4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Porteraccia da gara. Gusto molto ricco, che riempie la bocca e sguscia abile come un ninja con i suoi otto gradi fino alla mente, stendendola a rapidi colpi di nunchaku. Intense note di caffé, con sentori di liquirizia che le dona un’egelante abito di dolcezza accomodante, subito tradita dalla stoccata di amaro finale. Eccezziunale veramente!

Bottle from Yamaichi. Lovely thick tan head aboard a pitch black, shiny beer. rich chocolate malts, lots of umami and a bit of soy, plus some oysters. A touch of fruity hops. Nicely fruity, chocolate and coffee, light soy. Rich and lots of umami for sure. Very thick and full. Lightly roasty. Some citrus. A bit too thick and heavy, but good.
