maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Dark fruit nose, medicinal herbs, spice, and grain. Reddish amber color, thin head, and slow-slipping lace. Sweet malty initial, rich caramel, and a wine-like note in mid palate. Alc. is quite apparent. Medium body. Good balance, overall. Very nice nose; flavors are not as impressive.

Wanne (40) - - MAY 4, 2015
It looks very nice, a nice dark red-brown color with a beige head. Aroma of candy sugar and plums, with a vinous touch. Taste of plums, malts and coffee, again with a vinous accent. Not much in the aftertaste. Very decent beer.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Oct 13, 2006 On tap at Gollem. Red coloured. Nice foamy head. Tasty but quite bitter. It could be much better, really. Very strong kick afterwards - probably due to the 9 percent...

I didn’t really like it. It was too strong, and had no nice flavor, although it looked really good.
