look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

350 ml can in Kyoto at a temperature of about 57F.

Pours essentially black with a tall, thick, beige head that has excellent retention.
Medium-light strength for style with mild bitterness.
Feel: Super creamy smooth feel in the full but not thick body.
Overall: excellent! Markedly better than the over-rated Minoh Stout I had the same day.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look: It pours dark brown with a brown head. It has a thick head that is light brown with moderate retention.

Smell: It has a sweet rich malty chocolate aroma to begin with. There is a bit of roast in the background. In addition, there is a very low fruit note.

Taste: There is a balance in the flavor that is more towards the roasted malt with the chocolate in the background. There are low notes of fruit. The finish is a balance between the dry roast and a hint of sweetness.

Feel: It has a moderate body with moderately low carbonation that is a bit silky.

Overall, this is a showcase of roast and chocolate with a tinge of sweetness throughout the taste.

350ml Can from Liquor Mountain, Kyoto (¥246):
An okay Japanese stout that featured some pleasant roasted malts & some interesting smoked flavours in the early going, although the latter was fleeting. The beer was balanced but basic with some coffee & chocolate coming through at times too, definitely worth a try if you're in Japan but I'm not entirely sure it's one I'd put on the 1001 beers list.

It pours jet black with a tan head. The aroma is metallic but also with some coffee and burnt bread. The taste is rich, with more coffee, some dark chocolate and some burnt notes.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

330 ml bottle poured into pint glass

A: Pour dark brown light comes through around the edges when held up, nice creamy full tan colored head, good retention and lacing, looks thin.

A: Light roasted coffee and malts, sweet sugar note, toasted toffee and caramel note as well, light chocolate.

T: Follows the nose with the same notes of coffee, sugar, light cream, chocolate, caramel, slight oxidation in the finish, moderate amount of bitterness, finish has slight sweetness.

M: Light bodied, not as smooth as I was expecting, was expecting something smooth and creamy, not there.

O: Probably won't pick this up again, has all the right notes but needs more aroma and flavor. I also picked up some oxidation in the finish not sure how old the bottle is but it just arrived in my local bottle shop this week.

From Wasabi. In Teku glass. After dinner. 2006 batch. 5 days after BB date. Very smooth, with lots of chocolate and slight coffee notes. Like a sessionable imperial stout.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque in the glass with a thin light khaki head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, chocolate, hints of coffee and alcohol. Flavor follows, with slightly sweet dark toasted malt, cocoa, light notes of coffee and vanilla. Medium bodied with mild creaminess. A nice, smooth continental style stout with really pleasant chocolate component and light coffee. Not dramatic, but well integrated and a good representative of the style.
