3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of beige head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with some hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt bitterness balanced with chocolate malty sweetness with very little hop presence. Body is a little thin for the style and carbonation is light. Would be an excellent stout if it had more fullness to the body, but still a very enjoyable brew.

Tap in El Nubichimo, Yokohama care of TimE. Black opaque with thin tan head. Nose is deep deep dark chocolate and then rosted grain, almost burnt notes and some milkiness. Taste is roasted grain, dark chocolate, and then coffee finish. Body is quite light though and not much trace of hop. Lovely choc though.

Keg, BeerFest Daisen, 23/09/11. Pitch with a good creamy tan collar. Coalsmoke and dark chocolate aroma, a little carob. Convincing ashiness, smoking toast, chocolate. Bittersweetness, balance. Would hold its own in England.

bottle someone shared at the Black Sunday BA Tasting in Houston. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is of soy sauce and smoke. Taste is of soy sauce and roast malts. Mouthfeel is super tingly. Strange.

I drank this from a bottle into a tulip at Local Option...The beer is light black ok tan head, nothing of note. The aroma and taste are both super, not a lot to draw from here. A little coffee buts its sweet. Not bad tasting, just kind of boring...The feel is terrible, super light, almost watery. Easy to drink, but almost pointless with so many better options.
