Every Japanese beer I’ve had in the last couple of years have been such exiting and often different treats. This lovely stout is a gorgeous chocolate and roasty bitter treat. I also got vanilla and quite a bit of salt from this. I want to go on a beer safari in Japan because of beers like this.

Bottle in Omen, Kyoto. Served in a wooden cup so judging appearance is tricky but the bottle was nice, the foam was off-white and the liquid suitably dark. Roasty and dry, lots of roasted barley and malt flavours, ash and coffee, not too much hop in there. Very drinkable, and goes surprisingly well with sabazushi!
