Medium brown color. Big brownies, chocolate cake and dark fruit nose and slightly sour. Big dry fudge, lots of port, plums, cherries, slightly sour. Amazing depth. Big fudge finish.

Bottle poured into snifter. Black with a lovely two fingers of tan foam. Citrus aroma off the top, licorice, leather, light chocolate, roasty. Creamy dark chocolate taste, roasted malt, light anise, soy. Really easy smooth drinking, it has that gentle tickle of carbonation like other Yorocco beers, medium-full feel. Another tick for Yorocco. maekchu (4171) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 11, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 Bottle at Tadg’s (Yorocco Beer Kansai Debut event). Deep chocolatey nose, dark fruit, light red wine notes, and small alcohol fumes. Dark thick brown color, with a creamy dark tan head. Flavors of dark fruit, sweet maltiness, overripe dates, and a considerable phenolic note in mid and final. Medium body. Smooth, rich, and fruity. Very good. KansaiBeerLvrs (5568) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 6, 2016
Bottle from the brewery served in my stout glass. Yorocco Black Saint 7.5%
An Imperial Porter. It’s got a great fruity aroma of citrus & grapes/raisins, some mild chocolate and a certain savoury almost soy like quality.
Fairly full bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. The taste is great like freshly baked brownies with a hop bite, also citrus, chocolate and just a hint of roasting in the finish.
This and the Kinkan Blond are probably my favorites from Yorocco so far. KyotoLefty (10920) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2016
Bottle. Nose of chocolate, some citrus and hay, minerals, some soy sauce, berries, and fruit like fresh plums. Rich, rich cocoa flavor, with soy, brownies, raisins, biscuits, and fresh fruit. Rich, velvety, and full. Great. Lovely black with a beautiful head.

Bottle shared. Thanks Davido. Slight Belgian yeast nose with big chocolatey cacao notes, plum, some cookie dough and light smoke. Taste is rich and creamy with a milk and cookie like image coming to mind. Dry finish with more cacao and light smoke. Fantastic beer from Yorocco. jonno (3032) - JAPAN - MAR 12, 2016
Decadent and harmonious, which seems to be a house character. Rich and rewarding. Dark and stormy, can feel the joy of producing this beer coming through. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Thanks Davido! Great stuff, light spiciness, bit of smoke, booze is hidden, plummy, bit of choc. Light hoppiness. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from the brewery. Great looking pitch dark brew with a lasting brown head. Rich dark chocolate, notes of raisin and cherry, caramel cookie, gentle smokey and milky notes, dry finish. Another lovey brew from Kichise-san, glad he pushed up the abv a bit for winter time.
