I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear amber colour with almost no head. Aroma is mostly of caramel, sweet, malty, candi, some dried fruits, raisins. Taste is quite hoppy and caramel. Way too bitter for me. Bitter aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bb04/2016, konichidiosynkrasie for the excellent extrae. - Luminous auburn pour, luxurious polished furniture. Suave honeyed Maris Otter, tea-dunked madeleine. More black tealeaf bitterness in taste, getting more resinous plus sweet like candied orange pith. Love the cushioned sweet malt profile here against the UK style hop aromatics, with an almost, yes, umami savouriness coming in. Assertive lingering bitterness rounding off this intensely enjoyable Nippon-ESB with an austere bite.

Aroma crystal malt, honey, soya sauce. Palate medium. Taste dry and hoppy, bit more of body here and there and it would be a cool beer. Nice caramel aroma though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pretty dark brown. Aromas are roasty, slightly smoky, nutty. A bit more bitter than I was expecting, with dark malts leaning more towards smoky than roasty. Would like a little smoother carbonation, but altogether a solid amber ale.

Deep plum aroma. Caramel malt, peach, floral hops, bittersweet finish. Elegant and well-rounded amber ale with quite a Belgian character.
