Pours a caramel orange with a large, frothy head which is a slightly pinkish shade of white and hangs around for a while. Aroma is dominated by malts an d raisins. Taste is malty sweet, caramel sweet, butterscotch and slight heat.

GlassBrass440 (180) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 26, 2015
Pours a hazy red-brown with a small white head. Aromas of caramel, spices, and mandarin oranges. A crisp "autumn air" smell cleans out the nose in the end. Flavors of caramel, molasses, sake, and honey fill out the palate.

Very boozy nose with lots of roast malt. Highly carbonated mouth feel, with wood, a bit of smoke, some sour cherry. Quite tasty but not quite up to the standards of my favorite belgian darks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ulysse (256) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2015
Rich amber beer like aroma topped with sugary sweetness. Strawberry aroma. Reddish amber colour. Minimal brownish foam. Malty taste. Aftertaste of roasting tending to a certain degree of coffeeness. Carbonation is soft. It seems the Japanese know how to make Belgian beer :)

One finger head, malty woody sweet robust mouth feel. Rich and dark, lingering sweet finish with a mild bite. It's tasty...

330 ml. bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden red with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, fruit, wood, and sake. Taste is caramel malt, dark fruit, barrel, sake, and a touch of hops. Different in a good way.

olliejobbins (1185) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2015
330ml bottle. pours quite a hazy muddy brown with light beige head. Aroma is a little alcoholic, hoppy, earthy and weak dark fruits. but it’s a very nice well balanced taste. alcohol is well hidden. very smooth. slightly sweet, caramel, roasted malts and a finish of prunes and dates.

partchapol (54) - Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Smell of sour Japanese rice wine. Taste of rice at long finish. Good bitterness and right texture, it might smell and taste unusual for some people, but I love this. Like food, some people would sometime enjoy sushi, some other just keep eating hamburgers. Enough said
