Brown with creamy golden head. Aroma is roasty, bit of stink, bit of spice, maybe leathery and bit of smoke. Taste more straightforward, choc-creamy, roasty malt, something weird too. Maybe bit of hoppy bitterness there too. Not bad, but probably won’t drink again.

Decent porter from a can in Japan. Clear brown color, small but long lasting head. Nice chocolate nose and good firm bitterness in the finish. Creamy texture and just a little bit sweet. It’s slightly metallic but that is my only complaint.

Can. Dark brown with a pretty, bubbly head. Roasty malt nose, with chocolate and light soy sauce. Dry, roasty flavor with some sweet chocolate, big bitterness. Body is a bit thin. Really dry, bitter finish. Interesting, decent.

I could probably just transpose any one of my other reviews on Echigo and say this has a bit more roast character to it, but that would be cheating. Not overly roasty, but full and rounded, safe and drinkable like most Echigo beers.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2012
Can from Circle K. Strong chocolate nose. Thick dark brown, translucent at edge, fat-bubble head. Big bitter initial, strong coffee; mid brings out sweetness and roast malt; finishi intensifies the bitterness and then slowly mellows to a slight metallic note. Medium body. Very heavy aroma and flavor. Somewhat light body for a porter. An interesting beer from this inconsistent brewery.
