3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from Takashimaya @ Nagoya Station. Pours black with a beige foamy head that is gone pretty fast. Aroma has a bit of mild roast, some watery hops and malt base. Taste is relatively smooth, a bit of carbonation attacking the tongue - but in general light body and velvety roast flavour covering the sensors. Somewhat sour mid-taste, transferring into longer slightly bitter and dry finish. Above average schwarzbier, quite drinkable but not that exciting.
roasty, chocolate, vanilla, black, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, fizzy. Beautifully black, appropriate white head that clings to the sides of the glass. Nothing special taste-wise, very light and easy drinking. High carbonation. Easy to drink I suppose would be the highlight here. melush (4689) - SPAIN - JUN 15, 2014
Botella de 33 cl, adquirida en Toyoko-Inn Chubu. Color negro. Sabor a malta tostada, lupulo, muy suave. Westkyoto77 (646) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Jet black in the glass, frothy head. Faint nose of wet cardboard, slightly fruity. A little too much carbonation for mine. Not awful, but there are plenty more black beers that do more at the same price or less. KyotoLefty (10675) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 2, 2012
Draught at 1020. Nice shiny black, low head. Roasty nose, woof, light licorice, light coffee. Light, fruity, roasty flavors; rather plain but clean and nothing off. Light body with rather high carbonation.
