More thna a bock it was like a black lager. Ncie taste and foam and interesting creamy texture. BlackHaddock (7233) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012
My last remaining beer I brought home from my holiday in Portugal earlier this year: 33cl well in date, poured @ home into a ’Gordons Gold’ thistle shaped glass.
Looked very impressive: but any dark brew looks good in the glass I choose to use. Huge foaming head of tan coloured bubbles sat on top of the dark brown/ruby body.
The nose and taste both have hints of chocolate and coffee: nothing strong or ’super’ about the flavours, but they are there if you sniff and sip deeply enough.
Not sure it would muster as a Stout here in the UK, more a black lager really in body depth and feel. It’s just about OK, I tried it while on holiday and obviously thought it good enough to fly home with me, so it must have something about it, I just can’t find whatever that something is anymore! satanda (439) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 25, 2012
Docela dobrý stout - sice mohl být trochu sušší, ale i tak na portugalské pivo výborné. Lahváč z Lisabonu. jackl (8029) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle found in an ethnic supermarket in Stockwell. The pour’s deep brown with a small off-white head. The nose is light nuts, some chocolate, general roasted malts aromas and hints of treacle. The taste is sweet nut pie, some roasted wood and bitter chocolate. Light, smooth finish. Watery, insubstantial body. Overall, pretty forgettable. maekchu (3847) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle from local Liquor Mountain. Lots of yeast and some coffee notes in nose. Dark, opaque, toast-brown head (caramel coloring is added). Syrupy-sweet mild coffee initial; mid is a slightly richer version of initial; final is much the same. Medium-heavy body. Rather mild and sweet; too fizzy for the style. Not really bad, but far from really good. Better than their other beers. Like a fair-to-middlin’ homebrew.

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. ThreeCats (891) - ISRAEL - OCT 6, 2012
Short-lived tan head over mostly opaque body with ruby highlights. Aroma of dark caramel, raisins, and roast. Taste of roast, burnt toast, and burnt sugar. Medium body, medium palate. zvikar (6087) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - SEP 25, 2012

A dark brown color with a thin beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and some coffee hints. Taste of coffee, mouthfeel is quite sweet bitterness.. Grzesiek79 (4276) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 18, 2012
Smaczne karmelowo-słodowe ciemne piwo. Mylnie nazwane Stout bo to raczej schwarzbier. Piana spora, a piwo bardzo ciemne. Słodkawy posmak ale nie nachalnie, na finiszu palony słód jest górą
