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!

Scipio (1272) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2018
Pours a deep brown with a thin beige head. The aroma is lighter and has roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, nuts, and some thin earthiness. The taste is also a bit light, but it is pleasing. Flavors are a balance of chocolate, coffee, licorice, with subtle amounts of roasted malt, caramel, and nuts. The aftertaste is a minor chocolate. Its medium in body, with a smooth, creamy texture, and is soft in carbonation. Nothing wrong with this one, but you should be able to find better options.

Bevuta in bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, due dita di schiuma beige. Al naso molto pulita ed equilibrata con un buon tostato e leggero caffè insieme al biscotto. In bocca non troppo impegnativa e bella rotonda ti impegna tutta la bocca. Buon prodotto
