Sweet coffee beans. Roasted malt, bitter coffee, smoke, dry finish. A bit too dry for my palate, am not much of a Guinness fan, but interesting in terms of roasted and smokey flavors.

330ml can as “Susukino Yubari Coal Mine Black Beer” bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin during the Hokkaido Food Fair Promotion.

Clear opaque cola-black colour; Half-finger head and beige foam which last for 1 minute; Small lacing and notable soft carbonation; Light aroma of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, cream, black coffee, smoke and straw; Light sweet taste of roast dark malt, black coffee, very light toffee and dark chocolate, nuts, cola, faint liquorices, light citrus and grassy hops; Mid to light body, slick but thin palate; Taste profile is dominated by light roasted malt in a pretty thin, nutty body, not watery but has some cola flashes here and there. Toffee and chocolate taste is also light but solid enough. Creaminess is only manifested in nose but not in taste; Hoppiness is very mild strawy nose, faint liquorice, feather light citrus grassy taste, and detectable bitterness for an empty finish; Slightly dry after taste, fairly easy to mouth.

Comments: This one is somewhere between a Schwarz and a Stout - it has a fairly decent, creamy stout-like aroma, yet its taste and body is pretty mono , flat and thin to stay in the Schwarz territory. I say this is slightly better than most Euro macro Schwarz so it’s worth a try.

Can. Huge light brown foamy head that mostly lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of roasted malt, light coffee and mild dark chocolate. Hint of sourness and overall roasted and very malty. Over the palate came again light roasted malt, cold coffee and hint of sweet chocolate and light notes of dried dark fruit. In my opinion more like a stout then a Schwarzbier. Medium body with a light carbonation and for a 5% alcohol some feeling texture. Light to moderated sweet flavor with some counter bitterness. Lingering cold coffee and sweet chocolate finish. Surprisingly tasty.

This is definitely a stout. Really surprised - this is top draw. Good body and some lovely flavours chocolate, moderate roast, some berries. Highly drinkable.

Draught at the brewpub. They call it a stout. I was not sure whether it was a stout or a schwarz. Tastes more like a dry stout. Dark black with a nice tan head. Burnt malt aroma with coffee. Very creamy flavor, strong roasting and coffee. Sweetish, light but with full flavor, good malt. Clean and flavorful.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2008
Extremely dark brown color. The nose is like cappacino with two spoons of sugar. Mouth is robust and sweet with lots of dark malts playing around. Very nice, save for the sweetness.

Tap @ Susukino taproom in Sapporo, the bartender said something about how this was brewed for Yabari, but it is made on site. So, it was a dark black color with tan head. Nice lacing, nose of bright roast, lots of toasty rye and chocolate. A nice roasty sweet flavor. Full and complex. This is not your typical dark lager, nearly into baltic porter territory with the light fruit and abrupt roastiness. Excellent.
