One of the most original beers i've ever tasted! Black, with very strong cofee taste and sweet cofee and roasted malts aftertaste. Near porter, but more creamy.

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.

Bottle from Seiyu. I picked up a handful of seriously discounted ones and been sitting on them. Best-by date still far off.
L: pours very dark with reddish highlights and a big tan head that drops away. Some lacing.
S: has a deep-roasted aroma, aniseed, cigar ash, dark chocolate. Lovely.
T: similarly, roasted malts, cacao flavour.
F: has a lightly carbonated and creamy feel, medium bodied, alcohol well-hidden.
O: great porter this one. I'll save my last bottle for winter.

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
