Shikkoku is a Japanese word that evokes the jet-black color of onyx, perfect for this enchantingly dark, slow-aged brew marked by an elegant, mellow flavor profile. Enigmatic shadows contrast sharply woth the brightness of its fine, tea-colored head, while the fragrance of aromatic hops delights the nose. Two types of black malt join 6 other malt varieties for a black lager that is smooth, light, and balanced-never cloying. Japan proudly offers this dark jewel to stand among the best dark beers in the world. Kanpai!
