this may have been the last beer or second to last beer of the night in tokyo. so please bare with me if my rate seems a bit ascue. brown clear liquid with no head. sweet rock candy alcohol laden nose. dark fruits and tobacco pierce your tongue and then are covered with a big alcohol taste. a bourbon laden beer with the same alcohol feel. BIG! would love to try this sober to give it a fair shake. makes since its 15%. damn i gotta wake up at 5am to go to the fish market!

Dark brown color. Big candy sugar nose with hints of milk chocolate, cherries, brandy, marshmellows and oranges tingle my nose. Surprisingly light body with oranges and cherries, but strangely the mouth is somewhat lacking depth, despite the great nose. Warming alcoholic, syrupy finish with rich chocolately maltiness.

On tap at Popeyes. Kampai, Popeye, Oppai! Definitely one of the best J-beers Ive had. Light mahogany with very little head. Aroma is very subtle and complex, mostly of plum, peach, and surprisingly little alcohol. The flavor also makes the 15% number hard to believe! Cherries, subtle sherry that comes out in the finish along with some alcohol coming back out your nose. Very good! I have to admit to rating this with a sub-optimal palette, and so I will definitely try it again (which I would have done anyway!)

Draft at Barkushu Club Popeye on March 31st, 2005. Dark copper color with no head. Strong aroma of caramel, alcool and hint of hops. Medium to full body, the flavors were leaning towards the caramel, toffee and a little bit of roasted. Alcool and bitterness were also present but not overpowering the other flavors. It was a very powerfull barley wine brewed with complexity! I wonder how old it was but it had definitely aged for a while. Hummm... encore, encore!!!
