350 ml can of "Premium Black" from Kyushu with canning/BB date stamps of 3/2018 & 11/2018, respectively.
Clear, dark brown body looks nearly black. A tall, foamy light tan head leaves ample lacing and has very good retention. Enticing aroma. More blase flavor, but still good with lingering dark roasted grain flavor and a hint of coffee. No burnt grain. Very smooth, medium body.

Decent stout. Perhaps better when not too cold.

This beer, along with the other line, can be found at their classic beer museum in Hokkaido. One of the better easy drinking black lagers out there.
