Draught @ Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Rated on 05.09.2011Hermod (7841) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Looks a lot like guinness. Aroma is roasted with hints of peat. Flavour is roasted with peat and some bitter coffee. Real-ale -like palate is a bit watery. A decent Guinness clone but the bitter coffee disturbs me a bit.
Bottle from Koht. Poured black with a thin brown head. Milky sourness in aroma, roastedness, milk chocolate. Flavor has lactose sweetness, chocolate and chalk. Not a fan of these kind of beers. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2012
On tap at Popeyes in Tokyo. Dark purple to black with a modest head; really strangely watery texture, next to no carbonation; light but unconvincing peat and cocoa powder. Dull finish Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2015

Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with a note of wood.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Interesting aroma with...wild yeast? Nah, couldn’t be. A bit thin, but a nice balance. I must admit I rather liked this.
