KansaiBeerLvrs (1342) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2013
On tap at iBrew, 390 yen for a small. 5.5% it pours a dark reddish brown, black in the glass with a thin tan head. Nice roasty chocolate aroma. Thin to medium bodied, nice chocolate/cocoa powder with roasted notes. Tasty but a bit thin for a dark beer-probably Brimmer’s Best.

biirusaikou (422) - - SEP 29, 2013
Cocoa beans nose. Milky chocolate flavor, roasted cereals, light sweet finish. Quite drinkable for a porter, even though a bit one-dimensional.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 13, 2013
Botella in Obatake mura, Yamaguchi. Clear deep dark brown close to black colour, small beige head. Aroma of roasty malt and soem chocolate, mild and soft like. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Pleasant flavour of roasted malt with chocolate and bit dark fruit, mild soft bitterness for a porter. Quite nice despite it’s a bit thin.

Westkyoto77 (441) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 30, 2013
Draught at the Brimmer Beer Box. Roasted malts, nice hops coming through as well. Like other Brimmer beers, this is well balanced, quite satisfying. Restrained sweetness and velvety texture means this can be enjoyed all year round.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2012
dark brown color. Excellent chocolately and roasted malt nose. Chocolate brownies fill with nuts in the mouth. Off sweet. Lingering chocolate nuttiness. Superb. Really nice porter

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - DEC 15, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Soft roast, soft body. Moderately hoppy. Very much made for the japanese market. Some chocolate and coffee of course, though I prefer a roastier porter.

shoulderbroken (1723) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 28, 2012
Tap at Brimmer Beer Box. Dark chocolate brown, small golden creamy head. Aroma is chocolate, milky, bit of roast, touch of fruitiness in the background. Taste is more stouty, to start off, not really any trace of the fruit, lots of chocolate. Further down the fruit arrives, blackberries, plums maybe. Less creaminess. Quite smooth, and pretty nice. Touch of roast there too.
