KyotoLefty (6451) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2008
Bottle from the brewery. Pitch black with a very tall, fine, tan head. Creamy roasted aroma with lots of chocolate, a touch of coffee, nuts, and a touch of sweetness. Quite dry flavor, but very creamy, well burnt, chocolate, more coffee, still a touch of sweetness, and more hops than usual for the style. Very well balanced. Dry, burnt, and sweet, but not too much of any. Dry, hoppy finish. Long-lasting bitterness coming from both. Very interesting and pleasant, characterful dry stout. I really like that tinge of chocolaty sweetness behind a generally dry flavor.

TimE (3183) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2009
Had not tried this in a couple years and had it on New Years Eve at the Nakameguro Taproom. Seriously underrated brew. Great example of the style, with its modest ABV, dryness, dark chocolate, dark fruits character and just a hint of baked cake. Moderate bitterness on the end and deceptively full bodied for the ABV. Solid depth and balance through out. Superb.

jonno (2325) - JAPAN - JUN 29, 2009
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.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
330ml bottle pours almost black in color with a plentiful light brown head with good retention leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malty bitterness balanced with the malty sweetness and some hoppy bitter notes in the finish. Light to medium body and adequate carbonation. Although a little thin in the body, I really enjoyed the balance of flavors that this stout offered. Well done!!!

shoulderbroken (2026) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 16, 2012
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.

JorgeLee (1190) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
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!
