Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Slightly oloudy dark copper. No head. Aroma is raisin bread, caramel, malt and herbs. Flavor is caramel, toasted malt, herbs, miso, seaweed, fruits and residual sugar. Light body with a slightly visquous mouthfeel.

floydian1 (929) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 30, 2009
33cl brown bottle. A clear dark ruby-brown beer with a loose rapidly dissipating tan head. Light aromas of sweet caramel malts and little else. Flavour is lightly roasted sweet malts with hints of dark fruits and very subtle miso soup. Softly carbonated with thin texture and light-medium body. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Rather lacks the wow factor given how expensive it is.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2009
Im not a huge fan of miso, but I really enjoyed this beer. Dark brown but quite clear, lively body, medium head. The nose was really quiet, I couldnt get much, some caramel and a gentle roast. Taste was brown bread, plums, raisins, and a gentle roastiness. There is a certain miso/beany flavour in the back but its very subtle. Palate medium and fairly effervescent. Surprisingly very nice!

KyotoLefty (6324) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown with an amber/red tint. Medium head. Aroma is a bit sweet, rich, with caramel and a bit of fruit. Good malt flavor, not too sweet, but rich, dark and slightly roasted, slightly meaty, with light miso flavors. Nice-somewhere between a dunkel and an alt. Rich but not sweet. Rather highly carbonated. the miso is incorporated nicely and really works better than I expected.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Tasted @ GJBF Yokohama: Light salty sweet malty flavor, some pale light malts and subtle hop flavor, not much miso, rust in the tail.

Capa (1993) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 16, 2007
@ GJBF 2007. Reminds me of a weizen, but with something added...like miso (I guess). Banana and sweet malts, with some yeast. Spices are noticeable in the flavor, but the miso adds something I’ve never experianced before. Really interesting. Not bad, actually.
