elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Pours an opaque dark brown-black, with an extremely pillowy tan head. In fact, the frothiness of the head and its utter hugeness may be the most prominent aspect of the beers appearance. Aroma is mainly of roasted malts, with strong chocolate overtones. The malts completely dominate the beers aroma. Taste is of toasted malts, with a chocolate flavor that almost matches the aroma. Some hops are discernible, but they are very much in the background. This beer is very sensitive to temperature, and taste changes as the beer warms a bit--improves. Mouthfeel is just a bit disappointing. The beer pours thick, but it tastes thin. I expected more body.

Very dark brown with a taller, dense, dark tan head. Pale and toasted to roasted malt aromas. Sweeter start with malted milk and lightly roasted grains. Hints of dark chocolate. Darker grained bread in the finish. Linger is lightly dry and a bit lactic. 6/11

Can share thanks to Theydon on 90015 on 21/10/16. Whopper. Poured a reddish brown with tan bubble head that dispersed. Nose is cocoa, dark malt and sugar. Taste is a weakish chocolate Cocoa Brown sugar mix. Bit flat and no real body.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2016 Can on the train back from Norwich, 21/11/16. Cola brown with an initial decent tan head of bubbles that eventually prickle away and dissipate leaving a rather tired looking beer. Nose is cocoa powder, sweet malts, toasted brown sugar, dark fruit dusting. Taste comprises chocolate biscuit, trace of liquorice, light charr, soy sauce, toffee. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a light hop tingle. Sub par porter.

jbruner (4206) - 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.

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.
