poured smoothly with very little head.
aroma had hints of caramel, malts and coffee. the taste on the tongue was very bubbly , but not over bearing. Definitely not a typical stout feel almost like a pilsner feel. The flavor was pleasant, not overpowering or over bitter but eventually smoothed out at the end.

Poured a rich black with a thin tan cap of head that quickly receded. Not the best looking stout around, more head would be nice, though the chilled glass it was served to me in may be partly to blame. Scents of roast malt, black coffee, hints of dark chocolate and a very faint metallic aroma. A nice, traditional stout aroma. Taste begins with a large roast malt presence, mingled with dark cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate with a slight sweetness underlying the roasted and bitter flavors. Roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate dominate the middle of the sip. Finish is heavy on roasted malt flavors, with some black coffee present as well. Aftertaste is rich roast malt. A good, solid stout flavor profile that hits the style notes quite nicely. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a smooth, semi-dry feel. Quite drinkable and very nice. Overall this is a pretty good stout, fitting into the higher ABV classic stout or perhaps the export stout niche quite nicely. A good surprise from Japan.

Echigo 'Stout' @ 7.0% , served from a 330 ml bottle purchased for $5.25

A-pour is almost black from bottle to glass with some ruby red peeking out along the glass edge , with a small tan head that is quickly dissapating leaving a minimal lace ring along the pint

S-sweet & boozey , hint of smoke

T-smokey , not that big of an imperial stout , more 'RIS' perhaps , lots of chocolate in a slight bitter finish

MF-ok/good carbonation , full bodied ,

Ov-ok beer , decent imperial stout
