A big surprise to find this in my rural Japanese haunt.
"Only 24 bottles," the sign said. How could I refuse?
I'm not a stout drinker for the most part, but boy, was I ever floored by this! The beer was nearly pitch black and the head was a color like chocolate ice cream. The head didn't leave much for lace, but it was the first thing I drank and the last thing, too. The first smell was overwhelmingly of chocolate syrup with only a little bit of roast to off-set it. The taste was much the same--it seemed identical in flavor and mouthfeel to chocolate milk. There was no hint of the alcohol (until I stood up) and the carbonation was nil, which really worked in its favor. I was floored, but and for /1000, I was not disappointed. I would definitely split a six pack of it with my girlfriend on any quiet night in.
