Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma and taste of dark roasted malts, toasted earthy notes, and a hint of saltiness. Thicker mouth, medium carbonation, decent oyster stout.

Tap at Yellow Ape, Osaka. Dark with ruby hints. Thin tan coloured head. Aroma quite light with baking chocolate notes. Taste is slick, roasty, chocolatey. Hint of red fruit in there too. Fine and quite drinkable, not too exciting though.

willisread (2041) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 3, 2015
Draft summer 2014 at Sapporo Craft Beer Forrest. Deep mahogany brown with a nice tan head. Roasted coffee and malt aroma present with a hint of arugula. Nice malt with an oily, rich mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. As it comes to room temperature ocean salt and slight citrus pith make their way out. Really solid beer.

Draught at Devil Craft in Tokyo
Pitch black with no head. Smells toasty and kind of oily with coffee notes. Taste is salty amidst an oily palate. Chocolate flavours abound. Pleasantly surprised by this and thoroughly enjoyed.
