At Craft Beer Base, a can 280 yen to go and 560 in to drink in which is what I did. A very solid porter with some roast coffee notes and an inky black color with a burnt orange head of foam. Very nice value.

Can kindly shared by Roman, thank you! Aroma chocolate, light heavily roasted. Light light dark fruits. Quite tempting. Almost black colour. Taste is moderate burnt roastiness, light chocolate, light coffee. Simple, but tasty albeit a bit thin bodied. Very easily drinkable and a very good one overall. Finish of moderate duration, roasted notes, coffee.

12oz can. Rating #96. Real good porter, more stout like actually. Picked up a decent amount of hops in the aroma with a nice little bite when I tasted it. Good brew, I’m impressed with this brewery so far. (1901)

Found in Tokyo at Tokyu Department Store food hall in Shibuya neighborhood (see Places). A really roasty, bitter, charred black beer that’s a true porter. Opaque, with a thick body! Kanpai! Tasty.

Can. Black with a tan head that never quite gives up. Floral aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, molasses. Gently mouthfilling with little sweetness and a dry but barely bitter finish. Chocolate, mild roast, dark sugars, floral notes. Insubstantial but rather elegant.
