The label on the bottle has only Japanese signs, so I guess this is the Porter.

Appearance is black with a fine laced head which settles into a fine layer. Every sip lacing stays on the glass.

Smell is mildly roasted.Notes of coffee and dark chocolate, mocca.

Taste is mild roasted, a little maltbitter and has a moderate bitterness. Nevertheless the beer has a good balance. There is very little yeast character, meaning a very clean beer.
The beer is subtle at all fronts. This does not mean that the beer lacks taste, because the beer is very powerfull for a 4.5% beer. Maybe the beer lacks a little on the body.
