Pours a thin head with low retention on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is candy corn... not good.
The taste leads with metallic bitterness followed by candy sweetness.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
Too sweet, not good.

Got this from a friend who brought it directly from Tokyo, Japan. The color was a nice dark brown pushing into black. The head formed up nicely, and faded out over a few minutes. The aroma brought out chocolate, cigarettes and the lightest hint of hops. The taste was just a stronger version of the aroma...roasty, smoky, chocolate. The hops was hard to detect except for the bitterness.
