3.05/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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!

3.28/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope website (£1.39):
Dark, opaque brown with a thin head that is tan coloured and bubbly.

Dark malts with some brown sugar and a sweetness & caramel. Roasted barley, coffee & dark malts follow with chocolate.

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.

2.56/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Dark brown with a ruby tinge when held to the light, lots of Coke like carbonation, a finger of deep brown almost ash tinged head.

S: Coffee, metallic, very light and somewhat watery.

T: Metallic, dark roasted malt note, liquorice finnish but all are very light and watered down. Hint of alcohol on the finnish.

M: Light watery body, heavily carbonated.

O: Cool bottle and name. I'm new to Portuguese beers looked pretty cool and gave the illusion of a ‘bock’ a style which I normally like. Disappointed in that it was very watery and had a metallic taste, even a downer for a Euro Dark Lager. Will go well with my steak though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Black color with a fluffy caramel head with a short retention and leaving some laces.
Malty and grainy aroma with caramel notes and a bit of chocolate.
Flavor of caramels, earthy hops, sugar with a hint of sour and chocolate. Very low on roasted notes. Doesn’t really have an aftertaste, it just fades away.
Light body with low carbonation.
A watery stout with an artificial sensation, rather a light dark lager

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a dark brown with red tinge, great-looking beige head. Retaining nicely; leaves some beautiful lace behind. Looks a treat.

Malty, grainy on the nose. Some dark fruit, chocolate, carob and a touch of cinnamon. Pretty decent but standard.

Grainy on the palate, with a cocoa puffs kind of character. Some dark fruit late-mid: plums and sultanas on there. A slight charry note and some nutmeg late. Not bad, but thin. Needs more body and more oomph on the palate. Tastes slightly underattenuated and/or watered-down.

One of the oddest beers I have had recently.

Super Bock Stout by name? hmm, try a sweetish, malty, light bodied, dark lager. What the mind thinks and what the taste buds contradict is quite astounding in this case. A dark pour (not easy to see in the dim light) and ok head retention, lacing thoughout the glass.

Served at a pleasant little Tapas Bar, called the Vintage Cafe, in the Rocks - not seen it anywhere else in Sydney. Served too cold, tho. having said that I had two and could quite easily have continued, so sessionable it is, even if no hops to balance out the sweet malts.

3.48/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Drank this from a curved glass. Contents poured from their 200mL bottle; as a result it's called the "mini Super Bock Stout" on the label.

Lovely dark color to the beer itself, a deep dark brown. Head is three fingers thick and quite fine when poured into a glass the slow, 45-degree-angle way. Foam isn't too lacey, but the head lingers.

Nose is kind of weak, but less reminiscent of acid compared to many of San Miguel's pilsner or light brews.

Mouthfeel is smooth, with moderate carbonation and a slight lingering malty aftertaste at the end. Very drinkable, rather light-bodied. Taste is mellow and caramelly with chocolate and grain notes.

Overall, Super Bock Stout is quite good. I agree that it's really more of a dark lager than a stout - I'm expecting a much more distinct, exotic, love-it-or-hate-it flavor/character from stouts, and this doesn't stray very far from the spirit of mass-produced lagers.
