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

This beer pours a jet black colour with a nice frothy one finger cappicino laced head which leaves nice lacing,it has beautiful aromas of dark fruits and dark roasted chocolate/coffee malts,it has an average mouthfeel with a bittersweet coffee/choc taste,not a bad beer thats easy to drink.

Missed this last brew. Frankly, this was a palate-saver during a recent work trip to Portugal. I'd gone to water, lemonade, & port wine over Super Bock until I saw this promising dark brew. Dark? Had to try it.

It's dark, almost completely, maybe a bit of reddish haze around the edges. Smell is light malts, hint of coffee. And what the heck is a Dark Euro Lager, anyhow?

This is a pretty good brew. The lager flirts with whatever else is in here to create a light-drinking, not-very-dense, but very dark, brew. Splashes of roast, toast, coffee, chocolate, & a simple hop bite wrap up the package. Very smooth, & the thinner mouthfeel (due to it being a lager perhaps?) actually works for it in the Portugese heat.

Good brew, almost like a 'light' stout. Love to see something like this take hold in the States, & I might have to see out more of the style to see if it's this drinkable. And thank you, Super Bock Stout, for showing up in a beer wasteland & making my stay more comfortable. Salut!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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

Thanks to Beertruck for the generosity and the opportunity to try this brew!

A - Pours with a half-finger of light to medium head; pretty dark brown, nearing on black in color; ruby highlights around the edges

S - Ever so light roasted malts; dark fruit aromas; did I catch some spice in that?

T - Lightly roasted; some sweetish maltiness; a little bready

M - Thinner MF; a little slick, and some bubbly carbonation

D - Not bad drinking, really. More interesting than most in the dark Euro lager territory

Definitely not quite a stout, but more robust than a regular Euro Dark Lager.

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.

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.

Super Bock stout, 5%abv, 0.33cl bottle

A Dark, but deep ruby red when held to the light. Nice thick head that really lasted.4 

S Chocolatey roasted malt aroma, no hint of hops. 3 

T A little sweet, but not too much. Not as roasty as I was expecting, but clean and smooth. Some licorice/anise flavor, non-detectable hop presence. There is a dried fruit flavor at the finish and a little metallic. 3.5

M Medium to full body, feels thick on the tongue. Carbonation is good. 3.5 

D Drinkable, but the sweetness/fruit/anise is a bit much for me to want another. 3

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.
