Lovely beer. Do not expect an explosion of flavours, but it is dry, it looks amazing, it is ashy on the taste buds and creamy on the palate (it would take a 5 for the creamy head, but the beer itself is rather thin). Lovely dry stout from Japan. Something that is called "dry" and actually good here.

Draught at Yebisu Museum. Almost black with,unsurprisingly, a creamy top. Very smooth, but mild taste.

Tap at Narita. Pours quite black with a big head. Not very much on the nose,perhaps some treacle and a whiff of coffee. Taste is full and indeed quite creamy, but the stout finishes rather thin and overly acidic. Actually, not a bad beer.

Mild chocolate nose. Very creamy indeed, low carbonation, mostly milk chocolate, cafe au lait, clean finish. Smooth drink but quite light and mild for a stout.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 On tap, at Arcadia in Osaka with my lunch set. It poured a nice black with a foamy tan head. A smooth creamy body revealed mild roast coffee & chocolate notes. It was pretty good, the highlight was the look & mouthfeel while the flavor was somewhat on the light side for a stout.

GIJOE (1057) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours cola brown, almost black, with a thick, foamy tan head. Thick curtains. Nose is almost lager-like. Not diggin' that. Taste is sweet; notes of coffee. A bit thin and not particularly like a stout. More of a porter or even a black lager. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Ginza Lion, Tokyo. Black colour with a beige head. Weak funky bad aroma. Flavour of burned malt.

September 1st, 2009 - The Yebisu Creamy Top appears to be one step too far in the crafting of the Yebisu Stout. That beer was already fine, and even good. Why go to the trouble of reworking a successful formula? One attraction seems to be a nitrogen pour. Once again, this is a deep and charred black brew, with rough and woodsy aromas of smoke, oak, and charcoal. And again, the palate is relatively light and soft. But where this beer falls short, either in recipe or in the choice of gaseous delivery, is flavor. This flavor profile feels flat and shallow, muted and even watery. It’s easier drinking, but that’s not what I look for in a stout.
