3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque dark brown-black, with an extremely pillowy tan head. In fact, the frothiness of the head and it’s utter hugeness may be the most prominent aspect of the beer’s appearance. Aroma is mainly of roasted malts, with strong chocolate overtones. The malts completely dominate the beer’s aroma. Taste is of toasted malts, with a chocolate flavor that almost matches the aroma. Some hops are discernible, but they are very much in the background. This beer is very sensitive to temperature, and taste changes as the beer warms a bit--improves. Mouthfeel is just a bit disappointing. The beer pours thick, but it tastes thin. I expected more body.

Cask @ Ushi Tora. Looks great, nice and black with a bubbly cask head. Has a chocolatey, roasty nose. Palate is complex dark sugars and smokiness, hints of dark chocolate. Good body. Top porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma, chocolate, with a rich chocolate flavour. Full richness like a mud cake, with some light metallic hop in the finish, notes of coffee and citrus. It’s a touch raspy, where a more rounded gentle carbonation would serve it well. Finishes pretty clean. Decent to try once every now and then.

Diving deeper into Japanese beer I stumbled upon this biutiful beer. Yes it is not the most complex Porter out there, but it has some nice overall qualities.

The notes of dark roast, coffee and a hint of toffee hits your mouth when tasting this beer. The head stays and does not disapear. A very good porter.
