Brought back a bottle from Lisbon. Very mild. Little roast and mostly sweet grain and root beer/cola flavours. Not overly drinkable and fairly light bodied.

On-draught @ Cafe Santiago in Porto.

Dark bready taste with a blip of roasted barley. Sweet but appropriately attenuated. Balanced albeit simple. Medium-bodied, somewhat filling, smooth, wet, unrefreshing, and overcarbonated. Nice cohesion of flavour; this captures the conventions of the style with no ornamentation.

More depth of flavour and complexity are needed for this to really impress, but it's a nice simple dark brew. Some pungent roast and more vivid notes of caramel, nougat, et al. Would love it up.

I think there's a hint of something from the licorice family (e.g. fennel) in there, but it's reticent.

Probably my favourite of Super Bock's lineup.

C+ (3.13) / ABOVE AVERAGE

Where did this come from? Is it a stout, a bock, a porter, or a schwarzbier?
I have no answers to either of these questions.

The color is nearly black and the tan head thin. It sits on top with some pretty reasonable substance and lays down decent lacing.
This one presents lots of roasty notes with a bit of char, not the unpleasant kind at first but then going a little burnt. There's a metallic presence as well. The aroma has some notes of cream that don't quite follow in the flavor, though a hint of licorice is noticeable in both. Overall, if the bitter burnt note could be kept in check, it would be better. Surprisingly, it's not terrible.
The feel is a touch confusing, a little underdone and thin but dry to the point of feeling like concord grape and leaving a bit of a tingle. The char hits on the end somewhat.

This is a nice, dark European beer.... darker than most, a little sweet. One I definitely look for when in Portugal.

Much better than the lager. Nice head. Good flavor. Not the best beer I have ever had but it was good. If you want to try a Portuguese beer, try this one.

Fast-fading beige over viscous garnet-violet. 3.5
Ash, black grape and brown sugar on the nose. 3.75
Camp coffee, some smoke and licorice, char bite, no real hops. 3.5
Welch’s grape finish and dry finish.
Medium, round, chewy. 3.5

-- Falls between a dry Irish - light-bodied and char-heavy - and English stout - sweet and fruity - to end up nowhere. Sickly artificial quality to the sweetness, like certain macro Euro dark lagers. Not roasty enough for schwarz; not enough Munich for dunkel. Still, I’d take it if Sagres was the only alternative. 3.5
