Beneath the cool facade of the warrior, a red-hot flame of intensity, determination and, yes, anger burns. So it is with this unpredictable Brown Ale: fleeting malty sweetness and warmth hide complexity, a barely controlled bitterness, and, naturally, a bit of an angry edge. You’ve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

Benfi (490) - DENMARK - MAY 5, 2013
Pours an orangey yellowish-beige head. The nose has big resin and light citrus with toffee and caramel malts. Sweet aroma with tons of resin. Flavor is rather light and sweet with ttons of resin and a smack of flavorful hops...not overly bitter though.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Rich caramel, like a burnt brown sugar color, large foamy light beige head, nice lacing.   Soft roastiness on the nose, very pale hops, slightly citrusy.   Not a robust or big porter, at least by the looks and smells.   A bit more fruity and citrusy on the tongue than others, not terribly hoppy, or overly roasty.   Mild Porter with more fruity/citrusy aspects than most.   Some caramel and bready notes on the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Lingering spicy citrus notes, caramel, soft roast, and sweet wheat bread like characteristics.   Not what I was expecting, but it works.

This is a very good brown ale. It has pungent aromas of toffee and caramel. The body is very smooth with light carbonation. It has a delicate sweet maltiness up front but a nice dry taste lingering in the finish. The bitterness burning within is very subtle. A must try for fans of the style.

ccex (893) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a cloudy medium brown with 2-finger beige head and good lacing. Aroma is full of roasted and caramel malts with some nuts, bread, and toffee. Taste is sweet with a slightly dry, nutty finish. Body is lighter than I expected. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth with only slight carbonation. This is the best beer from Japan I have tried so far, and a decent brown ale at that.
