Første gang jeg får et japansk øl på fat på Cardinal! M2 sep-14: en helt fantastisk god kaffearoma, og et flott beige skum som varer. Iflg beskrivelsen ligger der en omfattende prosess og spennende råvarer bak dette ølet, men smaken innfrir ikke, til det er den for tynn og kortvarig. Tørr avslutning.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, low beige head. Moderate carbonation (might change to Guinness gas tomorrow, 80% nitrogen and 20% carbondioxide). Moderate roasty aroma, distinct notes of cold brewed coffee. Dry flavour, the Japanese kokuto black sugar must have been consumed entirely by the yeast. Coffee notes again. Certainly not a sweet stout, and maybe a bit one-dimensional, but fair enough.
