3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows chocolate, soy sauce, roasted malt. Somehow both sweet and salty smelling...
More complexity shown in the flavours. Big cocoa and chocolate liqueur but also a bold roasted character with plastic notes.
Body seems a little watery.

This beer was really really good. Pours black with a nice sized khaki head. Excellent flavors of cocoa, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Smells mostly of roasted cocoa and coffee. Slightly sweet finish and oily mouthfeel. Impressive beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at ibrew Ginza. Dark brown, almost black. Aroma is soy sauce, bit of chocolate. Taste is similar but with a bit of cream in there too and a touch of fruitiness and spice. Not bad. I continue to be a sucker for Schwarzbiers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours almost black in color with a small beige head which leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and a hint of chocolate. Taste is malty sweet with a trace of chocolate and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Has medium body and light carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink, which made it enjoyable sipping around a campfire in a Washington state park, while on vacation.
