3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Ushi‐Tora, batch #02. Rated on 16.09.2011
Aroma has salty liquorice, hints of vegetables and some roastiness. Also hints of cocoa. Palate is a bit thin for an IS. Flavour has salty liquorice with some roastiness. Some hops and soy sauce also with hints of cocoa. Rather light for an IS. Also too salty and too low on roasted malt.

Draught at a special Ushitora event in Wachi. Aroma of licorice and coffee. Fruity flavor with lots of dried fruit, Belgian yeast spiciness, coffee, chocolate. Heavy and rich. A nice Belgian style stout. Probably would score better if not in the summertime.

On tap at Ushi-Tora. Black with a nice, beige head. Alcoholic, port-like aroma with hints of roast. Dark fruit and chocolate flavours, quite dry. Soft and full-bodied. Excellent.
