4.5%ABV. Dry stout.  Poured out of the bottle a deep black brown with a thin tan head.  40ºSRM. The nose off the cap was of an espresso roast.  There were full-bodied smoky aromas coupled with good quality charcoal with a hint of mesquite.  Nose also has some nice ume sourness with a very dry and almost dessicated fruity character to it. There is a slight smoky umami character to the nose like kasuobushi.  Overarching all this a fruity sweetness like full ripe cherries. Mouthfeel is carbonated and light.  No syrupy cling.  There is charcoal which is reminiscent of Wakayama charcoal with smoke and bitter that co-exist in an ephemeral  balance without either asserting itself over the other.  There is a nice ume, fruity or sour roundness to the palate that allows the roasty flavors of coffee, peat and tobacco to come through very nicely. Finish is clean and abbreviated.   Overall, a very carefully crafted ale with none of the obviousness of a more continental brew.  A very congenial and enjoyable brew. Goes on Favorites List!

Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland.
Prawie czarne piwo o puszystej, beżowej pianie oraz słodkawym, czekoladowym aromacie. W smaku wytrawne, lekko wodniste, trochę kwaskowe z nutami czekoladowymi i kwaskowymi oraz palonym, goryczkowym finiszem.

belgis (330) - - SEP 23, 2015
Mild almost no aroma when stays in a glass for a while burnt candy pops out. Thick foam but it is not long lasting. Strangely boozy for 5% aftertaste disappointed me no real taste there but also not watery.

Flanfl (362) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - AUG 19, 2015
Black body, medium brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Similar flavors with some smoke. Light body and carbo. Medium dry roasted malt and chocolate notes. It's good but it would benefit of a bigger body and more complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
