Nice hoppy aroma. Dark roasty malt and caramel flavors. The big hop flavors work perfectly with the dark malts. Really great beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1592) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 22, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. It pours a rich ruby brown that looks somewhat stout like in the glass butappearance wise I’d say is closer to a Belgian dark ale like a Rochefort 8 or 10. The nose is soft chocolate & toffee with a citrusy hop presence - pretty good. The beer has a medium body & a somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. The taste is quite good, roasty, cacao paste, figs, bitter coffee grinds & playing with these malt flavors are some candy sweetness & citrusy hops. Pretty good but Belgians do it better.

This dark chocolate colored beer pours a thick tan head that lingers. It has a nutty aroma with a hint of burnt sugar. The taste is reminiscent of the same and with the rich malted barley and high IBU from the dry hops it is nutty, sweet, and bitter all at once. The alcohol is high enough that it really becomes prominent as the beer comes to room temperature, so drink this one quickly.
