Notes from 8/20/10; no freshness date

Pitch black pour, with tons of carbonation (at least 3 fingers of head without an aggressive pour).

Not getting much;out of the smell. Some faint sweet and roasted malts.

Has some of the earthy notes I like from a stout, along with a slight sourness that is really unappealing. I don't think it's infected, just some sour notes.

A bit too much carbonation for my liking; also, feels pretty thin (like all of their beers).

The sourness and high carbonation take away from drinkability. Just not much going for it.

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.

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?!).

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!

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.
