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.

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).

KansaiBeerLvrs (2361) - 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 that’s 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 isn’t all that sweet.

evergreen0199 (2135) - 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. Couldn’t really detect the red miso though. An interesting brew that is quite hard to describe, enjoyable nevertheless.

Capa (2031) - 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.

Davros (2029) - 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.

davidm (1949) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 30, 2011
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.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2011
It pours hazy dark amber, with red highlights, low carbonation and a foamy beige head. Smell of Caramel and plum, figs and brown suger. Dry feel, Huge range of Taste. Melon, cherry, chocolate, berries (strawberry) and a sweet dry aftertaste. Very enjoyable. There is a miso flavour in the back but its subtle.

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 (1058) - 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.
