3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Tap East, Stratford, London. Excellent appearance, an extremely deep ruby brown colour, with an appealing lasting tan head delivering good lacing. Initial dry acidity made way for rich chocolate, and blackcurrant and raisin fruits. Good body, average-soft carbonation, this was an enjoyable beer.

The aroma is dry. The taste is good but way too dry for my taste. I have some difficulty with dry stout. The aftertaste is left for a long while. Not impressed with the beer, I am but it did and drink anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Both smell as taste has a sweet and tangy tone with elements of roasted malt, sour smoke and some coffee. In the taste there is an interesting tint of salty seawater, which makes me think of Japanese food in the form of fish and seaweed (a funny thing when the beer comes from Japan). To bad that the taste in its entirety is fairly thin.
