3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the newly opened World Beer Museum in Osaka. 650 yen for 300ml served in a stemmed glass with the breweries logo on it. It poured a lovely inky black with a tan head, was served too cold though. The aroma was pretty weak at first but as it warmed up you started to get more coffee notes over the sweet malty base. The flavor started off coffee, then chocolate malt with a burnt bitter chocolate finish. Quite nice to drink and one of the cheapest things on tap so pretty decent.
