A smoky sweet, molasses-like malt aroma is readily apparent. Pours a moderate, dense, tan-colored head which soon diminishes and forms a lasting ring; lots of lacing. Body is black—no discernible highlights. The roasted malt flavor comes through clearly in the first few sips, along with an unwelcome metallic quality; light coffee; both hop bitterness and flavor are subdued. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the flavor is the lingering, nutty roastiness. Medium-light body with moderately low carbonation and a satisfying bite.

While not bad overall, the metallic quality is a little distracting and the flavor begins to taste of carbonated water over time. Very drinkable otherwise, though it could benefit from a more complex and expressive flavor profile.

I've had this one several times and I occasionally get one or two when I'm stocking up on its brother Indo no Aooni.

The color is black. The head is a light brown and stays around with minimal lacing in a lazy sort of way.

Roasted malts giving some nutty, chocolate aromas.

Hops and that strong toast action. I like the tangy feel to this one and it goes down easy at 5% ABV. I could have another. It's definitely a good enough brew, well carbonated and definitely good to session. I'll buy it again and recommend it too.
