Oyster Black – Sapporo

Sapporo is not a craft brewery I know but they do make some small batch beers that they only sell at the brewery in Hokkaido, Japan.  Steve went to Japan recently and brought back a bottle of their “Oyster Black” a Schwarzbier to share.  The beer pours a deep brown colour with a light brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, smoke and a mild metallic note that is normal form Oyster beers.  The flavour is of roasted malts, chocolate, mild metallic, salt, earth and a semi sweet finish.   The alcohol content comes in at 5%.  I don’t ever reach for beer from Sapporo but if you make it to Japan make sure to head to the brewery and pick up a bottle of this beer as it is very enjoyable.
