sunevdj (3134) - Copenhagen OE, - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle at RBJG#2. Pours a hazy dark brown. Smells malty. Sweet and dry with aromas of chocolate. Hints of chalk. Dry, bitter finish. Medium bodied.

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 3, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Bottle at home. Dark brown black colour with small golden head. Aroma is unsurprisingly chocolatey, ovaltine, oaty, milkiness, kind of hint a hot chocolate. Taste is similar, high on the chocolate, bit of vanilla creaminess, slight hint of smoke or spice, and some dark fruit. Pretty straightforward, but at the same time pretty decent. Second time, much more fruity. Boozy kick too. Scores about right still though.

Westkyoto77 (504) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from Yamaoka. Coal-black with medium tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, rich malt, black sugar, touch of soy sauce. Not over chocolates like some Japanese ’valentine’ beers. Smooth palate with low carbonation and rounded finish. Quality.

AndySnow (2940) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at the RBJG 2 Grand Tasting, thanks TimE. Black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, malt. Smooth chocolate, fruit flavour.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1662) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle direct from the brewery via Rakuten. The ABV has changed as is now 6.5% It poured a dark brownish black with an ok head of lightly brown foam. The mouthfeel was light/thin for a stout but the flavor was nice and the beer was quite easy to drink. The aroma is one of bitter roasted chocolate with some mild coffee/caramel notes. It wasn’t all that sweet but was a well balanced chocolate beer. My wife liked it and she thought it wasn’t so strong so she was surprised when I said it was 6.5%.

abemorsten (2622) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2009
Aroma of ocean, oysters. Creamy in texture, the taste adds chocolate, coffee and sweet barbecue sauce. Full bodied and a long pleasant aftertaste including some bitterness. (Free sampler @ Bulldog in Ginza, Tokyo, February 2009.)

KyotoLefty (6186) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle from Yamaoka in Kyoto. Good woody aroma with lots of chocolate, some coffee and caramel. Flavor similar, though not quite as rich as the nose. Good chocolate and coffee, plus smoke, milk. Palate is a little thin for a stout. Generally very tasty, though.

Capa (1970) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 21, 2008
Dark brown with a firm, chocolate milk-colored head. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, milk. Lightly roasted malts, chocolate, some smoke, and milk. Finish is roasted malts, and bittersweet. Nice, smooth body. Not the most complex stout, but easily drinkable and rather tasty.

TimE (3108) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 18, 2007
Draft: Pitch black color, frothy brown head, dark chocolate nose. Not too strong. Silky smooth mouth with dark chocolate, whisky, cherries and a touch of nuttiness. Palate is very smooth, but lacking roasted character I wanted. Smooth chocolatey finish.
