330ml bottle. Copper resin colour with a flat layer of light brown foam. Nutty biscuit malt aroma with a similar taste. Very flavoursome and leaves a long aftertaste in the mouth. Nice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3055) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle from a random liquor shop in town for 470yen bought in honor of my upcoming trip to Nagoya. It pours a rich dark brown with a foamy beige head thatís slow to dissipate & leaves behind excellent lacing. A chocolatey aroma with some salty miso notes wafts from the glass. The first sips gives me a chewy & meaty mouthfeel. A smooth chocolate start segways into salty dark miso goodness. I had this beer for the first time years ago & it seems better than I remember. Nice. Maybe not the most complex beer but interesting & something that is truly Japanese. More for those who enjoy malty over hoppy beers though it isnít all that sweet.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011. Cloudy mid brown appearance. Very soft savory nose - malty with a hint of meat. Interesting flavour - buckwheat, dried beef jerky, woody fig notes (like a Belgian dubbel).

evergreen0199 (2387) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from my wifes relative in Nagoya, Japan. A dark amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Fruity, caramel aroma. Tastes fruity, caramel, malty and yet very Japanese. Couldnít really detect the red miso though. An interesting brew that is quite hard to describe, enjoyable nevertheless.

Davros (2323) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours murky brown with a large lasting creamy head and big chunks of sediment. Nose shows loads of rich malt. Lots of caramel, prunes, figs, caramelised apples, treacle and a big melanoidin character. Similarly malty flavours, lots more of the above fruit and caramel, almost candy-like. Also a savoury character shows along with some soft alcohol. Finishes weakly though with a hint of cardboard. Nice med-high carbonation suits the beer well.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - 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 Iíve never experianced before. Really interesting. Not bad, actually.

Bottle 330ml. Excellent beer. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Brown, with a frothy white head.
