Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Tap at copper’s ale in Tokyo. Dark pour with s nice mocha head. Nuts, spice, herb, cocoa, chocolate. Thin and lighter than expected body. Nice but a bit more flavor towards the finish would be nicer

Nocturne (1677) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Brimmer Beer Box, Tokyo. Brown with ruby hints. Short head and lacing. Rich cocoa, coffee and nutty notes. The taste is quite dry. For the style I think this is almost spot-on, although personally I’d appreciate a little more sweetness.

Draught at Brimmer Beer Box in Tokyo.
Pour is a brown mahogany with a creamy white head. Smells of nuts and caramel. Taste is milk chocolate, nuts and caramel. Fairly basic but still manages to be enjoyable.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4186) - 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 (2305) - - 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.
