Fantastic aroma with dark fruits, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste however is not that fantastic. The flavour is dominated by a sour coffee taste.

mrjez (723) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2018
Bottle shared at Maruho. Pours a deep dark black with a nice tan head. Black IPA-esque aroma, rich roasty malts with bright pine. Spruced pine hops present at the beginning of the sip, before it seques into a caramel roast porter, notes of coffee, a little herb and spice. It's super dry, it really sucks out of the mouth abruptly, and with a medium body you are ready for the next sip straight away. Enjoyable punchy porter.
