Bottle. Black beer with a strongish light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is quite mild with a sweet malty'ness and a hint of milky chocolatyness . Overall a nice gentle sweet stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Sweet aromas of milk chocolate and toasted notes. Pours a very dark brown with very little brown head. Lives up to its name in sweetness, almost a desert beer. Not very complicated but pleasant enough. Fizzy moutfeel for a stout and almost no bite to balance the sweet. I expected better from Hitachino.

saintbase2 (114) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Barwa ciemnobrunatna, prawie czarna, nieprzenikniona. Piana obfita, wysoka na dwa palce, koloru beżowego, drobnopęcherzykowa z nielicznymi średnimi pęcherzami. Po paru chwilach redukuje się do postaci obrączki przy szkle i tak utrzymuje się do końca. Lacing średni. Aromat palony, lekko kawowy plus suszona śliwka i rodzynki. Smak delikatny, czekoladowy, lekko kwaskowy, "rozpływa się na języku", czuć laktozę. Na finiszu suszone owoce i lekka goryczka kawowa. Warka: 02.2017

Scipio (1273) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2017
Pours a deep brown with a thin khaki head that doesn’t last long at all. The aroma is roasted and has a blend of chocolate, coffee, and licorice, with some lighter caramel. The taste is dry and quite bitter. Even though this is advertised as a sweet stout, I don’t think this is very sweet at all. Instead, its kind of sour. I find that the licorice is the main theme with this one, though a healthy chocolate flavor does rival that. Long and heavy licorice finish. Light in body, thin in texture, and average in carbonation. Not the best stout, but it is different and worth a try.

tastes like metallic dishwater, maybe a bad batch since based on the description sounded delicious.

Bottle. Pours a almost black color with a small beige head. A light sweet nose. Sweet cocoa, cola, caramel, very big flavor. Surprised that this is 4%.
