COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar.

Schiuma non molto persistente ma abbondante. Aroma vinoso in principio per poi arricchirsi di frutta secca e pane dolce . Ottima in bocca dove i 9 gradi sono ben nascosti da note fruttate e caramellate. Finale caldo e persistente. Avenne altre!!!

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Ripe sugary fruit, yeast, buttered cornbread nose. Hazy deep copper color. Super sweet initial, concentrated peaches, some alc. warmth, seems like some barrel notes, too. Medium body, heavy carbonation. Pretty good. Overly sweet -- but why not? Finishes nicely, with some balance.

Bu dans un verre à montagnarde dans une bouteille. Une couleur ambrée et une mousse qui tient bien, cette bière cache parfaitement son jeu, elle est riche et soyeuse un must !
