Dry Stout beer style, black, notes of caramel, roasted aroma and with a nostalgic flavor combination of coffee, chocolate and black barley. Final proof crisp, dry and with a subtle bitterness. The Stout is a beer soft, medium bodied gives it a unique character.

33cl bottle drink at home. It pours a dark brown colour with a very large but quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is just roasted coffee and malts. Taste is roasted coffee, some raisins and dark fruits and toasted bread. It has a light body with low carbonation and a dry finish. It’s overall a very mediocre beer with a somewhat watery taste, but I can say that it still have some character.

Bottle from Algarve and Friends, Alvor. Dark red, fluffy head. Light body, some roasted grain, coffee. Very modest, I could have said watery. Try their other beers first.

Nice coffee aroma, but in the taste i think that it is a lot of smoked wood flavour.

camoes (210) - PORTUGAL - MAR 31, 2014
Review according to the BJCP 2008 guidelines. Aroma: very high leathery aroma with sulfury notes maybe due to oxidation or from problems in fermentation. no notes from the roasted malts are noticeable. Appearance: deep black with a nice creamy, persistent head with good lacing. Taste: roasted flavour with moderate-low bitterness with of-flavour. Palate: light body with medium-low carbonation. Overall: a problematic batch, mainly because of its pungent leatheary aroma.
