Staining and woody aroma. The nose has sweet malts. Itís flavor is a growing fruity bitterness that change to an striking strength that comes from a greater maturity. It is a full bodied beer both good and strong.

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.

330ml bottle. pours quite a hazy muddy brown with light beige head. Aroma is a little alcoholic, hoppy, earthy and weak dark fruits. but itís 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 (52) - 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

It is with a due sense of resignation and dread that I review this beer. Why is it 8%? Am I stupid for buying this? I probably am, but in all honesty, I review this out of ignorance of any alarms telling me not to. Itís a darker colour than I was anticipating. More reddish peachy with nil head,nil carbonation and a slight haze. This does not mean that it isnít a good looking beer though. Aromas trend toward Bakewell tart, pastry, stewed peaches, nectarines and apricots. It is well runded and full in the mouth with some dessert sweetness and a tinging of mouthfeel. I am pleasantly surprised, happy and contented.

Tap at irreale. Opaque cloudy Amber, low golden lace. Bockish iron laced nose, fruited caramel base, a hint spice and salt licorice. Medium sticky body. Salty herbal caramel finish. A bit too sticky for my taste.

Johnsense (899) - - JAN 18, 2015
Aged bottle. Dark copper pour. Heavy bready aroma and taste, caramel, spices, dark dried fruits. Some barrel still evident. Fairly heavy body. Sweet aftertaste. Diabetics should tread lightly.

unclemike (2359) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Poured a reddish amber color with a thin, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, oak, koji, rice, a bit of caramel malt, and some spice. Taste of sweet caramel malt, earthy yeast, some smoke, vanilla, oak, dark fruits, light alcohol and a bit of tart citrus fruits as well.
