KyotoLefty (9388) - 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.

15/IX/13 - 33cl bottle @ post-Zwanzeday tasting at home - BB: 14/XII/2013 (2013-867)Thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing the bottle!

Clear red brown beer, aery beige head, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, sugary, some dried fruits, toast, bit nutty. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: little sugary, bitter touch, some caramel, bit salty, toast, thin. Aftertaste: salty touch, mocha, umami, bit toasted, hint of dried fruits, bitter touch, but overall a watery impression. Too bad, cause the smell was so promising!

Medium tan head. Hazy opaque black body with ongoing carbonation. Fruity red beans aroma with toffee and caramel pudding notes. Dry-sweet toffee and rice pudding taste with grassy notes. Fullish body. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish fruity soy sauce aftertaste with licorice and alcohol notes. Nice, unusual, and harmonic. Very drinkable. (0.33l bottle, JR Takashimaya, Nagoya.)

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 (4656) - 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 (3030) - 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.

Davros (2810) - 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.
