Sweet coffee and bitter chocolate on the nose. Pours black with a beige head. Bitter coffee notes upfront with roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate. The beer is bitter but finishes with a nice sweetness.

에치고 브루어리 - 에치고 스타우트 7% ABV 짙은 비터 초콜릿,시큰하& 혓뿌리를 저미는 산미,비강을 도는 몰트의 단내로 끝나는 괜찮은 맥주..일뻔 했지만,유통과& 문제가 있었는지 맥주가 쇠냄새에 절어있다. 냉장 탑차의 유통과 냉장보관이 당연시 되며 재활용지수가 낮은 미국에서는 캔에 고급 맥주를 담는 시도를 서슴없이 할 수 있지만,그외의 국가에서 캔은 여전히 위험부담이 높은 저장용기다. 역시 최고의 맥주 저장용기는 딜레리움 트레멘스 같은 도자기 병인걸까 https://twitte

Garry_Evans (57) - HONG KONG - MAY 13, 2015
350ml can from supermarket in Oita. A nice balanced stout, very drinkable. Pours almost pitch black with short-lived beige head. Aroma of molasses, dark chocolate, almost marmite. Taste is good balance of sweet dark chocolate with some bitterness and medium longlasting toffee. Medium carbonation. Well made, drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (612) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 7, 2015
Can from Food & Company in Gakugei daigaku. Drank straight from the can. Nice light roasted malt and a touch of lemon in the nose. Body is a little thin and mouthfeel starts off creamy but then spins out of control into watery territory. Palate is well-balanced without being too sweet. Malty character present but a bit too light. Slight hoppy finish with a bit of sour tang in there as well. Dry and bitter finish. Not a bad effort.

Can from Citysuper on the 6X to Repulse Bay. Very roasty aroma - some chocolate and coffee. Taste is rich roasted stout flavor with not much bitterness. Palate is rich but with good amount of carbonation. Very smooth. Better than expected.

Pours black with a thin tan head, typical stout look. Roasty and malty aroma, not too strong. Very soft taste, mild bitterness. Rounded maltyness towards the end. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery. Decent but pretty much average stout.
