colui72 (938) - HONG KONG - APR 29, 2016
Black with a medium beige head. Roasted malts and coffee in the nose. Light in the palate, with a strong dark malt character and hints of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Sticky, soft carbonation, quite tasty. A very decent classic stout.

Ernest (7624) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, husks, dark chocolate), with a hint of berries. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A rather industrial, simple, grainy-husky beer. Since I got this in Maui I feared it would be badly oxidized, esp. considering dark beers show oxidation a lot more readily, but to my surprise there was no trace of cardboard in either the nose or aftertaste. Too bad its not a better beer.

Wombata (623) - Kobe, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle from Yamaya in Ashiya. Aroma: Charred/heavy roasted coffee beans, rich dark chocolate. Palate: Light-Medium bodied and very smooth with pleasant mouthfeel. Flavor: Rich chocolate with smoky burnt, somewhat bitter coffee. Some bready character on the mid-palate. Comment: Good, though I would like the bodied not to have thinned out so quickly. A fuller, richer body, like Tazawakos Dark Lager, would earn it several more points.
