottle from Baptista Supermarket, Luz, Portugal. Very dark brown-black in colour with ruby red highlights and a thick head of white foam. It has a rich chocolate and tart red fruity flavour, roasted coffee notes with a smooth, warming sherry-like finish. Very nice.
