T: Roasted malt, sweet, chocolate. jbeatty (1247) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle, 04/15/2015. Pours black, bog frothy tan head with decent retention. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate malts, touch of coffee, moderate roast, light hops noticeable. Taste is full bodied chocolate malts, mild sweetness balanced with roast, dry woody bitterness. Medium body, rich and smooth, moderately high carbonation. Nice, well done.

Draught at Craftman, Kyoto. Slick black body, thin tan head. Roasted malt and a touch of coffee and vanilla in the nose. More carbonated than I like- but the flavours more than made up for it. Black sugar, plums, grape juice and espresso. Not overly sweet or bitter, beautifully rounded notes. Deep without being heavy. Fantastic stuff. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 26, 2013
Tap at Himalaya Table. Dark brown colour, small golden creamy head. Aroma is roasty, creamy vanilla, bit fruity too. Porter like. Taste is good. Roasty again, quite medicinal, liquorice, dark fruits. Pretty nice. Quite smooth and thick. Touch of spice and smoke there too.

On tap at Kura Kura in Kanda, Tokyo. I had seen this beer highly rated online but never saw it on tap down in Kansai so I was happy to see it on the taplist! It lived up to it’s reputation pouring pitch black with a nice tan head. A classic stout look. A nice malt chocolate aroma with the flavor being sweet, chocolate, caramel and a hint of burnt chocolate. The finish was a little smokey and even had hints of bacon. Excellent. Probably the nicest stout I’ve had that was made in Japan. sunevdj (4084) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2013

Bottle. Black with a distinguishing brown head. Black and chocolate malt on the nose. A dry, roasty palate. A dark chocolate, raisiny flavour, along with some woody notes. Warming. jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2009

Good flavors on this one, licorice chocolate coffee, light chilli
