Burnt Chocolate malt. Pours dark brown. Americans think this is English style ale ! I suppose it is if you like malty 'mild'. Really too sweet for me but its ok for a change.

Nutty malty smells. Pours a deep clear brown with a small white very fast dissipating head. Only a little lacingTastes of caramel, malt and brown bread. Almost flat such little carbonation. An okay brown. Carlisle (745) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2017

Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light coffee, cocoa, and nutty candy bar. Deep brown color, with mahogany on the edges, very pretty. Cocoa, ripe dark fruit, toffee, and piney hop. Light-medium body, very smooth. Delicious stuff, Very nice nose, too. A dull style tricked out in finery. rob19a (349) - - JAN 10, 2017

1pt 6fl oz bottle at home from FirmaBier. Nose is cocoa. Body is hazy brown, head is small, offwhite, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, brownie, biscuits, raisin. Medium sweet, medium better. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Easy dessert beer, simple but tasty, perfectly balanced, nice one. Toxophilly (26) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Decent reddy-brown hue and not crystal clear, with a small but fine ivory head. The aroma’s woody, with some yeasty aroma like a Champagne, and a rich caramel or dark toffee. In the mouth it’s not too sweet, but burnt and dark sugars suggest sweetness. The clean, dry finish does it great favours and keeps it from being sickly. Could definitely session this. The body is rather flat, but perhaps they were aiming for the famous carbonation (or lack thereof) of British ales, so I’ll allow it! Overall, though not my favourite style it’s pleasant and I could drink a few. I do find the sky-high score here on Ratebeer a little baffling though.
