COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kurofune (means "Black Ships") was the word the Japanese used to describe the American gunboats that came to open Japan to western trade. Kurofone Porter is sleek and forceful, but leaves a winning bittersweet taste of chocolate and coffee on the tongue. "Do not resist the superior might; cunningly acquiesce, and embrace." Kampai!

Christos (5432) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
(Baird Kurofune Porter) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a big shaker, ABV 6% Dark brown colour on the body, with a small and thin beige head on top. Low retention. Aroma of cofee, milky chocolate, toasted malts. Taste also of milky chocolate, some toasted malts, hints of coffee on the finish, basically follows the aroma but then weaker. Thin body, soft carbonation. Decent but nothing itll stay on your memory for long.

Arek (1083) - Zielona Gra & Wrocław, POLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland.
Prawie czarne piwo o gęstej i puszystej ale niezbyt obfitej pianie oraz słodowym, lekko palonym aromacie. W smaku lekko wodniste, proste, lekko słodowe, czekoladowe z łagodnie paloną goryczką na finiszu.
