The other day a good friend of mine was kind enough to bring me this beer form the other side of Japan in Yamaguchi Prefecture!
As its sale is limited to its own production region, that is, Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, it’s the more valuable and I would found remiss if I didn’t report on its tasting!
Product name: Genpei Dannoura Stout
Ingredients: Barley malt, hop, yeast
Contents: 330 ml
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: very dark brown
Bubbles: very fine bubbles, creamy, long head, milk coffee color
Aroma: light and dry, bread, caramel
Taste: very refreshing and deep attack ending on a dry note with welcome acidity.
Dry caramel, bread, roasted oats, dry coffee beans.
Stays long enough on palate for true tasting before departing on a drier and more acid note.
Does not vary much with food.
Overall: Very refreshing for a stout. Straightforward and reliable.
Very satisfying. Great acidity.
A beer for all seasons for stout lovers.
Can be enjoyed slightly chilled or just below room temperature.
