Botella. deep dark brown colour. Sweet roasty malty chocolate aroma. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee and a mild bitterness. Sweet.

Can from Kent Boys. Dark chocolate aroma. Good consistency and velvety mouth- not oversticky. Delicious notes of soy sauce and rum. Nice bitter finish. Good quality stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjez (674) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 30, 2016
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!

willisread (3640) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2015
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.

minihame2 (746) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Black body, tan head. Faint aroma with a hint of roasted malts. Taste also has malts, some bitterness towards the end. Soft mouthfeel, light carbonation. Nice stout overall.

3.5
maekchu (4054) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2014
Can from DON liquor shop in Kuzuha (as "Iwate Kura Kuro Kura"). Big chocolate nose, roast malt, and a touch of light blonde coffee. Thick dark brown, with translucent edges, and very thin head. Very dark roast malt initial, gentle berries, some licorice. Very smooth, with an oatmeal feel. Solid bitter finish. Medium body, perhaps a little too light. Mild but very tasty, creamy, and light.

3.2
mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle.
Deep black with a small ring of head. Smells nutty along with toasted malt. Tastes nutty with caramel and toast. Pretty thin and uninteresting.
