Bottle. Pours black with a reddish hue, and a lasting, fluffy light brown head. Aroma has lots of malts: Pilsner, roasted, slight caramel, slight pale ale. Slight coffee and licorice. A hint of chocolate malts as well. Taste is malty sweet, slight roasty bitter, watery and.. pretty mass produced pilsner-like.. Fairly high carbonation and a watery body.

Beautiful nougat colored and rich foam. Aroma is not very much, actually only slightly roasted malt. The taste is a bit like very dark bread, almost like pumpernickel. Palate is sweet and have a taste of a little English licorice, dark bitter chocolate and dark dried fruits. The finish is semi-dry to dry, and hop bitterness is weak and puts a little edge of sweetness. colui72 (989) - HONG KONG - SEP 6, 2015
Pours very dark brown with a very thin brown head. Plain aroma, only some mild roasted malts. Taste has caramel and dark malts. Light bodied, a bit sour. Not a stout. Just OK. Maris (1499) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 From a 330ml bottle on 26/8/2015. Pours a very dark brown with the smallest of heads. Has a moderate but quite distinct chocolate/caramel malt aroma. In the mouth, it’s sweet and malty, with lots of chocolate, finishing with a modest bitterness. The palate is slightly creamy and the carbonation average. Imo, this is much better than the ratings suggest. It’s not super complex but it’s quite tasty and eminently quaffable. Actually pretty good. Rhombic (130) - SPAIN - AUG 23, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 This is an unique beer on how the aromas give you rather great expectations, but both the palate and taste are a let down. Let’s be more structured for this review, though.~~~~
Bottle, 33cl. Pours flat to soft carbonation, no real outstanding head that disappears quickly. Dark appearance - artificial colouring. Taste is bland and homeopathic, pale lager-like but without any bitterness. Sweetish, but no complex development for a decent stout. Virtually no aftertaste either. Palate is definitely watery. I have seen a few reviews that say "oily", but it must be a bit placebo due to the appearance: I find it totally watery. ...which might not be so bad after all, since it makes it effectively drinkable, but the colour is misleading. Not really any character. Not a great one, but there sure are worse beers around.

Cervesa amb gustos torrats, no es noten en aroma i és massa aigualida.
Cerveza con sabores tostados, no se notan en aroma y es demasiado aguada. huineman (688) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 30, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2015 Pours darkest black with red tilts. Head is tan and persistent. Aroma is liquorice, blackberry and cola jelly. Taste is soft, creamy and with lively carbonation. Light finish with smoky hints. Nice portuguese beer. Hamirubi (587) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2015
33cl bottle in Lisboa. Not that dense, black brew with brownish small head. The aroma is weak with subtle caramel hints and maybe some chocolate. The taste is undiscussable: Not a stout but a sweet black ale. Refreshing, good to drink, sugary, water, mild mouth. Not bad for a highly commercialised ’Schwarzbier’. Tide (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Draught at British Bar Lisbon. Dark brown color, white head. Bitter taste with nuts, a bit of roasted malts, toast, caramel and a bit of chocolate. Bitter finish with nuts, a bit of chocolate and roasted malts. Decent stout.
