Japan has many Kokutou Sweet Stouts but I am pretty Sankt Gallens was the first. Served in my stout glass. I havent had this 6.5% beer in years but it was part of the Valentines set so I am revisiting it. Its now part of SanktGallenBrewery / 元祖地ビール&# サンクトガー&# core line up and pours a cola brown with a thick beige head of foam.

The aroma is sugary sweet, molasses & chocolate buns. The taste is solid sweet dark sugar, molasses and dark sweet bread. Not a stout to knock your socks off but a decent one to chill out with on a rainy Sunday evening.

Great Japan Beer Fest in yokohama. Rich dark brown color with a nice tan head. Toffee, roasted malt and brown sugar on the nose. Nice roasted coffee taste with slight hints vanilla and molasses. Starts of creamy but thins out on the palate. Well balanced. Sankt Gallen is quite good with their dessert stouts and porters.

Pours black with coffee crema head. Aroma has a good bit of tasty kokutou. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, moderate sweetness with slight sourness and bitterness from the dark malt and a little sweetness on the finish from the kokutou. A little thicker and itd be quite interesting.

Bottle pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is vanilla with some chocolate. Taste is sweet - very sweet, with vanilla and chocolate, with a metallic flavor on the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation. There are some interesting flavors in there, but I cant get past the vanilla and the odd sweetness.

jinroh (1378) - ESTONIA - NOV 18, 2013
330 ml bottle from Precce @ Nakameguro. Stout that is brewed with black cane sugar, interesting! Pours dark dark brown with a nice head that reduces into beautiful lacing. Aroma is thick roasted malt together with some caramel sweetness. Charred black bread. Taste is not as sweet as I dreaded - initial carbonation kick gets your tongue tingling, followed by roasted bread, coffee-caramel bitterness, ending up in a sweet aftertaste. Black sugar is difficult to spot, it is well balanced with some hop bitterness and malty bread. Mouthfeel is nice and not too watery. Well done!

Bottle, cant remember where from. Dark brown/black colour with huge golden bubbly head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate sweetness, bit of vanilla, bit of smoke too. Taste is good, quite spiky, lots of roast again, bit of bitterness, coffee maybe, less sweetness, but the vanilla is still there at the finish. The brown sugar is there too, but not in your face. Less sweet than I thought it would be from the name, but there is a lingering creaminess to it. Pretty nice, and have to say I seem to like most of the Sankt Gallen sweets beers.
