Can. Silky Yebisu was pretty good, so thought I'd give this one a burl. Sweet aromas brown sugar, soy sauce and malt. Mild carbonation. Not nearly as sticky as I'd expected, but not too watery either. Good balance of richness and taste. Good stuff.

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.

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.

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.

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.
