Got this and its imported brothers from the Seiyu Department Store online which is owned by Wal-Mart here in Japan. I didn't figure it would be much of a beer but the bottle was cool so I bought it. Poured a perfect black and smelled so much coffee I though I might be smelling a dish soap at first. A deeper whiff brings me into a deep, dark roast of malts and coffee. Stout? Porter.. Whatever it is, it's going to be thick. Taste was in line with the smell and I like it. No lacing now that its half down, but this brew stays complex and inviting to the end. I'd like to have this again. Click,click.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Jet black with ruddy highlights but a quick-dying and loose sepia head.
Prune, charred meat, black grape, and licorice nose – deep and dark.
Licorice root, molasses, black grape, a cold espresso hit in the middle, and herbal cough drop end.
Smoky, barrelly, almost port-like finish and dry anise linger.
Medium to full, chewy, silky.

Super smooth and creamy like all Italians. No hint of 9%. No sweeping strokes, but still waters run deep. Another integrated gem.

355ml bottle served in a tulip glass. 

A: First of all, a beautiful bottle art. Pours a deep brown to black color forming a big bobbled beige head. Good retention and tons of lacings left in the glass

S: Strong coffee and and dark chocolate in the nose. Notes of brown sugar. Roasted malts and earthy yeasts

T: Coffee and roasted malts upfront. Slightly sweet and slightly bitter too

M: Medium body and carbonation. Roasted malts and coffee aftertaste

O: Quite drinkable despite the reasonable ABV. Great beer
