Keg, Ant n Bee, Tokyo. Pours black with a brown head subsiding average. Scentless. Taste is light lactose and light toasted malt and notes of grain. Light overall. Finish is dense, grainy, and smooth. Great.

0,350l can at home. Unsure about BB date. almost black color, small coffee-colored head. smells parfumy, light citric, earthy, hints of chocolate, tobacco. rather decent smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of dark bread, earthy, light tobacco, licorice, some caramel. finishes lightly dry and roasty with earthy notes and licorice. a bit weird but overall good and drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2016 Black with a large beige head. Roasted malts aroma. Straight bitter in the palate, with a strong roast malty touch, chocolate, vanilla and good dry hops. Easy to drink and tasty. A pretty decent treat!

Pours a deep brownish black from the can with fluffy tan brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma of earthy soy under mild roast. Taste has more of the roast and less of the oxidation, nice mild chocolate tones and fruity yeast. Solid porter.

conquerex (14) - SOUTH KOREA - JUL 29, 2016
YOHO 브루잉 쪽이 원래 바디감이 약한걸까. 보통의 스타우트보다 특유의 쌉싸리함이 적고 캐러멜 풍미의 단 맛도 굉장히 약하다. 단맛은 없다고 봐도 무방할정도. 일본 제품이라 그런지 디자인은 좋은데 거기에 준하는 풍미가 아니라 아쉽다.

drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - JUL 13, 2016
5%ABV. Porter. Tapped out black brown. 34ºSRM. I’m guessing here because when it comes to the darker end of the spectrum I start to become less confident about color. Nose has smoke and the tang of ripe stone fruit. The smoke and slightly fruity sour of a porter is for me invariably reminiscent of curing tobacco with the sour smoky tang. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate has tons of dry ume, but without having the physical quality on the palate of being dry. There is woodsmoke, and burnt toast, black bread. Not much fruit in the palate, almost closer to the stout end of a darkly roasted grain beer.

thellgren (1062) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2016
0.33 l can from food store in Tokyo. Dark brown, almost black, big tan head. Taste has dry chocolate and hops combined with sweet malts. Quite nice porter or stout or whatever.
