3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Seijo Ishi in Shinjuku station. Poured into a shaker pint. Deep amber and rich brown color with a nice tan head. One of the darkest ambers I have experienced. Nice lacing for an amber. Nice prune, raisin aromas on the nose with vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon, toasted malt and caramel undertones. A bit of resin and pine needles come through as well. Nice balanced between malt sweetness with a touch of bitterness from the hops. Very well-balanced amber. Medium body with a nice medium dry finish.

Cask @ West Riding Rooms, Dewsbury. Slightly hazed reddish-brown, but more red with a thick frothy head. With its carbonation it feels a little lager like, although it’s slightly more ’ale’ in its texture. Its chocolate is mostly evident in its aroma, although it’s there in small quantities in its taste.
