COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this ale with the famous sake yeast No 7 from Masumi Sake in Nagano, Japan. On advise from Masumi’s master brewers, we fermented this ale very slowly at low temperatures to bring out No 7’s fabulously fruity character. This product is unfiltered and unpasteurized. Please enjoy chilled! Special thanks to Masumi!

Bottle at the mondiale 2014. Dark murky brown pour, with a light brown head. Aroma of booze, its the first thing that hit me. Lots more going on though, thick chewy malts, charred caramel malts, brown sugar, hard liquor aromas like sherry, and rhum. Lots of fruity esters, some stone fruits and the faintest of citrus aromas. The mouth feel is very thick and viscous, and the carb is super soft. The finish is super sweet, boozy and it manages to get even sweeter. This is the definition of extreme beer. This is over the top, and frankly too much and not worth the price. Interesting, but nothing more.

lesifflebiere (1300) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Liquide épais, rouge-brun, pratiquement sans effervescence, au nez en fruits rouge, prunes, et peut-être un début de madérisation. En bouche, c’est du porto qui vient en tête, avec un peu de boisé et d’alcool réchauffant. Houblons en finale. Une boisson intéressante, mais qui semble avoir un peu mal vieilli. Correct, quand dégusté tranquillement.

arsol (590) - NORWAY - JUN 14, 2014
Uklar brunorange farge med så og si ikke skum. Lukter alkohol, syrlig frukter. Fyldig og kjenner godt at den er på 13,5 prosent. Ganske søt som man kjenner enda bedre i ettersmaken.

MartinT (7974) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Alcohol heat, residual sugars and spiciness delve into hop bitterness in this simple very strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the deep amber.
-Mouthfeel is rich and warming, unsurprisingly.
-While I can’t fault the craftsmanship, I see no point in drinking something this strong which offers so little flavor or complexity-wise.

Bottle.

Mahogany color, tiny off-white head. Dried fruit nose, roasted malt, brown sugar, hints of wood and alcohol. Sweet, fruity taste, hint of yeast . Full body, oily texture, flat, warming alcohol.

Vighals (1247) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Grumsete brunaktig med minimalt lyst skum. Alkohol, svisker noe sylighet i lukten. Alkohol, med en del sødme mot brunt sukker og mørke frukter, noe vaniljetoner. Uten kullsyre.

Finn (4321) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Flaske 0,25l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Mørk rødbrun. Veldig uklar. Lavt tett skum. God sursøt aroma. Litt frukt. Oljeaktig munnfølelse. Vanvittig fylde. Smaken er mandler, svisker & plommer. Varer og varer. Avslutter litt tørt.

visionthing (2826) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2014
25cl from Vinmonopolet, Storo. Pours slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Malty with notes of dried fruits, yeast and hints of alcohol. Sweet, complex and quite balanced. A bit to much on the sweet side, but certainly a decent brew.
