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 this beer with some veggie sushi. It paired nicely with the spiciness of the roll and the umami of the shoyu. If you like stouts, this is a safe bet.

I'd love to try it on draft, and I wish it wasn't so expensive (maybe that was just the place I got it-- I paid $5.50 for a bottle-- but I was just glad to have a stout in a sushi place, which I wasn't expecting).

The maltiness was awesome, and it didn't have the Pine-Sol hoppy tinge at the end like some "stouts" do (I'm looking at you, Storm King).
