Brewed with the oyster shells from Sanriku Hirotawan, Iwate Kura Beer has revived the beer style that has been brewed for a long time in UK. Oyster shells is well fermented, which gives depth to black beer. It is thick, with excellent refreshing aftertaste.

Cybercat (5174) - Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Pours opaque chocolate brown with a thick, though not long-lasting, tan head. Aroma offers chocolate, roast malt, coffee, molasses, and subtle oyster tones. Flavor takes the oyster and chocolate up a notch for a bold and enjoyable stout. Mouthfeel features firm, thick body if not a lot of fizz. Worth 8.00 for 330 ml? Maybe a wee bit overpriced (How do you say that in Japanese? My dad would probably know.) but still enjoyable.

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle from Mollie Stone’s in Belmont, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, some resiny molasses notes. Taste is roasted malts, beefy malts, umami, dark chocolate in there. The salt character comes through in the beefy / umami tones. Tangy at the end but thins quickly.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
On tap at Craft Beer Bar Marciero in Osaka. Murky deep brown, thick foam with great lace. Nose is heavy seaweed, savory. Awesome flavor with some real power, huge umami, acidic balance, oily chocolate base, small salt and savoriness. It’s really good.
