COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kurofune (means "Black Ships") was the word the Japanese used to describe the American gunboats that came to open Japan to western trade. Kurofone Porter is sleek and forceful, but leaves a winning bittersweet taste of chocolate and coffee on the tongue. "Do not resist the superior might; cunningly acquiesce, and embrace." Kampai!

danielecamo (836) - ITALY - AUG 26, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, schiuma beige fine e persistente. Aroma di cioccolato, latte condensato, caffè, vaniglia, leggera liquirizia. Al palato corpo medio, cosi come l’intesità dei sapori. Inizio dolciastro con vaniglia, latte e cioccolato seguito da una seconda parte con caffè, tostato e terroso che si allungano nel finale. Manca un pò di morbidezza e l’aroma è un pò corto anche se è una buona birra.

Crisp with a sweet finish. Not heavy. Paired well with a spicy sausage and squash.

Tejas (931) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle from Craft and Growler. Damn, this is good. Really well balanced. A little roasty, a little chocolatey and a little bitter. A dry palate that is a tad thin but that's being picky. I'd happily drink this again.
