3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Yep, it’s a stout all right. Not oatmeal sweet. Not dry like Guinness. Very nicely done. Unlike a Yebisu "Stout", Baird’s really IS a stout. Quite bitter in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
360ml brown bottle. Pours deep dark brown with mahogany highlights. Great head - quite thick, creamy, longlasting, beige in colour. Nose has dark chocolate and a decent level of roasted malt. Very light hop note. Roasty malt in the mouth, some coffee and chocolate. Decent roasted malt bitterness and light hops in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Dry stouts do not often excite me, but this is quite enjoyable, would have no problem sessioning this.

[on tap at Popeye]
Vanilla and bubblegummy roasted barley aroma. Almost opaque, dark brown under a nitrogen foam cover. Nice oaky vanilly roast flavour with hazlenut and caramel accents. Also a little coffee and toastiness. Bitterness comes mostly from dark malts. Medium to full body with low carbonation and a not unpleasant, lingering malt bitterness.

This was great for the low ABV. I was expecting a guinness clone. What I got was a flavourful, big stout which I could have drunk all day. Lots of dark malty goodness. They done good here.

Bottle. Almost opaque deep brown liquid with small light tan head. Aroma of smoke, caramel, biscuit, light butter and light coffee. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of peat, smoke, caramel and light butter. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit smoky and also not that roasted.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Smooth chocolate roastiness with some coffee notes. Dark brown with a 1-cm light beige head. Creamy mild chocolate flavor. Pretty consistent from initial to finish, without much development in flavors. Thin-medium body. Had this years ago, and it wasn’t nearly this good. A very pleasant mild stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at the Harajuku taproom. Dark brown with small golden head. Aroma is soy sauce, roasty, bit of coffee, touch of smoke (and bacon). Taste is slightly creamy but mostly roasty bitterness. More of the savoury meat and soy sauce thing. Long lasting roasty finish. Bit of sweet malt hidden in there too. Nice and sessionable.
