Light brown head. Dark brown color. Not much nose but the mouth has a nice sweet maltiness with good amount of roastiness. I detected some dark fruit and caramel notes. Modest acidity below the sweetness. Very approachable.

varanid99 (1035) - AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2016
Pours like cola, with a little beige head, quite fizzy. Roasted malt and a little liquorice on the nose. Taste is roast, a little sweet at first then almost a charcoal after-taste.

10.10.2015, 0,35l can @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of sour-ish boozy, weeds, grass, minerals, alcohol, dark malts, ripe banana, butterscotch, bubblegum. Taste is slightly dry malty, dark malts, weeds, butterscotch, paper, grass, dark sugar, licorice. Little bitterness, watery mouthfeel. Meh!

colui72 (677) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2015
Black with beige head, aroma of roasted malts and caramel, same as its taste that adds licorice. Thin body, low bitterness. Not memorable but an OK beer.

Can from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. A black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, chocolate, soy sauce. Pleasant.

slowrunner77 (10251) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
not too shabby. thin but well roasted aroma and flavor. can’t compare to the regular black as I had them too far apart and one on draft, but seem similar enough.

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Draft. Dark almost black pour with a finger of mocha head. Licorice, roast, malt, caramel. Medium body. Easy to drink but not impressed
