KansaiBeerLvrs (2068) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2014
5.5% on tap at Bungalow. It pours a dark cola black with ruby highlights and a light beige creamy looking head. A malty sweet aroma with roast coffee bean notes. Med-full bodied with a spritzy carbonation. The taste is flavorful roasted savory dark chocolate with a bit of bitterness. Easy drinking but quite satisfying. A solid stout.

Starts out big and boisterous with some big chocolate and roast flavours that then shifts down gear to a dryish medium bodied sipper. Interesting beast,

Wombata (453) - Kobe, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2014
Aroma: Charred, bitter grain, light cinnamonm black licorice, Palate: Fairly light-bodied style with firm carbonation Flavor: licorice, coffee, bitter chocolate. Comment: Medium-intense flavors. Not a rich, sweet style but quite dry. Served a bit on the cold side, but the aroma eventually came forth.

shoulderbroken (2026) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
Tap at Keyaki. Black colour, golden small head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, bit of smoke. As expected, but still nice. Taste similar, roasty, dark chocolate, some vanilla creaminess, little bite. Slight fruity sweetness too. Pretty good. Nothing unusual but everything you might want In a stout is here.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2008
Draught at the brewery. Pitch black with a nice creamy head. Sweet and sour fresh malt aroma. Creamy, good roasting, sweet-and-sour flavor, on the sweet side, with chocolate. A good sour edge, though. Dark chocolate, milk, not overly sweet. Great balance. Medium body, very crisp.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle from trade with TimE. Black, creamy brown head. High bitterness. Slightly over-roasted grains. I’m just not a big fan of dry stouts under 8%. Too dry.
