Smell of this beer is excellent, and raspberry and cinnamon laced chocolate dessert, spicy and mildly sweet, hints of apple. Fluffy, presentable head.

Taste is smooth and plain at first, low and sweet. Then dips into some deeper caramel, cinnamon, and chestnut tastes. Slight tanginess present. Light hops. Creamy, sweet finish. Overall echoes smell very well. Great unity to this beer.

Light carbonation on throat. Smooth and drinkable.

They call this a stout, but it's really not that thick, resembling more a porter, but I read online that they use weizen yeast, I guess the same stuff they use with their other brews, mostly weizens. Very interesting tastes going on in this beer.

Too bad they don't seem to bottle it in Japan. Had on-tap at a Ginga Kogen pub in Tokyo.
