On tap in Century Break, Fujisawa. Colour is dark brown ruby at the edges. Nose is very fruity ale character, then chocolate. Taste is coffee, chocolate, lactic creaminess, and fruity ale notes. Like a fruity porter. douglas88 (9789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle bought on goodbeer.co.jp brought over by Steven and Mari. Pours a black hue with a large beige head. The aroma initially had some tartness, milky and chocolates. The flavor was a dry rich sugary chocolate mix, some metal and light tart fruit. Enjoyable. Full bodied.

On tap at The Aldgate, Shibuya. Deep darkness with tan head. Smelled of roasted toffee, coffee, some smoke. Flavour had some molasses, brown sugar, and sweet cream. The finish was crisp, dry and had a great bitter edge. Loved this one. TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2009
Thin frothy head, black but not thick and oily. Beautiful and strong nose of brown sugar and molasses. Taste was a comb of molasses cookie, dark chocolate, vinallia, and coffee. Fast and clean finish. nice. thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 13, 2009
Made with Japanese brown sugar. On tap at Wachi, Kyoto. Almost black with a creamy beige head. Solidly roasted aroma, some chocolate. Good balance between chocolate sweetness and roasted coffee. A very good stout that despite its name manages to keep the sweetness in check. KyotoLefty (10808) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2008
Black with a medium, dark tan head. Bubbles darker than most. Fragrant, sweetish aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, toffee, smoke. Very rich malt flavor, sweet indeed but not coying and well balanced. Good burnt malt dryness in the background, with lots of chocolate, molasses, plus a tangy, fruit-like (dark fruit) flavor, a bit of sour, that works to balance. Slightly smoky. Not terribly heavy in body, it goes down easy and seems refreshing. Tangy, sweet finish that turns to dry roasted malts, and the dry burnt flavor lingers long. A very interesting, very nice stout.
