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

A bottle I purchased recently at the Buford Highway Farmers Market. Japan has long been known for their take on stouts, and I was looking forward to trying another example. At first look (and taste) this had all the makings of a very nice stout. Poured quite black with a decent head, but no gusher. Smelled nicely roasty with bitter chocolate and coffee notes. The initial taste had more of that quite nice bitter chocolate, a nice creaminess, a hint of coffee and licorice, some nice roasty notes....and then it went wrong. Mid-palate you get smoke and then at the finish band-aid. This beer, to my taste is infected, or conversely, badly made and contains off flavors that greatly detract from the experience. As far as I could tell, it didn't have a freshness date (although there is a code on the bottle that might be, but if so, I couldn't interpret what it was trying to tell me), and the taste wasn't old....it was of infection. Disappointing, especially as this wasn't cheap. Oh well.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and cookie dough aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but smells a bit better in terms of stout characteristics.

Bottle poured into a goblet.

A: Large head that took a while to calm down. Very dark black, a tiny bit of light in the bottom.

S: Sweet, milk chocolate, carmel, slight dark chocolate as well.

T: Starts nice and sweet, milk chocolate is present. Middle is slightly smoky. The smoky sweetness quickly turns to burnt chocolate and dark chocolate, with a slight coffee taste in the finish.

M: Quite creamy, no sign of the alcohol.

O: A solid stout. The overall smoothness and burnt chocolate finish stand out in this one.
