Poured from a bottle, it has an opaque black with a fluffy, light tan head.

Aroma is sweet, malty with chocolate and some smoke.

Taste is slightly sweet, dark chocolate and dry fruit.

Full body, and some light carbonation. Dark chocolate and slight notes of spice and dried fruit in the aftertaste. Some slight hoppy bitterness too.

Overall, this is a mild, easy-to-drink lager with a good dark chocolate character.

A: Moderately low malt lightly roasted, with a dark chocolate like character, pretty clean with a light sweetness.

A: Very dark brown with a light garnet hue, almost black, clear, with a moderate tan head that has solid retention. There is some lacing in the glass.

T: Moderately light malt flavor, clean with a dark chocolate flavor, lightly bitter that lasts through the finish. Clean with a semi-dry finish.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation, pretty smooth.

O: Pretty solid; the beer has a great dark chocolate character without being burnt and is very smooth and clean. The beer would be even better with a little more expressive malt, but the roast aroma and flavor is very clean. All in all - a very drinkable beer.

Lovely example of a black lager. Head soon goes and the nose is earthy. Dark malt with a little coffee comes through and the hop bitterness is present but minimal.

Dark brown to almost black in colour, 2 fingers of beige head. No visible carbonation.

Lightly sweet, molasses, pumpernickel.

Toasted malts, a hint of molasses, lightly sweet, almost pumpernickel.

Medium body, slightly weighty, moderate fine bubbled carbonation. Smooth texture.

Found and drank in Chiang Mai. Really well done version of this style. Coedo does it again!

Coedo Shikkoku has a thin, cream-colored head, a dark brown appearance, some bubbles clinging to the bottom of the glass, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of vegetable matter (spinach, celery, beet juice), dark malt, subdued sweetness, and a touch of char. Taste is of all that, with minimal bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Coedo Shikkoku finishes wet and soupy. Overall, for a beer with a vegetable soup character, it’s drinkable.

Packaged on: 6/17/14.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, char, and cocoa aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid cocoa and char qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.
