4.6/5  rDev +12.2%

Opaque almost black body, with a small off white head served in a 12 oz. reisling glass.

Nice delicate chocolate and malt aroma. Slightly hoppy.
Well rounded chocolate flavor, they should rename this "Chocolate Porter". Firm but unobtrusive bitterness. This is great!

Smooth and rich mouthfeel, with a fine carbonation.

I went to a beer tasting, with this as one of the 13 beers available. After having this, I did not bother sampling the other offerings.

Pours a dark clear brown, almost black, with ruby highlights, and a thin dense tan head. It's a very pretty beer.
The aroma is complex and seductive, with gentle floral hops and malt notes of chocolate and caramel.
The flavour is rich and well-balanced, with chocolate and roast malts tempered by the noble hops and just enough bittering hops.
It is a warm and creamy beer on the palate, just inviting you to take another sip.
This is an excellent beer, which I recommend without reservation.

12oz bottle poured into my little hotel tumbler

Pours brown, lightish for a porter (it's right on the borderline of opaque -- if I hold it in front of the window, light comes through), creamy tan head. Little carbonation. Smell is roasty coffee, some coconut sweetness.

Taste is mostly coffee, but with some vanilla cream flavor, which is surprisingly nice. This would be very easy to drink in large quantity.

Mouthfeel is creamy with a slight grittiness. Overall, this is a pretty solid porter.

Pretty good stout, especially from a Japanese Brewery. Very easy to drink and the flavors are all around decent however not very challenging. Would have been nice to have a few stronger flavors in there and it might have been nice with a slightly higher alc. %.

Overall pretty good. Not as good as their Imperial Chocolate Stout though.
