kerenmk (4686) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 20, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks David Cohen. Black with dark tan head. A little sugar and some soy sauce aroma, also a little floral and roasty. Soy, roastiness, a little rich milk chocolate and then some nuts. Smooth, quite carbonated, full body, roasty finish with some raisins.

Palme (4686) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2016
0.355l can (I guess since its all in Japanese) @ Apollon. Quite deep and dark in the glass this one, near black actually and not much of a head really. A thin sidesticking brown film perhaps. Smells nice and roasted. Lots of chocolate here. Dark chocolate, rich cold coffee, cocoa hints and a little vanilla trace. Nice aroma. Light oily texture in the mouth, almost a little watery and its about average on the bubbles. Tastes alright also. Light roasted, dry burnt, traces of both cardboard and thin coffee. Lots of thin coffee actually. A fair one. 17.12.2014

emacgee (4672) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pours a nice dark black with ruby red edges and one finger of tan head. Nose shows some bittersweet chocolate and light coffee roast with notes of caramel and herbal hops. Smooth and chocolaty flavor with some roast and a light sweetness. Light bodied and low carbonation.

jbruner (4643) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2016
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.

nickd717 (4613) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 25, 2012
12oz can. Darkest brown in color with a half finger tan head. Roasty and chocolatey aroma with maybe just the slightest metallic hint. The flavor is dry and bitter with sharp roast, cacao nibs, molasses, and anise. Medium-thin bodied with big bubbles. A good, enjoyable beer.

Martinus (4597) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2011
Dark brown colour, quite small but thick and fluffy, lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, toffee, spicy hops, slight milk chocolate, slight vanilla. Flavour sweetish, roasted malts, coffee, liquorice. Some bitter hops poking through. Texture a little thin, light carbonation, still very acceptable though. Enjoyable beer.
(From 35cL can, brought from Japan by a friend)

My favorite of the beers I tried at the Yona Yona Beer kitchen in 2017.Very black, a little toffee sweetness and a surprisingly bitter finish.
