maekchu (2356) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Yeasty nose, with roast malt and maybe a bit of smoke. Dark brown color with ruby edges, big head initially, and some good lace. Soft raost malt initial flavor, light caramel, bread, light cola, and some grain. Medium body, soft on the tongue. This one popped out with a gush and then settled down slowly. A tasty dunkel. No nonsense stuff.
