12oz, long neck bottle at Raku in DC. Poured a dark cola color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is light roast. Flavor is light chocolate, creamy malt notes. Interesting. A bit macro, thin, but sufficient for dinner.

Can 350ml (from Japan)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma is a bit ashy, cardboardish-papery. Medium-bodied. Toasted malty, licorice, caramel, bitterish aftertaste. Even with roastyness gives a bit Baltic Porterish feeling. Taste is ok, but aroma was bland.

330ml bottle from Yamaya Liquors. Pours dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Foam is not too rich but some lacing stays for longer. Aroma has roasted malt, is quite soft. Taste is soft as well, almost like a milk stout / kind of sweet and soft roast. Aftertaste is nice, has a lot of roast, bitter chocolate. Overall quite nice brew, on the sweeter side but quite enjoyable.

Can sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Naama. Black with a small light brown head. Pleasant aroma of roast, chocolate, a bit of coffee, slightly acidic and a light smoky touch. Bittersweet flavor, roast, with a smoky note, chocolate, a bit of coffee and a drier finish with some bitterness. Rounded mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan had on it. Nose is fairly roasty, with some dark fruit and licorice elements I usually associate with a Russian Imperial Stout. Taste is roasty and a bit more bitter than I usually prefer in a stout. Dry. OK, but nothing remarkable.
