Draught at Keyaki. Dark chocolate, orange, definitely some soy sauce, the hops seem to give it a kind of black ipa edge, ok finish with light boozy notes. Decent dark brew but feels quite overhyped to me, not exactly an exciting import.

Tap at Keyaki. Nose of cocoa, coffee, soy sauce. Black and a bit flat. Flavor is decent, cocoa, soy sauce. Nice but not that special.

Very smooth mouthfeel, with a strong "ripe" stoutness. Nice, but the aftertaste is a little harsh at first. After 30 minutes, it seems to improve as the tastebuds become accustomed. Thick and chewy, chocolatey, roasty, complex, hoppy. good one

Very strong cocoa, chocolate smell to it, intense bitter sweet chocolate, roasted bean taste is as strong as you can get. I taste notes of coffee, this really is a strong stout. Very good beer.

Black pour with a beige head and light lacing .... Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts and bakers cocoa with citrusy hop notes .... Taste is of licorice, roasted malts, bakers chocolate, chocolate malts and citrusy hops that lingered into the finish giving it a nice bitter bite ..... Mouthfeel is slick and oily .... Finish is dry, bitter and roasted with a lingering bitter bite

Rating #1447 - 21.01.2015 - Bottle from Co-op MacTaggart. Pours an opaque black, barelythere tan cap that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is very much cocoa, vanilla, a teensy bit roasty and earthy. Taste is a hint of coffee,chocolate and the roasted grain. Thick, frothy, but still quite rich in flavour. Mild creamy texture. Decent oatmeal stout, not sure why this classes in with Foreign Extra Stouts though.
