COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I’m sorry! 普通のビールは、造りません。 ビールは、もっといろんな味や個性があっていい。『前略好きなんて聞いてないぜSORRY』には、そんあ意志を込めた。既存のビアスタイルやレシピにとらわれない。純粋に、自由に、自分たちが飲みたいビールを、季節ごとに味を変え造りあげる。 黒五インペリアルポーター。黒糖極深仕立て。 古米より伝わる五つの材料「黒五」と黒糖くを使用。黒豆きな粉の風味、黒胡麻の香ばしさ、黒糖のどっしりした甘み、客々がせめぎ合う。ビールを超えた「飲むデザート」ここに見参。

Thanks FatPhil! Opaque black color, small beige head. Toasted aroma is not so strong, has some licorice and coffee. Medium-bodied. A bit thin for the ABV. Toasted malty, cigar ashy, slightly medicinal flavor. Alcoholic finish, low bitterness. Fernet branca -like porter.

GenkiGonzo (363) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 28, 2014
Can from Yamaoka. Pours almost black with ruby hints, almost no head. Aroma has soy sauce, malts and some berries. Flavour is dominated by umami, with some nice raspberry and malt. Very rich with a long aftertaste.

Kauge (341) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2014
350 ml can from Drink Shop (€ 1,92); BB was due in April 2014 (!!!). They must have deep cellars to forget about something like this for such a long time. Pours dark brown - black in the glass - with a ruby-mahogany hue and a thick tan head. Nose is sweet molasses, roasted malts and coffee, cedar seeds, black rice, lactic... gets (milk) chocolaty as it warms. Taste chocolaty sweet with considerable roastiness, caramel, slightly ashy, kind of savoury, but mostly just sweet. Sweet, only slightly bitter finish. Palate soft and (oaty) smooth with mild carbonation, body mediumish. Overall I think there’s just too much going on in this beer - would love to try tuned down versions of it, with just a couple of all the quirky ingredients they have here, more pronouncedly. It may be somewhat messy, overly complex (?!?!) and too sweet but it’s still quite good I think.

jookos (2601) - FINLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Can@rööperifest. Black, with a small whiteish head. Dark, salty licorice, with a surprising berry infusion. Raspberries? Or cherry or something. Fullish body. Sort of nice texture. Firm, not overpowering. Soft milky finish. Decent. All right.

Aroma is malty with chocolate and cocoa. Flavour has soy sauce, licorice, alcohol, some cocoa and tobacco. Dry finish with some rising sweetness towards the aftertaste. A bit unusual porter at all its dryness and tobacco notes.

czlowiekwiadro (246) - POLAND - APR 15, 2014
wyraźny, kakaowo-alkoholowy zapach z lekką nutą wiśni. piana dość skąpa, ale daje radę. kolor ciemny, przejrzysty tylko w bardzo cienkim szkle, klarowny. w smaku spora słodycz, ale zamaskowana przez wyraźną paloność. lekki smak popiołu miesza się z kakaem i gorzką czekoladą. całkiem miła, umiarkowana goryczka.
