Draft at the Baird Tasting Room in Nakameguro, pours a great mahogany brown. Just a hint of strawberries on the nose. Not a lot of strawberry in the flavour, but plenty of tartness and rich malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of strawberries, chocolate, caramel. Sweet and fruity flavor with slightly roasthy caramel, dark chocolate, spice, and dark berry fruit, though not explicitly tasting like strawberry. Rich, rounded, full mouth. Nice balance, though on the sweet side. Tasty and interesting, with a slightly earthy finish and tame but solid bitterness. Fun.
