COEDO collaborated with author Haruki Murakami and the radio program "Murakami RADIO" (TOKYO FM), on which Murakami serves as DJ, to brew a special beer based on each other's ideas.
After tasting a variety of COEDO beers, Mr. Murakami decided on the direction to take, and COEDO's beer craftsmen created an original recipe.
This porter style is named after "Yami Kuro" in Haruki Murakami's novel "The End of the World and the Hard-Boiled Wonderland". It has a calm, gentle black color with a soft brownish-white foam, a blend of multiple malts, and a savory malt richness reminiscent of cacao and coffee, with subtle citrus and herbal hop aromas.
