3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2015 Tap at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Dark brown/ruby shade. Thin head. Aroma is cherry, chocolate, cola, smoke, burnt marshmallow. Taste is a little rougher and harsher which is a shame. Fairly chewy and thick mouthfeel. Aroma gives it real potential but it couldn’t really live up to it.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
로코비어 브루-제너럴 윈더 시즈널 7% ABV 코끝에 닿는 약한 알콜 기운, 제법 질량감 있게 빨려나오는 짙은 고동색 텍스트. 약한탄산, 재빨리 사라지는 헤드. 맥아의 단맛이 잔잔히 펼쳐지는 편안한 윈터시즈널 하루종일 부슬부슬 비내리는 으스스한 봄날 유통기한 보름 남은 윈터 시즈널 따는 기분도 나쁘진 않다. 여성분들이 운영하시는 치바현 사쿠라시 소재 브루어리. 봄이라 그런지 몸이 근질근질한게 쑤시거나 할퀴어대는 맥주가 땡기는 군요.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Asahiya, 7% served in a snifter it pours a dark inky black with a slight beige head that disappears quickly leaving a delicate ring clinging to the sides of the glass. It has a rich meaty aroma of chocolate & tangy dark fruits. The body is a bit on the thin side but the mouthfeel is nice enough. The taste is pretty good, dark chocolate, some tart berry flavors & a roasty chocolate finish. Pretty nice, it reminds me of my own Cranberry Christmas Porter...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is pronounced maple syrup, yeast, milk, amber malts and malted barley syrup. Dark magenta appearance with a brown tint. Taste is thin with slick toffee, maple, milky yeast, cinnamon and brown sugar. Overall, very unique brew with nice malty flavors.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Sweet spicy roast malt nose, cola, and some dark dried fruit. Medium translucent brown color. Thick malty initial with raisin and dark sugar / finish is light and sort of balanced. Medium body, slick and a little oily. Tastes more like a bock wannabe than an old ale.
