COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heavily roasted black and chocolate malts are added to our Pale base malt to create a uniquely bitter and rich finish to our Stout. With a rich, coffee-like texture and a dry and smooth finish, it’s the perfect winter companion with any of our winter oyster dishes. And if that weren’t enough, it makes the perfect black and tan along with our Pale Ale.

Brewed in Japan... Pours back in color with a wonderful super foamy beige head that dissipates in a few minutes. Aroma of earth, cocoa, cereal and grains. Taste of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, mild smoke and bread. Mouthfeel is kind of prickly on the tongue at first then becomes rather smooth and very dry at the finish. Pretty interesting stuff !!!

Bottle shared by argo0 on 7/26/09: Pours a barely transparent blackish dark mahogany with a large frothy-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of mildly sweet roasty dark chocolate and a hint of toffee. Starts with average fullness and doughy dark caramely sweetness along with a roasty drier bittersweet finish. A pretty decent stout.

willblake (2653) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2009
20090903 Picked this up a couple months ago at State Line. Dark, opaque brown with lofty, slowly fading head of medium tan foam. Mild, simple stouty aromas with a breezy floral kick mid to end sip. Fair bodied throughout, but with fairly agressive eff. Stark roast, dusty, astringent especially at finish. Floral notes make me think Brett. Good enough I might even give it another shot.

A solid take on the style. Not going to knock you over in any way though. Dry stout, with medium bittering.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a frothy light beigish head. Nose is roasty, dry milk notes and malted milk balls. Palate is foamy and dry, almost chalky. Flavors are roasted malts, some chocolate notes, little bit of a yeast note. Finishes lightly bitter and pretty dry and chalky.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Brown colored liquid with a somewhat fizzy light tan head. I catch a bit of funk behind the dark toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Fairly thin in feel. As in the aroma the yeast has a relatively large influence in the flavor. Flavors of black malt, sour dough bread, and bitter chocolate. Fairly acidic. Not thick enough to sustain the bit bitterness. Some interesting and favorable roasted malt at times, but then there are other parts that distract, ie. bitterness, sourness, etc.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009 Bottle from the brewery. Pitch black with a tall tan head. Aroma of figs, cereals, roasted barley, some hops, molasses. Rich, dark, sweet, aroma. Rich flavor of dark fruits, roasted barley, thick rich grains, molasses, coffee, chocolate. Very complex and extremely well balanced. Dry overall but with lots of rich flavor and a good amount of sweetness, but not at all oversweet or cloying. Finish is dead dry, burnt with a touch of hops, dry, refreshing, light, a bit sour. A relatively light dry stout, but with very full flavor. Excellent.

Sampled @ GJBF Yokohama: Dar black, light anise and fruit, some astringency and sharp roasty notes. The flavor is clean, some mild roast, sharp alkali and some musky finishing notes. Meh.
