Palme (3603) - Bergen, - OCT 9, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear dark brown one with a quickly sidesticking brown head. On the aroma I get a soft sweetness, some clear chocolate, soft licorice and not extremely much more to be honest. In taste itís leather and licorice mainly that dominates. A bit of sweetness as well as a tad of milk chocolate. Itís softly to average carbonated and it has a mild oily mouthfeel. It ends with a hint of roasted acidity. Interesting enough. 22.08.2012

Very disappointing. Dark brown, with creamy head. Lots of caramel, molasses and something sour. Watery body. Sweet finish. Not to repeat.

L: pours a very dark brown, with a little light getting through around the edges. Bubbly tan head. S: not getting much, some milky sweetness, stout malt notes. T: nothing extra coming through in the taste, pleasant basic stout qualities. Not as sweet as I thought it would be. F: quite full on the palate for 4% ABV. Some carbonation up front. O: I was expecting not to like this after reading some other reviews, actually this is a simple tasty stout that sits somewhere just below your Irish dry, like a Guinness draught. Canít complain.

Bottle to snifter. Appearance: very nice. Dark black, big white head that continually roils. Looks a little thin for a stout. Aroma: not much here, some caramel, brown sugar. Taste: vegetable, vinegar, plum, tar. Aftertaste is cardboard. Not good. Such a disappointment, since the Hitachino espresso stout is excellent. I am somewhat amazed at the way the head builds after the beer has settled. Iíll have to bust out an old fluid mechanics textbook someday to see if I can expain it.

Bottle. Small tan head with a final thin persistent layer. Clear very dark brown. Aroma is weak, roasted malt with sweetness and burnt fruits. Flavours are toasted malts,coffee, sligth dark fruit and cheesy out of place. Watery medium oily, medium body. Not very pleasant for me.

Pours dark brown with little beige head. A very sweet aroma. Almost acidic taste with little chocolate and roasted malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2981) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Pouring a deep reddish brown that settles black in the glass with a fizzy/foamy tan head. The nose is definitely sweet with that lacto character to it, savoury dark chocolate with hints of roastiness. Medium bodied with a scratchy carbonation rather than the velvety smoothness I am looking for. The taste is roasty, dark chocolate, sweet a touch of candied figs or plums. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bill Becker (538) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a pitch black with a 1 finger head of tan foam with plenty of sticky lacing. It smells milky, a bit on the sweet side, not a lot of firmness to the aromas. The taste starts off sweetish, has that Milk Stout flavour though it IS subdued because of the low abv. It finishes neutral taste wise and watery body wise. A true session ale here but Iím not leaning towards buying a lot more and sessioning.

Hkrivera (153) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - DEC 30, 2014
Labeled as sweet Stout but it is a Porter for sure. Too low on the Porter side category, but good coming from Japan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
