dark brown color. Very malty, moderate smoke and chocolate. Nice, but nothing too special.
(Note from 11 Jan 2013) Sorry Baird, either a mistake or an issue with the lines at Basmachi Tap room. I found this to be thin and "uninspired" with hints of plastic, artificial tasting. I’ve had much better offerings from Baird but this missed the mark. KyotoLefty (10263) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2012
From the handpump at Bashamichi Taproom. Nice cocoa nose, rich and smooth. Medium brown color, foamy, loose head. Very tasty with sweet chocolate, creamy. Luscious and supremely drinkable. Light but full and rich. A great beer. Much like a mild.
