Pours a light brown with a hint of indigo. Long lasting tan head. Chocolatest on the nose, as well as dark berries, nice! Taste is sweet with blueberry and other dark fruits, slight bitter ending. Palate is watery with some fizz, a quick finish. Beautiful ale! Well done Japan!

I was rather underwhelmed by this. Got a blast of alcohol and little else. Not complex in any shape or form. I guess it was smooth...but otherwise nothing distinguishing about it &#40;maybe it would age well...&#41;

Light brown color. Brown sugar, milk chocolate, brandy and strawberries in nose. Slightly syrupy strawberries with brandy and milk chocolate in the mouth. Sweet milk chocolate with strawberries finish with a slight sting of alcohol. Nice winter warmer.
