COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented for an extended period of time, this dark brew boasts a stunning contrast between the glossy black tone of the beer and the smoothness of the modest pale head. This glossy black beer is called "Shikkoku," named after the famed elegant jet-black lacquer work of Japan.

Hazy dark red - brown beer, small cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts, touch of roast. Tangy unsweet dark chocolate. Pruney dark fruits. Smooth finish. Tangy malt linger. Not bad but a bit Porter like.

Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 19, 2017
Der dunkle Malzantrunk ist weniger intensiv als zuerst angenommen. Kaum röstig, milder noch herb, süffig. Nett. 10/8/9/9//9

mcberko (18977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
On tap at CRAFT Sukhumvit, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, a touch of caramel and some molasses. Flavour is soft, with molasses, toasted malt and some bitter cocoa on the finish, with an almost sour tinge. It’s decent, but doesn’t seem optimal in this state. Not bad.
