Pours an opaque dark brown-black, with an extremely pillowy tan head. In fact, the frothiness of the head and itís utter hugeness may be the most prominent aspect of the beerís appearance. Aroma is mainly of roasted malts, with strong chocolate overtones. The malts completely dominate the beerís 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.
35 cl can a firend brought for me from Tokyo. Pitch black color, short relatively persistent dark brown head. Aroma is malty, dark chocolate, some coffee, burnt wood, bittering hops maybe. Taste is light bitter, well balanced, dusty texture, medium body, structured, relatively long and dry finish, light sharp/spicy. Quite nice. kanibasami (2) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2017 does not count
I had it in the can. So much for the aroma.
I had nori before, so my evaluation is now heavily confounded. But itís with mentioning that it fits nicely to minced pork with rice and nori.
It is a very round, charming, not heavy, not light, fairly creamy porter. For itís price (280•) I got more than Iíve expected. Itís more on the coffee and black beans side of the palate with a smooth bitterness of black tea (not flowery though).
I would have it again. It satisfies. Aragh (260) - POLAND - MAY 1, 2017

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a pitch black color with a huge brown head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is big on malt and very flavorful. An outstanding porter.
