shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2012
Tap at Popeye. Dark brown, small golden head, soon goes. Aroma, some roast, bit coffee, not so much hoppiness, just bitter from coffee. Taste initial hop hit, grassy hops, quite full on, some grapefruit too. Fades a but further down and get some fruitiness and something floral. Parma violet element with bitter dark choc. Not bad.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 24, 2010
Draft at Popeyes (Tokyo), a dark reddish brown. Big hoppy nose of citrus and pine. The malt is quite subdued, but adds some roastiness.. A decently bitter palate.

KyotoLefty (9403) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2010
Draught at Popeye. Very hoppy nose--American hops, with grass and citrus, also chocolate, caramel and a nice dark malt background. Very hoppy flavor with nice earthiness and roasty malts. Chocolate and coffee work with extreme bitterness. Good.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2009
On tap @ Popeye’s February 2009. Clear dark pour with practically no head. Hoppy aroma, pine but also liqorice and dark malts. Tastes like it smells burnt caramel, prune, tobacco. It strikes me that this could be something that Nøgne Ø could have brewed. Mild acidic aftertaste. Interesting and recommended!

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2009
Draught at Popeye, Tokyo. Very dark brown, no head. Grapefruity nose. Dryish with clean mouthfeel. Crystal malt barely covered in licorice with citric hops driving it towards a mid-bitter finish.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUN 14, 2008
Black colour with a very nice looking lilac brown head. Unexpectedly good flavour of licorice, anise, subtle sweetness and a very slightly sticky feeling. Unique and impressive. Seems like Baird makes their best brews exclusively for pubs (this and First Impact are brewed only for Popeye’s and Ushitora respectively).

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2008
On tap at Popeye, Tokyo. Almost black with a small tan head. Grapefruit hop aroma. Perfumy and grapefruity flavours with light roast. Well-carbonated with a full body. A great combination of flavours.
