3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Hasegawa Liquors. Maybe not the freshest sample. Not quite what I expected, deep dark brown and malty. Heavy caramel malt flavour, spicy ginger and nutmeg, like dark ginger cake. A touch cloying and heavy. Interesting, but not convinced.

Bottle at home, one year past "best before date". Poured a dark golden color with a tempting head. Ginger and citrus as well as christmas cookies aromas. Lightly sweet, very bubbly and yeasty taste. Ok, but must try a clean fresh version.
