Can bought at systembolaget. Pours Jet black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Taste is pretty thin. I expected a bit more from this one to be honest. Minamizawa (62) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2016
The notes of dark roast, coffee and a hint of toffee hits your mouth when tasting this beer. The head stays and does not disapear. A very good porter. AlutisLt (59) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - FEB 1, 2015
Dar japoniško krafto. Labai sausas nors ir porteris. Nors 5 laipsniai, bet alkoholis išsimuša. Bet 20 balų. klippx (53) - Solna, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Aroma smells like the Wild West, smoking guns and tar. Dark licorice, roasted barley flavor and an elegant palate. Pretty awesome for 5% joaopcf (46) - Shanghai, CHINA - APR 16, 2017
Can @ Tokyu Foodshow. Pours black with massive dark beige head. Aroma is sweet and roasted. Bitter roasted taste with some chocolate notes and dried fruits. Medium mouthfeel, smooth texture and low carbonation. Good balance.

Aroma: chocolate, coffee, roasty
Appearance: black, brown foam, rocky head
Taste: medium sweetness, lightly bitter
Palate: medium body, creamy, average carbonation
Overall: Very good porter BeerZombies1 (37) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 22, 2014
APPEARANCE: Poured out a deep motor oil black. Even up to the light you can not see through this. Small tan head that settle into a small halo.
AROMA: Very intense and in your face coffee aroma. Chocolate and molasses in the mix with a almost metallic cooked blood smell of iron hiding in the shadows.
TASTE: Chocolate right up front with the coffee. It literally reminds me of a mocha latte. Some bitterness in the middle, sweet malts some faint hops. Finishes smokey and toasty.
MOUTHFEEL: Very light body for a porter. I'm assuming that mixed with the low ABV was the intention of an everyday drinking porter. Minimal carbonation. Slight creaminess in the beginning but thins out on the swallow.
OVERALL: Very interesting and complex beer. Easy to drink, I will say this is the best Japanese porter I have had.
RATING: 3.5/5 Zombie Heads!
