Can. Silky Yebisu was pretty good, so thought I'd give this one a burl. Sweet aromas brown sugar, soy sauce and malt. Mild carbonation. Not nearly as sticky as I'd expected, but not too watery either. Good balance of richness and taste. Good stuff.

Lata. Deep dark brown colour, medium beige like head, bubbly. Sweet plesantly roasty malty caramel aroma with some light chocolate dark fruit to it. Roasty malty caramel flavour with dark fruit, bit coffee and chocolate, medium bitterness. Nice. PanMarek (460) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Opaque black pour with quick beige foam. Roasted malt in the nose with whiff of coffee. Medium body, moderate fizz. The hops are faint in the taste, but manage to compliment the dark malt. Slightly hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a deep brown with a full, smooth beige head. The aroma is mild, with coffee, roasted malts, and bread. The taste is slightly bitter. It has strong smokiness, coffee, roasted malts, ad some lighter chocolate and cola. Smoky aftertaste. This one is medium in body, with a thick texture, and has average carbonation. This is pretty good as long as you enjoy the heavy smoke. hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2016
On tap. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Roast, lighter coffee, and some earthiness.

Light brown head. Dark brown color. Not much nose but the mouth has a nice sweet maltiness with good amount of roastiness. I detected some dark fruit and caramel notes. Modest acidity below the sweetness. Very approachable. kajser27 (1863) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 6, 2016

Pours like cola, with a little beige head, quite fizzy. Roasted malt and a little liquorice on the nose. Taste is roast, a little sweet at first then almost a charcoal after-taste. Inbreak (6215) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015
