worldbeertaste (1619) - AUSTRIA - JUL 13, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Carbonated dark caramel colour with a nice red tint and a lasting creamy beige head. Smells of a refreshing orange and chocolate with yeast and malt. Medium crisp smooth body.. Tastes of light Chocolate, malt then sour feel (orange), with some hoppy nutty finish. The flip from sweet to sour is really impressive. This is one cracking ale.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
This is quite astonishing. Fantastic aroma of toffee tinged with that aromatic , almost oak aged hints. Flavour is big, bold and powerfully bitter. Like Stone Arrogant Bastard but without the strength. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zacgillbanks (2255) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog website. A very dark red-brown beer with rich caramel, notes of malt, raisins, red fruit and earthy hops on the finish.

Brentv (327) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2014
From a bottle in Tokyo, pours dark amber chestnut color with a slight white head. Aroma of fruit and toffee. Taste is fruit, toffee, very slightly bitter, and slightly bitter on the finish, too. Almost no lacing. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, and nice carbonation. A very nice beer and a pleasure to drink. Worth seeking out again.

KyotoLefty (6299) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 I have had this beer a couple times on tap and to tell the truth it was always disappointing. Itís better from the bottle, and this rating is of one that was cellared for 7 months, and was much better than usual. Darkish amber. Strong hops and fruit aroma. Good malt in the as well. Only slightly sweet, some cookies and maybe chocolate and great caramel, cherries and other dark fruits. Good hops that linger on in the finish with the malt. Excellently balanced with head on barley and hops. Truly exceptional. The aged version was extra mellow and smooth.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - DEC 14, 2004
A slightly hazy medium dark Brown. Small beige head. Think "Bigfoot" at a low volume for the aroma, rich complex malts with just the right balance of the Cascade hop pine/citrus scent. Aggressive hops up front that like microscopic pit bulls, latch on to your taste buds and never let go. The malt flavors manage to sneak in the few scant openings between the hops teeth but make no mistake about it, this is a tribute in liquid to the love of Cascade hops!

kermis (4922) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2012
Draft at Brewdog, Camden. Pouts clear dark amber with a tan head. Massive malt aroma with some caramel. Flavour is malt, fudge and heavy bitter, going long into the finish.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle at home. Another success from Hitachino - complex flavours but deceptively drinkable.
