faroeviking (11211) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - APR 8, 2017
Botella. Deep dark brown colour, medium light brown head. Sweet roasty malty aroma. Flavour is sweet with roasted malt, some chocolate and bit dark fruit. Thin like.

KyotoLefty (10675) - 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.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2007
My Bottom Line:
This Sweet Stout develops plenty of chocolate and spicy vanilla for its chewy body, yet remains somewhat linear compared to the greats of its category.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the total darkness.
-Some fitting tartness follows the main flavor attributes.
-The nose isn’t as expressive as the flavor profile.
-The sweetness carries minty topics.
-Carbonation is soft and works with the well-developed body.
-Roastiness doesn’t balance out all the sweetness, but still participates in the flavor profile.

Bottle; thx Tim!

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.

TimE (6119) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2007
Note: Kokuto mean Brown Sugar in English. Pitch black color. Dark brown head. Brown sugar nose that is kind of one - demensional and misleading. Its misleading because the mouth sings of dark chocolate, vanilla, brownies, cooking chocolate and molassess. Molassess and dark chocolate persist in the finish. A bit thin, but that didn’t destract too much.
