July 22nd, 2017 - Stop two on the great Shibuya craft beer tour is Beerfaucets, where I am trying the hand pump Side Beer Smoke Stout. A dark beer like this is an oasis in the desert of Japan, so I jump on the pint with inelegant enthusiasm, pushing my face into the thick foam and onwards to the beer. Light-bodied, the mouthfeel is quenching (good for the incorrigible heat outside) but the flavor is still packed with smoke and malts, without being too savory or culinary. It’s a fine beer, and goes down easily, mingling nicely with the scent of all the foods in the brewpub around lunch time. Baramba (1038) - ITALY - JUN 14, 2016

Dark brown. Ashy smoke aroma. Has a nice chocolatey body, with a smoky background. Good balance. Had on cask and the body was quite good. biirusaikou (2705) - - JAN 2, 2016
