On tap at the White Horse. Big thanks to Doug, Jamie and Mark for arranging, facilitating and serving. Cheers Guys! Opaque black beer, residual tan head. Softish semi dry palate with a little prickly carbonation. Really nicely balanced. Dark chocolatey malt, trace of smooth coffee, not bitter. Nice balance of light orange hops. Sumptuos dark chocolate - coffee finish. Minerally freshness throughout. Softish finish with a trace of red fruits. Lovely! Another cracking Japanese beer!
