4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2500 yen from Asahiya. 17.2% batch 57 A thick viscous pour like motor oil with a slight purplish dark brown head. Thick meaty umami aroma, some fig, plum or dark fruity notes to it. Wow, super sweet almost candyish at first followed by the alcohol burning down my throat! In the aftertaste I get roast coffee beans & some hints of dark chocolate. As I drink it tge sweetness starts to reveal extra layers of depth. Really interesting stuff, worth the money as a special treat. Think of it as a port rather than a beer because at 17.2% it has that kind of flavor profile! To be sipped slowly & enjoyed...

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
My perfect beer. Big sweet, and dark. Pours pitch black with a small head. No light gets through this. Had it twice, the original batch after it had been aged a couple years and the more recent batch, only a couple months old. The younger batch was much more "wild" with the alcohol being more noticable than in the original batch with some age on it...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Note: second batch of the beer contains 15,2% alcohol, according to the label.
APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, small stable beige head.
NOSE: little smoked, lots of burned malts, some chocolate, some coffee. As the beer warms up, it gets a lot sweeter and better!
TASTE: Smooth drinking, alcohol warming, some hints of coffee, lots of chocolate, long lasting taste in your mouth. When warming up a little, even more alcohol warming, gets rather sweet and chocolate is more balanced in taste, somewhat boozy even.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours black and thick. Smelling like chocolate, roasted coffee and hints of burnt caramel. Tastes like hell. First sip quite smoky and dark chocolaty. Second sip softer on the grounds of an excellent imperial stout. Third sip (in a row) you feel a sweet flavor that reminds me of the tokyo, but softer, yet present. A most excellent blend to me.
