minihame2 (305) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 5, 2014
Black body and a nice thick tan head. Usual aroma with hints of caramel. Slick mouthfeel, little carbonation. Perhaps a bit too thin. Taste is pretty much what you’d except from a porter. Alright but nothing exceptional.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Yeasty nose, with subdued baker’s chocolate, and light fumes. Thick dark brown, fat creamy head, and great lacing. Mild but rich medium-dark chocolate, light soy sauce, raisins, dark bread. Some alc. warmth, too. Medium body, very creamy, and dry finish. Very mild flavors. Solid.

KyotoLefty (8121) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Nose is umami, caramel, soy. Black with a fine, tall head. Sweet and umami flavor, soy and caramel. Rather 1-dimesntional, and sweet, but tasty enough. Full and smooth.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - OCT 14, 2012
Listed at 7.7% - Baltic Porter, which it is not. A strongish poter, very light colour for the supposed style. Soft nose of honeycomb, chocolate and cinammon. In the mouth it is lush, though lacking in character. Some chocolate, a hint of dry berries and some waferlike dryness to the finish.

Draught at Harajuku Taproom. Dark brown - offwhite head. Roasted, chocolate, milkey, sweetness, light coffee, lots of chocolate, lactose, light dry notes. OK.

TimE (4340) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2009
This was much smoother the second time it was released - from the original batch - in 2009. Smooth body with touches of whiskey and chocolate. Definetely leaning towards a Baltic Porter. Well balanced. Slight warming finish. Yum.

Capa (2416) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Rating #600. Bottle at Bulldog’s in Tokyo. Poured deep brown with tantalizing ruby highlights. Toasted malts, cocoa, slight sourness, and a touch of milk. Thin body. Flavor is roasted, sour, light caramel malts, cocoa, and some dark fruit. A nice porter that is easily drinkable and refreshing. Better than the Kurofune; I wish they’d replace it with this one.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
Bottle at Tanakaya in Tokyo. Imperial porter? Very very bitter, and a little thinner than Baird’s Kurofune Porter. A special brew? Too bitter for me, yet a good effort. More red than brown.
