Bottle. Black with big whitish head. Not bad really, the best to I got in Madeira. Roasted coffee, sweet, caramel. medium body. Roasted finish D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 6, 2008
As one could expect, it has absolutely nothing in common with stout beers. Howver, albeit watery, its definitely an enjoyable dunkel with cool roasted notes and coffee-like, creamy finsh. Nice surprise in Portugal. txspartan (1072) - Berchem, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2011
Very charming dark beer with a nice roasted malt and caramel flavour. Might have more of this. kingstoni (2079) - FINLAND - JUN 26, 2012

More thna a bock it was like a black lager. Ncie taste and foam and interesting creamy texture. ruigo (2705) - PORTUGAL - FEB 10, 2013
A creamy but at the same time not so heavy beer. A dark beer for the not so cold days of the portuguese winter. flying_pig (1557) - SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2013
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope website (Ł1.39):spartakbarnsley (67) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 22, 2013
Dark malts with some brown sugar and a sweetness & caramel. Roasted barley, coffee & dark malts follow with chocolate.
Dark, opaque brown with a thin head that is tan coloured and bubbly.
Sweet and there is the sugar and some of the roasted malts from the nose. There is a little liquorice and some chocolate but again not a lot and it is rounded of with some roasted malts.
Sweet, medium in body with a bland and watered down feel somewhere around the middle. It’s not all bad though, the beer was easy to drink and is quite smooth too.
Started really well but whilst still drinkable, the taste didn’t fully back up the look or the smell of the beer. Mainly roasted malts, sweetness and some chocolate but it was a smooth and easy to drink offering so I won’t complain too much.
In Portugal and fed up of lager I decided to give this a whirl. Not a stout in any way shape or form, a black lager. Which is fine. Who wants to drink Guinness when it’s 30 degrees in the shade anyway?! A bit of burnt coffee, a bit of sweetness, not much else. Thin but still refreshing enough to be enjoyed in the roasting weather. An enjoyable alternative to the ubiquitous lagers of the algarve. tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 10, 2014
33cl greenish- brown bottle at Cidade de Goa’s Taverna lounge. Pours an opaque dark brown with lasting fine-bubble head. Slight molasses aroma with hint of vanilla. Light- to- medium body. Low carbonation. Even dry/sweet dark malt flavor balance. Dry finish. Hint of roasted character . An OK hot weather drink with stout-like character.
