Liked this beer write a bit. The biggest problems are that I got absolutely no head when I poured and the mouthfeel is truly lacking.

The color is a beautiful dark copper black, but again no head. The smell and taste both had a hint of bourbon though I don't think this is barrel aged. This hint is why I looked it so much. The mouthfeel is slightly syrupy up front but fades immediately. I really wish it stuck around longer.

Bottle poured into a goblet.

A: Large head that took a while to calm down. Very dark black, a tiny bit of light in the bottom.

S: Sweet, milk chocolate, carmel, slight dark chocolate as well.

T: Starts nice and sweet, milk chocolate is present. Middle is slightly smoky. The smoky sweetness quickly turns to burnt chocolate and dark chocolate, with a slight coffee taste in the finish.

M: Quite creamy, no sign of the alcohol.

O: A solid stout. The overall smoothness and burnt chocolate finish stand out in this one.

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.

Echigo's Stout. 7% ABV

A: Black in the glass, with dark golden brown in the dimple. 3 fingers of dark tan head. Some slight lacing.

S: Smells over hopped. Also, something I can't quite put my finger on. I wanna think it's some kind of mold? Maybe they used rice and koji in the beer? It's hard to detect the typical stout scents around it.

T/MF: Oh, that's weird. More of the moldy flavor. It's like it's floating on top of a light roastiness. I really do think they incorporated some sake into this, because the odd flavor does remind me of that bland alcohol flavor in almost all sakes I've tried. It's fairly soft, but with a lighter body.

While I appreciate them doing something different, I don't think it works at all.

Poured from a 330mL bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
