PorterPounder (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Jacksonville, FL - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark, thick brown with a sticky khaki colored head, nice web of lacing. Aroma has some nice Christmas spice accents, a touch of horehound candy, Flavor has some molasses hints, a touch of dates, some chewy toffee notes. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Hits the spot on this cold winter’s evening!

From a bottle into a pint. Dark amber brown with light tan head. A little spice and malt on the nose a sweetness to the finish. Not their best effort.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2271) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2013
6% bottle from Yamaichi. A nutty brown colored pour with thin fizzy beige head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel, plums & toffee. Reminds me of a Marzen or Wee heavy in the nose. Taste is nutty, caramel, toffee but a bit rough, kind of some oxidized metallic notes-it may have lost something during transport.

This one poured a light red with an off white head. Aroma was caramel, light toast and some spoiled water. Flavor was light metalic, toasted malt, caramel and some grassy hops.
