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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tiny beady brown bubbly head. Aroma is dark chocolate, saltwater, and alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel, moderately biting carbonation. Flavors are mostly chocolate with some roasted malt and coffee bean aspect. Body is full throughout, and rather light for a stout. Very refreshing palate. Initial maltiness and chocolate lead to a more bitter roast middle and it finishes bitter and numbing on the tongue. Bitterness is pronounced, alc flavor is low even cold and at 7abv. Overall easy drinking and pleasant bitter stout.

Cool find #2 at this izakaya spot in downtown Phoenix. Pours black with nose of chocolate and some salty sweetness tastes of chocolate, burnt malt, molasses, light brine, and sugary finish. Could use touch more carbonation but overall nice
