3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Izumi-Chuo Co-Op, as Kuro Kura 7%. Pours near black with some fizz and a frothy light tan head that lasts. Light roasty and chocolatey aroma, oat. Flavour is similar, a light coffee note, a slight unwelcome tang in the finish that fades. Improves as it warms, medium body with gentle fizz and quite smooth, coats the mouth. Not bad overall.

Can from Brunnsbe, cheers! Chockolate and some roast in aroma. Very good! Taste has choko and a hint of chili. Palate is medium full with very little carbonation and long lasting aftertaste. Excellent stout!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can under the name Kuro Kura which is listed at 7% ABV bought at Ito Yokado. Drank straight from the can. Nice roasted malt aroma with a hint of coffee on the nose. Slightly creamy mouthfeel initially then the body starts to thin out. Tastes of roasted cacao, toasted kitkat and coffee. The 7% ABV is noticeable and boozy on the finish. Really not bad at all for a can that is starting to pop up a lot more places this year.
