Last beer in Japan. Pale malts aroma, weak coffee grounds, molasses, oak. Toasted malt, coffee, cream and barley. Not an enthralling stout but one that drinks nice and doesn’t offend. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 18, 2017
Draft, Osaka Airport @ Yebisu Beer Bar. Black colour, nice creamy medium head, steady, good lacing. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and some chocolate. Good mouthfeel, soft and filling. Sweet soft and well roasted malty flavour with chocolate, some dark fruit and a mild bitterness. Great fresh brew! mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2017
Tap @ Ginza Lion, Kyoto. Pours black with a perfect light grey creamy head. Mild aromas of chocolate and coffee. Flavours of chocolate, coffee, wood and cream. Super smooth, medium body. A pleasure. thellgren (1061) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Draught @ Yebisu Beer Museum, Tokyo. Dark ruby (almost black) colour with huge tan head. (Looks like Guinness Stout). Very smooth taste, this probably doesn’t have any roasted barly. Doesn’t taste dry at all. Which is just good in my opinion. Cantabrian (1131) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2016
Lovely beer. Do not expect an explosion of flavours, but it is dry, it looks amazing, it is ashy on the taste buds and creamy on the palate (it would take a 5 for the creamy head, but the beer itself is rather thin). Lovely dry stout from Japan. Something that is called "dry" and actually good here.

Draught at Yebisu Museum. Almost black with,unsurprisingly, a creamy top. Very smooth, but mild taste. Sublirony (48) - SINGAPORE - SEP 12, 2014
Tap at Narita. Pours quite black with a big head. Not very much on the nose,perhaps some treacle and a whiff of coffee. Taste is full and indeed quite creamy, but the stout finishes rather thin and overly acidic. Actually, not a bad beer. biirusaikou (2705) - - AUG 30, 2014
Mild chocolate nose. Very creamy indeed, low carbonation, mostly milk chocolate, cafe au lait, clean finish. Smooth drink but quite light and mild for a stout. ration (2238) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2014
190114. Tap airport, Tokyo Japan. Pours black with a creamy head. Aroma cream, roasted malts. Smooth. Very much like a Guinness. Not Bad. KansaiBeerLvrs (5153) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 On tap, at Arcadia in Osaka with my lunch set. It poured a nice black with a foamy tan head. A smooth creamy body revealed mild roast coffee & chocolate notes. It was pretty good, the highlight was the look & mouthfeel while the flavor was somewhat on the light side for a stout.
