Shizuoka Craft Beer: Izu No Kuni Beer-Premium Stout


I finally came to taste Izu No Kuni Beer’s 3rd regular brew: Premium Stout!


As opposed to the canned version which contains 330 ml the bottled version contains 500 ml!


Contents: 500 ml
Barley, barley malt, hops, live yeast
ABV: 7%
Probably filtered


Bubbles: long head, very fine bubbles, creamy, milk coffee color
Dark very dark brown
Aroma: assertive. Dry caramel
Taste: Soft but deep attack.
Dry caramel, coffee beans. Very little acidity.
Biscuits and bread appearing on the late.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing on a drier note and more coffee beans.
Stays true to the first impressions all the way through although coffee beans tend to assert themselves more and more with every sip.

Overall: very satisfying stout.
Dry and deep.
Very refreshing in spite of its stout nature.
Easily the best brew by Izu No Kuni Beer!
Although eminently enjoyable on its own would marry beautifully with BBQ food.
Would do well with a dram of whisky!
