Poured into a pint glass at 45 degrees. The head is a creamy one finger and light tan with poor retention. The color of the beer is SRM 27 between a ruby brown and dark brown. The clarity of the beer is opaque.

The initial aroma is a medium-dark malt with coffee and chocolate. The beers additional aromas are caramel, with a sweet note, earthy, bready, and a touch of hops.

The first initial taste of the beer is rich chocolate and coffee flavors. The beer has a medium-dark malt with caramel, molasses, bready, earthy, and a touch of hops.

The mouthfeel of the beer is a medium body, carbonation is medium-light, and a medium finish.

The beer is an example of a classic porter. Wonderful flavors and well-rounded beer.

350ml Can from Bic Camera, Akihabara, Tokyo (¥288):
Quite an enjoyable porter & definitely one of the better dark beers that I've tried from Japan, this one coming through with quite a sweet but balanced taste than had a great combination of caramel malts & milk chocolate flavours as well as some earthy malts & vanilla in there. The beer was exactly what I was expecting from the style & it went down smoothly too, it's definitely one I'd have again if I could find it outside of Japan.

It pours pitch black with a nice tan head that sticks around for a few minutes and leaves behind some pretty cool lacing patterns. The nose is of coffee and with some burnt notes. The taste is fairly bitter with some slight acidic notes. Fairly light bodied. Little in terms of a carbonation bite.

Dark brown, nearly black. Dense, chocolate marshmallow head with solid retention. Looking great.
Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, raisins, burnt coffee.
Soft, powdery mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, quite bitter, dark roasted coffee. Touch of vanilla and maple syrup sweetens things a bit. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation.
It's big on the dark, bitter roast, so if you're down with that you'll love this. It's more akin to a stout in my eyes. Would be a nice winter brew!

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a pitch black color with a huge brown head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is big on malt and very flavorful. An outstanding porter.
