willisread (2018) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2016
Tap at CBM Koenji. Beautiful brown with some caramel on the rims and a finger of tan foam that lingers. Light floral notes, caramel, light roasted smores and tobacco. Rich, full flavors on the palate with average carbonation. As it warms the flavors become more pronounced. Some light floral notes as well. A bit sweet, but not cloying, with a dryness. Peppery finish. Very nice.

Nocturne (1674) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Craftheads, Tokyo. Dark brown shade with lasting tan head. Sakura comes through most in the aroma. The taste is rich with malty, earthy, tobacco and stone fruit notes. Moderately sweet with a fairly thick and slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Not bad on the whole.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 7, 2015
bottle from craft beer base osaka. Sweet doppelbock with alcohol well hidden. Big rich malt flavour and sweetness and little bitterness. A very nice example of the style.

dfearnley (1575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Draft to pint glass Chocolate, sweet malt, asuki bean, and cherry. Dark brown with a thin, but long lasting light tan head. This is sweet, too sweet for my tastes, and it needs some hops to balance it out.

Ferris (10744) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Draft - Roast malts, prune and a bit of sourness. Jet brown with a rich but thin brown head. Almost flowery, dark malts, molasses and some dark fruit. A nice example of the style.

Wombata (614) - Kobe, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
Aroma: malt, milk chocolate, cola, hint of molasses, coffee. Flavor: malt, caramel, intense cola, milk chocolate, yeast. Finishes with coffee and cola. Comment: rich full-bodied, good carbonation gives it some added complexity and lift so it does not come across as heavy.

Draught at Craft Heads, Shibuya. Clear dark brown - white head. Roasted. Dry roasted. Bread notes. Ok bitterness. Chocolate. Nice malty. Light hoppy.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4171) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at Bungalow, it poured a dark reddish amber black with a very minimal off-white head. The flavor was port like with a mild caramel sweetness. It had a great body and was smooth for 8% which wasn’t so noticeable. Flavorwise it wasn’t so complex possibly due to being served too cold or because my tastebuds were overloaded after a 9-course dinner! All in all a well done beer as I expect from Fujizakura.
