33 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 03/2014
Aroma is sweetish with cocoa, milk chocolate and hints of hay. Flavour is slightly sweet with milk chocolate, some cocoa, lactic notes, licorice and roastiness. Finishes with ash. The lactic notes do not quite fit in but this is still rather nice to be a 4% ABV beer.

Mildly pleasant aroma of chocolate and nuts. Really dark, black colour. Where some are deep red this is pure black. Very flight had. Beige colour head. Tastes like liquid coffee chocolate. Not as strong as I would have thought. Bit too fizzy. First Japanese porter though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle cotteridge wines. Black colour coffee head low retention. Aroma is coffee chocolate. Taste is same slight sweetness mild bitterness. Medium thin body medium carbonated. Ok but lacks body and sweetness for me to be a good sweet stout.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Black and smooth. I would describe it as creamy rather than sweet. Plenty of body for its low strength. Another winner from this brewery. Impressive.
