3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Taniguchi. Rich, malty nose like a doppelbock. Caramel, chocolate, nuts, raisins, and a bit of sherry or port. Very chewy. Reddish brown, lightly hazy, with a low lacy head. Rich malty flavor, nice tangy fruits, rich chocolate fudge, good bitter and tangy to balance. I really like this. Nice acidity with some citrus and light bitterness, but balances out well. Not sure if I get chestnuts per se, but it is a bit nutty. full but not heavy. Very nice stuff.

75cl bottle. Poured into a snifter. Murky red brown without much of a head. Sweet toffee aroma to it, a bit of russin snd something I can’t really put my finger on. Flavour is very sweet with a pretty thin mouthfeel. I don’t know, pretty strange brew.
