This beer is really good especially if you like stouts. Sadly the only place I can find this beer at a local Izakaya (Japanese tapas).

Tastes fishy, metallic, and too light for a dunkel.

Had three of these at the Toronto Benihana restaurant.
Not sure if it was the atmosphere, and/or, company, but, I loved this beer.
I'm partial to dark beer, stouts, to begin with so it was right up my alley.
Wish I could purchase some here to give it a proper review at home.

The aroma gives off bread crusts, molasses, prunes, and a graininess reminiscent of Grape Nuts cereal. Not much retention in the head. The body is clear and almost black but not quite opaque as it admits some deep garnet highlights. The flavor is intensely malty with loads of bread crusts. There are undertones of molasses, caramel, and prune, along with some low-level alcohol. Leaves a toasted marshmallow aftertaste. The body is medium-light with moderate carbonation and bite.

Deliciously malty, though it doesn't seem to venture much beyond that quality. Still really loving this.
