Sweet. And I like sweet... without being too sweet.
Skikkoku Looks and Smells like a good copy of this Bavarian style. Its Taste is better than most North American renditions because the hops are more modest. (I know they are in there, but barely discernible.) Feel has modest bubbles. Medium body balanced to the end.

333 ml stubby bottle. Pours a dark brown-black in colour with a thin layer of tan froth, retention relatively poor, although the brew is well carbonated. Aromas are dominated by roasted malts mainly, reminds one of a porter or dry Irish stout.Taste is somewhat more complex, in addition to the roasted malts, there are hints of chocolate, mixed in with some sweetness and a creaminess from the carbonation, giving the relatively light body a much fuller mouthfeel. Nice, rich and satisfying, don;t let the lager label fool you into thinking this is a commercial knock-off!

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.
