3.65/5  rDev -0.3%

Blackish, dark-brown hue, with a tan, billowy head. Good lacing. Smell is sweet and permeating, notes of caramel and molassas.

The taste is wet and clean, highlighted by the soft and creamy mouthfeel. The slightly high, 7% alcohol, is hidden nicely by the excellent hop finish. The ending is a complex mix of sweet and bitter, like a high percentage cacao chocolate. Good stuff.

Both barley and wheat malt is utilized, which is pretty cool. Hops round out the ingredients list.

4.2/5  rDev +14.8%

350ml can, brought over from Japan.
Appearance: nearly black color, with a big, bumpy, brown head. Spot on look for a good stout.
Aroma: very nice! Rich, delicious, redolent with complex combinations: cocoa, coffee, anise, raisins, sweet and toasty at once.
Marvelous texture, giving, rounded and warm. Malty as can be, with only a trace of bitterness, and a very resilient flavor. Tasty, to be sure, and a reward for the senses everytime the beer revisits the lips. I quite liked it!
Thanks, UncleJimbo!

4.08/5  rDev +11.5%

330 mL brown glass bottle with a tabbed peel-off cap. Freshness date stamped on the label. Obtained at Popeye in Tokyo.

This stout poured a clear, dark mahogany brown color (almost opaque) with creamy, light brown foam that clung to the glass and left some lace. The smell was mild: malt, coffee, chocolate. The taste was sweet malt (coffee and chocolate) balanced with a mild bitterness (hops, chocolate malt). A nice flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with medium-full body and moderate carbonation. There was a pleasant lingering dry chocolate and hop flavor. This was a drinkable and enjoyable stout.
