Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 4C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L2617741. AROMA: faint roastiness aromas with some odd artificial aroma. low malt profile with no esters and no diacetyl. APPEARANCE: deep brown color and opaque. medium light brown head with average retention. TASTE: low roasted flavour that lingers into the finish. low bitterness and hop flavours. clean lager profile. finishes medium-dry. PALATE: light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: altough the label says "Stout", this is indeed an average Schwarzbier (a case of improper advertising?) that could loose the E150c.

The cost-benefit ratio should be better there in Portugal (of course) than here, particularly because I think our Caracu less watery, although the aftertaste of Super Bock Stout is interesting. Has a certain sweetness (Stout?!).

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: The beer is a nice dark cola brown with some amber notes peeking in on the sides when held to light. The head is pure tan, foamy, and sticks around for a decent amount of time.

S: Some smokiness and some roasted malt but mostly stale coffee grounds or old coffee. Not too bad, but not great.

T: Malt character was a bit sweet and light. Some grassy hops peeking in there, but covered up by a sort of watery hot cocoa flavor. Seems a bit artificial in the taste.

Overall, ok for the price and where I found it. Good to try, but probably won't pick up again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Black body with a chunky beige head.

S: Smells Pilsener grainy but there's plenty of coffee and a bit of citrus.

T: Hmm, almost lager-like. Chocolaty coffee is the main flavour. There are some fruity hops but but also some cardboard. It has a cheap effervescence.

O: It's a cheap stout. Not much more to say.

330ml bottle. Lager glass. Bright brown color, reddish tints to the light & chill haze appearance. Tan froth & quickly dissipated creamy crown. Butiric & cardboard odors followed by caramel, toasted, slight floral & coffee notes. Husky & roasted upfront rounded by dried malt bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate to moderate high carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Slight metallic hues & low hoppiness linger into a dry bitter finish.

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 -18.2%
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
