This Kirin Stout pours a thin black and is topped by a persistent cappuccino colored hear. Decent amount of lacing. The smell is very minimal. Whisps of coffee and chocolate with a metallic edge. The taste is light and bitter with a slight metallic finish. Hints of coffee. The mouthfeel is very light with a small amount of carbonation. Overall, this beer is ok but nothing special.

Delicious mainstream beer available at the same price of regular lagers. Worth the minor extra effort to track down.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Can. Black, big tan head. Nose is earthy coffee, sweat, roast. Flavour has cardboard and coffee upfront, the sweaty flavour kicks in and lasts though. Without that this would be a great stout. Pretty thin, high carb for the style.

Artichoke (66) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2013
One finger head, dark chocolate color with brown red tints in the light...fruit forward and sweet with light bitterness. Nice balance, not so complex, but something I would definitely session. Well done for a macro.

PotjeBier (1690) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2013
Backlog, canned in 2008. Very light beer, light bodied, more like a Schwarz than a stout. Seems bottom fermented to me as well. Not a bad beer though.

futre7 (135) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 23, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2013 I get chocolate, dark berries and a slightly burnt toast aroma on the nose Taste is dark malts with nut , toast, coffee and a cardboard grassy taste similar to the original Ichiban Shibori. The lacing is moderate (about half an inch) and fades after five minutes. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Solid effort from Kirin in the stoute/lager stakes.
