Bottle pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is vanilla with some chocolate. Taste is sweet - very sweet, with vanilla and chocolate, with a metallic flavor on the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation. There are some interesting flavors in there, but I can’t get past the vanilla and the odd sweetness.

330 ml bottle from Precce @ Nakameguro. Stout that is brewed with black cane sugar, interesting! Pours dark dark brown with a nice head that reduces into beautiful lacing. Aroma is thick roasted malt together with some caramel sweetness. Charred black bread. Taste is not as sweet as I dreaded - initial carbonation kick gets your tongue tingling, followed by roasted bread, coffee-caramel bitterness, ending up in a sweet aftertaste. Black sugar is difficult to spot, it is well balanced with some hop bitterness and malty bread. Mouthfeel is nice and not too watery. Well done!

shoulderbroken (1723) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle, can’t remember where from. Dark brown/black colour with huge golden bubbly head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate sweetness, bit of vanilla, bit of smoke too. Taste is good, quite spiky, lots of roast again, bit of bitterness, coffee maybe, less sweetness, but the vanilla is still there at the finish. The brown sugar is there too, but not in your face. Less sweet than I thought it would be from the name, but there is a lingering creaminess to it. Pretty nice, and have to say I seem to like most of the Sankt Gallen sweets beers.

Bottle bought on goodbeer.co.jp brought over by Steven and Mari. Pours a black hue with a large beige head. The aroma initially had some tartness, milky and chocolates. The flavor was a dry rich sugary chocolate mix, some metal and light tart fruit. Enjoyable. Full bodied.
