At Craft Beer Base, a can 280 yen to go and 560 in to drink in which is what I did. A very solid porter with some roast coffee notes and an inky black color with a burnt orange head of foam. Very nice value. Arve_Christian (5215) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2015
On can from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge. Black color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity ; roasty, leather , licorice and malt with dried fruits. Medium body & complexity . Good bitterness and balance. Very Enjoyable

Draught at Ushi-Tora, Shimo-Kitazawa, Tokyo. A light-brown, creamy head tops this black beer. Espresso and chocolate aroma. Meaty flavours combining with roast. Smooth as velvet and quite full-bodied. Excellent. jbruner (5124) - 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. kerenmk (5039) - 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.

Thanks to Eric for this can. Served in a tulip.
Pours black with a huge tan head and quite a bit of nice, streaky lacing as it falls down the glass. Eventually this settles into a thin cap that looks nice around the edges of the beer. The nose is pretty plain and is disappointing after viewing this thing. There is some mild roast there and maybe an undercurrent of chocolate, though that might be stretching it a bit. The flavor involves some mild roast and a touch of dark chocolate. The body is medium and it has an off-putting dry, roasty finish. An okay beer, but not something I would seek out again. Thanks again for the gift, Eric.

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.
