2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is highly smoky, with tons of char and campfire. Flavour brings out tons of smoke upfront, like the smoke produced when BBQ’ing hot dogs. Dry, smoky and very simple. Weak stuff. Inoffensive, but no good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
450 yen Bottle, burnt coffee, licorice, umami, grape & chocolate in the aroma. The taste is good, chocolate with some roast coffee notes. The body is a bit thin & I feel it is somewhat rough around the edges. Overall though, a nice enough stout, it pairs nicely with vanilla ice cream.
