Bottle poured into 2/3 pint glass. BB 03/18.

Hmmm. This is a really good coffee stout. Really rich and roasty with dark chocolate, a bit of black cherry and a tonne of fresh coffee. Thickish mouthfeel and an everlasting finish. Impressive stuff from Kiuchi Brewery. Love it. Cheers!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 11.2 ox bottle into a snifter
L- Deep chocolate brown with high carbonation and a mocha head. Almost has the appearance of actual coffee rather than stout. Even has visible pieces of espresso beans floating around inside.
S- Primarily espresso and dark chocolate, as well as vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, yeast, molasses, nutmeg, and cinnamon
T- Flavor is intense and basically the same as smell but with even more emphasis on the espresso.
F- The mouthfeel is nearly identical to a cup of espresso. it has a nice amount of dry bitterness to balance out its sweet notes.
O- Probably the best espresso stout I've had. It is nearly identical to real espresso in every aspect, even having similar nuances to it's flavor. This would be an excellent beer to have with breakfast so I will have to hunt down another bottle.

Beautiful dark beer, basically a zero head beer, sparse perally tan bubbles. Bitter espresso flavors and a slick easy drinking mouthfeel. Body isn't overly heavy.
