Biscuit, grain. Caramel malt, cake, plum, mild sour finish. Not bad, plenty of caramel without being too sweet, very drinkable.

Draught at the Microbrewer’s Beer Festa in Hiroshima. Very light color, almost like a Vienna. Light body as well. Big caramel flavor, nutty as well, and not too sweet. A nice dunkel that avoids the pitfall of too much sweetness while still having good flavor.

Sweet malt, hint of sour fruit, copper, pours a small toffee head. Mild sweet malt, hint of fruit, light bodied, sweet and bitter. Average, but rare to try this one. Thanks to mr_kimchee for sharing and Thanks to Crockett for bring this back from "the land of the rising sun!"

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown color, with quick disappating light brown head. The nose has roasted malts, molasses and prunes, and a touch of fruitiness, which is pretty damn good for the style IMO. The body is unbelievably light has some chocolate and molasses notes. The finish has some chocolate notes and a touch of fruitness that blends well with a subtle alcohol twang. For a 7% beer, it hides it really well. Could drink this all night long
